Limited space on Fotki?????

mozekemozeke Posts: 480Registered Users
So I was experimenting with some recipes for my hair and was about to post some pics for you guys to see when fokti shut me down. Apparently you can only have 50 MB of space for pics. :thumbdown: How can that be? I've visited tons of fotki's and they had way more pics than (10 max ) I have. Anyways I'm not about to pay for it so does anyone else know of a place I can post pics for all my natural family to see?

    You can maximize your free Fotki space by deleting your originals. Your displayed photos still remain. I learned this after I payed the premium membership.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    how do you delete the originals SBB? I'm having the same issue and while $30 is pretty cheap for a whole year, I'd rather spend $30 bucks on some new clothes!

    I want a fast fix and maybe in May I'll pay them...
    I just want to do what I want to do when I want to do it.

    You can click on each album and there's a Delete Originals link on the left menu

    OMG! That's good to know. I will try deleting originals too. You can also resize your pics before uploading them. On my PC I used to use Microsoft Resize Powertoy to take my pics from over 1MB to 100Kb. On my Mac, I resize my pics in iPhoto.

    The picture looks the same on Fotki despite the size difference. You only need the maximum file size if you plan to order pictures.

    Every 30 days you can also request 10MB of additional space by going into the account settings of your Fotki account. I've done it 3 times so far and they granted the additional space automatically.
