Alternative to Photobucket

Recommended Posts

I am currently using photobucket (the free subscription) but it has made a chore out of searching for photographs in my album.  It seems every click is accompanied by a pop up ad or ads which slows the process to a scrawl.  All I want it for is to store photographs in a format which will allow photos to be posted on this site.  Any suggestions?

 

I'm looking for a simple solution to move photos from my smart phone to the forum if such an animal exists.  I've tried emailing them to me and the image shows when I open the email.  But I cannot copy the image then post it on the forum.

Google Photos or just Google-Drive?

I use image resize+. It works great on my iPhone. Just pick a picture from your album, slide the top over to the percentage of shrinkage you need ( also shows the new total size), and then save it to your photo album. Then you can choose that one to put online. Works great for me. 

 

And yes, I did say “shrinkage” 😏.

I’ll second what way north bass guy said, minus the shrinkage :D that process is much easier than going to a third party hosting site. I have photo bucket to, honestly I don’t even mess with saving anything to it anymore.

Thanks for the replies.  I found out I can move/import photos from my phone to the computer using the photo app in Windows 10.  

 

I signed up for Imgur but when I opened it the page was covered with the most popular photos.  I struggled a bit with it, and gave up for the time being.

 

Moving/importing photos via the photo app is quite simple.  But I have yet to figure out how to re-size the images.  I can find the edit feature, but nothing that will resize them to make them suitable for posting on this site.  It has a "size" button which seems to be more of a cropping tool than reducing the file size.
