Time consuming and confusing too I would be very happy if you could guide me some easiest way of uploading my pics. directly

Time consuming and confusing too I would be very happy if you could guide me some easiest way of uploading my pics. directlyI'm afraid a direct upload onto the server here isn't possible (and would probably severely slow down the server if it was). It's true, linking image urls can be time consuming and I don't use my photobucket account anymore for the same reason... But since I know you have a facebook account, too - you can also use photos you uploaded there. You'd just have to copy the image url into the [ i m g ] [ / i m g ] tag (I don't know if it works if you begin with "https" instead of "http", so you may have to leave out the "s"). I have countless albums and just link the pictures here. Often enough, I use special albums which are visible only for me but linking the images still works. There's only one downside: About two years ago, facebook changed the urls of my pictures previously shown on other forums, especially the Dinosaur Toy Forum, and the links don't work anymore (the pictures are still in their albums, only the url is different). I could edit every single post affected to update the image url but so far I found it too time consuming.

Are the ones Tyrantqueen posted in the third comment on this page visible to anyone? I get boxes with Xs in them, which is what they did on my collections post. I've been using photobucket so far, but the mobile site is so riddled with popups and ads I can't get through to uploading my photos. And now Flickr does this. Does anyone know of a photo hosting site that's actually user-friendly?
Quote from: BlueKrono on January 25, 2017, 08:37:44 AMThanks for the suggestion. I tried postimage and it worked pretty easily. I was able to find a way to get a "direct link" on that site, as I used to do with photobucket. The problem with bucket is at the upload stage from my phone - the ads and popups make it unusable, and it usually turns off the internet because it can't handle all that garbage. With Flickr I couldn't find a direct link URL, but on postimage I could.
Quote from: stargatedalek on January 25, 2017, 06:25:32 PMI used to use Photobucket but switched to Deviantart a few years ago, the extra fields and other such gibberish things it forces you to fill out for every upload are worth the few seconds in exchange for better security and organization. I've never tried Postimage, how fast is it to upload with?
