like I said, attachments are ok for one photo or another, [ along with the unwanted exif crap, as you have demonstrated]

was lurking on the suk for three years before I plucked up the courage to post an intro

this place was the foremost fly fishing forum on earth, and was made to feel welcome

my first tr from orkney was posted contemporaneously, for the most part, off a shitty laptop using photoshitbags

I might be an uneducated, snaggly-toothed, limey, commie, fuck-wit, who can't tie my laces, but suggestions as to 3rd party hosting my shitty pics would be appreciated

thanks

and kisses
I recently uploaded all my pictures to Google Photos, works out well since I use Picasa for quick and dirty editing etc. Here's a test of linking from Google Photos Image

If you see the fish, then may I recommend Google Photos

thanks Red,

I posted a link earlier to the google photo help page, more in desperation than anything else, and yes, I use picassa for the down and dirty editing before lightroom but,

I just had a trawl though the whatcha tying thread, and it's depressing how much has been lost due to photosuckbollox greed

life is transitory I suppose...

it's 23.00 here, and I'm half cut

stay safe on the east coast mate

Alright, trying to throw down a TR and still can't do pics. I've realized its only iPhone pics. I've always done it the way Red said in the first post. Take the pic, downsize it, then save it to a folder and upload it directly here. I can do this fine with any pic that didn't come from my iPhone.
Its really pissing me off.

I take my pic and save it as a small file:
Capture size.JPG
Capture size.JPG (22.62 KiB) Viewed 834 times
then I get this fucking error:

No, you stupid fucking website, the original pic was 4032 x 3024. I resized it to 320x240 as you can see in the screen grab.

I tried to save it as a smaller pic by:
Opening it in Paint and saving it as a smaller size(700 pixels)
Emailed it to myself as a small size(way under 750 pixels)

Same fucking error every time. Again, this is only with iPhone pics. WTF man?!?

Alright, apparently if I export it from Picassa rather than just save as a new name it works... Fuk me this shit is weak. Speypages you drag and drop any file you want. WFF is even easier.

Right, Picassa doesn't resize the file till you export it. Set the size to 750 and you're good

Photobucket does indeed suck big, hairy Moose cock.

I've been using Fickr for a while now and until they cut us off it's working well for third party hosting. Lots of free storage too.

I also use the sites uploader but I'm converting and downsizing pics in PS first. It works well if your images are under the size limit.

Uploaded to flickr last year, still works

Suk's uploader. SLR Image scaled down to 1000px wide, no compression.

Yeah, I got that to work as well. I just always used Paint. Ctrl W and set the pixel size. Done!

I'll get a TR up today. Maybe....
