Posting Photos in the Forum


There are times when I would love to post photos to this forum.  I have done it a few times but found it difficult and time consuming.  

Has anyone smarter than me (almost everyone) figured out an easy shortcut to post photos?

Easiest way I have found is to upload your images to an host server and then post a link to the image here.

Yeah ... I think that’s exactly the hassle that Russ is describing.

I could be wrong, been a long time, but IIRC Howard did not want to use up his server space by storing images.  The advanced editor only allows adding a URL to an image.

Can’t fault Howard for that decision.

Though it is the Forum software and not us specifically, Dan is correct that they don't want to use up server space to store images. Therefore, the only way to add photos to the body of a post is to link them in from another place on the web where you may have photos stored .... such as Google Photos, Flickr, Smugmug (the one we use), etc.

These photo galleries or storage services supply you with a link (URL) you can use to insert photos into posts here.

Easy if you store photos in an online gallery, but a pain if you don't. Sorry.

Thanks for the clarification on the forum and photos, Howard.

For the benefit of others that may be new to this, there are a number of photo websites out there that are free to join that allow their site to be a "host site."  At one time, Photobucket was one of those and I used it a lot, but then they decided that in order to continue doing 3rd party hosting (what that is called), I would have had to pay $400 a year to be able to do it.  I have since moved my photos from Photobucket to Smugmug (which does charge for its use, but far less than Photobucket), and I couldn't be happier.

It would be nice if folks here that are using other sites could tell us of those sites that allow 3rd party hosting.  I have a bit of free time, so I might go checking for myself.
