Image hosting questions

Post by Henryj » Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:20 am

Old guy stuff:

First, is there a way to bulk delete my images from photobucket, or do I have to do them all one by one?

And, does anyone have experience with Flikr?
If someone tells you "There's no such thing as a stupid question", have him list a watch for sale on WUS.

if you have your photos in folders (watch, beach, etc) you can delete the folder and all photos within the folder at one time

no experience with flickr, but I moved over to imgbb.com when I quit photobucket and have been pleased

Flickr is pretty good, but is geared more towards photographers who want to share their work in their Flickr stream rather than on forums. It makes grabbing direct links to the photos more difficult than something like imgur.

I use Google Photos for phone pics. It works well with Tapatalk. Flickr for everything else. Once I select the size I want, I right click on it for the link. Plenty of free storage on both with no f***ing pop up ads.

Dang. I tried google photos on my phone. I could never get links to work on here. Maybe I’ll try again.

Yeah, Google photos doesn't allow public linking in general. There are some weird workarounds, but no easy way.

Google Photos works great for me with the Chrome mobile browser. I saved all my PB folders over to Google Photos, and have no issues with posting links. The “workaround” is just adding “-tmp.jpg” to the end of the image URL when you copy/paste. That’s all. :salute:

BTW, you can set up the Flickr app to automatically store your phone pics the same way Google Photos does. Flickr makes it a little easier than Google to share or link to photos.

I tried deleting my Photobucket photos before I closed my account, but they didn’t delete. Apparently once uploaded they belong to Photobucket. I recall a discussion on this a while back.

I did that too, but when I went back in the photos were still present, without folders. When I tried to delete, it said I didn’t have permission.

Never mind, got it figured out.

Not looking to delete, just want to copy.

Is there a way to copy pictures in bulk?

There is a pretty easy way to do that:

https://gist.github.com/philipjewell/a9 ... 5b06deb13d

I have tried it and can confirm that it works.

If you don't have bash natively in your OS (i.e. running Windows), install Cygwin to get it. During installation make sure to add "curl" to the packages to install - this is the only additional package you need to copy files from PB.
