Although I do not use them, I was sent this email by someone who does and thought that it should be posted on here for those that do use ImageShack and have a free account.

As of November 1, 2015, all free accounts can no longer deliver images to any sites, blogs or forums. The email is as follows:

ImageShack Content delivery policy changes

Dear ImageShack users:

since 2004 ImageShack’s team has been working
hard to create easiest to use, best performing Image Hosting and
delivery solution for all users. To continue to improve our services
for our premium users, ImageShack will implement policy changes that
are listed in detail below.

Starting November 1st, 2015 ImageShack will be implementing a new
policy that will affect image delivery for some of our users, here are
those changes:

Premium ImageShack accounts will not be affected in any way. You will
continue to be able to use your ImageShack account, and all images
will be served to your pages.

Any free accounts (non-premium) will no longer deliver images to any
sites, blogs or forums. This change will be implemented by November
1st,2015. If you have a free account, have images that are linked to
any sites, blogs or forums and want to continue to have images
delivered to those pages, please convert to premium account
here: https://imageshack.us/upgrade, for only $3.99/mo, you will
continue to have unlimited storage and unlimited delivery of your

ImageShack Team.


Free account holders will still be able to access their ImageShack accounts, and be able to download their images for a period of 3 months. You will be able to upgrade to a premium account at any point during that time to enable image delivery outside pages. If you chose not to upgrade, your account access will be discontinued by the end of January 31st, 2016, and your ImageShack account will be considered abandoned.

You have until November 1st, 2015 to re-host your images to any other service provider, and until January 31st, before your access to ImageShack.com site is discontinued.

Just a heads up to all ImageShack users with free accounts.

wonder how many don't know and will wake up one morning to blank layouts but in saying that any serious business trading in uv shouldn't be using free hosting for textures anyway

Thank you Dusty. I have not received this notice, but maybe its because I have already switched to a premium account about a year ago.
Suggest others do to maintain secure links and convenience to the account owner. Your links switching to a premium account remain unchanged.

"Then out spake brave Horatius,
The Captain of the Gate:
To every man upon this earth,
Death cometh soon or late.
And how can man die better,
Than facing fearful odds,
For the ashes of his fathers,
And the temples of his gods”

Thanks here too, Dusty. I run a Photography Forum that was running slow on the free host for 1 week now. I am dropping it from the free place we use and hosting it on my domain instead. Just as I got all of it copied over including the last 6 months Photographic Competition and photographs I read your message. I double checked to make sure then told the 19 members in the club. I rehosted the last 6 months pictures in PB and adjusted the links from Imageshack to the new PB account, to maintain their posterity for our members. Now I just have to find a new photo host that has an easy upload and auto resize for our members. Phew! What a busy few days. The new Forum is the same look as the old, has all the old posts in, the last 6 months pics are new securely hosted in a new PB Account and the forum is a lot faster and now fully controlled by me with no adverts from the free host either. Thanks again.....
