View Full Version : Where to host image

02-06-2009, 04:58 PM

I have an image that is 1280 x 1024 and I we are using it as a background image on a website. Well I have problems with the server and the hosting company, so the image is not loading.
I want to find somewhere that I can host the image. Not another server, but rather some sort of image host like Photobucket.

However, the problem with Photobucket is that it down sizes the image. I need somewhere that will display the full size of the image to the website's background.

Is there anywhere that offers this?.

Ok, seems like Imageshack fits the bill for my needs.

Do you really need to use an image that large? It could take aeons to load on a slow connection - is there any way you could break it down into a repeating 'tile'?

It is one big image and I have never broke these down into smaller segments before, so would be unsure how to do that. I need it to fit the screen resolutions. This is a background photo for myspace.

if you DO want to break down the picture into repeating tiles, you could resize the picture when you host it in imageshack.us or tinypic.com, then you could edit the css code in your myspace. there should be a portion there that says, "fixed non-repeat", just change it into "repeat"

Imageshack is fine... If it is your own image then you can use flickr itself.
