    Not sure how many (if any of you) use ImageShack. I only use it to host photos that I want to post here on Android Forums, but I logged in today to see that the website is newly renovated and more complicated to figure out. The most disappointing thing that I saw is that they are now charging $1 per month to use their website. It is $12 per year to use their service.

    What is the trial subscription?
    The trial subscription is valid for 30 days and does not require any payment information to be entered. You will have full access to the site and all of its features during this time. At the end of the trial if you do not wish to subscribe, account access will still be available, but image uploading will not.
    What happens to my account after the trial or if it expires?
    If you don

    Exactly what i was going to suggest. I use Photobucket for stuff like screenshots (whatever) to keep them separate from my real pictures which are on Flickr. I tried and disliked ImageShack so it's no loss for me.

    Considering all the free sites available I wonder why they are doing this.

    Oh poo, I just posted a guide today using images hosted there.

    Do they stay up after the 30 days or are they taken down?

    I use minus.com, they have been converting to a more social company called meow or something like that but the minus website is supposedly not going to change.

    In order to sign up you need the meow app but once your account is created you should be able to lose it and login at minus.com directly.
