I know we've covered this a gazillion times, but I never paid much attention, so let's do it again anyway. :wink:

As you might recall, I've got a harp coming, and once it arrives I'd like to post pics of it here on the Board. Recently turned in my old and finally failing Galaxy S III phone for a shiny new Galaxy J7 V, so on that end I'm good to go. All that remains is a photo-hosting site that will suit me well: free, dependable, and user-friendly for the technically challenged.

Be warned, though: I may also unleash pics of my next cat upon the world. :wink:

I'm using imgbb. It seems to work. It's free. I can work it, even when I'm in stupid mode, so it should suit you fine. :twisted:

For my recent FS post I used OneDrive. If you already have a live/hotmail account, it comes for free, otherwise it's free to create an account. When you open a photo in OneDrive there's a button on the top that says "Embed", and it gives you a URL for embedding. Worked really well. You can even upload from your phone if that's where you take photos. I used the website to upload this time.

I've been using Postimage which has been easy, but, I'm not storing entire photo library anywhere on internet anymore in fear for the same scheme of offering limited free space and then requiring purchase of additional cloud space. I was a former Imageshack and Photobucket user and have moved onward. I'm just going to jump from freebie to freebie cloud. I also need to upgrade my flipper someday for something smarter, but, I'm not an early adopter of anything.

I use cloudinary.com. It works pretty well. The UI isn’t super user friendly in my opinion. However others who have tried it out from here say it gets the job done.

I’ve never tried loading images from my phone into it. I transfer them to my pc and then upload them. Maybe you can upload from mobile—I just haven’t tried.

Yes, phone→PC→host is the route I had in mind.

My mum (82 yr old) asked me about the cloud the other day. I am not sure she understands it though.
"What is the cloud?" : "Someone else's computer"
"Where is it?" : "You don't know"
"Will they let other people look at it?" : "Probably not"
"Can I be certain I can get my stuff back?" : "Probably"
"So why would I want to do that?" : "errr ....."

I don't think she is too far off though. The company I work for might be moving our Manufacturing Software to the Cloud (because Microsoft will no longer allow us to host it ourselves) and I feel like the answers to our questions are about the same as your answers to your mum.

Thanks for the suggestion. It is simple to use. :thumbsup: However I did not see a way there to edit photos?

Thanks. I'd say I'm pretty well-armed, now. :)
