Question Image Hosting - Imageshack tits-up, Anyone use Google Photos?

So Imageshack took a nosedive and their crap is all messed up. I cannot even login to their service (paid account too) and none of my pictures uploaded are accessible. Has anyone here tried using the Google Photos to upload pictures and share with a IMG link here? If so what is the trick to get the correct link from Google Photos to use here in BB Format?

I use a free Photobucket account. It works, but it's cluttered with ads and won't work right on Firefox and Chrome - so it's a giant pain in the butt. Maybe someone will come along with a better option.

As I told Gary above, not looking do ditch Imagaeshack unless the Google option is doable in the spirit of streamlining. I do not like Photobucket at all and chose Imageshack as a better alternative. If Google isn’t a possibility, I will just wait until service is restored.

Thank you both.
