The new Droplr update (5.5) eliminates a feature I used a lot: optionally copy either an HTML or phbBB-formated link to an image stored at Droplr. The link can be pasted into a forum (Discourse or phbBB). Droplr has eliminated the feature, and now only offers a direct-download link.
Is there a Droplr replacement that provides those image-hosting links?
EDIT: Ooops – answered my own question. CloudApp does what I need.
I have ‘lite’ lifetime pro versions of both Droplr and CloudApp. For direct paste I also have switched to CloudApp.
A free alternative I previously used was Jing (which Techsmith hides on its site, trying instead to get you to buy SnagIt), although IIRC there was limited bandwidth, so if you posted in a bust forum the image could go missing after x number of views.
I have lifetime subscription for both Droplr and CloudApp as well. Another alternative to consider is Skitch by Evernote, or Evernote app itself.
CoudApp is amazing. You can even use your own domain for sharing image links.
I got a lifetime subscription via CultOfMac’s marketplace/deals
That’s actually CultOfMac getting a commission on a StackSocial deal. Numerous sites, including CultOfMac and Macworld, are essentially resellers who snag a commission on StackSocial’s offerings.
In 2016 I got a lifetime CloudApp ‘Pro Lite’ subscription on StackSocial for $24.99, and also got a lifetime Droplr lite Pro plan for around the same price there too. They’re very close in capabilities, and I use them both.
The Droplr plan (which pops up infrequently on StackSocial and sites it feeds its deals through) offers up to 2Gb file size drops, 50GB/mo bandwidth transfer, unlimited uploads, permanent drops, and custom branding.
The CloudApp subscription is a little confusing - when I bought it I thought it also offered up to 2Gb file size drops, but other documentation says 100Mb max file size. It too offers unlimited drag-and-drops, as well as 30 seconds HD screen recording, and 30 seconds Webcam video recording
