Image Hosts
 
As you know, ImageBam & ImgBox are closing down, everything hosted by them will be lost after the 30th June 2017.

Unfortunately we will lose an awful lot of content posted here, with the best will in the world there is no way a lot of major posters can save and re-up the material they have posted using those hosts.

This forum will carry on, eventually all the dead posts will be either re-upped or removed, and no doubt a large percentage of the material will sooner or later be reposted.

What we do not want is to have this happen again, where we rely to heavily on one image host, we want members to use a variety of hosts, this way if one of them does close down the damage will not be as severe.

So, if you know of a reliable host please make a reply and link us to it.

Currently we have a thumbnail size rule of no more that 180 x 180, we are looking at that rule and may amend it to a maximum of 250 x 250, if the host is a good one, a gallery option is preferred, but that rule too is being looked at.

What we do not want is cash hosts, or hosts that swamp you with ads and pop ups/unders.

Please upload a few images with your host, and link us to the main page, if when you preview your post you find that your post looks like this...

[IMG]http://*********.com/images/thumbs/1305/v2Mmx.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://*********.com/images/thumbs/1305/igb4X.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://*********.com/images/thumbs/1305/A3fL4.jpg[/IMG]

....it means that the host has been banned here.

It is also desired that the host allows adult images.

I am currently using http://www.hotflick.net/,It allows adult content,Has a 180 x 180 Thumbnail option and It features a Gallery option too,TBH though I personally have never viewd ant gallery on any other host..

Imagevenue is the obvious choice which I have used for years but reverted to imagebam because imagevenue would frequently go mad and freeze on me. Of course it is up to you mods to let us know what other picture hosts can be used but can I please impress upon you to tell people not to use imgtiger-it has too many pop-ups AND you have to click on an advert(which doesn't always appear) and then wait 10 seconds before clicking on the go to your image, and again it doesn't always load. Thanks.

I also just started to use hotflick.net. It is easier to use than imagevenue.com if all you want to do is upload one photo which is mostly what I do on my subscription threads. Some threads though such as : The Great Pizza Thread sometimes require multiple photo posts. I have not tried that yet using hotflick.net

Hotflick.net seems to be a great one!

I just loaded an album of Addison (modern model) and it went very smoothly and love the more thumbnails per line than even Imagebam had when linked in to VEF. BTW, you mentioned uploading 1 photo. I just uploaded 77 photos all at once and it went faster than it did with Imagebam. The link of course is similar...copy and paste of the URLs to the topic here. One thing I did NOT like about Imagevenue unless I misread the instructions there. You can only upload at most 10 photos at a time. Thus, my 77 photos would have taken 8 uploads instead of 1 with hotflict.net. Great info, Trailmaster!

OK, I am just doing further investigation of Hotflick.net vs soon to be departed Imagebam. One gigantic plus of Hotflick.net is the albums can be found via alphabet letters. I literally had 47 pages of Imagebam albums and if I wanted to ADD pictures to an existing album, sometimes it took me forever to find it out of like 500 albums. The negative which sort of counters the positive on Hotflick.net is I see no way to add to albums. They have "Create album" and "Don't create album" but no "Add to existing album" like Imagebam had. Thus the albums are much easier to find but you can't do much with them other than viewing them after you find them. LOL!

If you register with them you can upload more than 10 images at a time, the most I have tried is 23 images, so far. :thumbsup:.

Thanks Mal for tipping Hotflick image host. Transfered the photos in this post from Imagebam to Hotflicks. Seems easy to use. Just concerned about the size of the thumbnails on the later pictures. Is that ok?

Some are too big,You need to click "Resized" to keep Them 180 x 180

Yes it`s a damn decent site :cool::thumbsup:
Once a person get`s used to it :o
As I had a bit of jip with a certain set of banana images... Ahem ... :D
I`m hedging my bets though and using a combination of that and imagevenue for my re-upping.
Along with postimage for all non adult imagery. Which in the main is what I post ,and since that host is linked to the Facebook family it won't be going anywhere anytime soon hopefully :)

Another thumbs up for Hotflick. Been transferring some galleries today and updating my posts. Pretty straight forward and painless.
