  • Image hosting

    Posted by Ralf Goergens on July 16th, 2004 (All posts by )

    I now set up my own website so I can host images from there. Jonathan offered to host my images via Chicagoboyz, but I don’t want to hog the space when my ISP offers some for free anyway. I tried the Yahoo photo service and Geocities first, for they are free too and don’t require the use of FTP programs, but they cut way down on the image size and don’t let you directly link to your images.

    Update: I replaced the original one for a smaller image. Sorry about the inconvenience.

      Ralf, did you really mean to put a 4 MB image there? The broadband-challenged might be irritated. Anyway, I recommend ‘Gallery’ (, a free application written with PHP. It’s pretty cool, and automatically resizes your images for you, so visitors can browse thumbnails and then drill down to larger (or originally sized) version of your photos, if they like.

    2. Ralf Goergens Says:

      Good point on the size, thanks. I exchanged it for another image with 50kb.

      I’ll take a look at Gallery, Dan.

      Well, I keep in shape and lick my pelt all the time.

      Does that dog have a skeleton?

      I’m not sure. She can do the most amazing contortions. At the very least her spine seems to be made out of rubber. :)

      Check out as well. Good stuff there. Love the pic. Here’s a cat one to help out. ;-)

      (Just consider that poker face …. who’d guess she(?) was only holding a pair of treys …)

      Scotch Drinker,

      I’ll take a look at ExposureManager, thanks.
      And that’s a nice kitty you got there.

      Grean Bear,

      if you trust her just for one moment she’ll take you for all you are worth. I’ve seen it before. :)
