I have been using Picasa Web Albums for sharing family photos and it worked fine as an image source for this posting as well. I'm on Windows 7 so right clinking on a picture did not have "Properties," but instead I chose "Copy Image Location" to place after Img and that worked fine as you can see.

I think what Gary was attempting to do was present a methodology that worked with different browsers. Of course we all know Microsoft.....

The object that he was retrieving is the full web address of the picture. `It is the image location.


Six years is a long time for computers, innit?

I'd like to post some images of my own, but don't want to mix up photos for public sharing here or elsewhere with family photos etc. that are for private sharing only. So I'd like to set up a specific account for "public sharing" so that I don't have to worry about privacy settings.

Is there any service provider that users here would recommend?

I also see that both Photobucket and Imageshack both require a subscription to use their service now. Since there are numerous ways to post photos now from computers, or phones, is there an updated way to do that here using attachments? I understand that they need to charge but I am not a professional photographer and don't really want, or need, a subscription. I would like to sell a practice set and those are the few photos I have that are digital and I needed to borrow a digital camera for that. Otherwise I use film.

Photobucket definitely doesn't need a subscription. I use it regularly, and have never paid a subscription. I used it just this week. I don't know about Imageshack. There are quite a few free image-sharing sites out there - Photobucket remains one of them.

I went on there this morning and it says its policies have changed as of June 28, 2107. No more image linking or third party hosting for free. I can still store there however up to 2G.

I am assuming that includes what I wanted to do here. I was mostly wondering if the site here had made it easier to post to the forum without using that type of site, such as Google sharing or attachments. I go to other forums and it is possible there and I was wondering if things had changed here as well.


I will search for other sites that will fulfill my needs, which are little. I know many people use the sharing sites regularly and for high quality photos. It is a service I don't need but I may have to bite the bullet and subscribe anyway.

Thank you for your help!

Honestly, you really don't need to pay anything, or "subscribe" in any way, to use Photobucket.

Thank you Ben.

I got on, the photos I had there were gone, and then I read the new terms. I thought the worst and started shopping for an alternative!

As I read them, I think they're saying that free accounts are not allowed to link to third party sites to store pictures on Photobucket. They clearly haven't stopped you storing, and sharing, your own photos.
