This site Smile

All the public free image hosts are rubbish - the links don't go straight to the image, instead they go to an HTML page with extremely undesirable adverts on it as well as the image. The ones which don't have the adverts suffer from boob police. They also have spasms of slowness and unreliability.

The forum image upload facility on this site just gives a direct link to the image itself, with the option of either a display-size image (for use on this site) or a thumbnail (for use on sites that insist on thumbnails) Smile

Hi Pigeon

I'm not sure I understand. When i tried to upload an Image it came up with the message:

"Sorry, you are not in a usergroup which has permission to use the file upload facility"

which I took to mean I need to upload it first somewhere else, is that wrong?

Also, I don't understand what you mean by: "The forum image upload facility on this site just gives a direct link to the image itself, with the option of either a display-size image (for use on this site) or a thumbnail (for use on sites that insist on thumbnails)"

Doesn't that then mean I still need to upload the image somewhere else, otherwise the direct link would be to my computer???

Sorry for being a noob, I've never tried posting pictures before (never found a site worth trying until now). Smile

Sorry, as pogo says I'd forgotten to add your account to the Uploaders group. Blush Have now fixed that Smile

By "direct link" I mean a link to the actual jpeg file on this server, the image itself, as opposed to a link to an HTML page with the image on it. The image is still uploaded - to this server - it's not a link to your computer Smile

As for the rest pogo has pretty well explained it Smile
