Hello UltimateLion,

In your case, you are not hotlinking. This is because sites such as ImageShack and Photobucket allow the displaying of the aforementioned pictures. It is only wrong and considered to be hotlinking if you're using pictures from other sites in which you are not hosting. This is because you are using their bandwidth up illegally.

You don't have anything to worry about. I hope this information has helped you! Very Happy

Regards,

Base
