    Hosting via Flickr

    Google Flickr and set yourself an account up, it is free for so many pics.


    So, you have your flickr account here is how too link from there to here:

    First, upload your pic








    Select the folder and pic you want to upload





    Once it has uploaded and you have watched an annoying ad,click the add description bit




    Add a bit if you want here





    Then click save.





    Your pic will now be on your Fickr page, or in an album if you choose one.Next up,click directly onto the pic






    This pops up, cick the share button





    Make sure the BB code point is clicked, then right mouse button click in the code, it will turn blue,select copy.








    Paste that into the thread you want and all will be revealed









    Make sure you resize your pics to 1024 on the longest side, makes the whole process faster, better and easier for the forum.

    Photobucket is another viable option and I can show you the basics of doing that if anyone wants.

    The upside to off forum hosting is that it does not munch Andys bandwidth.

    Downside is that if you delete photos from Flickr or wherever, then they disappear from any threads you have posted them in.

    Flickr keeps quality better deffo.

    Over here if British Telecom are your ISP you get a free flickr Pro account, BT are my ISP so I have no idea on the charges or quantity allowed before being charged. I know photobucket is free, there s also 500px,imgur and many others available for free.


    Thanks Todd,Andy, nice to give something back.

    Photobucket was ok, but is now weighed down severely with ads unless you subscribe. I find it very slow to use now so have just changed over to Flickr.
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.

    Did have a Photobucket account but found the site crashed or not available at times. Moved to Flickr a couple of months ago, much better service for sure.
