Help Large Linked Images no longer displaying

I think some images in my old posts are no longer being displayed.
I'm guessing it has to do with secure login, and the off-site linked nature of the hosted images.

I seem to be unable to put them here on Stratics in my media folder, as the images are too large (~30MB or more).

Any suggestions, as i look forward, to link large images?

Can you link me to a post with one of these images?

So, it appears my issue is related to photobucket.

As i understand it - Photobucket made a policy change to no longer allow 3rd party linking of images
(without paying a hefty increase in the monthly fee).

Confusingly i had received an email from photobucket saying i was grandfathered in
(and linking would continue to work until the end of next year).

Whatever the cause - It doesn't work like it used to, and I guess it wont matter why, as regardless -
it wont work they way I've become accustom to for much longer.

So, as one avenue of exploration for a possible replacement -
I see Stratics pro offers "Unlimited media upload storage space".

If i were to claim pro status, could i serve a LARGE image?
Like 24000x24000 pixels at 30MB large for some images?

Can anyone recommend another photo sharing site or option that would allow such large image hosting?
(and 3rd party linking, of course)

I'm willing to pay for a service, just not too costly.
(ala photobuckets change to an unreasonable, to me, ~ $400/year)

Not really, but you could create a private group under the "Guilds" system here and use that to test.

I created a test thread for people to test stuff in the Welcomes and Introductions section awhile ago, but there is no official forum for it.
