Are you opposed to self hosting?


:lol:...I don't even know what that means!....:lol:


I use photobucket, you just upload the picture, then when you have it uploaded there is a share tab when you mouse over the picture. Click that and it gives you the URL, then on here you can click that picture that looks like a mountain view and paste the URL in.


I'll try that.

This way you can post any size picture you want. Speaking of size, you may have to resize the picture. We've all seen those giant ones some people post.


It was definitely my wife's camera. I had no problem posting a picture using my Droid.

I use Picasa to resize.

Been meaning to ask you, do you remember or know an artist from Chicago name Sparrow?

I do not Rich. (not personally)

I have been working with digital pictures since, well... a very long time. ;)

Picasa is my "quick editor" of choice when Photoshop is not needed.

He specialized in black panthers. Was a long time ago. It was very easy to pick out his work.

I was surprised to see all the options Picasa offers. Thanx for the tip.

So is IrfanView.

And the MSPaint on Win7 is far better than the old versions.

You could download the pic to your phone, then use the DBStalk app to post it. Just a thought.

Dropbox works for me.
You can have a public folder and private folders.

That won't help for this purpose.

You could use services like TinyPic, Imageshack, Photobucket or a few dozen others.

Self-Hosting would be if you had your own website or if you have web space provided by your ISP. Most offer at least some space for personal files. Some are more generous than others.

You would then upload from your PC to your web space and use a link from there to display your pics here using the IMG tags.


Head go boom yet?

OK, I understand. That would be perfect. Can I do that on Picasa? Hmmm.

Starting to make sense now. In your scenario, it would be kinda like putting in a link, no?

If you bought a scanner, some version of photo software is usually included.

Of course we have a scanner, or my wife does, I should say. It's buried someplace in her scrapbooking room under thousands of dollars worth of scrapbooking crap and I don't have the software on my computer. Are you beginning to see a trend here, my wife's camera, my wife's scanner, my wife's extremely expensive obsession with scrapbooking...:lol:

That software is buried in that room and my wife's in Pittsburgh. Maybe when she gets back. Right now I'm trying to put something on eBay and I've gotta use her camera again and my heads gonna explode again....:lol:
