Hi guys.

I'm over the 500 limit on Imageshack as well. I used it for my BK historical thread over at SSL ...

I want to keep the pics available there ... what to do ?
File dropper seems to be hit and miss for me as well - I've used it for files that aren't images ...

I would like to find a hosting site for image and other files that works, is at least semi-permanent, and is free.

Any suggestions ?


Ray.

yeah right... "picture not available" thats the message you can see from tinypic quite annoyingly often. Imageshack might be not perfect but if you looked for archival pictures you would bet they keep them online the longest. Pity they limit their services, but oh well no-thing's for free I guess... I'm not sure if there is other hosting site like imageshack. Usually picture availability depends on the users who posted them on most of the sites.

Thanks for the list of jpgs. I'm new to this forum, I can't believe it exists! I'm from Chicago, the birthplace of the skyscraper, and I know that I'm going to just love perusing the threads here!!

Quick question re construction work in the Middle East in particular. I've heard that a lot of construction has ground to a halt due to the economy, and that a lot of workers in Dubai especially have not been paid. Any truth to those rumors? Also, I've heard that you can tell when a local economy is going to tank, it's when they start planning and building really tall buildings - sort of a weird leading economic indicator. Do you think this is true for Dubai? Thanks. John Karavitis

You can send them an email and download all of your pics before the deleting (1st of March).
As they have sent me a rude email I decided to leave that side and will delete my account as well.

Maybe the tinypic will do thye same one day , who knows..

Picasa or Flickr better option , pro accounts not expensive there.

Have you guys ever considered Smugmug? Not sure how well it works in the rest of the world but seems just fine here in the US. Don't doubt they serve worldwide or anything though. The lowest tier account is $40/year but unlimited is unlimited.

I currently have about 810GB of working data there and another 40,000 shots archived of misc stuff (part of 130,000 photos uploaded so far). They've yet to say anything.

http://www.smugmug.com/

Otherwise a Flickr or such may work best. Imageshack loads so many cookies, popups, and crap just to view a single photo full size that it's annoying at best and is garbage.
