Image hosting...tinypic is gone...now what?

Post by brokencase » Fri Sep 13, 2019 9:05 pm

I started posting images in my post using tinypic.com

Tinypic.com is now belly up.

As paid members can we post out pictures directly to this website? How..?

Yes, you can. When you create a new post, look below the text entry block at the Options and Attachments tabs. Select the Attachments tab and use the Add files button. I don't recall how to get them to show up inline, but I do seem to remember that there was a maximum size limit above which they would only appear as an attachment that had to be clicked on to view. Sorry for the short answer, but I'm pushed for time right now.

I post car show photos directly all the time. Doubleheader today, so expect pics!
There will be a "post inline" button next to your upload.

If I needed a host, I'd use Imgur.

I've been a happy imgur user for a few years now although over the past year or so they've been making changes to try to capitalize on the social media trend of developing a community.

The best part about Imgur is that it's free and in the 7 or so years of using them I've never had a link go dead that wasn't my fault.

To borrow from Ed though, YMMV.

This is good info, unfortunately, nothing seems to have changed when I became a paid member.
I assume that paid members are allowed to post photos, but I'm not seeing the Attachments tab...
Not complaining to you, I just saw this post and caught my attention because I wondered what I was doing wrong.

Would you PM or email Bob Weir, the club membership coordinator? He'll get some info from you and then we can set up your forum account correctly.

Thanks

You should be able to post pics, I do it all the time (obviously).
Bob will hook you up. :thumb

I started using postimages.org when photobucket started charging. You don't even need to sign up for an account or anything. No affiliation.
