Found these in an old grain elevator today. The small sign on the far right is a scraper someone made from an early porcelain Chevrolet sign. Not the best condition but they are early, the price was right, and they have a cool story. NFS

You can FORGET using Photobucket any longer folks ! They want a "LICENSE Fee " to share your photos . Old gas needs to make it simpler as MOST other sites to re post pictures . I have NEVER figured the system out .

That 3rd party info popped up when I tried to preview this pic. I tried again and I can see it fine. Is it not showing up for anyone else?

COOP are you using the IMG link? That might be the issue .

When I first joined Oldgas I thought the process of posting pictures (and resizing them) was pretty confusing, and I've worked in IT for 25 years! Now that I've used it several times it's pretty simple, but I agree it's not very intuitive and not as simple as sites running different forum software.

I'm wondering if I should make a Youtube video of how to do this?

Yes, I'm using the IMG link like I've always used. It must be a problem with Photobucket. Any suggestions? A Youtube video of the new way would be helpful.

Apparently, from some other sites I visit, (the h.a.m.b.) there is some talk that photobucket switched to charging their customers $399 a year? Sounded like a lot of people there were quite ticked off. I still use imageshack, they charge as well but only $50 a year which I can handle. So that's the scuttlebutt that I heard, maybe someone else can elaborate or correct.

I wish everyone would use the image resize tool on Old Gas. It is not too difficult, once you know how.

The biggest problem with Imageshack, Photobucket and similar programs, is that once your photo is deleted from their site, it gets deleted here as well. This makes researching old prices, signs, values, authenticity (pictures of original versions), etc. very difficult when there is no picture because someone used Photobucket or Imageshack and the photo is no longer in the thread.

I wish all new members would try to learn the old gas re-size tool, to provide years of future reference material.

Totally agree Steve....it is super-frustrating when you do a forum search on Oldgas and all the pics are dead links. If we could all learn how to upload/embed pics within the thread, this site would be much more useful.

I agree with Steve and Brian.....it took me probably 20 minutes to figure out the resize and posting offered by the site a couple years ago. After I did it twice I had it down pat, and I've used it ever since. I look back on the Mobil COTM thread I hosted and see how useless it is now visually since I used Imageshack to post all of my pics. I had no idea that they wouldn't always be there. frown

I think I will start a new thread and mention this, since not everyone will make it to this thread. And we sort of Hi-jacked it. Please continue with those great BOTW.

I really don't understand why you bother with these guys for linking to photos on third-party sites like Oldgas. I would never pay for that. For sharing photos from vacation and stuff, yeah I get that.

I'll get a Youtube video created for posting pics on Oldgas....just give me a few days.
