    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    As of July 2nd. www.zing.com will cease to exist. The places to store pictures so we can post them here are diminishing. I have used Zing for all my pictures posted here so will be looking for an alternative.
    Any suggestions?

    Matthyro,

    I tried last month to find somewhere FREE to put pics, and it was not that succesful. There is a spot at Geocities i set up for general use.
    http://www.the-gauge.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000147.html gives details, easy to use, however it was quirky as to when/if it worked. Doesn't your ISP provide you with 10MEG (or so) free webspace?

    TOOT!

    My web site is hosted by NBCI. They allow 100mg of storage space free which is very generous. The only problem is you can do a direct link to a picture there from the Gauge like you can with Zing or Photopoint. Places like NBCI and others will not allow it.
    You can have an indirect link which works OK but the picture doesn't show up until you click on the link

    Hi Shamus, I see that trainorders.com only allows 3mg of storage space. My web site takes 12 mg. so I guess I am out of luck

    It is no longer a free site, but PhotoPoint is still the best one for me. I don't do auctions, but there are web sites and individuals with interests other than railroading who link to my pictures.

    I did check out several other sites and found everyone to fall short of meeting my needs. Many were too slow or too difficult to navigate.

    Matthyro,

    I got around that prob by using geocities. Geocities is fine to be "linked to" particular pages or sets of pages of your website. I have all my webmovies on geocities and just have a "heading page" at geocities that lists the movies, then a "return" to my homepage. I just have a "click here for webmovies" and the link is to geocities. Makes it quite transparent really. Just keep your "mainline" of your webpage at trainorders, and the "bulk/sections" at geocities. e.g. your "menu" pages "me, layout details, pics" etc is on your webserver, each section in on geocities, with a "link" back to your homepage on the other server.

    TOOT!
