Where do 'hosted images' go once you load them?

Post by egschade on Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:26 pm

Does anyone know what happens once you upload an image? 1) I'd like to know how to delete old ones and 2) how to get the URL to use in other places.

Apparently they go to a site called 'Serving.com' which is a free image hosting service.  Terms of service are the standard stuff, no porn, no copyrighted items, etc and an assumption that they're not responsible if someone gets your images.  I couldn't find any way on the sight to retrieve the URL of the picture or to even view the picture. I assume the picture is stored under a Forumotion account.
You could go on the post where you put the picture and right click it and select 'copy image address' to get the URL.

Photobucket.com is the way to go (it's free), it gets a little slow sometimes but you have an account and you can store your images, and access them wherever you want.

Thanks for looking into this Harry. I have a Verizon Cloud account that holds 10 gig so I may start putting my more public photos there
