Hopefully, like photobucket, it won't last, then :mrgreen:

this is an inherent risk with ANY kind of image-hosting service that begins as free. I'm on several forums and it's so annoying when you find a 4-year-old topic that could be extremely helpful, only to find all the images are gone because of this. Although it requires a much bigger demand on a particular forum's server, I've only ever uploaded my own images directly to that forum, never used an image-hosting service unless it's the only option.
YES. YES. YES.

I'm the same way. I will only ever post a photo if it can be hosted by the forum I'm posting it to. I'm sorry... but allowing people to post links to 3rd party hosting services did so much more damage to this forum than the links to ebay items that eventually go bad (I was told this was the reason for the creation of separate Buy/Sell/Trade/Wanted forums).

There is one restriction with posting images to this site that some users may find make the feature unusable. If I didn't have Photoshop's "Save for Web" feature, getting my images down to 250k might be a real pita. If you have Photoshop - check out that feature - it makes meeting the size restriction a breeze.

Has anyone found a good substitute for photobucket yet?
Yeah... it's called "Attach".

Perry, not sure where you're getting that BST story from but it's funny... Having been around for almost 10yrs now I can't remember seeing anything but a BST thread since the beginning.

For the "attach" bit - what you're missing is that for some of us who have LOTS of stuff shared over the year, we need some kind of a folder-like structure to help us handle our images centrally. Plus, we also want to be able to display the same pictures in different places over the internet.

Net, local hosting works and we're lucky to have it - but it doesn't cater to all the needs. If you're a photoshop user you probably understand this :)

250k was before the new software, Bill bumped it to 3-4mb a few months ago. People shouldn't have to do too much resizing

Exactly. For new posts I'm uploading to the forum, here and on the other sites I frequently use (one for FJ Cruisers and my forum for vintage VW's), but on my VW site I have nearly 10 years of build photos and event photos... there's no way in hell I'm resizing all those and uploading them one at a time to a board. Takes way too much time. But if I can easily host them somewhere and get the IMG tags for groups of pics I can probably fix a lot of those posts and threads that are all screwed up now.

on your PC....right below where you type, there is a tab for Options and a tab for Attachments. Click Attachments. Click add files. Scour your drive for where they are located and add the ones you want, and click "place inline" to add it to your post. You can move it around wherever you wish. Use the preview button to check your work.

on a device...same attachments tab, same add files...pick the location, select as many pics as you want, and click done. There is a progress bar that will show green when loaded. Click preview to see the pics. You can use the place inline button to move them around in your post, unless your OK with them all being at the end.

OK, thanks. I'm with ya so far but when I do it on my iphone, it says the files too big. Is there a way to resize already existing pics between phone and forum? Please excuse the dumb questions. Technology and I are not friends... :lol:

I had to download an app to resize on my phone (Android), the one I got is called Photo and Picture Resizer, its very easy to use, and was free. Look for that or one like it where ever you get apps for an iPhone.

:shock: I've always just attached photos. Tried and true for me. I use MS Office Picture Manager to do photo resizing in groups. Just takes a minute or two to do as many photos as I want. But if the image size is 3-4 mb now, wooooo! My iPhone 4 photos shouldn't require any resizing now!
