On September 16, 2019, TinyPic.com will go offline.  If you have an account with them, go login and download your images before the 16th.

 

TinyPic has already stopped serving images to other websites, so you may see this sad-face image here on the forum:

goodbye

 

 

Popular alternatives include: Postimage.org and Imgur.

Or better yet, host the images on a domain you yourself control. It's just a matter of time before your chosen service goes offline too (or goes pay only... ImageShack ... Photobucket).

 

Oh, and bye the way, TinyPic is owned by Photobucket.

Luckily I didn't have anything on TinyPic, but thanks for the information. 

 

I notice that Photobucket have a more reasonable price now, only $4.99/month. I joined, but see that they plaster their name over the image, so I will be cancelling asap!

Robbing bar stewards. They want $6.99 a month off me.  10% reduction for taking out an annual plan.

 

I'll give it a swerve and hope postimage survives for a while.

 

IT costs are getting ridiculous.  Mobile phones x 3/  Spotify/ Netflix /  Broadband & Satellite TV package/  BT Sports ... I'd be £2000 a year better off without Technology

 

Maybe the wrong place to ask (I'll delete if you want T_ H)

 

... but what do people around the world pay for Broadband ?  

I pay £44 a month for Sky TV which includes Satellite telly, Fibre Unlimited Broadband and includes £18 line rental and VAT

You have a better deal @welshblue on your Broadband.  We pay $106 a month for TV/Cable, phones and Broadband.  We miss Sky TV - they were much more reasonable and a better quality of service IMHO :)

My cell phone (iPhone 6S+, unlimited data/text/talk/etc. AT&T) is $91

Internet (most basic plan, 12Mbps/1Mbps AT&T) $52

For ~$6.00 per month you can get a domain name, email accounts, and ~15 GB of file storage and you can then store and host your own images. That is what I have done for years. One month of web hosting for the price of a fast food meal, and its better for the waist line! 🙂

 

BTW:

I just found out moments ago, that as a subscriber to Amazon Prime, I get unlimited storage of my images. I just opened my free account and created a folder to which I loaded some test images. I was able to copy the image location and paste it into a different browser and view the image. This opens up other possibilities for image sharing and posting.

I too am an Amazon Prime member, does this storage include everything, or just images? I guess I should look into it..

I'm pretty cheap in tech stuff. My internet (50Mbps/25Mbps) is $45 per month. My cell phone (Android) costs me about $100 per year, as I use tracfone.

 

My main PC desktop (i7) is 8 years old and I only paid $500 for it. My Laptop (i3) is 10 years old. I run Linux on everything and is obviously free.

Back on topic ... I was thinking of using Google Photos as a hosting site (unlikely to start charging ?) ... but as far as I can tell you can't generate thumbnail links 🙄

Shame, because I like the layout

It's amazing how prices vary.  I pay £25 a month for my wife's 6S+ ... admittedly  only 10Gb of data but she piggybacks and a lot of it rolls over

 

Pricing is something I can't get my head around.  My kids have just upgraded to the S10 + ... it would cost £170 for both from the actual service provider but I pay £84 a month for both from a third party site.  With £480 cashback after 2 years.  Same network.  I don't get it

It wasn't always like that.  I was stupidly loyal to BT for Broadband for years ... too stupidly loyal to save £600 a year 😫 

Worst thing is, there's no down time with Sky ... where there was with BT ... exactly the same exchange and cables ???

I pay £34 per month for mobile, Galaxy S10 (26GB / unlimited calls & Text) and £36 per month for broadband (200GB)  i no longer have sky / bt or any other subscription service due to rip off prices.

 

@welshblue I'm not 100% sure, but goggle photos lets you share images / generate links, you just need to make a new album (Though I haven't tried it)

Hey Drew'

 

Unfortunately it only generates a link to the full size image ... the last thing I need is EER kicking my < no swearing > for posting big images

I have been using postimg.org for several months now.  As for my internet option, I am a customer of a WAN broadband provider and I absolutely love it.
