I've just discovered this https://imgbb.com/ Works a treat. I'm just trialling the free version to see if I like it at the minute, but 3 years unlimited storage for $107 is a really good price I reckon. Very very simple & basic to use, just what I like. No compression or anything silly going on, it just seems to work. Very quick uploads. Maintains all the exif data.
That's interesting, but what is the auto-delete feature for?

How is their pricing structured? One lump sum or a subscription?

[edit] $107 is an upfront cost. Monthly is $10.[/edit]

It doesn't seem possible to find out anything about them or what they do without creating an account and no doubt finding my way onto a mailing list.

First impressions are important. All I'm seeing is adverts. Their terms are somewhat sketchy.

Call me a skeptic (actually, I have a nasty suspicious mind), but the top review on google says it's not clear who owns it and the first blog review looks fake. https://blog.bloom.io/imgbb/ You would sort of expect a screenshot wouldn't you?

It does however seem that they have been around for four years or more.

I don't understand the value of an auto delete feature either.

Funnily enough, I'm not seeing any adverts. And if you subscribe, the ad's vanish. I created an account, not received any spam from them as yet. So far I'm happy with it. I'll let it run for another month or so, & see how it goes.
