Photo hosting sites?
« on: July 31, 2017, 01:39:07 PM »
I'm having a hell of a time uploading pics to Tinypic and Photobucket.  Are there any other free sites for Photo hosting that anybody uses?

I haven't used them but I've heard of people using Imgur, Flickr and PostImage

Here's how to post photos straight from Google DRIVE ( not photos ).

I REALLY wish this was less steps, but it works and keeps your images your own. This way, if you ever decide you DON'T want that image public anymore, you can control that from google rather than going to every site you ever posted the image.

1.) Open drive.google.com and upload your photo
2.) Select the photo and click the "Get Shareable Link" Tool
3.) Copy the url, it will look like:
Code: [Select]
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3lRHMrbLMG_c3dPUUxlRVNfTnM5.) Change the "open?" in the url to "uc?"
6.) On CMF, click the Insert Image tool on a post, and paste the url inside the img tags
