So over the years I seem to have a lot of small photos posted in my posts-I always run into the limit (977 or maybe megabits or kbs or killowhatevers this is nerd territory not mine) and have to purge my photos from older posts.

I tend to start 10 pages back under manage my attachments but realize many still read and download these. So I choose the lesser downloaded ones and start purging.Can I really take the photos out of a million view post?

Now when someone looks up say how to build a display rack or wash shelves or tumble stack an electric or throw a spoon rest can these posts have no photos???

This really seems to cramp my style and is one of the pain in the butt areas for me on this board-I'm not a whiner but info post with no photos are just plain stupid.

I guess this is vent so folks I'm purging to keep the new photos coming alone-view them soon as they will be toast soon as well.

I'd add a photo but one has to go to do it. Maybe from now on I should talk one thru it without photos like the blind pilot landing a plane after the pilot died and they took over flying.

Not really sure what software they are using for this board but you always have the option to store your photos in an outside source. I use "Photobucket" myself and have for years. I know they have a limit on their sizes but it must be huge due to the fact that I have not hit the limit.


I think you can still show the images within the post as well.  Take the link from photobucket and copy it.. click on the image icon and the pic will show.




It is an extra step but.. it does work too..
