« on: August 29, 2018, 01:20:48 AM »
Apparently photobucket has eaten my Avatar and my other photos.
So, what now? What do you recommend I use now, sincs I have been out of Ponyville so long...

I have a pony prototype I want to share and now I can't.

I use a sideblog on Tumblr or direct image links in Discord, but many others use Flickr, Imgur, Dropbox, Imgbb.
Tinypic tends to reuse image urls so I'd avoid that one completely. Facebook image links also tend to be temporary.

I always use imgur, it's really straight-forward for uploading pictures, no account needed if you don't want to create albums to gather and describe a group of pictures.

Personally I use Flickr. You have an account already if you have a Yahoo account, so it's pretty convenient. It's a little hard to navigate at first but the photo editor is very nice, and it gets easier over time :)

I can't wait to see your prototype!

I like imgur. They've changed their setup a little, but once you learn the change it's still pretty easy.

1. Go to their website
2. Post the image you want to share.
3. Right click the image and select "open in new tab"
4. Copy the url.
5. When putting it here on the arena, put it between [ img ] [ /img ] tags (without the spaces).

I don't think you can crop or resize on imgur like you could on pb, though, so make sure your stuff is no more than 600 pixels wide so it will work properly.

I hope this helps. :)

I use imgur as well now that photobucket went over to the dark side. I like it, but can't access the bbc links to post the pics on forums from my phone. I have to get on my computer for that, which is really annoying. It's possible I'm just missing how to do that, though.
