Default attaching photos

Since the Photo Bucket picture hosting site eliminated their no fee service I've not managed to find a user friendly site to move pix to so I can upload them to a post here. I've managed to drag and drop a couple pix here, but typically the file is too large. What hosting site are you using to resize pix to a smaller file and ultimately attach here. Appreciate some insight.

What computer operating system and device are you using to access the forum? A PC, MAC, Tablet, Laptop, Cell phone?

If it's something like a PC you can install a pic resizing program on; that would be your best bet. Then let the forum host the small pic so if another pic hosting site goes belly up or wants to charge a million bucks and your first born child; it won't affect what you posted.

I can recommend an excellent picture hosting site that's ridiculously easy to use but you still need to resize your pics down to something under 60kb to make it viewer friendly on the forum and allow the page to load quickly.

Image Resizer: Look on the left side and locate "Mihov Image Resizer" Mihov Image Resizer / resize images - Miha's utililities

There are many other free programs though so it really depends on your preferences.

Best Image Hosting Site I've found: https://postimg.org

what I do in computer is right click on photo.
Then click edit. Photo opens
Then in upper left side edit
Click on edit and then set pitcher to 20%. most of the 20% will work
Then click the red X you'll get popup
save or don't save
you just have to fool around a few times and you'll catch on

Then you can definitely use that software I posted or some other type you might like better. Shoot for 40kb per pic so the forum will accept it.

You can do entire batches of pics at one time with that Mihov software or one at a time.

Default success!

Bingo! The PostImg.org site was easy enough! I attempted to use a couple other sites in the past few months but they were simply not intuitive enough for me. Getting somewhat long in the tooth (albeit just a pup in RicZ years ) I'm just not eager to dig around and learn a new language in the process that goes with all the techie terminology. I had forgotten about Irfanview. I used that several years and couple computers ago. Test pic is my Valkyrie. Descending Scott Mtn. on Hwy 3 in Trinity County.

trying to figure out how to post photos and other stuff is trial and error. Kinda like going down a road that goes from asphalt to dirt
