Default Image Hosting at Halie.com

All,

I see a number of people worried about hard to use or retired image hosting services... We built halie.com, it's really easy to use and fast, free. It stays out of your way, no advertising. The platform is built on AWS+EFS+RDS and although it was built as an experiment we have no plans to take it down.

If you store an image permanently you have to put in a valid email and from time to time you get a link you have to click to keep the images from being deleted, after the initial email, depending how how many images you upload, you should only get a reminder about twice a year.

It was built specifically for hosting images so perfect for forums and you get the ability to manipulate the image with hardly any effort, for example if the image is halie.com/abc123.png you can change the link to something like halie.com/scale/50/abc123.png and it will scale it down to 50% or whatever you need.

Hope you guys find it useful!

Default very cool

Great work, Bill!

Now, just slurp in all the images from VAF before the other image hosting companies go out of business. It would be great to have a single place with all VAF images, and when you click on them, it takes you back to the thread.

Hopefully, my initial attempt is successful. I chose a pic of the plane on the ramp at KTVL, South Tahoe Airport, last weekend.

I could build a scraper to get all the images, but no way to update all the URLs in the VAF database.

If the site owner really wanted to do this I could get it done. Not trying to pickup another project, but would do it.

I see that VAF isn't using AWS for hosting, some company called fpweb.net. I'd be willing to help the owner move VAF up to AWS and take advantage of the redundancy, performance, and savings which could lead to the ability to host it's own images. Based on a few threads I've read, doesn't look like there would be much desire to do so. But that would be a better idea than trying to scape all the images off and store them somewhere. Ultimately, to be a true information archive, VAF will need to store it's own images.

Just remember, that VAF doesn't own the majority of the images that are shared here. Scraping them and re-hosting could be a viewed as a stealing someones property. I'm not sure how big an issue it would be with the folks here, but it might be something that the VAF site owner doesn't want to get legally involved in.

Some people are pretty picky about their images.

Very good point. Another reason for VAF to look for ways to host it's own images [ed. No thank you! and again here is why dr]. Keep that knowledge maintained.
