Slightly off topic: For those who use TinyPic to post screenshots

RevenwynRevenwyn Posts: 307 Member
For those who post screenshots of your game, be aware that if you use TinyPic they are ceasing operations soon and you'll need to find a new site to host your images (don't forget signatures too!) Photobucket charges for linking, so I stumbled on a different site recently. PostImages where you can host your pics and create an account. There is a size limit of 3mb per picture I believe but it has easy resize abilities.

Just thought this would be helpful. :-)

    I use Imgur, it doesn't throttle views, it doesn't cost money, and it doesn't purge old images. I recommend it highly.

    Yeah this one doesn't purge either

    You can use Wordpress and publish to a private blog post and host pics from there.

    You can put your pics on any blog site, including Tumblr.

    I like imjur, myself. I'm getting really tired of Photobucket sending me emails to tell me I'm over the free limit on my images. They just want money. I've pulled several of the ones I wanted to keep, but I guess I'm going to have to shut it down.

    I’ve been using imgur for many years I don’t even remember when I opened my account. No complaints too...

    Photobucket is quite limited and Tumblr is blocked in some countries. Wordpress has limited storage.

    I used to use Photobucket but they changed things, then I switched to Tinypic but since I read that they are closing, I use Tumblr.

    I use to use photobucket till they started charging and my pictures didn't show up in my post. Someone here recommended Imgur and I started using them. I like them a lot.. I don't need to do anything to my pics or resize them.

    Way back before Photobucket started asking for money I jumped ship because the overall site was already going downhill. I've been using Flickr for years. Only recently did they cap their limit from 1TB to much smaller. I still prefer Flickr but mostly I use tumblr since that's my blog for sim screenshots anyways.

    You don't have to have an account on PostImages either but I prefer to because I like to keep things in sim family albums. :)
