Hey folks, I think I've found the perfect solution for photo sharing. I'm about to purchase the license for the software, basically it will look and feel very similar to Photobucket but it will be hosted here on a subsite. I want to limit the photos to models and modelling related photos only (no not the naked lady type of models :P )
You can link the photos and embed them exactly as you used to be able to with Photobucket and I'm happy for you to use the links on other sites.
At present the hosting shouldn't be an issue but as the number of photos increase I may have to move it on to another platform which could increase the monthly cost of the servers that run this site. I think $10 per year would be enough to cover the costs as long as the uptake was enough, it will be free for the foreseeable future (but feel free to make donations from the link above) but I thought I'd gauge everyone's opinion on this, especially given the nature of the Photobucket blow up.

I am going to abstain from the vote. I am happy just uploading photos to here from my computer. I have not used my photobucket account for a couple of years and no longer see a need for me to use a photo sharing site, so it does not effect me.

Either or its no issue, it's only if you are going to share your photos on other sites and you don't want to link them to your threads.
Feel free to take a look here's the link
Part of the message is hidden for the guests. Please log in or register to see it.
it's hidden from non registered members.
The only stipulations are:
Please register with your KM usernames (just so I know who you are) non members will be removed, it's for KM members only.
Please stick to modelling related photos.
Try not to do loads of testing, it works, you don't need to as it just uses bandwidth ;)

I'll also be looking for some admins over the coming days. ;)
I've also got to change the logos to fit the main site, so don't stress.

Hi Gary,

I'd use the service 100% and I think $10.00 is very reasonable... I'd pay a but more for it. With PB folding the modelling world is feeling the loss. All the forums are moaning about it.

I've diversified to village photos and Flickr... But a more local alternative would be great.

Cheers

John

Good initiative Gary and thanks for taking the time make this facility available to KM followers. I support a user pays system and a modest charge (it costs more elsewhere).

I upload straight off my PC but if I ever feel I need to post images elsewhere, you've made it easy for all.

I don't mind, Reon's donation for selling kits paid for 1/3 of the license cost and from what I've seen of it, it's worth every cent. I've added 330 photos so far myself and will be adding a lot more from my build collections.
It's handy because I can link a whole album.

It's also a good place to backup all those model photos so you don't lose them ;)

Thanks mate, it's purely optional at present there is no need to pay to use the system and I don't at present see that there will be unless we get an influx of new members that want to use it and we end up chewing through Terabytes of data and bandwidth.

Setup account, easy
Upload photos, easy

Double thumbs up



Added bonus, unlike PhotoFu**et the images are not blocked by at work.
If only there was a way to link it to my phone (via app) that I use to take photos that would be perfect

The site browses real nice on my Galaxy S7, you can kind of link them. Just click the upload button and select the source, use Gallery or Camera at least that's how it is on my Android, can't speak for IOS phones.

No, but I am sure I'll get there eventually.
I have found trying to delete photos to be fustrating, the part to click on disappears very quickly....

To be honest I've not actually thought about how to do that. I created loads of albums and I'm not done yet lol, if I work it out I'll let you know.
My pleasure and thanks for the donation mate, every bit helps. :)

As a temporary fix for Photobucket while slowpokes like me get things moved over, heres an Chrome extension that fixes the broken Photobucket links and makes them visible again. Been really useful for other forums when looking around at builds for inspiration
