remote images





AGStudios
To save on bandwidth I wanted to use remote hosting for my images.my group and I are working on an art site for our small buisness and we want to have our images hosted by photobucket but still viewable on our Fri host site the way you can remote host images on a BBS style forum.We plan on using Dreamweaver to create our site and we would like some assistance.

I'm no Dreamweaver wiz (I kind of despise it), but you can use this simple HTML code:
Code:

<img alt="title of image, make sure you have this so non-image supporting browsers can see at least this" border="the border of the image, usually 0" src="http://imglink.com" />


Just throw that code in Dreamweaver where you want the image to go.

Do it, but be aware that images will take longer to load, and that maybe they will get moved, (photobucket does it from time to time), resized, rewritten, etc etc etc. AND you might annoy the user if the images just don't show up.

I agree with PolarBear it would be best to host on your own site, if possible.

Yeah,

To save on bandwidth you could also :

Host only a thumbnail of your image on your server, and if it has to be enlarged by a mouseclick, refer/link to a bigger-one hosted on a photobucket-type server.

If you absolutely can't host your own images, then this would be the way to go, but its always best to host your own.

In case you're wondering how to do what that guy talked about its pretty easy.
<A HREF="address to the offsite picture, don't forget the http://"><IMG SRC="address to the pic on your host" BORDER="0"></A>

That BORDER="0" gets ride of the border the link creates around the image, its ugly and its defualt should never ever be seen.
