I too would be happy to pay a little more for this site to host my Chevy-related photos.

A tiered approach would be nice, allowing us to pay for the amount of storage we use.

Cheers, Dean

Although I agree with what has been said concerning the disappointment with all the dead pic links, exactly why can't folks post pics to this site now? I do, Rustohlic does as do others. Why can't folks just post pics to the Member photos or Member projects? What am I missing?

At one point there was talk that having the club host thousands of photos would require the purchase of much bigger hard drives, etc. For the club, it's cheaper if our photos are hosted somewhere else. As for using the members area photos, I'd want the photos to show up in the posts I make, not off to the side in another thread. Overtime I try to upload a photo to it, I'm told my photo is the wrong size... and I'm looking for a single step process to match my single step knowledge of computers. (I've been totally faking my "expertise" in the area of computers if you haven't guessed!)

Now, I have no idea about the financials of multi million dollar international companies... but I do think it's shady business when a company advertises it's "free" package to the public, while rolling up a lion's share of profit, and then uses the same public's photos as hostages in order to demand payment to release the photos again.

I would understand if they Grandfathered it in, and told me that any future photos I add after a certain date would have to be paid for...I might have even considered a membership at a reasonable rate. Then myself, you, and our VCCA community wouldn't be being held hostage by Photobucket. At this point I'll find any other option rather than deal with them again.


Those accustomed to the finest...find it in Chevrolet.

As Rod pointed out, with the new server software you can attach photos (files) inline to a post and the picture appears in the post.

Also, the upload software automagically resizes the photo for you. Happy happy! carbana

Thanks Peter!
