Holy smokes is right!! I was just lurking on the forum today!! Did I set off a security alarm? Did u set up a virtual tripwire or are u spying on me haha. Just kidding.

 

Wow, life has a funny way of screwing up our plans right? I’ve been telling people I started my build 3 years ago haha…NOT. According to my build thread, I started 4 years ago. But I actually tore into my car months before that. I know I’m slow but we’re not quite at the 5 year mark haha. But I might be the oldest/longest build thread on here right? Do I get a trophy? Haha

 

I do have good & bad news to post as I have been inching along. But I wanted to post pics as well.  Keep a lookout for my thread.

 

Are pics still a favorite here? Unfortunately, this ‘PhotoSuckit” deal screwed up most of the pix on my build thread. I wanna fix those pix & post new ones. Fixing the old pix is gonna take time. I am trying to figure out what route to go with posting pix. 

 

What photo sharing site are u guys using? 

 

Thanks for reaching out Winston. If i hadn’t been lurking I may have missed your post. Everything happens for a reason.

                     It's extremely easy to post pics on this site, assuming you have them loaded into your computer.....only takes a few seconds.

I look forward to your report and some new pics.!

Ever since I saw this short video I try to be careful about posting pix. So I was using Photosuckit eversince. Now that option is no longer available.

 

Is posting our pix thru the forum a safe alternative vs using a photo sharing site? Sorry if this is common knowledge. But I mentioned before…I’m slow haha

The obvious solution to this issue is to use a digital camera instead of your phone to take pictures. That's what I do. I only use

my phone for talking to someone. It's amazing how Google has completely destroyed everyone's privacy in just a few short years.

The dude in the video said that digital cameras have the same problem. 

Only the  newer digital cameras have a GPS feature that shows in the EXIF File, and if yours does, you can cancel the GPS feature by accessing the camera's menu, and turning it OFF !

HI Tech gadgets - aren't they great ? :rolleyes:

@RockinRiviDad I know more about photos than cars. Suggest you google “How do I remove EXIF data from [your device]?” You’ll find easy directions, whether you use an Android phone, iPhone, windows computer, or Mac. While Facebook and eBay remove location data, this site may not, but you can easily remove before posting.

Perfect.

 

I tried a new photo sharing site (Flickr). It’s either not very user friendly or I’m just getting old & cant figure it out. 

 

I will try your route. Thank u
