Just managed this (nothing to do with railways) from my iphone so there must be a settings issue on my ipad which I'll check out.
Thanks for all the help

@port perran Check to see if your ipad is in "private browsing mode" ?

I have tried this morning with the following :-
Samsung Galaxy S8
Ipad Air
Iphone 6S
Iphone 5SE

all upload photos fine, complete with their links in a test thread, so I do think its related to your own particular devices setup Im afraid.

Good news PP. Glad it's sorted. :thumbsup:

Now, about these random photos :hmmm: - I think it is against Forum Rule #57a to post pretty landscapes or seascapes without full location details. ;)

Looking forward now to seeing future pics of your excellent layouts.  :)

Well, the camper is our own 72 VW Westfallia at the historic vehicle gathering at Powderham Castle near Exeter on Sat and Sunday.
The view is looking West from Charlestown towards the Roseland Peninsula last week in the hot sun.
The 800 is on a test run from North Pole Jct to Penzance two weeks ago. Taken at Redruth station. A mighty fine beast.

So what are the free alternatives? I am thinking of generally rather than just uploading photos here. Whilst welcome, I doubt Tank would appreciate me uploading non-railway related photos for me to link to other sites. ;)

Drop Box and Flikr both seem to charge if you want to link. Nothing like the extortionate amount Photobucket are demanding but not an expense I wish to foot for something that is just a hobby.
Well, that's just not good enough. Some fount of all knowledge you are!  :no:  ;)

This reminds me of the fotopic fiasco of a few years ago.  What is it with photo hosting sites?

Sooner or later they discover that the advertising revenue from free users does not cover their running costs. Users who link their photos to a site like this do not pop up adverts and hence generate no revenue. Hosting is low return but linking is zero return.

Sadly even on the internet, there is no such thing as a free lunch. :(

Do you get any free web space with your ISP?

I use my PlusNet space for stuff that doesn't get uploaded to a specific forum.  I've never bothered to check if there are any fancy hosting tools, I just upload using FTP and link directly to the file.

[edit]Actually, looking at my account I only get a paltry 100Mb, and that's only because I've had the same old package for several years. Current home broadband packages don't include any web space.[/edit]

Drop Box and Flikr both seem to charge if you want to link.

I use Flickr (though I pay something like £20/yr) but you can use it for free and hotlink provided you include a link back to the Flickr page - see their Community Guidelines:

"Flickr makes it possible to post content hosted on Flickr to other web sites. Pages on other web sites that display content hosted on flickr.com must provide a link from each photo or video back to its page on Flickr. "

Cheers, Mike
