Just opened an imgur account to test the possibilities of using them for 3d party hosting.

Seems to work. 

I did this from a PC. I uploaded to imgur, then opened the photo and right clicked on it. Clicked copy image address. I then wned to the POST REPLY screen on the CJ2A page. I clicked on the photo icon (the one with the little tree)  and pasted the  url in the Image URL box. (make sure you blank out the preentered HTTP when you past in your URL).

Hit preview to make sure it's working right. and voila. 

I see if I can do this from  my ipad.

ok, doing this one from the imgur app on my iPad.

Seems to work.

I wonder if I switch over to imgur if they will try to hold my pics hostage like Photobucket sometime in the future.

Don't have imgur so don't know what it is about. Do they have ads or pop ups like PB? If everyone switches to them it would be a matter of time before they hold them hostages and make demands.

I've uploaded 1 pic to imgur. I'm just exploring it a little bit. Seems to be about like photobucket, but with less adds. Of course the interface is different and you have to figure that out.

I'm very concerned that they might hold my photos hostage some day, but I'm pretty sure that I will run out of space on thecj2apage sometime. I don't have nearly what jpet has but I'm building up a pretty good bunch of photos. Right now my Photobucket links still work, I paid for the add free version, but according to their publicity, sometime next year my links will stop working.  Honestly, I can't figure out how any of these companies make money with free stuff, and I don't mind giving a bit, but 400 a year is crazy. 
I think Google will someday house all the world's information and then will put it up for ransom in the same way. Our school district just jumped into Google in a big way because all their educational stuff is free but I haven't figured out their business model. Seems like a thinly veiled "cunning plan" to take over the world.

Most of my saved photos went away when my last computer died. I have some of them saved on a disk, where ever it's gone to. What sort of irks me is that PB keeps sending me email wanting to sell me things.
Don't think so.

I haven't tried Imgur for videos. I'm pretty into YouTube for videos.

If you click on the little tree icon then pate the URL from your imgur photo it will put it directly into your post. I did it with yours here.

Thanks. I can put photos directly from my computer to this forum (with some effort trying to remember the path to my photos). Video is different. Didn't think the forum could take them and thought it would be worthwhile to find a linkable site I could post on. You may be right, I probably need to figure out youtube.

I hope I'm reading their Terms Of Service incorrectly:
 

Stuff not to do

.... Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do – and we will be the judge – or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it.

The last, "anything that turns us into your content delivery network" sounds like what I was looking for. Some place to post my videos to deliver to someplace else (here for example). Geez, I'm about to give up. I'm either too old or to stupid to manage in this age.
