I have just had a message come up advising that 'Tiny Pics will be closing their site in 2019'

TinyPic is shutting down in 2019
 
 TinyPic is shutting down its image hosting service because we can no longer support a free service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site ad revenues. 
 While you may continue to host images from our site until further notice, we encourage you to consider selecting one of the premium plans offered by our sister site,
Photobucket
 Thanks for using TinyPic for your hosting needs over the years. We apologize that we can no longer continue providing this service, but Photobucket is a great option going forward.

If you wish to continue posting images to the site, but you don't want to have to pay to reduce the size of your images, you can always invest in a cheap photo editing programme which will reduce the size of your image to whatever you want. Or there are plenty of free one that can be found on the web, and windows 10 has photo editing facilities built into it.


Just remember you can't post a photo larger than  80kb and the total of images (no more than 5) can total no more than 192kb. If you have problems just outline your problem here and either Roy, Chris or myself will try to assist you.

I wouldn't recommend Photobucket.  I don't know what their premium service is like having not wanted to pay to use my own photographs, but I'll give it a miss based on the standard of their 'free' service.

As Phil says, there are plenty of editing programmes out there to chose from.

Didn't Photobucket shut down not long ago and many forums lost thousands of photos?
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

Just go on Google and type in "free photo editing" just make sure your anti virus considers it safe before you download it.

As I said previously there are plenty of online resizing and editing sites that can be searched for and used, its just a matter of resizing any image to the required size and then uploading them to the forum by following the instructions given.
