Q: simplest way to put photos on internet for TR
« on: 07/05/17, 11:48 AM »

I don't have an internet photo service right now. Is there an easy way to upload them somewhere (doesn't matter where) to link into TR? Like Cascade climbers has a gallery?
Lot's of TR's not happening with photos, mine included, which is a shame.

I use imgur.com

They have a quality mobile app as well as a simple web interface. No account required

I'll have to try imgur. I've been using photobucket, but the functionality of that site has gotten horrible. I tried using google photos, but I couldn't figure out how.

I use to use Picasa, but it became gobbled up by Google, it may still exist but I'm not sure. I now use Google but it is clunky process, that I really do not like. I have noticed people not adding pictures, I suspect it is because it is such a pain to accomplish. I would love to hear about a better mousetrap, as well. I will try imgru.

Indeed not posting pictures anymore as cannot upload from computer directly and TAY requires the image to be on the web already.

I just gave imgur a try.

Piece of cake! I recommend it.

Looks like the July TR section doesn't have photo upload enabled. I think this happens at the turn of some months if a mod hasn't ticked a box to enable it.

Mosetick -- can we script/cron this so it doesn't happen again?

Thanks!

I wrote a script that automatically resizes and compresses photos to be within the TAY limits. It also adds a random string to the name to avoid name collisions. It's in an old post of mine that you can either search for or I can reupload. It should be easy for the webadmin to be able to use this to allow TAY to accept any size photos.

Hi Charlie, can you try again now for the July board?

Also, for everyone else out there, Google Photos, https://photos.google.com (web, iOS, Android) might be the best free way to upload photos to embed on TAY or elsewhere now a days. It automatically backs up photos from smartphones. (when you open the app on WiFi) Which is a handy feature. Easy to create a private album to share with friends or public album to share to a wider audience.

As of July 6, Photobucket has changed their policy such that third party hosting is available only to paying members. So pictures on all my previous trip reports that reference photos hosted on photobucket, now show only an "upgrade now" icon. How disappointing.

This is what it looks like:
We skinned the lower bit and transitioned to crampons and axe for the steeper upper part

Photo upload now appears to be enabled for both July and August TRs. Thank you!

Mikerolfs photobucket difficulty highlights the need for direct uploads to TAY. If TAY is the photo host, as long as TAY exists, TRs will have images. They're extremely useful when planning trips, and will have increasing use when negotiating access issues in the future. To say that "backcountry skiers have been skiing location X for more than two decades, look here's a photo!" is powerful.

Thanks again!

As demonstrated at the Turns-All-Year meetup on August 3rd, Ben and I are getting ready to roll-out a new trip report "post photo function" for the existing web site that will make it dead simple to include photos in a post here.

What that means is that Turns-All-Year will be hosting the photos, so they can theoretically exist forever. They will be taking up space that cost the TAY community, that means YOU, or future TAY web site sponsors actual money.

The other good news is that we are reusing the photo upload functionality from the new web site for what I described above, so it will look familiar when the new web site is rolled out.

During the trial period of the photo hosting project, we will be looking at the operating costs, and seeing if we can make this sustainable for the community and sponsors to cover.

Stay tuned for future updates regarding Patreon membership or similar!† Cheesy

Try flikr.com.† I've been using it for years personally and for my website storage.  There is also an app you can download for your phone to send them to your flikr account.
