Image Hosting
« on: January 30, 2005, 01:03 AM »
I know that a few guys have their own personal websites.  I have a few pics I'd like to be able to post here to show you guys, but I need them hosted somewhere.  Not necessarily a ton of images, just some customs that I'd like a bit of advice on. 

I've got a few customs that are in the works that I could maybe use a bit of help on... so if anyone wants to, please email me at pike1067@earthlink.net.  Thank you.

And I was gonna suggest a PhotoBucket account, just cuz it's handy dandy for this kind of thing.

Thanks Dimetrodon!

JJ, the only reason I don't do something like that is because I have a very slow internet connection (can't get DSL where I live)... I tried doing it about a year ago, and every time I would try to upload an image, the computer would literally freeze up.  It's so frustrating.  I can email them though without a problem.

Thanks for the help!

I have a ton of customs I'd like to post, but I'm wondering, can JD host images? If so, I can't figure out how, so some help'll be nice.

PS, please don't flame me if this has been posted before

I recommend using www.PhotoBucket.com
I currently have tons of images up there and so far I have not had a bandwidth problem.  They are pretty easy to use and are perfect for linking your images to forums.
The scariest thing that I've ever seen,
Is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

Flickr.com is my favorite.  Of course, they're the only one I've ever tried.  Never had any problems with them, though.

I know about getting them hosted somewhere else, I was just wondering if JD could host them. I thought I saw that it could, but I wasn't sure

I don't think the site hosts custom pics unfortunately.  How many pics are you talking about?  Email me at rykrofenloe@yahoo.com if you like and I can probably host a few for you.

I'd recommend a Photobucket account as well.  I got mine set up and when I mess with photos to host them that's been a reliable service, it's free, it seems to hold a lot...  At least a lot by my standards.

I'd say go with Photobucket too then.

I dig the imageshack.us site m'self. Easy to use and I've never hada problem with it being unaccessable.

One more thought, a lot of schools and workplaces have photobucket blocked...
