They want me to purchase a 500 Plus plan for $399.00 a year.
That's a crock of S*** !

Now I have to go through all of the work to transfer all of my stuff to maybe Amazon Prime photos.

Anyone have a better idea ?

Yes, do like me

Get your own domain name and link to a hosted account. Godaddy, GatorHost, others. You can use your file manager to upload to FTP hosting account, create folders on it, etc. I know Linux file managers do that, and windows file explorer used to do that, not sure if it still does. Someone said it didnt', but maybe that was IE quit doing FTP uploads?

domain name

In reply to: Photobucket say's

The domain name is available for less than $10 per year. Most other "digger" like .com and .net and .org are taken already.

I usually do, but depends on how much privacy you want.

Since I'm posting them here, I don't have a privacy issue.
To have the image show in this forum add the s to the http link.
