PostSubject: Image Hosting and Editing *Photobucket Issue*   Sat Jul 15, 2017 10:05 am

This thread is to share links to image hosting sites or photo editing programs.
Photobucket left it's users stunned when after years of being a free site large fees are being required to continue to share images.
First a word about hotlinking images.
Quote :
Hotlinking is a term used on the Internet that means displaying an image on a website by linking to another website to obtain the source data of the picture each time it is needed, rather than saving a copy of it on the website on which the image will be shown.
Source: https://simple.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotlinking
Hotlinking a URL
Quote :
Create a hyperlink to a location on the web 1 Select the text or picture that you want to display as a hyperlink. 2 On the Insert tab, click Hyperlink. You can also right-click the text or picture and click Hyperlink on the shortcut menu. 3 In the Insert Hyperlink box, type or paste your link in the Address box.

Hosting an image from your computer to a website:
Our forum host site at Forumotion offers free image hosting
https://servimg.com/
Please review the Terms of Service
https://servimg.com/terms_service.php
-
Just choose Host an Image from the toolbar.
The resulting code contains your image plus a link back to Servimg.com
Code:
[url=https://servimg.com/view/15533504/8670][img]https://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/15/53/35/04/manny_11.jpg[/img][/url]
I remove the URL bits
Code:
[url=https://servimg.com/view/15533504/8670] [/url]
That leaves only the image information:
Code:
[img]https://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/15/53/35/04/manny_11.jpg[/img]
And viola! you can use this code anywhere to share your image.

I was certain I had more links but lost or deleted a lot of bookmarks I no longer used.
Please feel free to share any links to either photo hosting or editing sites.

This is good info. Cool
I started using tinypic. I am still nervous about it because it is owned by Photo Bucket.

I have been using Photoscape For a couple of years. I once had a photoshop program but lost it.

I did not remember TinyPic was part of photobucket until I was looking for links. I used Tinypic for a few things but use our Servimg pretty much exclusively.
Photoshop was good but I found it way too complex for the simple things I needed.
I also have a good old Microsoft Paint program that I used a lot.

I know Adobe has an older version of Photoshop to download for free. You could google it and download directly from Adobe, I think.

Thank you EQ!
Does a program ( PDF) need to be downloaded to use that site, servimg? I have PDF already. Tried to sign in but had trouble. How does one sign up there?

No downloads necessary.
@MerryWiddow posted a tutorial on how to use ServImg

I have been using ServImg for a very long time.
Since I use it here I used the same email to sign up.
Once that is done you should be able to just use it as long as you are signed in here.

Forumotion has posted information on a Solution to Photobucket Update.
Photobucket pictures were automatically disabled on all their forums by default. As you know that meant Photobucket images were automatically replaced.

I have updated this forum settings to allow Photobucket images.

Photobucket and Tinypic have dealt a disastrous blow to their users.
So sad and maddening rant

Your siggys are always fun. Love this kitty.

I use Imgur now instead of Photobucket or TinyPics. It is free, it works every time and it is fast thumbs up
