Easiest Photo Upload Site
Posted by M60_ tanker on Thursday, November 5, 2020 2:50 PM

Need to start posting my finished models. What is the easiest site to use for FSM?

I can stumble my way through most any software . Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Nothing is impossible as long as somebody else has to do it.

Need to start posting my finished models. What is the easiest site to use for FSM?

The question is akin to "What is the best airbrush?" or "Who makes the best paint?" and so on.  There will be a range of answers, all of them subjective to the respondent.

Having said that, I went to Postimage, after the Photobucket debacle.  It's a free site, though they do offer paid subscriptions, for more storage and better features.  Postimage covers my need to have a hosting site and get links to use elsewhere in the web.  There are a couple of downsides that I've found, but they're not severe enough to make me go to a different host.

One, and this is the more serious of the two, is that at least twice in the past, the owners of the site allowed their domain registration lapse. Each time, someone jumped in and grabbed it, holding it for ransom.  Each time, the owners chose to get a new domain. That caused an inconvenience, shall we say, with established links we Postimage customers had used aroung the web.  The links needed to be updated to use the new domain, or replaced altogether.  That can be disconcerting to a customer.

The other issue is that organizing folders at Postimage is pretty basic.  In any given folder, or "gallery", you can choose to sort by filename or upload date/time.  If you organize your images at all, that's something to take into account.  You can't drag and drop images within a gallery, that I have yet found.  But in the big scheme of things, it's not a big deal.

Yet another victim of the Photobucket debacle ransom scheme. I moved over to Flickr and haven't had an issue since. It was like $3.00 a month for the 'Pro' category with unlimited storage.

Yeah, it can be worth it to take a paid subscription, whichever site you eventually choose.

Unfortunately, Kalmbach has chosen not to host image files here, so we each have to find our own hosting solutions.

I use Imageshack.  Easy to pick your size and a couple of clicks and you're set.  Runs me about $20 a year.  No problems with it.

Edit:  Oops.  Didn't realize this wasn't a new thread.  Okay...so Imageshack gets my vote...TWICE!  Big Smile

Perhaps I didn't explain well, I run my clubs' Facebook page and East Mids Model Club website, mostly for the Hobby show we run.

You can link to pages or indvidual pics on either.

FB is nominally free,  the web page hosting (and domain name registration) isn't, but since we pay for it anyway, we use it as a marketing tool, contact point & image hosting.

These won't suit everybody, but is another option.

This is timely because I am about to Max out the free images that I get with Flickr. I love the program, but current subscriptions are running at $71 annually. And that is the cheapest of the 3 plans offered. Too rich for my blood. I'll be looking.

I use Imgur. They made a recent change to their code that makes it kind of clunky to use. However, it is free, so there is no need to complain.

Your comments and questions are always welcome.

This post made me check what I have. Mine just renewed for 59.00. I didn't even see any other options. I know some time back they began a free account option that was somewhat limited and I elected to just continue with what I signed up with back in 2008. As far as the OP it is a very easy site to use and as for sharing your pics here I just copy and paste the BB code into the body of the text.

A number Army Viet Nam scans from hundreds yet to be done:
