WARNING for Image Shack Users

Unread post by saraf »

In the last month Image Shack, one of the photo sharing websites used by forumites, has announced that it will no longer be hosting photos for free. All Image Shack members should have received emails from the company telling them about it.

This means that from this weekend any link to a photo loaded onto a free Image Shack account will no longer work on this (or any other) forum. Paid for accounts will be unaffected.

From January Image Shack will remove all photos from the free accounts that have not upgraded to paid status. If you use Image Shack as an online back up for your photos and you have not converted to a paid account you will lose the ability to access your photos.

The Mods like to see a tidy forum so if in the course of our work, we come across any Image Shack link that does not work then we will remove it.

Again this only affects the free Image Shack accounts. If you use a paid for account then you should not be affected.

Please let any of the Mods know if you have a query about this and we will do our best to help.

If your photo's have geolocation data you can search by location.
Also has facial recognition so you can search for pictures of Mark at Crocodile Bridge for example.
