TORn Image Posting Guide

Image Hosting Sites


Where can I put my image?

Where can I EDIT my image?

From Wikipedia: An image hosting service allows individuals to upload images to an Internet website. The image host will then store the image onto its server, and show the individual different types of code to allow others to view that image.

Sometimes you can upload your image onto TORn's server and TORn will host it for you. But sometimes you need to find a home on the web for your image to sit outside of TORn. This is explained in each section's directions on how to upload/post your image.

It is not acceptable to display an image on TORn that is sitting on a site that does not belong to you (hotlinking images). So, if you want to display certain types of images and you don't have your own website, you can use an image hosting site.

There are free ones you don't have to pay for. But you should make sure that the site you chose allows you to display your image on a remote site... in this case, the remote site will be TORn. I really don't know much about these sites since I've never had to use them. But some that I've heard of are:

These sites may offer editing capabilities as well but unless they let you adjust file quality (KB size), they probably won't work for TORn usage. Photobucket does not have this capability.

This short list should not be taken as an endorsement either by me or TORn. You can search for "image hosting" or "free image hosting" and investigate sites on your own. Or you can post on Feedback to see if other people at TORn have suggestions.

I mean your personal website or your album at a Image Hosting site or a site where you have permission from the owner to link to their images.
