    Any Recommendations for a Photo Hosting Website?

    Hi all,

    For some reason I can no longer insert images to my posts. Whilst trying to upload a picture of around 240KB I get a message saying that it exceeds my quota by 19.67MB.

    Anyway, it made me think I might be better going down the photo hosting website route and inserting weblinks when I want to post a photo. However, I don't want to sync all the photos on my phone, and would rather only upload my Nova photos to a hosting website. Also, being a canny Scot, I'd like to do this for free!

    Can anyone recommend a suitable hosting website?

    Thanks in advance, Alistair

    Hi Alistair,
    I use dropbox.com, you get 2Gb free, I am currently using less than half of that.
    When you are posting pics to this forum, you simply paste in the URL (Insert Image Button) as you suggest.

    I email the photos to myself from the phone and pop them onto Dropbox from my PC and insert the link from there. Probably not the most efficient route (there is a 'Gotcha' which I will tell you about)
    So I don't sync everything either.

    I have not used any other hosting services so I can't recommend one over another.
    I am happy enough with Dropbox.

    Imgur.com has worked for me very well for several years...
    It's a 50 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    Good luck Alistair, I'm one of those who is a bad example and couldn't offer any help since I own my own server and no, while I may host my own images, I can't offer image hosting for others.

    Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3 .....

    Hi folks,
    Just want to see if this works. I want to embed a photo from my new hosting site https://i.vgy.me/zXESYW.jpg within this text.
    Cheers,
    Alistair

    Hmmm .... OK, so if you click on the link you can see it, but it's not visible within the post. I'm away to get something to eat then will try again

    use the img tags, like this
    [img*]LINK[/img*]
    But take away the *

    Edit, doesn’t seem to work with vgy.me links...
