Hi All,

Does Photoshop no longer work for hosting images? Which image hosting site would you recommend?

Thanks!
John

To upload your images to LumberJocks, simply click on the “img” button and the click “chose file”.

Browse to the image on your computer then click to select it and click “open”.

Once it has uploaded make sure to click to “Insert this image”.

It will then add the code to your content. Simply add what you want to say.

Uploading to LJ’s doesn’t fill the area as well. Plus it has issues with rotation not being correct. Until the rotation issue is fixed, I don’t upload much here unless I have to.

I use Flickr personally.

I’ve uploaded probably hundreds of photos using the native LJ image upload and every one was oriented correctly. Some members have figured out the problem and posted instructions on how to prevent the sideways shot, so any photos that aren’t upright are due to user error.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with other hosting sites like Flickr though. If you’ve already uploaded it once, why do it again here?

Workarounds don’t work when you are only using your phone. If I’m using my phone, I’m not going through the double effort of putting it on my computer, then rotating on the computer, and then uploading.

It’s a bad site problem. You shouldn’t have to do the workaround.

I’m not going to argue with you on that. I’ve said before that the site should use the available EXIF data for orientation when photos are uploaded. I guess I lost track of the fact that the fixes members provide involve uploading to their computer first. It’s still no excuse for not doing the workaround and posting a sideways shot.

My workflow involves Lightroom for tonal adjustments, cropping, etc. Even if I took it with my phone, Lightroom Mobile passes it seamlessly to Lightroom, and from there I export it and post it here.

Do not take pictures with your phone in portrait mode ever and you should be OK.

The problem is taking photos landscape orientation, not portrait.

External hosting sites suck… and, as experienced with Photobucket, can go away – leaving the possibility of your pictures going away on this site (and any others where you have linked pictures) in the future. Holding your phone correctly to take a picture doesn’t seem like too much effort to keep them from going sideways.

Cheers,
Brad
