Deano, it is photobucket, they have changed the rules and want money for 3rd party display. Everyone that uses pb has the problem.

otherwise it is good to read from you.

Aww crap on photobucket Curse , thanks so much for the reply Charlie, I know Wayne is having a blast with you Cheers , I'm so glad :clap: .

I have two photobucket accounts, this one was just for here, guess its worthless now. I have a paid for account I had for many years, will do a test shot here, if it works then I'll see if Wayne, Don, Ralph or someone could just wipe this thread out and I'll start a new one. My layout isn't "new" anymore anyways, lol!

I have been back at it for about 2 weeks now, first time I worked on the layout since my Dad passed. You guys know me, I work on trains like mad for awhile(usually in the summer) , then winter comes and it gets cold in the basement so I take a long break, its Deano's trains circle of life :mistht: .

Anyways, heres a test shot from my other account:

I don't understand these things, so I've never used Photo thingies.

Thanks so much David! :tada:

OK, ANY forum mod, PLEASE just delete this thread. It would take a lot of time to transfer all the pics on the account this thread is made of, then repost them, ARGH! Cry

I am up for a new thread, I'll get some new pics together in the next couple days and we'll take another go at this :tada:

Thanks guys!

Nice to see you back here, Deano, even without photos. :tada:

If you have a paid photobucket account, it will work until Dec. 31, 2018, as long as you don't let your subscription lapse. After that, they want $399.00/year if you wish to post your photos in third-party sites.

OMG Wayne, Really? that much, WOW, photobucket has now become totally worthless to me.

Hmm, I also have an imgur account I use for the Eldersrolls Online forum, only used it twice, anyone know if Imgur is good? or really is there ANYTHING out there good for forum pics?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Worship

Thanks guys :tada:

Deano, I post direct to the forum, the pictures have to be below 250 kb but that is fine, and my only wish is that the 5 picture limit per post could be unlimited. It only creates a problem when you want to do a post with instructions, or do a story line with illustrations.

Charlie, for the life of me I cant figure out how to post a pic directly to the forum :oops: , 250k is pretty low I think too though. I seen Ed post a pic from Flicker? I wonder if they are good for posting forum pics? .....anyone.....anyone.....Bueller....... :mistht:

Hi Deano---so good to see you back on line Cheers I also got "dumped" by Photobucket but recently registered with Flickr for free and after a bit of trial and error and some grateful support from Reinhard I think I've found the way to post picture (if I can do it shouldn't be a problem).I did loose a lot of pictures from pb but luckily for me had a backup for some of my photos which I have been uploading onto flickr.Looking forward to seeing some of your photos again soon---great to have you back Cheers

Hi Deano.
Posting direct takes two steps, at the bottom left there is a button "upload attachments" click on that , then the "browse" button. which lets you browse your computer to locate the photo. I have most of mine in "My Picture" folder all ready resized for the web. Before I start the post I COPY the picture to another folder (usually documents folder that I keep empty) at the bottom of the window it will have the "open" button, click on it, that window disapears and the file will apear beside the browse button, to the right of that is the "add the file" button, and once added you are given the option to place in line which can be done by placing the cursor where you want the picture in your story line, then click the "place in line" button.     The script for the picture appears in the text portion of the post and you can place the cursor after that and continue with the storyline. The above picture is 202KB so I think 250 is enough. Just to illustrate how you can continue I will insert another picture from yesterday here.    
It has a 1600X1200 dimension and is 122KB. Most of the photo sharing sites resize your pictures anyway. I lost some pictures a few years ago and had to rescan them. I was thankful they were scans, and not digitals. My digitals are backed up on Google Photos, which is free unlimited if you let the resize them, and the originals are on 3 different hard drives. The fee photobucket is suggesting will buy a lot of hard drives.
