I've just given myself a quick lesson on screen-grabbing so apologies for the huge windows, here goes!

Sign-up to PostImage for free, don't worry, the ads go when you register.
Once signed in you're here;

click on choose images for this;

You'll then get here if you select one pic, yes I've started using thumbs - learning all the time!
Click the save button at the end of the row, thumbnail for forums as above, or hotlink for forums for full pics.

Works the same for batch test (well two)!

There seems to be a few ways of doing things so there may well be easier processes for more experienced users.
I'm quite impressed in the short time I've used it :thumb

I have found on the "mobile" version, it only allows me to upload one picture at a time. (I use an android phone)

But for me this is okay.
I can see it being a bit frustrating for some.

PC version is a lot more flexible and allows batch uploads. At least it does on Win 10.

Same as pc version, but there is no option to upload more than one image at a time.

So it can make uploading several images a slow and laborious job

Works for me though :)

I also use wifi due to potential data usage.
And for forum speed, I reduce my output image size to 480 x 640 pixels.

This might sound silly but how do i get it from postimage to the forum. I have never done this before

Hi

pic 3 as above.. click the chosen square button at end of the appropriate link (hotlinks or thumbnails for forums)- this copies the link.

I've looked on the Google play store but can't find it?
Did a bit of a search - it's only Windows?

Just testing, I see there is a Windows app so thought there was an android version.

Yup - that appears to be working.

Just as a point of courtesy to postimages.
They do like you to mention them every now and then as a sort of thank-you for hosting your pictures.
So you may see a few of my posts mentioning them after the last image in any particular post.
(I don't think you need to go manic and mention them in every thread). :)

It is in the terms and conditions at sign up.

Not buried in the usual blurb.
I managed to read their statement when I signed up a few months ago.

I find it much easier than Photobucket, both in the app and online.

Postimages is an absolute joy compared to the hassles I used to have with P.B. :wall
