Since this is tennis related decided to post here.

Using my 15x zoom camera, took TONS of photos at IW, stayed there for about a week.

So I need to upload these.

imageshack no mas, gets expired,
flickr too, only 300mb per month :tape:

I need UNLIMITED, FREE, EASY TO BULK UPLOAD site.

Any suggestions?

Or should I just make another facebook acct and upload there? Now facebook is pretty reliable and meets all those criteria...:lol:

Photobucket. It's easy, free and unlimited, and you can login from your facebook account. :)

Will receive suggestions until like tomorrow and then will ponder...:lol:

It's only 15x zoom so don't expect expert's quality like saul1333's, but tried to take pics of many aspects of the venue and such.

videos are as usual being uploaded as of now at youtube, so far Sunday ones, and posted match impressions at my blog, all at my signature.

Managed to post a few pics at flickr before the capacity was full :tape: Anyway you can 'sample' my pic quality there

Any suggestions? How bout posting some of your best shots here? This isn't the place to post a LOT of pictures, but a few of your best shots would be very interesting to see. I took a couple of hundred shots at IW12, but only posted my best 4 on this forum (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=455171).

imgur is great, really easy to use. I don't think it lets you upload any file bigger than 2MB though, but apart from that I really recommend it :)

I do like imgur's design, but most of my files are easily over 3MB :hysteric:

I do want to upload in bulk, so I'm currently trying to bulk upload Mar. 7 pics (damn I need to delete pics of eye-candies among spectators :oh: ) at use.com ...that day alone I took about 800 pics :tape:

And saul1333, the picture quality will never be as good as yours :lol:

Ooo wait, just tried a couple of large files (3.something MB and 5.something MB) on imgur and they both worked. It must just not agree with large GIF files :oh:

but can I upload in bulk there? I really need that function, since I took more than 500 pics per day :tape:

and FAQs are a bit confusing to me, about picture getting expired :lol:

The pictures stay there forever, but you can only view the last 225 you uploaded in your album. Besides, you can only post 20 pics per post on here anyway so it's all pretty good :)

but I took photos at least twice that amount PER DAY at IW :hysteric: What's the use if other users can't view those :sobbing:

They can still view them, they don't get deleted, it's just that you won't be able to see them in your album (so you'll have to post them first before you upload another 225)

In their words:

"Standard accounts are limited to the 225 most recent images. After that, the newest uploads will be shown and the oldest uploads will be bumped out of the account (not deleted, just hidden from within the account)"


And I figured out why it allows large pictures but not GIFs - it automatically compresses the file to a 1MB size limit, so the quality of your pics won't be as good.

I like http://minus.com/. It's free, almost unlimited storage (2GB per file, 50GB total), and you can bulk upload. Although I don't know how fast the bulk upload is compared to other sites because I've never tried to upload as many pics as you have.

you should crop your photos. select the interesting part, usually the player, and remove the rest, which is usually empty tennis court or background. this will reduce your photo file sizes by quite a lot and make uploading faster. ofc when you have hundreds to do it can be quite boring

Imagebam has a zip-upload function: http://www.imagebam.com/

The maximum size for the .zip file is 250MB.:)

And if you use the multi-upload function, the maximum size for each photo is 10MB.

thx for the advice guys. I tried to upload in bulk via use.com but lots of pics failed to get uploaded.
I'll try imgur, thx to Marry Cherry.'s persistent effort :p
let me first link my use.com acct so you guys can take a peek at Mar. 7 pictures. if the link appears in my sig., you know the work is in progress :lol:

huh, I'm already liking imgur, it's quite intuitive?, you can just drag the images from the pic folder and drop on the imgur page..upload is pretty fast too, it seems.

I was there and took pics from Mar 2 (PQ semifinal) to 12, 11 days. That's LOTS of images :lol: I'll upload chronologically, from Mar 2, am in fact doing now. Will post the link later at my sig.

Mar 15th, 2012, 04:21 PM
ok I just posted 70 pics for Mar 2. and also posted imgur link at my sig, hope you guys enjoy :wavey:

imgur doesn't have a caption function, that's too bad.

imgur upload gets frequently interrupted :o Or is it my internet connection..
