Best photo upload extension?

Post by Affin »

?
I Use postimage but the pictures are always on the leftside. It would have been better if they became more centered

So should be:

[center]{TEXT}[/center]

<div style="text-align:center">{TEXT}</div>

Not by default, they’re custom BBCodes you can add as and when you need them. See Knowledge Base - Adding Custom BBCodes in phpBB3

Want to switch from postimage to something better. Maybe to Imgur or something. What happens to all images uploaded to the image? Are they disappearing?

I strongly recommend Imgur.

We moved from postimage and have never looked back. My fear is that they will eventually ransom all of our thousands and thousands of image as ransom if we don't pay, but hey, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it, as imgur works so well for the time being.

imgbox and ImageBam were very reliable for almost 8 years without quirky terms of service. If you're interested I can post a long list of other hosters, along with their (dis)advantages, how long they exist and more.
And Imgur is a bad choice because it
  • has no thumbnails (so all you can post is text links)
  • doesn't preserve filenames
  • is not primarily a picture hoster but more like a social network
  • has TOS saying:
    • files can vanish at any time
    • manipulates pictures
    • doesn't want mass storage
    • PNG files over 5MB will be converted to JPEGs (quality loss)
    • Non-animated images over 1MB for anonymous uploads and 5MB for account holders will be lossily compressed (quality loss)
    • All non-animated images receive lossless compression (file manipulation)
    • Upload limit of 50 images per IP address per hour (good luck with that one)
  • The worst thing about censorship is ███████████

I'm very interested in other ones you recommend.
