The long term solution will probably be to pay actual money. At this point I can kind of see the point photobucket has - a very little - they gave some people a little free space for their “personal” use, and then they went and put the links on social media sites like this one where they can get 100s or 1000s of hits per day...or hour. So they finally went for limiting the bandwidth of free accounts. Long term no matter what method you use it is likely all externally hosted pics will simply be gone from speypages and similar sites in a few years.
The real solution is to probably to post using the built-in photo posting functions on this site. Since nowadays most operating systems will allow you to “copy image” directly from the screen, if it is a prizewinning professional photo I’m not sure 3rd part hosting will protect the photos much either, if that is a concern.
