I can imagine if pics works fine in yours countries you won't complain but IMO there should be policy on these boards for posting pictures only on globally reliable hosting services



Apparently not just me



I guess others poland users have similar problems.
It's not only in Poland, here in the Netherlands also very slow loading speed.
Waiting for 3 minutes already for 2 pictures.

Ok, right, same here now. They are loading at a snail speed. I can only see the top part of the pictures while writing this message.

From the posts above yours it looks like it depends on the moment (at least for uk and netherlands too). This time they loaded for me in about one minute. But still significantly slower than other two images from imgur. Well nevermind, harry chao promised to posts images on imgur from now on.

Imgur resamples jpg images and so decreases the visual quality.

Is it now? I didn't even noticed that. I guess that's still better to see any picture than no picture at all. If not, there are other reliable hosting site to chose from.

Pics always load fine here in the States

It seems that there are lots of materials staged on site now, can't wait to see the welding of supercolume starts.

Thats weird, it doesn't resize my pics. I take pics in CE3 at 2500x1600, then upload them, and it keeps them the same size and quality.

It may depend on what quality setting you are using in your pictures. I save them with my graphic editor and after uploading the image is usually reduced in size even if not going over the 2MB limit. Sometimes by much but sometimes just by a little bit. The problem is that quality is also affected. I emailed Imgur asking about that and got a reply that they are using 'loseless' image processing which 'does not' reduce quality but only eliminates unnecessary data. Then I replied them showing two images one of which was processed by Imgur with a noticeable loss in quality. I didn't get a reply which was the reason I stopped using it.

Huh, thats interesting, aren't there some other sites you could try like Image shack. By the way, when I said CE3, I am talking about Cryengine 3, the engine used for Crysis 2

There's min.us if you want free lossless image hosting. It's a lot slower though, so I only use it for huge pictures that I don't want resized. Imgur is the best even with the barely noticeable compression imo, easy to use, fast, and convenient
