Old posts without photos

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Old posts without photos

Post by Wandering Daisy » Sun Nov 10, 2019 9:44 am

I initially linked my trip report photos to Phtobucket. After their extortionist policy about 4 years ago, I dumped them and they dumped my links. There are too many to go back and insert all photos again. But, if you have a particular report that you would like photos re-introduced, send me a PM and I will update it. I just did this with my Corridor Pass post.

I think that they got rid of that policy a few months ago. I too had my older reports linked up to photobucket and when they started their heavy handed policy, I stopped using them totally. However, I've gone back to look at some of my older posts where the photobucket link was broken and they appear to be restored with a huge watermark saying "proudly hosted by photobucket" or some such nonsense. Perhaps they realized their mistake and backtracked on their decision, I have no idea. Maybe go back to some of your old posts and see if they have the links to the photos again.

Here's an example: http://www.highsierratopix.com/communit ... =6&t=12952 This one the photos are kind of blurry, but I've seen others when they aren't.

Dave, your pictures are not showing on my computer but I'm at work and many sites are blocked by firewalls.

As for the Photobucket pictures that are blocked there is a hack out there that allows you to still see them once it's downloaded to your computer. It was posted last year on another site and worked perfectly on my home computer. I got it from the admin at the Fly Fishing Addicts site who I know so I felt confident about using it. I'll see if I can find it again.
