Default Any free Photobucket alternatives?

(I'll state the usual disclaimer here) If this topic has already been handled before, I apologize…

I use a large amount of scans in my B/S/T listings, but now Photobucket has moved to a 'pay for play' format and all of my scans have been replaced with an 'image not found' type of graphic. It has totally screwed me.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a free alternative I could use that mirrors Photobucket?

To head off all of the contrarians, no, I won't simply pay Photobucket's price, even if it's relatively low. Just don't want to do it.

I signed up for imgur and it's relatively easy to use (could have much better/easier-to-use posting links for webpages like Net54), but when I replaced images here, the scans came across way too huge, basically twice the size of my Photobucket images done the same way. Anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks!

I just take pics on my phone, upload them to my computer, and then download them on here. It's pretty easy.

My full page scans are way too large to upload that way. I use that method for other smaller things.

To be clear, I am looking for a website like Photobucket to use. A hosting site, I guess is the technical term. If anyone has a website recommendation, PLMK.

Strange as it sounds, just use Facebook.

Post images to your page and tag them as only being for you.

Then open the image, copy the URL and viola.

Just a wild guess on my part, but could it be that the Bucket images had been automatically reduced in size when you posted them? And, images you scanned at the same resolution and placed elsewhere were not downsized, but posted at the original resolution, and thus come through much larger, as you say? Forgive me, I don't use web hosting sites, so don't really know what their practices are.
