    image hosting rant

    Please use something like imgur if you upload pictures. TinyPic and ImageShack all remove the images or put their logo up after however long and no one can see the pics. I have also seen some forum attachments that are missing. Meanwhile I have had pictures on imgur for years and the links still work.

    All your hard work in taking the pictures is lost if you use a low quality host.

    I just upload my Mirage-related pics to mirageforum.com. As long as someone is backing up this site, my pics are safe...I think.

    Yeah, I just upload them to this forum. I don't have a need to use an image hosting site.

    My feeling about using a image hosting site vs the forum is that it saves bandwidth for the forum and thus costs less money if hosted elsewhere. Plus sometimes they cap file size.

    Yeah, I used to worry about plugging up this forum with junk but I uploaded tons of pics and haven't heard about it yet.

    The forum upload is there to use as much as you'd like. We would much rather you upload them here so they never disappear. Its a common issue with forums. Nothing worse than looking up your favorite DIY thread to find no pics!

    Well seeing as Flickr has a 1000 photo limit I just might have to edit old posts to host them here then.

    I have 1,130 images in 53 albums here on the forum. I've reached limits adding to an album but I just start a new album and keep adding more dopey pictures. See them for yourself.

    What's an album?

    I just upload pics here like a madman and don't pay attention. Are all my pics in a single album?

    When logged into the Forum, there will be a menu at the very top of any forum page. There, click on 'My Profile' where various things will be listed in the left-hand column - Albums among them.

    Uploading pictures and attaching them to a post is simple but has some limitations:
    1. The picture is associated with that single post, and
    2. The picture does not always reliably appear for all viewers within that post, however it is formatted.
    3. Once attached to a post, it can be difficult to find and I'm not sure if it can be re-used in another post.

    I typically upload pictures to an Album under my Forum Profile. Once the picture is uploaded to the forum and saved in an album, I use the BB Code to insert it within a post. It winds up showing up reliably for viewing and I can use the picture in as many posts as I want.
