Method of Posting Pictures.
The ‘bucket” systems are a poor method of posting pictures; in fact the buckets are Stonehenge technology. I developed this system over several years, when I got frustrated with the “free” bucket systems.The unique method I use is depicted below.
This means one can send pictures over the internet via E mail or to forums by simply sending the URL. There is no space involved on the receiver or the forum resources. This method is simple, but takes a little personal application, and increases your knowledge considerably, particularly about software and the internet. I use some other refinements developed over time.
Buy Breezebrowser. This simple program formats the HTML pages and allows annotating the photos, and is an excellent program for filing pictures. I file by year, month and day and some mnemonic file name. This is one of my favorite picture handling programs. http://www.breezesys.com/
Get a web host. This costs about seven dollars a month and stores all your pictures. I use Midphase. Here is the purchase site. http://www.midphase.com/
Get an FTP program. There are many but I use WS FTP Pro. Firefox has a built in FTP plug in for FTP. WS FTP purchase site. http://www.gabn.net/junodj/ws_ftp.htm
To shorten the URL’s use notlong.com, until you desire a better system, which is not essential but convenient. http://notlong.com/
This is what your postings will look like. You simply post the shortened URL. The recipient receives pictures that download quickly and are a pleasure to view.
