I use a friendly free host where the only condition is a time limit
so to keep free space for owner's operations. :cool:
Your pictures in Nature & Wildlife don't disappear, are they from your computers h.d.? Why not put the picture there and upload it, it's free and doesn't disappear.

All my pictures are posted from the host's website and all
have a limited but equal appearance time… ok with me.
I see, you can save money that way but aren't you concerned with losing at least your very best pictures or do you have a means to store them ... permanently?

Oops… I just checked. My pictures in Nature and Wildlife — I started
in sometime August 2021 — are no longer on the threads since their
time limit has expired, as expected.

This decision has nothing to do with money… at all but with the know-
ledge that I have no talent with codes nor other abilities with web tech.

I never keep jpgs on my highly capable machine (only RAWs) because
they are easy and quick to publish when needed.

I see, kind of like how I do. I have a 2 TB h.d. and I only keep the raw and the processed copy of each pic I decide to keep. If I run out of h.d. (and it will take a long time before I do) I just buy another. I could pay for the use of "Cloud" but I would rather put my money into something that I control. So, is that picture lost forever or can you repost it somehow?

Flickr lets one store 1000 pics at no cost. I learned a valuable lesson recently, when my storage drive with all my pics just stopped. Fortunately, all of them were on MS OneDrive in the cloud. I would have been so devastated if I had permanently lost them.

I did that with cloud and it's nice but I quickly filled it up. I just didn't want to pay for their storage beyond that. I chose instead to put my money toward a 'back up' hd that will prevent any loss.

I share that.

I got myself 2x 16TB/RAID 5 QNAP TimeMachines to back up all
my SSDs and their contents.
That's a lot of hd space, I'm assuming you do save at least your best pictures on it and maybe chuck the so-so shots. That's what I do to save space.

Assuming is not always right.
This exchange leads nowhere, I'm out.
So you do have a huge hd that you keep pics on after all. What I thought. If you didn't want to post the pic all you had to say was you didn't want to but you lead us to this instead. I tried talking to you but you aren't straight with me. I'm out, no more exchanges with you.
