I am testing different sites over the next hour and will post the links here if they are found to be viable with the forum software...

http://www.freepichosting.com/

Small site but easy to sign up for and use...

http://www.internethoster.com/

Not a currently viable site but an interesting story nonetheless...another small free site bites the dust and why...

http://shutterfly.homestead.com/account/userhome.jsp

If any of you can get some pix uploaded on Homestead, let me know.....it's been a frustrating experience...*G* Once figured out, it might be viable....I think they lean towards the Wintel world...

I uploaded a sample file from my hard drive (my sig thumbnail) using both IE 5.0 and iCab and the pix loaded on the site and displayed (with the copied and pasted text from the site) in roughly 5 minutes including signup...much faster and easier to use than Photopoint...

Explain your difficulties and platform please...

I take it that you've had the same problems as Drew with this site...

I don't see anything in the TOS that would lead the site owner to block our pix...in fact he mentions linking to message boards as one of the uses of the site....

Please clarify....

Wow, secrecy and all....gee whiz...*G*

My mistake for not completely saving my pix to a gallery...the system purged them after I exited the site...

FWIW, I have an ISP and host my business site there...I'm doing this as a public service (the same as I do for everything else on the VMF) for folks who don't have a place to store their pix...

My customers pay me quite handsomely for my efforts which allows me to do it here for free...

Since there is a as yet unnamed solution to all this, I'll spend my time on more productive things...

I just tried something different with Photopoint and this seems to work.

1) Save your pic to an album.
2) Open the album and click on the thumbnail of the pic you want to use. This will bring up the larger version.
3) Right-click on the large version of the pic and select "Open Link In New Window"
4) Copy the URL from the address line in your browser...it should contain something like "Sequence=0&res=high" at the end
5) Paste this link in your sig with the "/image....jpg" etc.

I myself am using www.honesty.com. As long as you keep your total storage at or under 3MB (about 50-60 pics) it's free.

Every day is a holiday if you love your job.
