Photo Uploads

Post by ganon578 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:06 pm

What's the best way to upload and/or imbed images for the reviews these days, now that the hosting software has changed?

I can't seem to figure it out via the old methods. :(

I think I've just enabled attachments for this forum -- can you see it at the bottom of the 'post reply' page?

Ahah! That seems like that's it. I'll try to use that function on reviews. I'll let you know if I have problems.

Thanks!

EDIT: Yep, that worked. Is there still a cap on attachments like previous (512 kb/image)?

It's set to 256KiB/file, 5 files per post at the moment. Can increase it if you want -- if people want to post images straight from a camera it's probably better to use something like Imgur though.

No need to increase. There's options there, I just didn't start an account anywhere to do so yet.

Thanks for the help!

I see the Attachments tab next to the Options tab below the text entry field here in the Reviews subforum, but not here. Could you enable it with the 512 kB/image limit? I've made more stuff, but have long since forgotten my Photobucket info.

I'm a bit reluctant to when there are some decent hosts that have been around for years -- the review forum attachments are more for images ready resized for upload.

I'd suggest Imgur for fire-and-forget uploads that are still likely to be online for a long time, given the high traffic from Reddit they already carry, or Google Photos for personal hosting to organise files and use anywhere.
