Imgur has changed you used to have a list on the right to copy for forums or email and so on but now you click the drop down and then share options.

Figured it out with imgur.
Don't click on albums under your name click images then pick the one you want and the list of "copy links" appear on the right.

I did nothing to my photobucket account. Looked to use one of the suggested hosting sites below. Just checked 3 of my How To's and the original pictures are back, thing we have a U-turn here. Which is good, saves me a shed load of work!

One suspects that the $400 a year charge didn’t work out too well and their customer base fell so perhaps they relented?

They’ve been nagging me for months to take up a ‘special’ offer - which I haven’t.  I don’t have a free account but I’m not paying even close to what they wanted to charge.
:ant: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.
