Dropbox has ruined all my embedded links. any alternatives?

Dropbox changed how their file sharing works and now all of my embedded images in my posts have broken. Does anyone have an alternative suggestion? I tried OneDrive, but it's complicated and takes way too long to create the embedded URL and results in way too long of a path.

Have you tried contacting Dropbox? They may have a solution. Seems weird they would make a significant change like that and not make sure everyone's links would still work.

Oh, they knew about it and warned users, but they didn't say that embedded file links to their folders would no longer work anymore. It just sounded like the paths would change. Unfortunately, they are not going to be able to help me, I'm sure.

Interesting since I use it for my photography business. Haven't heard a single thing and no links to my clients have been changed.

If you're just posting images to forums and unimportant stuff like that, I recommend Imgur. It's simple to use and free.
