    I just realised I cannot post my own pictures since I store these always on an older Mac which does have a really old Safari that I unfortunatley cannot update anymore.

    Apparently, this Safari version and our forum are incompatible — I simply cannot open the address.

    Is there any chance of a workaround?

    Please tell me the Safari version and also your Mac OS version so I can do some research.

    I will look into it. Do you upload your images anywhere else on the web, eg Flickr, Smugmug, Facebook?

    Thank you again :)
    No, I'm abstinent regarding that — wait, almost I should say. I have an «abload.de» account that I haven't used in years …

    Good, that «aboad.de» account is still working — I guess that's viable.

    I hope they don't make annoying pop-ups, pop-unders, or the like?

    I take it you don't want to use Chrome on your old Mac?

    The iMac in question is completely blocked regarding any browser except Safari. I guess that was not a bug, but a feature then eight or so years ago ;)
    That's the reason why I re-activated my even older MacBook, that allowed me to install Firefox, and here the forum works :)

    test #2 … … …

    dscn29362cyei.

    … so far it looks good. (btw: here you see my wife and my daughter #2)

    Dear Amin,
    may I suggest: let us wait a couple of days whether or not my «upload.de» pictures are so to say stable — I hope they don't develop bugs!

    Beautiful photo, Alexander!

    Abload is fine. Our software automatically copies the hotlinked image to our server, so it doesn't matter if Abload keeps the image hosted stably.

    Thank you — but that's not my merit, nor the camera's :D

    OK, then I guess I'll use abload, case solved :)
