Not entirely satisfied with photo hosting
« on: September 03, 2017, 12:30:58 AM »
So I've been using imgur since the whole photobucket fiasco for the sole purpose of hosting pics for posting here.  But I was on it just now (uploading a pic of a new Tempest Shadow plush find at TRU)and I just don't like all the up/down voting and unsolicited comments.  I'm uploading pics for you guys and not a bunch of random internet trolls.

How are the other photo hosting sites in this regard?


*edit*

And, yup, just got a comment about my "fat wrist melded with my bracelet." (Because you could see my hand holding the plush.) So I deleted my photos and the account.  This is not what I want from a photo hosting site.  *sigh*

I use Facebook. (i don't actually use it for personal life anyway but need it for our business) i have created a private locked album which only i can see. Then to put the pictures on here you right click the photo pick copy img url.
Then on here you click on the picture icon (its next to the world with a sheet of paper in front of it) then you paste the img url between the Img text that comes up and you are done.

So other people can see the picture (on here) even though it's marked private on Facebook?  I might give that a try then.

You can make images private.

Assuming you're using the app (since private is default on PC):

-select your photo
-under the place where you put the title, it says "public", click that
-select "only me"

Then upload! Private images and albums also do not require a title.

I have all my stuff set to private that way all I'm doing is uploading and not worrying about the other garbage. I think PG had the comment and vote system too but I was hardly on there since I was going downhill long before then.

I was going to use my DA Sta.sh for image upload but bleh that is a hassle.

didn't know the desktop version was auto private with images, I just make the albums secret just in case XD The app version yeah I saw that public/only me thing lol

Yeah, the problem is that you're submitting your images to the community on Imgur. They make it kind of seem like you have to now but you don't :)

Have you tried Flickr? I use Flickr for my photos, since its easier to organize, and Imgur for stuff like art, avatars, signatures, etc.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.  I've already deleted my imgur account so I'll try the locked Facebook folder.

i was using dropbox until recently (early this year?) they changed their policy public links and how urls are generated.   now the only way to get it to work is by hacking the generated URL.  (I posted a thread here somewhere on it). 

so now since it's so much hassle I just don't post pics here unless people ask or unless it's something monumental.
:/

(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.)

The one problem with this method is I can't save the address from the Facebook app.  I have to come over here and use the pc.

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*)

I didn't like the random people rating and commenting on things either so I set everything in my albums to private. Now people can only see my images if I link them and your Tempest plush is cute^^
