PostSubject: Image Hosting   16th April 2018, 6:07 am

Hello!

I've been around for a while, and I thought I knew how to host images, but apparently I don't, so I need some help.

I'm trying to host my Mars Admin Stamp so that I can put it into my gallery. I've tried Tinypic, Imgur, and Photobucket, and none of them are working. I just keep getting little blue squares with a question mark inside. 

Help? xD

You mean you cannot upload them to Imgur (which is pretty much the best option in my opinion), because it doesn't show up after you uploaded it? (like an "error" message?)

Had this issue already, but I think it might be something with the .gif-file? If animated graphics do not work in Imgur, I usually always use Abload.de, which is a german image uploader, but its ALWAYS doing it's work.

I unfortunately do not know any other oprion besides imgur :/

Could be the way you put in the code, too. Those sites tend to not give you the direct link to the image and instead gives you a link to their website where you can then see it. Make sure whatever code you're inputting ends in .png or .jpg or whatever the image file type is. IIRC Imgur has a direct BB Code link that you just need to copy-paste too.

^^^What Bubbles said. I have to use the BBcode Imgur provides because right click and copying the image location doesn't seem to work anymore. But all of my stamps and other forum stuff are hosted on imgur. I've also used the one that Forummotion is connected with, servimg.com



You can upload images using the first button on the left in that bar. Though, I'll note that I much prefer Imgur just because you can organize by albums and stuff. Servimg has like no organization that I can figure out. XD I only use it when I'm being lazy and don't feel like opening up imgur. lol

If you do use the servimg.com host through forummotion, you should just be aware that it will upload everything in JPEG format which makes it lose quality, so if someone sent you something nice to use like a sig, you probably want to host it elsewhere! ;D

Came in here to offer advice, and learned something instead. plus the issue was resolved before I got here.


I had no idea servimg makes them lose quality. Is that a recent thing, or has it been doing that all along? I've personally never noticed the difference.

It's been like that all along! I suspect it turns things into JPEG to save on space? I don't know for sure though.

I know when you upload it gives you options for resizing and you can at least tell it to not resize, but I never noticed that it automatically made everything jpegs, i guess with the exception of gifs. D:
