Picture posting without an account
« on: April 01, 2015, 08:31:00 am »
Is there anyway to post up pics if you don't have an account on social media? I was wondering why we cant upload a fairly low pixel pic to the forum?

I use photobucket since it doesn't require a social media account. It tries to get you to use a FB login, but you can just use email and a pwd.

Because this is a free site, and because I don't want to pay out of pocket for storage, all pics have to be hosted on other sites and linked to this one.  It's not hard to do, and most other webforums (coughs *ADV*) do it this way.  I use Picasa or Amazon's pic hosting service.  There are many options out there.

I used to try and allow very small pics, but my service plan limits were overwhelmed after a couple months and I had to delete a lot of pics, issue all sorts of apologies, etc.  This way is better in the long run.  You can still upload avatar pics and GPS tracks.
