    Thumbs upWeb Based Image Hosts

    As many probably know, the nice little feature we have here for attaching an image to a post uses quite a bit of bandwidth not to mention some space too.

    Linking an image into a post does not affect us in the same manner, so it is the preferred method of showing TLP your pics.

    However, most free web based image hosts do not allow off-site linking.

    If anyone has or nows of one that does or just knows of a good hosting site please post it here. This thread is not for discussion of the topic however, please limit your posting to actual image hosting site information.

    I will start the list with a nice one that I have used some, it was originally posted by a fellow member "duztin". Thanks duztin!

    This one is free and allows linking, be kind and make a small donation to them if you can afford it.

    I pay $20 a year for 50Mb or 500 pics. I haven't had any problems using their services. I upload all of my pics there and link to them. They even resize the pics when you upload - kind of a pisser at times, but for the most part, it saves me work.

    Thumbs upIt Is Not Free But It Works For Me

    Like I always say, Image Event is the best. I pay $24.00 a year, I paid a one time fee of $19.95 and now I can have up to 3000 images, with a maximum 10 MB per image. Hard to beat! Plus it is really easy to use.

    This image is 61 k or so, i could go up to 1 MB on the same image or down too. Very simple and easy to post and there are no adds, or distractions. Plus I can e-mail a whole album to a dial up guy and he can access directly from the thumbnails. Cool stuff. You can also post up .Mpg, .avi and other movie formats........

    That would be enough to get me to switch! Thanks Doug!

    Interesting timing... seems that attachments closed down Cycleforums for a bit!
    Copied from the home page there!

    Database error cleanup

    ETR UNKNOWN

    UPDATE:
    Cause of errors: resources have exceeded 65535 handles in attachment DB,
    trying to find a quick fix to bring back online with attachments...... might
    have to go a day without attachments.


    FIX IS RUNNING
    mysql is currently changing attachment.attachmentid from smallint(5) to
    int(10) thanks to vbulletin thinking noone would ever have more than 65535
    attachments, haw haw.

    Might take a bit to run, then i have to re-check the tables.... still ETR of
    40 minutes or less.

    ETR is 40 minutes.

    Time is 1130CST

    And that is EXACTLY what we are trying to avoid here.

    I love images. They are helpful and cool.
    But this habit of using the "this post is worthless without pictures" emoticon is a habit we need to break.

    Attaching images is fine, but keep them small and try to find a host. Simply put, when you get a new pieces part, we don't need 17 angles/posts.
