Default What happens to the Photos Uploaded on the Forum?

As most of you know, there are at least a couple of ways of Uploading your Photos to the Forum.

The First is from a Hosting Site like Photobucket.

And the other and some say more easier way, is to Upload them directly from this page by Clicking on the Yellow Square above.

The one that looks as if its got two Pyramids and a Postage Stamp on it, which I think in 'Photospeak' is called a 'Histogram'

If you Upload a Photo using Photobucket and later remove that Photo from Photobucket, you can remove that Photo from your Post and then it will Show up on here as Image no longer available (or something like that)

But if you Upload your Photos using the Pyramid 'Thingy' what happens to those Photos?

Are they kept on 'The Cloud' somewhere, so that you cannot delete them.

Also what would happen if you deleted the Photo from your Computer, would it still appear on your Post or would it show up as 'Image no longer available'

Would it still be possible to request that one of your Photos is deleted from a Post, if for instance you wanted to replace it with another one?

If you want to change a photo you could probably go back to your post and edit it. They stay with the old posts. Deleting them on you computer wouldn't make a difference as the are stored on this forums server.

I've moved your question to the Feedback section.

I don't have the answer to your question myself but i'm sure one of the team who knows will be along soon.

For sure once the picture is uploaded to the forum it's "safe" and won't be lost, it will always be there in your post.

They are stored on forum owner (Internet Brands) servers. Members have a limited time to edit posts so you cannot go back weeks or month later and delete them.

YES, it still appears. The photo is on the forum servers so deleting it from your computer does NOT remove it from the post.

YES - the Moderator Team always have unrestricted access to posts and can remove or replace a photo at any time. I've done this a few times for members.

For the benefit of anyone following this thread in future, my answers in post #4 refer only to photos uploaded to the forum.

The alternative method of linking to offline storage will always give an 'image no longer available' message if the original is subsequently moved to a different path by the poster.

We have many excellent technical threads where this has happened which can make it difficult for readers to follow them without the photos. This is why my preferred method of attaching photos to posts is to upload them.
