IMPORTANT NOTICE - TINYPIC IS SHUTTING DOWN TOMORROW

WARNING: Tinypic will PERMANENTLY shut down on September 9th. All images will be taken with it. Download anything you want to keep.

According to a notification on their website, TinyPic is shutting down their website at some point in 2019, and they say that the reason they are shutting it down is because the ever-dwindling ad revenue is no longer enough to support a free image host.

If you have images on Tinypic, I implore you to move the images to a different image host, the best alternative currently being CubeUpload since it is free, but it does require an account.

This would be a good opportunity for me to plug Xomf.com, since similar to Tinypic, it's a simple image sharing website that doesn't require an account (you can't even make an account) and is totally free without any intrusive advertising. I really hope the Scratch Team approves it as an SF image host, preferably before Tinypic bites the dust and takes all of its images with it.

Oh boy, there should be a forum announcement on this matter. Luckily for me, I've always used CubeUpload. xD
Hopefully people will see this.

just use scratch project thumbnails

I NEED YOUR ATTENTION!! THIS IS URGENT!! Sorry for making such an eye-catching statement, but we need help raising attention to the unfair treatment of kumquats! Kumquats are always seen as fruits that eat signatures– this is wrong! I know, because I am a kumquat myself! Put a message relating to kumquat equality in your signature! Kumquats are being treated very unfairly! Because not all kumquats eat signatures; some are just plain inanimate! Below is a link to my studio supporting this equality movement.

Or just host your images on cubeupload..? It's not that hard to make an account :P Also, wouldn't it be tiresome to make a whole studio just for one image?

Same with me, I've always used Cubeupload. People that use Tinypic should see this topic.

Anyways, too bad Tinypic is shutting down. But there are lots of other image hosters…

EDIT: Wait, will using the wayback machine technically allow Tinypic to still be usable?

(Cubeupload shuts down) NOOOOOOOOOOOO

I don’t know exactly how it works, but I assume even if you could get the url (which I don’t see how you could from the wayback) I would think it wouldn’t work anymore once the site shut down

Your country has probably blocked all those sites. It's called government censorship. I might be wrong.

A VPN pretty much reroutes your Internet connection to a different location, so you can get around censorship.

I refuse to press the button, but it's strange to see an image host shutting down.

is this a question about Scratch? It's not.

Hi, I'm ResExsention, that New Scratcher who refuses to promote themself! I really do look forward to getting to know you!

If you see "[DATA EXPUNGED]", you'll know it was deleted by me. It's a lot easier.

Oh whoops my bad. But still, that doesn't change the fact that making a whole nother project just for that can get annoying and tiresome. Plus, I'm sure that simply uploading an image to cubeupload is faster than making a project, uploading the image, make it the thumbnail, get the link to the thumbnail image, etc.

Yeah, and the image size would be reduced to 360x480, and if you want your image to be larger, you'd have to make it in vector which is impossible to export as a .jpg or .png.

Plus, cubeupload is unbelievably easy to sign up to, and if you don't have an email address, you can always use 10-minute mail. It's easy and secure to use, and you can get another 10 minutes if you wish.
