This has been resolved, thank you!

__________
So I'm not sure if this is just my computer or something but I'm trying to link to an image for my avatar and it keeps telling me the links aren't correct?
I tried uploading the same image from my computer to both Photobucket and Imgur (which I've never used before but I just thought maybe PB is causing the issue).

Screenshots in Spoiler:
Spoiler! :
This is the Share Image option on Imgur. I tried all the links to make sure none of them worked. All of them turned out the response I underlined in yellow:
Image

"The URL you specified is invalid"
__

This is the same image, but hosted through Photobucket. As you can see, it has a different error.
Image

"Image file type mismatch: expected extension jpg but extension png given"
I saving the image as a jpg and uploading that to Photobucket, but it just popped out the first error again.


I never had this issue before, but then again, it's been awhile since I've tried uploading an avatar. If anyone has any idea why this is happening, or any suggestions for a site that works better for image uploading and sharing, I would really appreciate it!
Thanks in advance!

Someone else might be able to explain a bit more, but I know photobucket is doing this thing now where they want people to pay money for 3rd party sharing (sending links of a photo to one another) I guess photobucket they only want for self use now.

That. Is. Lame.
I've had PB for ages and used it for everything, it sucks that they want to take the free image sharing away :/

In that case, are there any recommendations for new image sharing websites? I have no idea where to even start on that front

Everyone uses imgur now honestly- make an account and it's similar you can have albums etc less laggy too. Not sure if it'll let you save your images off PB though I haven't tried it.

I made an imgur assuming it was PB messing up and it still won't let me upload an avatar. No clue why. I tried every single link. I posted a screenshot under the spoiler. Am I doing something wrong? Like, are those not the right sharing links?

You know what that was exactly the issue. I wasn't on the right page for the Direct Link. Thank you both so much for the help!! I feel so silly now.

alright, with imgur you have to upload your photo and right click it and click the copy url.
if it the url has a blob: in front of it re-copy the IMAGE url until you have a link like this: http://i.imgur.com/foUSWLY.png
if the problem persists screenshot the problem! PB is requiring users to pay to share photos,


edit(aka me fixing myself before i even post);;;; DO NOT SHARE IT TO PHOTOSHOP, you have the option of copying the image url directly from imgur. do that, photoshop is not what you want to use right now


edit against after the post;;;;;; lmaooo glad you fixed the problem!!

you can currently save images from PB to your computer. I guess I should get on moving those images because I'd hate to lose them D:
