As far as I am aware the cap was removed years ago. I'm only pro because I get a discount on it, and I like the pc auto uploader (Lazy...)

I stopped using photobucket a while ago there is the odd time I use it on some forums who's settings are crap and won't let you upload a decent sized photo or the photo comes out huge!

I would rather see images uploaded to the forum on here so images don't go missing hence why I changed all the settings a while back to allow larger files and auto resizing there is plenty of disk space on here feel free to use it :lol:

And the problem with that is you are posting the full size image :wink:

so if your image is 10mb thats what the site has to load each time a member looks at that image!

Not good for mobile users or people on a slow connection :)

Oh , sorry , I had no idea . When I select embed codes I always choose the option that says its for message boards and forums so naturally I didn't realise this would be a problem. When you say not good for mobile users I am a little puzzled because I am a mobile user . I believe that I first heard about IMGUR on this forum so forgive me if I acted inappropriately. So these photos or screen shots from my Nokia Lumia 640 are 10 megabytes then , that sounds a lot . So what do I do now ?

Imgur FTW
Is this a statement in praise or condemnation of IMGUR ? I think I know what FTW means but acronyms occasionally change their meaning over time.

It's only a problem if they are large images I haven't looked at any of yours to be honest to see what size they are! Yours could well be nice and small file sizes

When I say problem for mobile users I mean that if they have limited data allowance with their contract then a larger file size will eat up their data

Don't be sorry just be aware that if it's a large image size then it could cause issues for some users :thumb:

I must say though I don't know why people use third party hosting when it's so much easier to upload straight to the forum :?

If there is issues uploading to here then let me know and I will try and fix them :)

Depending on the photo I'll share from Flickr if I want to keep control of the photo. If I remove it from Flickr, it removes it from most forums I've posted it on. It's just an easy way to keep track of photos. :)

The frustration for me is less the need to find an alternative for picture hosting from here-on, and more that all those useful picture-guides that people have generously put up on forums are ruined by the disappearance of the hosted pictures.

However:

Add this https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefo ... src=searchto your Firefox installation and at least for the time being, the pictures are back.

3. RMB-click 'copy link' for img pastes
