Title: Uploading Your Pictures to This Forum
Post by: BeatsMe on May 20, 2017, 11:02:21 AM
Ok... unfortunately this forum doesn't have the revenue that Facebook has, and as a result uploading your pictures to this forum is VERY, VERY limited!!!

So... if you wish to include pictures in your posts, it is recommended that you use an image hosting site and then use the [img][ /img] BBCode to link them into your post.

If anyone knows of any good image hosting sites that they use and recommend, please don't hesitate to post a link in this topic.... it might be useful to someone.

Regards,
Franco.

Hey Guys....

With Photobucket now a paid service, I see most of the pictures that were for a long time linked in topics on this forum are now dead images.

Another two free image hosting sites....

http://www.imagehosting.com/ (http://www.imagehosting.com/)

https://postimages.org/ (https://postimages.org/)


If you know of any others, post them up in this topic   ;)

Did a quick search of the net.... you need to change the ".org" part of your link to ".cc"

Did it to the picture i posted a few posts back and it worked  :good:

If I see any in my travels around the forum i'll make sure to change them.
Not much else that can be done about it.

just done the rr5 pics, was easy this time, I just pressed the modify button, found the pic number, went into postimage found the same number and copied, pasted and saved, bit more time needed for pics in my other threads as there's more of them.

Allowed attachments has been increased,
although it's still better to use an external image host website.
