Your input please: Image sharing on the Daily PaulSubmitted by Michael Nystrom on Mon, 01/24/2011 - 18:37
People email me from time to time asking, "How can I upload images to the Daily Paul?" Well, I hate to say it, but the answer is, you can't.
The reason is that 1) it could result in unpleasantness as spammers upload porn pictures, etc. None of us want that, and it would be a mess for me to clean up. Also, 2) there are new liability concerns for me, as bottom feeder nemesis Righthaven is now suing webmasters over images.
In the past, I've pictures that people have emailed me, resized them, uploaded them and embedded them on the site. This isn't a satisfactory solution either, since I become a bottleneck, and I simply don't have the time.
I would like to suggest, and solicit suggestions on how to make this easier.
My suggestion is to use the site Imagur, at: http://imgur.com. You can easily upload images anonymously, and then link to them. Be sure to turn of geotagging on your phone, otherwise you could be stalked!
I would also like solicit suggestions on other image sharing sites that would be appropriate. Any services you use and like? Pro's & cons?
Many thanks for your input.
