Posting photos.

Post by Gibbo2286 » 04 Mar 2017, 12:36

I've been using Photobucket for putting images up but it seems to have all gone to pot recently, tried for ages yesterday without any success.
Any tips?

You can attach them here directly now but if you need a photo-host then your ISP will likely do it or try Google Photo's (Google Drive).

I've used Facebook for this for a while.

Also Dropbox, which is handy in that, like Fb, you can create a folder and provide others with a 'view only' link to just that folder, thereby potentially sharing particular folders with particular people. I use one for my choir website, with 'committee only' stuff in one folder, and public stuff in another

Dropbox are limiting their service soon - unless you have a paid account.

I think that might be what photobucket is up, they keep offering 'ad free' for a subscription.

I tried to add a photo (jpg) as an attachment today (not had problems before) but after uploading it tells me "The image file you tried to attach is invalid."

I reduced it's size from 3.8mb to 400kb and get the same status error which isn't very helpful.

Is 400kb still too big? What is "invalid" or better still, what is valid?

AFAIK the forum photohost should automatically resize photo's.

Will have a look for something bigger to test it.

Could you email the offending file to admins@frenchcarforum.co.uk so that I can test it?
