One way to avoid having to run the gauntlet of Photobucket, surely the biggest pile of photo-hosting poo since the dawn of the mouse button, is to drink drain cleaner.
A less painful way is to use postimg.org.
I noticed @kwakster using this (thank you Robert) and checked it out. It is unbelievably simple to use. You don't even need to create an account. And it's free, as in beer. (There's a paid version but the free one is all most people will need).
It's SO EASY to use that we don't even need to post instructions (but will if there is demand, as long as you can work out how to use your computer to contact us).
Please, if you use Photobucket, and want an alternative that doesn't make your eyes bleed, give it a try.
No affiliation, etc.
These are both uploaded, and then the "code" for each copied with a single click to the clipboard, and pasted straight in to this post. The top one links to a bigger version of the image. The bottom one just links to the host site.
The text link "host immagini" above can obviously be edited out of your post if you don't like it... it's what is there by default, and presumably disappears in the paid version.
