    Default so what's the verdict on the picture thing?

    is there some kinda replacement to PB that's most are now adopting? or is everyone scattered into multitudes of various methods?

    I would like to show you guys my high speed disc launcher I built with my old blender motor...

    I'm still using google photos. Been using it since it was Picasa, and although I don't like it quite as well as I did it still works just fine and it's convenient for backing up and storing my photos generally, whether or not I share them in the forums.

    I see where Mozilla (Firefox) has an app that will publish the PB's pictures when you surf them
    Not sure if that works yet for me.... without resorting some of the work-arounds posted here

    I think that this should serve as a wake-up call to all Fora management that so-called "Free Hosting Stuff" can disappear or revert to a "Blackmail Model" and result in their threads becoming semi-useless or trash.
    What can be done to host photos locally or at least in a guaranteed secure fashion?

    I am another Google Photo user after Picasa. I still have my photos on my computer with Picasa and just upload the ones I want to share to GPhotos. Contrary to popular opinion, Picasa is still available from a couple of sites that specialize in "old versions" of software. I just loaded it onto a machine for a friend. For the life of me, I don't understand why someone has not picked up Picasa and carried it forward, even if they charged for it. I have Adobe Elements and Elements Primier and another 2 or 3 photo indexing and editing programs and occasional have to use them for more extreme editing, but they are harder to use and don't do emailing photos nearly as easily. I just went through a whole bunch of different programs the other day looking for a Picasa replacement. I could not find anything that was as easy and user friendly.

    You may recall that the following thread caused a stir, since I was unaware of the PB fiasco when I posted its photo. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/thr...st-war+packard.

    I hope I have fixed that problem, with a switch to Imgur. After uploading a photo, I copy and paste the link which is encapsulated by [img]your_photo_link[/img].

    Their terms, among other things, state -

    Stuff not to do
    If someone else might own the copyright to it, don't upload it. Don't upload gore, "hate speech" (i.e. demeaning race, gender, age, religious or sexual orientation, etc.), or material that is threatening, harassing, defamatory, or that encourages violence or crime. Don't upload illegal content such as child porn or nonconsensual ("revenge") porn. Don't hotlink to adult content or to file-sharing, gambling, torrent, warez, or Imgur rip-off sites. Don't impersonate someone else. Also, don't use Imgur to host image libraries you link to from elsewhere, content for your website, advertising, avatars, or anything else that turns us into your content delivery network. If you do and we will be the judge or if you do anything illegal, in addition to any other legal rights we may have, we will ban you along with the site you're hotlinking from, delete all your images, report you to the authorities if necessary, and prevent you from viewing any images hosted on Imgur.com. We mean it.


    So as you can see they can pull the plug on us any time they like because by using them to host our images and linking to them from elsewhere we are already contravening the terms ;-)

    How would people feel if they had a "free" image hosting service which provides free image hosting but has the following caveat: Images get converted into animated GIFs, and a small banner Ad flashes (< 10%) on the top or bottom of the image on/off every 5-10 seconds? You would see your original image/size for 10 seconds, then the small banner Ad (< 10%) gets displayed at the top of your image for 10 seconds, then cycles back to just your image for 10 seconds, etc?
    When in doubt, doubt your doubt.

    Free image hosting is a solved problem. http://use.com has none of those limitations.

    BINGO!!! The Firefox wizards did it! Works beautifully for me - Firefox 55.0.3, Win 10.
