Oh well. Indeed I only discovered today that Photobucket now stamps big watermarks over any image you might've had with them so I spent about an hour or so downloading my entire album one picture at a time just so I can say goodbye to them and re-link the images over time.

It's quite bad, they were a free service and then decide they aren't, so everything gets watermarked and it all goes away if you pay them $400 or whatever. Go away!

Since TinyPic is going away, I decided it was time to learn how to embed an image to a forum post directly from my DropBox account.

Here's how to do it:

1. In the online DropBox page for the image, select the image and create a link for it. (Click Share then Create Link.) Copy the link.
2. In the forum's post editing window, paste the DropBox link
3. Select the link text and then click the picture link icon button.
4. Here's the important part: Change the ?dl=0 bit at the end of the DropBox link to ?raw=1
5. Click Preview or Submit

Now the image should appear in the post.

Hope this info is useful.
