Over the years - posted photos on both model boat mayhem and rc groups - I don't think bouncing between sites is a bad thing - speads the information out - benefit to all.

After a little coaching from Mike, I find that I really Like the external hosting option. Signing up for Flickr took just seconds because I already have a Yahoo ID. Before I couldn't upload pictues larger than 640x480 with out the upload crashing in the middle. The external hosing picture posting is much fast for me to upload and no resizing of the pictures.

Thumbs up from me

cool

I might have .....might have...... sorted/improved the pic loading.

Basically we had one file with all the pics in and the same file for new uploads ...this file is huge...containing 26000 pics !

With the new upgrade I just spotted an option to create a new file for the new uploaded pics ....now ...in the old system doing this you could not recall the pics from the old file but it now looks like you can create a new empty file and put the new pics in there but still look at the old pics on the forum because the are still being pulled from the original file....just tried it and all seems fine...have a go...it can only help anyway.

Yes Tugmaster,

I posted my Esso Northumbria photos no problem last night, in fact they uploaded within seconds of clicking the post button.

This is now working better than ever for me.  I can upload text, a YouTube link and 3 larger sized photo files and it only take about 30 seconds to complete (knock on wood).  Good job.

Today - 3 photos - failed the security nonsence - tried two - posted, over the last 3-4 hours tried one more - waste of time - same error message.

Really frustrating.

This is a problem as it seems to be an intermittent fault. I have had no problem with pictures uploading very quickly. I just wonder if it is linked to individual internet speeds at certain times?

Once again...I'm only using the external hosting option, as posting pics directly, seems a 'hit-or-miss' issue again. :-X :-X

I have just made a new folder for all images to go into, we did this a while ago and it greatly improved loading of pictures.  Please also bear in mind that picture loading problems can also be due to upload/download speeds of your own pc.   This is why sometimes some members have problems and other do not.

Anyway, the new folder should certainly go along way to making things easier.

The new folder is something that happens in the background, nothing you need to change just load the pictures in the normal way.

Cheers
