I tried to join this Flickr thing but they seem to want you to create a new email address with Yahoo!

I might not want a Yahoo email address so what then?

You don't need to create a new email account. I managed to start a Flickr account without doing so.

Please can you guide me through the process? I am probably doing something wrong.

On the login page where it is inviting you to put down your details, choose a password, etc. just give it your current email address and ignore the blue lettering saying 'I'd rather create a new Yahoo email address'.
It will then take you through on the basis of your current email address.

No luck. It just won't accept.

I have read on the official Flickr website that you can only sign up as a new user if you adopt a "Yahoo" email address.

These hosting sites all seem to be getting too big for their boots.

There are some forums who provide a service so posting photos is automatic and still free.

I remain confused.

Tapatalk is an App for smartphones and tablets, it lets you upload images directly from your device, not helpful if you use computer, but really useful when you use a phone.

Thanks for your advice. I can always do with help when it comes to using this technology. Fortunately, I have found 'postage' to be the answer. Incidentally, I have had to use my iPhone while my MacBook Pro was in for repairs but I found it fiddly. That is probably because I don't generally use a phone like so many people do these days.

As it happens, my computer was beyond economical repair and I am now using a MacBook Air which is far less cumbersome.

Hi Ray,me too on that. Also,they seem unable to sort out registering on the site! I've spent hours & not been able to register simply because I'd looked at it some years ago so my email address is already noted. Good job they couldn't hear me swearing at them - gave up in the end,cheers,JD.

That would be my recommendation too, it's a doddle.

If you use BT as your internet provider...you should be able to use that. Yahoo hosts BT email etc. But then, not everyone uses BT!!

Very kind of you Alistair. I have so much to learn. I seem to have sorted out my posting photos difficulty with 'postimage' but thanks for the advice. I had no idea about BT.

Having successfully used Postimage since the Photobucket debacle, I now cannot access the Postimage site - I get the message 'the server's IP address could not be found'! Anyone else got this problem, or is it just me?
