Postimage.org
« on: 18:27:25, 09/01/19 »
Images I post on the forum using Postimage.org are a bit too large.

When I upload a photo to Postimage the results show a number of different links.
I've tried "Hotlink for forums" and that doesn't seem to work for me.
Only the second one, "Direct link", works for me.

Can anyone say for certain which link should be used, or maybe point to an equally simple but better site?

Direct Link sounds correct to me - that is what I use on imgbb.com


To reduce the image size to something suitable for posting on this forum, I open the image in Paint, re-size to 800x600 pixels, then save as a different name ready for upload.


800x600 come out this size:

Thank you Richard. I'll try that next time, resize then upload it to the online image site.
Beautiful photo by the way.

I joined postimage but it seems clunky.
