What photo hosting site would please suggest ?
Looking at Tiny-pic, their parent company is Photo-bucket and the site is full of those annoying pop-up adverts. Imgur has a nasty sounding Terms and Conditions.

I am trying to "re- image" the lost pictures from photobucket in my History of the Empire," but for some reason the hight/width seems to be capped at 500. At first I thought it was something I did wrong with imgur, but I tried it on another website and there it worked.

This picture should actually be 715x976, but is always converted to 366x500:



Any advice?

Add sizing code. But when you do, get the proportions right! Unlike this ...



which is [-img width=750 height=384]http://i.imgur.com/fnmIRO7h.jpg[-/img] without the two '-'s.

To see some of my stuff with the pictures re-included go to http://forum.oldhammer.org.uk/ and to see my slowly growing website/blog which will have a lot of stuff in eventually, see www.bigsmallworlds.com

Using a ruler I make the sides to be proportionately 92 to 127, so

width 1500 x (127 / 92) gets a height of 2070



which is [-img width=1500 height=2070]http://i.imgur.com/fnmIRO7h.jpg[-/img] without the two '-'s.

Which doesn't work.

So tried doubling the now coded sizes to 724 and 1000...



Hmm.

It auto corrects to the preset size now. But didn't the first time. Hmm.

[edit] Doesn't work whatever I do now.
[edit] Works now - as proved by second attempt above. Thanks Mids.

This might have been a fix we implementing trying to combat an older photobucket issue. Will raise with bugman.

I think I have fixed it.
There was a setting of 800w x 500h in the Layout control.
Just disabling it and then modifying your pic to the dimensions you gave has changed your picture Fidelis - does it look ok now?

It will only work now on new posts - previous ones will need editing like Padre has tried and done.

We may have to impose some restriction as pictures could appear huge and members will be moaning they cannot get them to fit posts  :engel:

Thank you, Midaski, now it works. One just needs to remove the added width and height numbers, and then the original picture will appear.
