Photo hosting

Recommended Posts

I recently signed up with Flickr as the site to store my truck photos.

However I am less than enthused with it because I uploaded two photos into am album

but can't seem to find out how to send them here.

What do most of you use to host your photos?

What do most of you use to host your photos?

1. Click on your photo on Flickr

2. At the bottom right of the screen there is an arrow that points to the right. Click on it.

3. A small block will pop up. Choose BBC Code. Right click it and choose "copy."

4. Open a separate page with the Model Car Forum thread that you want to post a picture on. In the text area, right click and choose "paste."

5. You will only see code until you click "submit." Then your photo should appear.

Flickr is what I use and it seems to work good for me.

Thanks for the replies. 

After I click on one of the photos that I uploaded I don't see any arrow

in the bottom right corner.

Now what ?

Seems as though you should be able to right click on the pic, choose 'copy' or "copy image' and paste it here in the text box. The pic should show as soon as you paste it. I use Fotki, and I do this all the time...........either on IE at work, or at home on Firefox. I don't have Flickr, but that should work with any .jpg or .png photo.

Hope this helps!

You don't need a photo host on this site. I did a Print Screen, pasted it into MS Paint, selected the area, and pasted it below.

You don't have much control over the size of the image, but that's not a big deal.

Did you post your photos as private, because when I look at your Flickr page, nothing shows. That may be the problem.

My photos are private but I don't think that should make a difference. When I was on a different hosting site my

album was also private and I never has any issues sending photos to another site
