I don't think you can get a google hosted photo to display on this site. I tried to no avail.

Anybody?

I only use Google Photos for backup not 3rd party hosting.

That said, per Google, once you get the link you can add either ?.jpg or -tmp.jpg to the end of it and it will host to forums. I just tried it and couldn't get it to work yet. But I've seen sites say that it does in fact work.

I've been using Smugmug for about 7 years. It's $40/year, but I also host photos there for my website/blog and have been very happy with the low annual fee.

Test 2


I tried a very large file map image, and it was too big... So, there are limits. Not a problem.

One more try from the WWII Poleline Road trip:

I don't see any selection called "Large", but yours seems to be the "Forum" (640 pixels) setting?
I have mine at the next one larger, "15" Monitor" (800-pixel) setting.
Either way, works nice and does not mess the page up and require editing by BajaNomad to fit here.

You either need a bigger monitor or glasses so you don't blow out the zoom on your monitor.

No other explanation is possible for your multi-year obsession on this point.

JZ, you are failing to understand or ever notice how Doug has to follow your photo posts and size them correctly.

You use Photobucket and have not bothered to click on the 800-pixel upload option.

See the "edited by BajaNomad" lines below many of your 1200+ pixel-wide images. Editing your photos with [img=800x600 ] in the opening tag is how to do it.

This is a NOMAD size on the Internet and has NOTHING to do with me, my monitor, or anything other than the frame width on the Internet as chosen by Doug (and most other forums, by-the-way). The difference is other forums automatically resize the too big images.

Years ago I got the idea from one nomad or another to use photobucket as a host for posting photos in forums.

Now photbucket is asking me for $39.95 a month. 0% chance i will pay to post pictures in a post. They have the most popups and rudest adds.

What is the new way to host photos and post them in your posts?

Here's an idea, ask for a refund, bwahahaha! I'm sure you have "used" photo bucket for yrs and haven't paid a dime, correct? Disclaimer, a very close friend owns photo bucket and has for yrs, 15-16? He lost money and struggled for a very long time. Please don't bash the site in a public forum just because you want to continue and ride a free gravy train. Thanks!

[Edited on 7-15-2017 by BajaNomad]


your friend has the most obnoxious pop up adds for miles around.
photobucket is no good for photo storage because of the low resolution photos. Only enough pixels to post on the web. Is your friend sick or something? Why the knife in the back to all the users?

Do not expire?
Should we start using this site to help tell a story in our posts?

All which users? Pardon my ignorance (I don't believe there's such thing as "free" hosting sites and don't use them); do paying accounts also display those obnoxious ads you complain about?


It is not free.
like television, you suffer through commercial advertisements.
The boycot photobucket site has some of the nasty-est headache style adds.
Commercial advertisements generate millions in revenue, if you know how to get people on your site. If you repulse people with your adds, you get less money.
