Uploading Photos?
« on: September 07, 2019, 05:34:13 PM »
Folks ... what are the ways to upload photos to this site?

At one time I used photo bucket, but I hear tell it costs money to store them there.

What else can and are folks doing :icon_question:

I used to use photobucket too, but I have switched to imgur.

Imgur. Photobucket keep asking for money, meanwhile watermarking all the pictures until I pay. Yesterday an email from them threatening to defocus all the pics unless I paid. But even though they have lowered the price they demanded originally, but because of their past bad behaviour I can't trust them not to mess me about royally in future, so I won't pay. Besides, I am now paying instead for my bigsmallworlds website which I set up when Photobucket played silly buggers a year or so ago.
Photobucket has now re-destroyed my pictures, so the first half of my collected works thread is no longer working again. To see my website version of the campaign thread, with fully functioning pictures, please go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/

I like Wordpress. You can blog, media, etc. No cost.

Does imgur and flickr charge for posting :icon_question:

With all the brew-ha around photobucket (my photos still seem to be there without having been charged or sent an email) I don't upload photos there currently.  Although I'm concerned about these other sites deciding they want us to pay as well.

My understanding is that Wordpress is software, correct :icon_question:

I have a website that hasn't been turned on for the rest of the world to see yet.  If I recall it is based off of Wordpress, although I bought it through a different outfit a couple years back.  It started with my "100 Days of Painting" effort, but I didn't keep it up even though I did finish the 100 days in a row of painting.  I'd like to give that a go again, maybe next year, although I digress.

Yes!👆 it comes in an app on the phone. Pretty sure it can be accessed on computer as well as it has an address.

At the moment no, but who knows what the future holds. My suggestion would be imgur. It's probably the most user friendly, and seems to get the most use from folks here.

I use imgur since the photobucket situation.

I also have a website i am building - though paused now since mario maker 2 came out. Was using Wix for that.

Wordpress is both a software to create blogs and a website to host your blogs/website (which could work to host images too).
One is .org and the other .com (i think)

Nevertheless, I do not think thats the way you want to go. I would recommend again imgur free and easy. No need to make an account, but also always keep a copy. I know a lot of people did lose or felt blackmailed when their photos/images were taken by photobucket.

I cant really find a good justification to use photobucket apart from being lazy (which in some cases is good enough). They used to have a tool to download or your images but now I think you can do a few at the time or have to pay.

Other option is create dropbox accounts and with free extras for getting people to join you can get 1T I think. Not much but enough to move stuff around.  If you need a referral link let me know.

I just signed up for Imgur. Is it still free? I didn't see anything about prices.

Imgur is free. I moved there as well, after photobucket kicked my photos out of the bucket.

I use imgur and flickr for one off pics. 
However most of the photos I share around here are from google images via blogger. I share the photo on my google blogger blog first then pull the image source URL by right clicking on it in FireFox and using the "view image source".
Note- you have to use the image source from blogger not google images directly as the direct google image url seems to change from time to time.

That said, Google is evil and I should switch completely to using imgur and flickr.
