Works just fine, nice shot of Tempest there in store!

(is that the picture people were complaining about your hand in?  For goodness sakes looks perfectly normal!  *shakes head*) 

Yes, as I said, random internet trolls looking for nasty things to say.

But I'm glad the pic shows up.  I'll just use this method then.

Imgur works just fine its just really important to make the photos and the albums private.  I think you got some people saying that to you already. I have never had any comments on my photos on imgur.  I also don't do the smart phone mass load up either.  It freaked me out when I tried to use that to get the settings right. So, I won't be doing that again. I don't have any problems with the site as a whole.

(for what it's worth - I'm on another fandom forum site that seems to have storage for it's members at no cost.  they let you upload pics on forum posts just like this one. it's an "attachment" option. i don't know how they mitigate the cost of hosting, but ya it's so easy for the members.  i post way more there.)

We used to offer that, but it's a big part of what killed our last forum platform - the servers could not handle the load of 10,000+ members uploading photos (quite often very large unedited photos).

I used to prefer Tinypic but that doesn't work anymore (or well, not consistent). I changed to Flickr. I wish I did that years ago!

You don't really need to upload the pictures to your account, you can copy the URL in the stage before that and delete all afterwards.

I use Flickr and I've never received comments or ratings.  I'm not sure if that's because there's no capability for them or because no one ever found my pictures, lol.

Don't ever use Tinypic. They recycle URLs so your completely innocent pony pictures could be replaced by NSFW horrors... it happened to some images I had on Neopets a while back :/

Seconding what Taxel said. Plus, a friend of mine used to use Tinypic and they randomly deleted some of her pics (didn't replace them with anything inappropriate thank god, just deleted them outright). :/

I know, sometimes the picture changes in a car, motorcycle or something like that :). Didn't happen too much therefore never bothered to look at something else. Until now.

I moved my stuff over to Flickr. I like how easy the site is to use. :)

Interesting about the FB private album. I will try that next time I need to post something :)

You can also upload your pictures to Tumblr and then share them.  Just have a Tumblr account, upload the photo in a post, and right-click on it to get the URL. :)
