Hi All,

Here are 11 of the best sites that offer free image hosting and make the process of uploading and sharing your images easier than ever.

https://www.lifewire.com/free-image-hosting-sites-3486329

At the moment I am using http://postimage.org/

Please do not send a large photo to a post as it uses a lot of Web space and makes the post too large and takes a long time to display when a member looks at the post ,
so please resize it. Ideal size is 640 x 480.

Good luck,
Tony

Tony,
I have just tried your recommended (postimage.org), it is simple to use and works well.
See post in the Parts wanted section to see picture quality at
800 x 600 setting. I will reduce to 640 x 480 for the future.

Thank you.

Dave-M

I have been assisting one of our members to post some pictures of his car onto the forum members cars section.

Just to clarify, when posting pictures you need to use the Img command which is situated below the subject box on the 'post a reply' screen.

When you want to post a picture you need to mouse over and press the Img box, you then need to put the picture address in, once the address is in, mouse over and press the /Img box, this will instruct the forum to post your desired picture.

I have also noticed that a number of pictures which were uploaded from 3rd party sites have gone missing, by far the best way to maintain a pictures presence is to embed it onto our own web site. This can be done by emailing me the picture, I will then upload it onto our web site and send you the address needed to upload. Whilst this method does take a little longer (I endeavour to upload pictures within 24 hours) it embeds the picture onto our web site and it will not disappear.

The new "add image" feature is excellent - it makes posting photos a breeze. Well done Keith.
