Sharing photos without Photobucket
« on: February 12, 2017, 01:39:32 AM »
Hey there,

Seems there's not much love for photobucket around here, so I'd like to suggest Flickr as an alternative. It's free, easy and provides unlimited space.

I made a little video and put up some screenshots to show how to upload and share photos.

Click the little upload cloud to be taken to the upload screen.

You can drag and drop photos in and upload as many as you want at one time.



Once your photo is uploaded click on the photo to view it then click the arrow to open the sharing menu



Select the BB code and paste that into your post on the HMA.

'Good info, Josh, although it should really be in the
"Support & Assistance" forum. It's going to get lost
here in "Misc. Discussion".

Are you guys able to copy the bb code from the Flickr app on your phone or iPad? It is a pain in the butt for me..

Thanks for this Josh. Photobucket has so many ad scripts running that I have to close it before posting as it slows my whole computer down and I have a fast PC.

Doh!

Josh -- or whomever knows the answer -- how do I set Flickr photos to be read only here, without them hyperlinking to my Flickr account? I just reset one to Private and refreshed the BB code, but clicking the photo still works.

Thanks.

All photos on Flickr are ready only (that is, not editable), but they can be downloaded by other people. The reason that the link takes you to an editable photo is that your signed in to Flickr and clicking the link in your own photo.

Log out of flickr then paste the BB code, click the code. You'll still be taken to the photo in flickr you won't be able to edit it, just download it. Thats what other people see when they click your link.
