Can’t view some pictures

Postby fourshipp » Sat Dec 30, 2017 11:15 am

On some threads instead of the posted picture I get a graphic that says please update your account to enable third party hosting.

S this a problem with my account settings or the OP’s settings?

Thanks.

Those are most likely the pictures from "Photobucket" that many of us used.
A while back they changed their terms of service & held everybody's photos for "ransom"
You had to ante up a good chunk of change before they would allow the pictures to be shared.
Most of us didn't & started over with different photo hosting sites. :mad: :mad:

If you need a safe place to store your Slot car photos, just let me know. I’ll send you a link for HRW.

No, no costs, fees, watermarks that look horrible. Pretty easy to use.

I believe that there is an app that will let you see those pictures if you have a smartphone or tablet. I am now using Imgur to host pictures. Here is how I use that: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Qj7HKR ... sp=sharing
