Migrating Wallpaper Galleries

ImageReward.com has been down for a few days so I am jumping ship. I have been evaluating new image hosts for the past couple of days and have decided to use ImageShack.com for the Widescreen Wallpaper Gallery and Photobucket.com for the PSP Wallpaper Gallery. I have all the widescreen images uploaded and most of the PSP images uploaded, though I am still going through files to make sure for the PSP gallery. The reason for not using just one or the other host is because neither one fullfils my needs. Photobucket only allows images up to 1024x768 for free accounts (the widescreens are 1920x1080) and ImageShack does not have subfolders so I can't create different galleries. So, for now, the galleries will be on seperate sites. Lord Matt asked why I do not use FlickR.com, the reason is because FlickR is a photo site and in their TOS they state:
Don’t use your account to host web graphics like logos and banners.
Your account will be terminated if we find you using it to host graphic elements of web page designs, icons, smilies, buddy icons, forum avatars, badges, and other non-photographic elements on external web sites.
So, since the wallpapers are non-photographic fractal rendors (mostly) and wallpapers could be determined to be web graphics, I won't use FlickR for this. Anyhow, this post is starting to stretch long so, check out the new galleries. I will do my best to get all the images in the past posts updated to the new links in the next few days.
