I've already posted on the used instruments forum, but I'd like to post some photographs. How do I do that?
Thanks

I don't know all the ways, but the way I use is to sign up with an online photo hosting site, in my case Photobucket.

It's free, but the free version has annoying adverts. After a few years of that I paid for the advert-free version which I like much better.

Once your photo is uploaded to Photobucket you click on the photo, then click on the link on the right side of the page. In your post here you click "ctrl" then "v" and the photo magically appears!

Using Photobucket for image hosting is a very, very bad idea right now.

Why is it a bad idea? I've used it for years, but not too recently...

Aaaargh. Indeed. Looks like all my old photos posted here via Photobucket area gone. Not the first time my chosen image host has gone and my shared images with it, but soooo frustrating for the effects on the archive! I can't begin to do anything about it. What a ballsache!

They suddenly started 'limiting ' hot linking of photos to third party sites , in my case anyway, unless I upgrade to a paid account. When I deleted most of the pics stored and tried to delete the account and gave the reason for it, they stopped blocking the few remaining photos. I then decided to give it another go and reinstated the account, only to find hot linking of newly uploaded shots is still blocked. We'll how it goes but I think that's the end of my use of photobucket. Annoying but it was a free service after all.

postimage.org is what I have changed to, seems handy enough for the use I want from it (temporary/short-ish term linking a few pics into discussions on these forums)

The PB policy change has decimated most forums and blogs. In the forum I run, something like 50% of thread images are affected.

If you use a Chrome browser, right click on one of those PB ransom images and select “search Google for image” the results list comes up noting “About 25,270,000,000 results (1.29 seconds)”. That's a lot of webpages with missing images. Blogs, personal sites, forums, review sites, food & recipe sites; you name it and it's there. Years of effort for many.

The PB500 account now required for hotlinking costs $399 US a year, which is exorbitant. Changes in TOS were sprung in late June with ZERO notice. People are livid. Anyone who uses PhotoBucket ought to consider moving their stored images elsewhere before the company goes out of business. They have just committed suicide. If you choose to remain, I think you have a good chance of ultimately losing your images.

Forum managers here ought to be encouraging people to move their images elsewhere and relinking. Most will not have the patience for that, especially those with long histories, so much of value is lost.

It IS annoying. I don't want too much of a web presence and usually only keep images up for a short period but I left series of shots from previous Willie Clancy weeks available, some 800 pics, as well as shots put up for in memoriam threads. I have deleted all of those now. And they won't be coming back. Still, it was the free option so from that point of view I suppose it's hard to complain. Some images posted to one of the sticky threads on the whistle forum remain available somehow, or are available again as they were blocked for a week.

So far I like postimage.org, you can set a time limit to the availability of images, which saves the work a periodic clean-up.

Since this topic has drifted widely from the original post — and because it has forum-wide significance (and many folks might miss it buried in this thread), perhaps one of the Moderators could post a notice on all the forums of this issue. :love:

Thanks and best wishes.

Yes, the moderators might want to take notice.

Soundfile available! not the best quality of reproduction or playing, I'm afraid.
