    Ca Now Hosts All User Images For Free

    In the interest of preserving images in important threads and throughout the site, Conceptart.org now has an attachment manager set for all registered members. Rather than use your own host, uploading the images to ftp and using IMG tags etc...you may now upload images directly to conceptart.org through the ATTACHMENT MANAGER located below the text input window in the "new thread" or "reply" to thread areas of the site. Quick reply does not show the attachment manager. You must "go advanced" or use the reply or new thread buttons to access it.

    Thanks to the workshop, we are able to afford goodies like this. I hope this makes things a little easier around here as well.

    Cheers!

    There are so many big announcements going on here lately.
    This is great. I see it. I don't even want to know how much adding a feature like this would cost. *shivers*

    Thank you for this treat

    with 400000 visitors a month and 40k members it is going to be a lot of bandwidth that is for sure. but it really is the only way to be sure threads stay complete over time. It also enables us to build in the thumbnail tech like cgtalk uses in front of their threads...making for easy browsing.

    wow... question about that btw, is it made by the admins or actually done by code? if code, this would be FANTASTIC as a "last image uploaded preview" thumbnail sorta thing for the s/b section...maybe even userdefined thumbnails.

    Would it make sense then for each of us to replace the images we now have anchored in our own Image Sites in various existing places like the tutorials and such, and the winner's lists that are popping up for various competitions?

    ...and might I suggest a bit of discretion on using this overwhelming and much-appreciated service for the trash talk and lounge posts and such to prevent the CA storage drives from resembling my litter box...

    Maybe art only where possible? Not hard to do with a bit of self control on the part of each of us...

    i assume you have to put commentaries directly on the pics if you want them to go along with em,right?
    edit: what's the attachment size limit/limit of images per post/limit per file?

    I think it is 250k per image, at the monment...

    though if your image is borderline too big, you can always use photoshop and optimize your images by "saving for web" instead of a regular save. For example, if you have a 6"x8" @ 72 dpi, which has a file size of about 250kb, you could choose "save for web" and adjust the presets to:
    -jpeg
    -very high
    -optimized
    -Quality= 80
    and that will reduce your image size from about 250kb to about 95kb, without any noticeable difference to the actual image.

    does anyone have their pics disappearing from their threads like I do?
    If it's not the new systems of CA hosting the attached images, then It might be my host.

    Fantastic! I lost a ton of my sketches in my sketch thread because the outside image host I had them on went kaput.

    thanks very much, Jason.

    That's pretty cool. I'll likely still host my own images but it's nice to have the option.

    NO- NOT CA IMAGE host. Sorry, bad typing on my part. I was meaning the hosting service that I had my images on - NOT CA.

    I just reread my post above, and god it sounds bad. I'll go and edit it. My thanks to Jason was genuine for providing this service, because I can use it here - I wasn't trying to be sarcastic.

    Curse my typostic fingers!

    shit. I'll shut up now.
