Still get some photos on some threads, but not these ones. And I refuse to join yet another unwanted site and register my info, SO THERE! :tease:

A I see it the codes provided by Image Shack are embed link to image. (as in live links)
This is a purposely done by them so that the users will forcefully visit the ImageShack site.
This in turn would mean more registered users and more advertisement views the mor in revenues it bring for them.
 should a member wish to restore back the direct link to there images,
they provided the “Register your domain with ImageShack” link in the homepage.
