Since photobucket shot themselves in the foot I have been looking at various hosting sites, but with my aged brain, nothing is particularly understandable. Guy, (big for two)suggested tapatalk which obviously works and which I installed on my phone, but there, for me was the end. How do I actually negotiate my way to uploading and then sharing photos to the site via tapatalk? If anyone has the time to set down step by step how I can do it, I would be eternally grateful, I have loads of photos to upload, many thanks chaps and sorry to be such an IT thicko, Rod.

I have gone into this Alan, but again I can't see the first step.

I've found using the in house image hosting works well, my only issue is the size limit is incredibly small I think 250kb if it was say 500kb it would be much better and far more attractive to use. I've found tap talk to be a bit of a pain and seems to work with varying success on different forums, ukpassats mobile adaption is spot on and works very well on Android.

Thanks for taking the time to reply caprixpac but again it's over my head. The figures mean nowt to me, Ionly wish I could understand all the present day jargon. To understand things, I still picture size in feet and inches, and weight in pounds ounces and stones, sad isn't it? Ha Ha!

I've been without my pc for a fortnight,(No it's not been at the police station!), and have not fancied trying Alan's method on a borrowed laptop. However I have it back now and if I get the chance to install my fmic tomorrow will take some pics and try to get them up. I'll be doing it as per Desertstorm, more or less to the letter. Rod.
