I wish we could load pictures directly to HPA. Photo-bucket is slow, has tons of pop-ups and questionable advertising, and is often down.
On other outdoor sites I visit, I can just browse the photos on my computer or phone and load them directly to the site once they are properly down-sized. It's a great feature. I don't know if that is available with this format?
I agree. I no longer post pics to this site that weren't already stored in my photobucket account and I no longer add new pics to photobucket.
A properly sized upload from your computer (or phone) direct to a site takes a few seconds vs. several minutes using photobucket. That's if it's working, virus free and moving faster than a snail's pace that day.
I've had similar, negative experiences with other photo-hosting sites too. It just isn't worth the hassle when the technology exists to eliminate that unnecessary step.
Thanks for posting this subject guys . I used to be a very active pic poster on other sites . HPA is my favorite site , but I refuse to go through the PhotoBucket hassle to post pics here . Sure wish they would switch to a Copy & Paste type setup here .
