Dear Members,

It has come to our attention that Tinypic will no longer be active and that their links will not available for much longer.

TinyPic going through a conversion at this time. What you will need to do at this time is move all the media to your current Photobucket account OR register a Free account with Photobucket at this time to transfer your media to. To sign up click the following:

Sign up for Photobucket.

After creating an account you will want to upload your media using the upload via web url as shown in the following FAQ link:
Upload from a Web URL

You will also want to review the upload settings prior to uploading to ensure the images are not getting reduced in size upon uploading to your new Photobucket account. Please see the following FAQ prior to uploading:
Set Your Upload Options

Once you have transferred your media you are welcome to begin linking again. Old links from TinyPic will not longer be active and they will eventually expire and be removed. For fresh links please use your new Photobucket Album. Here are the FAQs on Photobucket for more assistance in your transition.Details and examples of many of the features provided with your Photobucket account are available at this location. If you are unable to find the answer to your question, please contact us again.
Photobucket Help


Sincerely,

Your Photobucket Support Team


We therefore ask all members using Tinypic not to host there any longer although they still accept some uploads. Please assist us in saving as many of your pics on this site as possible by rehosting on Photobucket or elsewhere?
You Trip Reports are also very important to all our members and to SANParks so should you want to edit your URL's, please PM any mod to unlock your topics for you.

Many thanks in advance.
The mod team.

This is the lasts notification on Tinypic:

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.
