I tried not logging in to imagepost and using it as a host. Bad idea - for me.

imagepost posts lived for about 1 day and then died - I rehosted with imagevenue (a pain to configure the post) and all is well.

I will probably will try to use one of the other host suggested.

https://pixhost.to/



Very similar to Imagebam and better IMO
10 meg image limit
JPG, PNG and GIFs
You can name a gallery
Accepts dirty pics of shemale nuns
and, get this, it even accepts family safe pics
200 pixel thumbs which we've approved for VEF
No joining, no emails, no nothing, ad free and Norton gave the site a green light

Plus, I used Imagebam, my connection speed is a bit wild card, but I think this host seems quicker than Imagebam was.

You can name a gallery...
I tested out this host today and used it to rehost images for a bunch of my posts.

Other things I like:

Unlike turboimagehost (which limits gallery names to 20 characters) pixhost seems to allow long gallery names.
You can drag and drop a lot of files from explorer onto the pixhost webpage to add them to the upload queue, then drag and drop more if needed, before uploading.
You can choose between a list of files vs. thumbnail images in the upload queue.
When you click on any image, then full-size image webpage has a link to the gallery in the upper right corner.
In gallery view, there is automatically a link at the top to download a zip file of all images in the gallery.
You can remote upload a bunch of images from a list of URLs. So I can click on my imagebam thumb, then right click the full size image and select "copy image location", then paste the URL into pixhost's remote window, repeat for any number of images, and then upload them all without having to download anything.

What I don't like:

After uploading images to a gallery, I see no way to add more images to the same gallery, nor to edit the gallery.
I can't find a list of my galleries anywhere at the image host website, nor view one of them without clicking on an image first or clicking on a link to the gallery if I find it posted somewhere.

Update: I used a combination of thumbs from pixhost and turbo image host to reup the images in the following post, in order to fit different size thumbs in a way that looked good to me:

True
I just re upped the first 2 posts in this thread,
http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/sho...d.php?t=288783

Still experimenting right now and will try other hosts or methods within that thread for the time being.

I suppose we gotta, like anything, take the good with the bad in a crappy situation.

Default So Pixhost or...

I have been away for a while. So imagine my dismay when I logged in just now and saw that Imagebam is shutting down. Although I'm not a mega poster, I have been using IB for a long time,and have been replacing older Imagevenue posts with Imagebam. So I'm wondering if I should just go back to Imagevenue, even though it seems individual images disappear quite frequently? It would be nice to replace a single dodgy image in a gallery rather than reupping the lot.

So, Pixhost? Imagevenue? Turboimagehost? Don't want to start using one of those spammy pop-up hosts...

Cheers, Rip

Thanks Den Post did look good

I just did a few more re ups and another thing I noticed at PixHost was a gallery can be downloaded in a zip file, that's a big plus

Can I beg people not to switch to 'Imagetwist'...? A lot of posters at PlntSzy use this host and half the pix fail to load for me every time I visit the place.

Also Q for the beleagured Modding team; back when we had the inbuilt image uploader, who was that linked to? AS if the same host we'll lose those uploads too...?

I have been using it on PS. I`m very satisfied with their service and I have more than 90% of my thumbs posted here, already hosted there. also, I have never had any difficulties opening other peoples images (with no script & add block on). so, for me it`s no brainer: if they are allowed, I`ll use them on VEF.

here is the test that Boatguy did and his issues with IT: http://vintage-erotica-forum.com/sho...postcount=2128

since the guy that says that he ownes IT is here, and seems to be very interested in his host being allowed here, meybe mods can talk to him and see if his willing to meet some needs of big picture posters from VEF.

since I use them to host my thumbs, my main demand is reliability, and that, they have been.

Imagetwist works ok for me.

BTW, do you have to be registered at turboimagehost to upload files? I just tried to upload a whole Natasha Johnston gallery there, and it wasted my time uploading the whole thing and then said "Sorry, your files were not uploaded." WTF?
