I ended up going with buying the basic subscription at Smugmug.com.

I just re-posted a lot of what were Photobucket photos from the new Smugmug account, so the photos are restored. See page 10 of that thread.

I only see two pages in this thread, but I must be doing something wrong.  It's no worry, I will find all the threads about trailer hitches with the search tool.

The fact that they didn't see the backlash coming shows that there are blind to their user base.  I don't see them lasting much longer...

It doesn't seem like the backlash has been bad for them. They've managed to double revenue, at least for the short term, and cut down their bandwidth and cost too
I would imagine. The note in the article about Imgur's terms of service was interesting. There is a good amount of talk on the web about using them as an alternative.

Google photos?

Google Photos allows free unlimited photos and videos up to 16MP and 1080p HD.  Tons of ways to access and share.  No ads or shenanigans either.  Or at least not yet.......
