Photobucket alternative?

Post by steve00136 on Sun Sep 10, 2017 10:54 pm

Is there any other way of posting pictures onto this forum - the photobucket website is now so full of pop up ads that its difficult to know whats what!! When i manage to get to the code and paste it and then do a preview there is no pic and the code has disappeared.
Is there an alternative method?

Thanks for reply, been to the serving.com website but it appears to be up for sale.
It would seen that so long as the image is online and has a url then it's just a matter of putting that url between the two IMG brackets? Is that correct?

I've just pretended to insert a photo and clicking on the 'insert an image' it took me straight to the servimg (servimg not serving) box and I could select anything from my tablet files. When you first click on the 'insert' button you get an email from servimg to say you have registered and gives you a password. After that initial registration you go automatically to servimg. I can't comment on the website being for sale as I don't get taken to the website. Just to test again, here is a photo inserted now.


That took less than 10 seconds
Edit - I just went through Google to servimg.com and got no mention of the website being for sale, it just took me to the log-in page.

You don't need to go through their website, just click on the little computer screen with floppy disc in front in the header of the reply box. It should all happen automatically (3 to the left of YouTube link).

It is indeed.

All you are doing is adding the HTML code manually rather than getting a piece of software to do it for you. Using Servimg is very easy but the advantage of typing your own code is that you can link to any publically available picture if the owner hasn't specifically blocked it (as Photobucket have unless you pay them). sensored1

The format is here:




Note the square brackets and the / in the closing bracket. The numbers in curved brackets are the size you want the picture to display. If you leave them out the picture shows in its original size.


Incidentally if you click on the page icon on the far right of the editor you can toggle between "WYSIWYG" and "HTML" so you can see the code and the effect.

Adding pictures is quite easy as explained above but the help section still tells us to use Photobucket? Confused me and someone else today trying to post a picture of a TV table.

I only see a Stop sign but If I paste the link the image is shown within a web page which the forum post may not like, this is doing it slightly different

Admin will be removing the reference to Photobucket as soon as he gets a chance.
