One of Aussie's questions I was interested in, whether other people can view your pics. I believe the 8 billion or so pics are all searchable? So if you have a picture of a widget and someone searches for widgets and your pic comes up and he/she could link to it right? So your pics become public domain?
Not a problem as far as our forum use, but any photos you don't want showing up anywhere on the internet.....
Are there security settings to prevent searching/linking by others?

I'm not real sure as this is has not been an issue for me... Under account options there are three settings that I believe will address this. 1st there is the Public/Private option. I have Allow Checked for copy & see location. I don't know what effect not having them checked will have. I would test but I don't want to screw up the hundreds of photo links I have made.

My album is Public/Private

Allow others to copy my media
Allow others to see image location

you can lock it, so no other than the picture liked to can be viewed by others. If you post a picture instead of a link, you wont have the problem at all..   If you don`t choose the private option everyone can see everything in the account.

 :dunno: Seems like Dutch's explanation then could be just another source for scamers to show pics of cars even throughout restoration and post them on some web site for sale? Not they will be successful or even get away with it but it seems to open a door of opportunity for these low lifes.

I'll conduct an experiment.... I just created a new photobucket account named bethb58. All of the security features are set to private & no share. I have uploaded several photos.   One I titled FINDTHISCUDA .. Below is a pic posted from that account. See if you can find other images on the account.

The same could be said for all the pictures uploaded here

 :dunno: I'm not sure, I was under the impression that unless you were a member here you could not upload pics. In otherwords guest could only access for reading/information purposes, could see the pics but could not do anything with them. I must have been wrong. Along with that thought was the fact guest also cannot make any post here.?

Now guests have the same viewing priveledges. The end result could be some guests will stay anonymous from joining the forum now they can see pics we put up with Photobucket etc.

I realize at 50 years old or there about most of us don't want to learn any more technology than we have to to get by BUT if you have managed to take a digital photo, uploaded it to your computer, opened it & down sized it, then uploaded it here you have done more than it takes to upload a photo to a photo hosting service such as http://photobucket.com/.  Even my 72 year old Mother can use photobucket. 

So do this site & it's administrator a favor & host your photos off site so the UPLOADER FULL problem can be minimized.


Thanks

I have had a photobucket account for a while, but since I started using Firefox I can't ever get photobucket to log into my account, says my password is incorrect or something. :banghead:
Yet it opens no problem with Internet explorer.  So if I want to post a picture using Photobucket I have to open another browser using IE, upload pictures, then I can go back on c-c.com, and finally make my post with links to my pictures.
It takes way too much time and trouble, I spend way too much of my life online when I should be doing other things anyway.  So when posting I spend a few seconds uploading pictures or decide it is more trouble than it is worth if I have to go through the lengthy photobucket routine using IE!  Sorry! :dunno:

I started using Firefox several months ago when IE was giving me fits & Photobucket worked fine until I did an upgrade to 3.5.3, then it was like I could not get past the logon  screen...then I found a add-on that Firefox offers called ABP. Add Blocker Plus...All works well now.

The alternative is that we all see

I just tried that, but then I couldn't log into Photobucket using either Firefox or IE.  But then I did their password reset and I was able to get into PB on Firefox! Thanks.  :thumbsup:

Now if I could figure out why I can't log into cuda-Challenger.com except on my home PC life would really be good!  :1zhelp:
