This is an image from imgbox. You need to scale it before uploading to get the right size here. Also the sharing tools don't work that well with our image code so just right click and copy image location and paste it in the box at SNF.
There were rumors out on the Web that imgbox was going down as of June 30, 2017. Did not happen but I wouldn't be too confident that they have long term viability. The best idea (for me at least) is to host my blog photos on my own site.

Your image isn't showing Ray. Is the site down already?

Perhaps this is the problem as I went to the site, I get this

Scot's is one of only 2 sites that still need images hosted elsewhere and hotlinked so I do very little hotlinking any more.

The other sites I go to allow me to upload my images in my posts so storing them on my 2 computers works well.

Strange. The pic shows up for me on 2 different computers. I'll try another browser.

Thought it might be a problem that I was using Windows to link but I can see it fine in Linux as well. Don't know why you can't see it Liz.

I signed up for Imgur but I don't really trust them either. They are ad supported and do a lot of data mining. No way to pay to turn the ads off so you have to use an adblocker.
I'm going to move my critical photos over to my own site. It might be slower but there are no bandwidth and storage capacity limits.
Photobucket hasn't got a way to make money from all the folks who embed photos elsewhere so they have tried extortion. At least they'll get rid of their problem that way.

This is a photo off my own site.

An a very pretty picture it is too. :breakfast:

Well I have downloaded my 1.4 GB of images from Photobucket and I have copied them to my two fast desktops so I can work on my blog. Only 300 odd posts to reconfigure.
All my embeds were not broken, and I have nearly 18 months to migrate everything so it's doable - but annoying.
I have learned a valuable lesson - never trust a cloud storage provider for anything - even if you pay.

I can see it on the netbook I'm currently on but I didn't make the security change that I made on my desktop.

I'll need to find the article that said to disallow earlier versions of tls because they are not secure.

I wrote down the setting I changed
about:config
security.tls.version.min replace 1 with 3.

Imgur has been pretty seamless for me. Reliable. Urmas put me onto them a
few years ago, I have not regretted the move at all.

Photo-outaluckett is causing folks a lot of pain and inconvenience. They will be out
of business soon enough. The exodus has begun...
