Can anyone help me with the steps (shortist) to uploading with photobucket/Imageshack?

1. PHOTOBUCKET - I can upload, but to upload a 2nd picture - I cannot find the UPLOAD button and have to reload photobucket?

Imageshack uploads, but then I cannot find the correct code to copy to the forums?

I would appreciate any help Thanks

Good morning JJ!

Photobucket is the more inconvinient uploader of the both. You have to go back to your albums to be able to see the upload button again. I created an album for the webcams and have to go back to that (read: click on that album) to get the upload button.

For imageshack it's the 'Forum Code' link.

Hope that helps! :thumbs_up:

Good info - thanks LS :thumbs_up:

I'm discovering that I am becoming bit of a creature of habit... I'm finding this change to imageshack quite difficult! :roll:

Still - as much as Tinypic was awesome, there just seems to be too many hassles with it for me.

Hope you got your questions sorted JJ :D

Here is a post which will come in handy. :)

My, my.... I also rather like using Tinypic but as Mel said, it seems to be the end of that line so I guess I'll have to educate myself as well.
Any tips you have that I can use, you know where to find me! :lol:

I just wonder why Tinypic is working again :roll: Well, I upload my pics now on photobucket, just to be sure they will be there tomorrow. :whistle:
To upload all pics stored at Tinypic it will take such a long time and it will be very difficult to replace all pics on the Webcam threads. :cry:

That's the thing CC. They "say" they've been communicating but it didn't go through or whatever. I sent them a rather sharp, pointed message and got the same response that JenB posted:

We heard from many of our users in regards to these changes and we appreciate your feedback. Tinypic has restored linking to your images and enabled uploading. Please rest assured no content was removed from the site. We tried to notify users on Tinypic and requested they move their content to Photobucket. Unfortunately this messaging was insufficient and has taken many of our users by surprise and we apologize. Our intent was to begin combining some of the best features of Tinypic and Photobucket, thereby offering users a better experience. Any changes in the future will be better communicated. Once again, we apologize for the inconvenience.


So this is their standard response, nothing at all.

And, let me tell you, I'll be changing now. And it will most definitely NOT be Photobucket! They've taken over TinyPic and want to drop us just like that. When next do they decide to do whatever and simply do the same? Not a chance!

:thumbs_up: AND on top of it, they're most inconvenient as well. Only good for bulk uploading
(and I dread the day when they actuall do the same as tinypic, as I got my TR pics on there...)

:( :(

Tinypics has worked wonderfully for me! I don't want to change... But I guess if I have to.... :?

At least I know where to go for advice on Photobucket - Bishop, what are your choices, if you aren't going with them?

Good point CC!

I use Flickr for my personal photos and it is fantastic. You can get a free account but there is a limit to how many pictures you can upload a month (it's still heaps - but over a month I think cam-pics would push this limit). As CC says - it's cheap as to purchase an unlimited account.

It's perhaps a tad slower than what tinypic was to upload - but far more reliable (I've never seen a questionable picture or advert on Flickr).

Hmmm... I think this may be another solution to my uploading issues - thanks CC! :thumbs_up:

If you have a googlemail or Gmail account, you can use the Picasa online web-albums. For free. In addition if you download their free software, you can set it up so that the photos you specify (or all photos in a specific album) will be automatically sync'd and uploaded to your online album.

In order to post to the foums, click on the picture you want (online); right click, choose, 'copy image URL'. Go to the forums, click on the image tab, press Ctrl+V and there you have it.

Hope that helps! It will do bulk uploads if you have the original file somewhere on your computer; but you'll have to co and change the image URL for each picture on the forums...

I'm too blonde to handle Picasa or flickr - and Imageshack seems to get slower by the minute... :wall:

Tinypic seemed more user friendly above Imageshack.
Had a lot problems submitting pics. What now??

H.E. did you get the 'impossible to determine the dimensions of your pictures'?

If so, it seems to be a forum thing as it happened to others as well and they use all sorts of pic hosts by now.
