I use imagebam, and that works fine. I'm admittedly on dial up, and it seems faster than others for me.

I have not noticed imgbox, I use Imagevenue to post pics.

I do notice Pimpandhost as being very slow and most of the time the pics will not come up on my computer - a brand new pretty fast machine. I wish that the posters who use pimpandhost switch to some other service to post their pics.

From what i can see imgbox & imagebam have upped the ante and now allow a maximum sized pic of 10MB where as imagevenue & p & h are still at 3 & 5 MB.

It has its outages as does every other popular host

Nothing you can do about it

The biggest problem seems to be

- the pic sizes have increased massively since HD came on the scene.
- the use of automatic downloading is quickly replacing manual
- the use of ad-blockers is having a negative effect on their ability to pay for the bandwidth used

Hence we get outages or periods where individual servers are so stressed
if they dont stop requests their likely to overload the servers.

Filehosts are exactly the same except they have more tools to prevent outages like waiting periods,captcha codes & nobbling automatic downloaders frequently to make their business model sustainable.

I wont be surprised if imagehosts end up resorting to similar tactics down the track

Opening images hosted on Imgbox seems a lot slower than the other two main free hosts and it does not have any 180 x 180 thumbnail option.

Imagebox already does not allow the use of bulkdownloader which is a pain as clicking each file is too time consuming as it is so slow.

If you mean imgbox, I use Imagegrabber all the time, sometimes it is painfully slow so I do other things while waiting for it to finish.

I've just noticed this notice which you'll also notice if you click on the gallery button at the bottom of the page so it is not really noticable

...or just read this screengrab
