If you use photobucket to upload your pictures they will not work anymore, the new upgrade to allow what they call third party hosting ( i.e. loading pictures on forums ) will cost $39-99 a month.
Bye Bye photobucket. Mad bounce

Last few reports I've used this one ( free )

https://postimages.org/login?logout=705b90869a2bbc60e6b74c8d8f9f758c494c88c2c31185bbaef778327141f125

I reached my capacity on Photobucket and there seemed to be a range of pay for option prices depending on capacity and features

I've never cracked the direct upload way on my Ipad

I always use the forums own uploading thingy

The icon under the B



Remember when selecting the picture size to select 320 or 640 as any higher comes out enormous Exclamation

Blimey, I've only been and gorn and dun it!


Need to practise adding multiple photos into a report though,

any tips on how this works best using this method for a long report?

Using Photobucket or the other one I'd tried recently I would compose it on word, insert the links and copy and paste it all to post the report when complete, this direct way feels a bit more difficult to edit and interspace words and pics?

I`ve found that as well Paul, so far I`m adding one pic at a time between text, you can add several at once and add the description either before or after them. scratch scratch

Yeah probably take a bit of getting used to, also it seems servimg is owned by forumotion, so not sure how well it works if you were to try and paste the links into a forum operated by someone other than forumotion,

SunnyRhyl is the only forum in my life!

Incidentally I've just added a couple of pics of imitation bread into the mullet thread,

The smaller pic is the 320 size the larger pic is the 640 size


I do hope that Photobucket will continue to maintain the links on old reports even if we decline to pay!

I`m afraid all the pics on previous reports have gone, right back to the early years.

Yep you're right all pictures ( using Photobucket ) all the way back to November 2008 have gone.
Thankfully Fairziffs classic reports seem unaffected.

I clicked on a Photobucket picture link on a draft I'd saved and the picture is still there, ( Folks, if you've any special  pics that you might not have anywhere other than Photobucket you might like to visit your albums and save them to your device -  

I clicked a link for details about the changes too, here is an extract,

"...

3. What users are affected by the changes to our 3rd Party Hosting
policies?

Moving forward, new and legacy free account users will NOT have third party
hosting available.

If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017,
you will continue to have all the privileges you have enjoyed including 3rd
Party Hosting until December 31, 2018 as long as you maintain your
subscription.

Non Plus 500 Account subscribers that purchased after June 1, 2017 will not
have access to 3rd Party Hosting.

4. Are my pictures still safe?

Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket
Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on
3rd party sites.

5. Can I download my Photos?

Absolutely, at any time. It is an easy four step process:

Step 1. Login to your Photobucket Account

Step 2. Navigate to your library page

Step 3. View a photo and click the download button

Step 4. The picture will be saved to your computer...."


If you bother to read through theirofficial statement (there is a link to it on Photobucket) then the crux of the matter is that offering the free service wasn't making them any money especially as the use of ad blockers means their advertising revenue wasn't enough - wonder if other providers relying in advertising income to offer free services will follow suit???

Using the forum picture upload, when you have done the report, click on preview, then if you want to change anything go back to the original and you can then edit it, likewise if you upload all the pictures at once, check preview then go back and insert dialogue then do another preview until happy with it.
this is on my computer, cellphone posts may be different

Just tried hitting the icon on my phone but it doesn't work, it must be a pc option only.
Edit- just figured it out now on my phone, It works!
