The site I used to use to post photos in this forum is not working out for me ... what are y’all using nowadays to post to this forum? Have some coronovirus lock down painting pics - nothing sterling - thought I’d share. Thanks!!

Thanks Ref, that is what I was using... But I haven’t used it in a while and when I went back in I cannot seem to figure out how to get the link from my photos that allows me to embed it in the post. I hate to be a pain but could you walk me through it in broad strokes? I’m over 50 so I’m allowed to be computer clumsy! Haha!!

I use image shack. It isn't free but $18/yr for unlimited hosting isn't a bad deal. I can take pictures with my phone, upload them to either the app or mobile site and then copy and paste to the forum.

Hey Burt, once you open the picture in imgur you can adjust the size by selecting in the lower right corner and then you just copy the url from the box that says BBCode (message boards and forums). The trick is you have to uncheck the box on the GHQ tread that says “Disable BBCode in this Post”. Otherwise it will post the url and not the picture.

Gents - thank you! I was having problems on my ipad with imgur but on my Dell laptop it works like a charm. So I apologize for taking up your time and crying Wolf! Thanks again!

It took Photobucket about two years to convince me that they didn't want me using their service. But they finally succeeded.

I then looked at a number of hosting sites. I looked at Imgur, but decided not to go that way. As I recall I didn't much care for their account initiation process.

I am now using imgbb. So far, so good. Decent interface, easy to upload and organize, free account, no problems.
