What image hosting do you use for forums?

Like the title states, I would like to know what image hosting sites you guys use for forums such as this one. For some reason Google photos has stopped working for this site. I used to right click the picture and click "copy image address" and then paste that to insert image and all was good. Now, when I do that I get the broken picture symbol. So I figured it was google's way of telling me to use the share button in the upper right and use the Get link feature. However, when I use that method, only I can see the pics and everyone else sees a greyed out pic. I love Google photos bc it auto updates from my phone and would prefer not to change over but give me your opinions. See the last few pages of my build thread for examples.

Imgur, or our own host. For personal stuff (other non-work forums) Imgur.

Imgur.

Formerly used photobucket but that site turned into lag/stutter-fest, ad-ridden, heaven. Also detected some weird potential drive by download malware from those popup ads. Popup and adblockers weren't keeping up (auto and manually updated each browsing session).

Which android app do you guys use for imgur?

I've not had good luck with many of them and actually went back to photobucket because I like their mobile uploading tools better.

Can't help you there since I mostly upload from my desktop computer.

Does their app not work with your mobile device?

I use the official imgur app. You might have to log in to an imgur account, but you can just select imgur in the "Share" menu for each photo, and it'll upload it.

Google seems to be working for my build thread and I'll keep using it for personal pictures but for one off stuff imgur is king, the links always work and the site isn't full of bloat and shit like photobucket and flickr.

I just haven't had luck with uploading directly to my own gallery with the imgur app, which is what I always want to do.

I stopped using photobucket for years but I've gone back to it since the app is more intuitive and does what I want.
