I was wondering if some of you might suggest which photo hosting service I should subscribe to to be able to post phots here on the diorama forum, Photobucket? flickr? something else? I've about finished my Custer's Last Stand diorama (with all 5 companies) and would like to post pics of it here. Thanks for your assistance.

Those are fine if I'm at my desktop. On the road, my Android and Kindle make viewing Photobucket and Flickr a real pita.

I use Imageshack, a lot cheaper than Photobucket.

Flickr for me.

According to posts last year, Photobucket has changed its policy so that you can only post links if you use the paid service.

Dan I looked at your Failed conversion of Skorath into Prang.

Don't know what a Prang looks like but your work looks good to me.

What's wrong with it?

Here is another link. No online photo needed or photo service:

I use Flickr and have not had any issues since switching from Photobucket.

TinyPic is a photo service and keeps an online photo.

I have read that TinyPic may remove images that have not been viewed for 90 days. So keep in mind your purpose. If it is to share a picture now, it will work. If you want it to be visible in a forum a year from now, it might not.

Maybe people have read that thread (mentioned by Condotta) often enough to keep those pictures live?

My pictures all go straight to Google Photos. I like it fine, but wish it were easier to share them in a forum. I have seen ways to do it (and have done here, I believe), but it has not been convenient.

Dragon 6: "What's wrong with it?"

I should have smoothed over the putty at many different points, plus much of the detail I thought was there ended up gone because I put too much material.

But don't worry. I'll make a decent Prang out of him yet. I lost my last visit in the flood, but just bought a new one online.

"I lost my last visit in the flood" should be "I lost my last visor in the flood".

Along with what to use, price is another hangup.

Tinypic is free.
