Well, I can't see any of the photos, just a message saying 'this photo is currently unavailable' :(

That's weird, bert, and no, I still can't see the ones on the first post, only the giraffee in the second post. Any idea what the problem might be?

Hmm

I can see these 4 but I can't see one posted in another thread. And when I click on the link there is only one photo in the photostream in Flickr.

So maybe the photos have been removed but are still in a cache somewhere. Or the photos are still there but have been marked as private?

Morning all
Thanks for the comments on the foto's, I think the reason why only some of you can see the foto's and some of you not might be that I have deleted them from the photostream after pasting them on the forum.
I was also shocked yesterday when I was on my phone and seen that the foto's was not there, so I came back to look on the computer and it was still here.
The reason is that I was just thinking to keep the photostream clean as they are already here, but I see that you can still zoom in if the foto's are in the stream.
Your comments would be appreciated and sorry for those who are not able to see it.

AG, your forum 'posting' of photos is only a link to the Flickr photostream, so when you delete the pix on Flickr, they are no longer available on the forum :(

Better perhaps to use TinyPic, where once you register as a member (which is free), your pix will never be deleted (unless of course, you remove them) so will always be linked to the forum.

I think that those forumites who CAN still see the pix that I can't see must have first looked at them while they were still on Flickr and now have the pix in their personal computer cache :?

Tinypic were bought by Photobucket and we have had a lot of problems with them in the recent past. Some rather unsavoury images were being substituted for genuine images. Also there are consistent rumours that they are financially unstable and people in countries other than the UK and USA were being blocked from using the site.

In addition, those ads on the free service just annoy me. No I don't believe that I've just won an iPhone 4GS. So personally, of the three, I prefer Flickr.

If you delete the photos from Tinypic the link is broken, just as on Flickr.
