I have my answer, I have a more than a year to start over, first I need a host site that gives 3rd Party Hosting , suggestions welcome , or should I just forget all about it and delete all my shots
If I use a new host site, I intend to delete all my shots from PB, stuff them


Hello Norman,
Based on our Terms of Use, as a valued Plus member you will continue to have 3rd Party Hosting capabilities until December 31, 2018 with your current Plus subscription as long as you maintain your account.
After December 31, 2018 we ask that you please upgrade your account to the Plus 500 subscription plan. If you upgrade your account to our Plus 500 subscription before that date, please email us at plus@photobucket.com so that we can ensure uninterrupted 3rd Party Hosting capabilities.
We hope this helps clarify. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
Thank you,

That look's like a good deal, $26 or a TB for nothing
Can I load more than one shot at a time?
Are my shots up for public viewing, if so can I make them private? not that its an issue
I may well join up for the free bit and see how it all works, thanks
I have had a  look at a few sites and blow me if one wasn't linked to Photobucket

You can upload as many as you like at a time. When I was uploading the UG Collection pics to Flickr I did 100-odd at a time.
Worked no problemo.

You can create 'Albums' - then set the album to be private or public. You can still hotlink to a private album, but set the album
to be private or public BEFORE you hotlink to the images, because changing the album setting AFTER this alters the hotlink address.

At least that's what I found when uploading the UG Collection pictures.

You need to click on the arrow on the image page to Share.



A window pops up, go to the BBcode tab, and copy and paste the info given there. Make sure the size of the image is the one you want.




The Flickr copy & paste link gives you a host of stuff you dont really need. I like to trim it down from this:
Code:

[img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4315/35792061020_2f35648c38_o.jpg[/img]

[url=https://flic.kr/p/WwPELm]flickr image 02[/url] by [url=https://www.flickr.com/photos/147137998@N02/]Urban Glasgow[/url], on Flickr

to this:
Code:

[img]https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4315/35792061020_2f35648c38_o.jpg[/img]

You only need the bit in the [img] tags.

Looks like you've got the hang of it alright.

I think you can "upload" your images direct to Flickr from your PB account by putting in the direct PB link, but then if you've already
got the same sized images on your computer it's probably quicker uploading them direct from your PC to Flickr.


A pain in the arse, to be sure.

Hi james, I will get the hang of it, a bit more footery having to delete some of the info contained in the shots but no doubt it will get easier
Regards the old stuff, I will load from my files a wee bit at a time, hopefully I can do all that before February when I am an due to pay another $50
I will probably start withe the districts that have fewer shots, that way it looks like I am getting through it,leave the big files till last
Scorched earth policy re PB, I will, if I have time delete all my Glasgow stuff
Thanks for your help

Don't worry about that part initially. You can always go back and delete that info later. That suggestion was just me & my mild-OCD kickin in.
I'd focus on replacing the Photobucket images first.

If you have the files in separate folders  (Location) on your computer Norrie you can upload the entire folders via the upload button rather than selecting individual images to upload. Flickr also has an upload tool called uploadr that streamlines your workflow for future uploads. It can also upload entire folders and keep thier structure.
