    Default Dropbox photo sharing

    Limited audience, I imagine but dropbox have completely changed their sharing system for photos now.

    I used to use dropbox and Googlephotos a lot for sharing bike related images, Flickr is now my tool of choice but I have quite a lot of stuff on this forum that simply does not display images anymore

    I have found a workaround but it means replacing image links one at a time which is very time consuming and swapping back and forwards to dropbox which I imagine very few users are going to do.

    I think the real reason behind all of this is get users to sign up to a paid account but I'm not dong that just to find out if the image linking is different!

    If anyone wishes to know...

    View the images (one at a time!) in the dropbox viewer, ignore any links on screen but right click on the image directly and get the image info and/or link, I've found this works here fine using the 'insert image' option but yes,

    only one link or image at a time - well, it was good for a while.

    Cheers

    I just noticed that Photobucket have placed a block on images as well at first I thought someone had hacked my account but just checked on the internet and apparently its a change of subscription terms http://uk.pcmag.com/webcom/90124/new...s-the-internet ...... ffs thats holding people to ransom, they are looking for a subscription of $399 per year.

    Image resizing...

    This one worked a treat:

    http://picresize.com/

    I use a windows app called Image resizer that I think comes with the powertoys pack, resizer was the only useful thing as it works directly from within Windows explorer.

    Net app works well.... for as long as its free!
