Posting pictures

Postby Chris Jones » Wed Feb 18, 2004 12:06 pm

I'm wondering where I can upload pictures that I want to include in my messages. My Geo Cities account doesn't work well for this as they restrict how many times the picture an be viewed in a given time period. Does anyone know if Yahoo Photos will work? Any other sites? -- free sites I should say. Thanks!

Chris,

There are a number of free sites, and you will receive replies about them. They all seem to have a lot of extra stuff of their own that reduces the size of your picture and increases download time for those of us on dial-up connections.

Have you looked at the free storage space many ISP's provide? After I lost several hundred photos when Photopoint went belly up, I started posting directly on my ISP's server. Currently, I must have about 20 Meg stored there. You may already be paying for this space in your monthly fee.

Give your ISP a call.

This is an example of how the pictures appear:

I use dial-up too and yes my ISP does provide web space but you have to pay for it. I thought internet access prices were supposed to come down. I'd really like DSL. But, I can't afford to be throwing around cash now. Maybe if I find a job this year -- then again perhaps I'd better save what I make because if history repeats itself I'll find myself out of work again in 5 years. And I like to eat. I'll keep looking.

Chris,

I use hp photocartogra
http://www.cartogra.com

It’s free and works very well for me. Sign up and upload your pictures / make your album. When you want to post a picture on the Cub site, open your album check the box on the picture you want to post, go to photo tool ( on the right of page) click on create a link for auction. Highlight and copy the URL and paste it in the message box on the Cub site after you compose your message. In the Cub site look at the row of menu boxes along the top. These allow you to modify your text and add links and photos. With your cursor located in the message where you want the picture to appear click on the box marked "Img". Then paste the link to your photo and then click "Close Tags".

I hope this clear enough for you. If it doesn’t e-mail John ( #$%@! Cub) and he’ll clear things up for you.
