I don't have the brains or the patience to go thru all these image sites and figure this out. Can someone just tell me the easiest one to use for putting pics on this site so that I can sell the stuff I need to get rid of??

Flickr is probably easiest overall. Just don't advertise anything for sale on that site.

Is there a way to use Facebook to post images here?  I'm pretty sure I read that on this thread but I can't find it now and I've been through the whole 15 pages!  I really hate to signing up to new sites that I rarely use and I already have a FB account.  Yeah, you have to not use Internet Explorer as your browser because it won't give you an image link to copy.  Thanks, Skeen!

Just a note on imgur, I tried to use it to host my auction images and after a few days, they all started coming up broken. :(

That was always going to be the intent.

Did they delete your images or did the site go down? I've never had them mess with my uploads but the site can get overloaded and go down from time to time.

The images are all still in my folder, but maybe I used too much bandwidth remote hosting? It kinds burns me a bit, because it happened on auctions I'm doing for a friend.  So now I have no way to fix them since they all have bids :(  A couple of examples

yep I keep getting those   :rolleyes:  now they are trying it on another way- instead of asking me to pay "only $399" or something like that they've broken it down to "it only works out at $2 a day " (or words to that effect )., Yeah no  :throw:

Okay I have a Flickr account now, set to public... How on earth do I get the images to show up?  What URL do I use?  I am still so lost...






They just don't work.

Go to the photo, click on the arrow that looks like it's turning over.  COPY the code from the BB section into a Notepad - then take out all the tags that aren't  [ IMG ] tags.  Paste that into your Arena message.  :) 

It took me a couple of tries but I figured it out fast enough.  It just is annoying that one has to go through the extra step of removing the Advertisement for Flickr before you can paste the code.
