    Why not just post the pictures using QRZ ? Not a third party.

    http://photos.imageevent.com/ Is not a secure site. That may be the problem.

    I will do that if necessary. It's just much more convenient using the site I store them.
    Thanks, you may be right about secure sight.

    It is Adblock. With it on I do not see any photos in this thread. With it off I see them all.

    Thank you sir, good to know. I have started to just shrink the high res versions and then attach them. Hopefully it's easier for everyone.

    No - QRZ does not use bots. All ads are viewed and handled by human Moderators. The Swapmeet section is the "most watched" by moderators forum on QRZ. However, using a 3rd party image hosting service can be very problematic. The day this thread started, one of the big image hosting sites had a melt-down and that resulted in a large number of QRZ ads being deleted (by Moderators) for no images.

    Please only use the "Upload a File" button and upload your for-sale listing photos to the site, rather than use a 3rd party hosting service. Not everyone's browser settings will allow outside image tags - ad blockers, spam blockers, and other security settings can make it so some users won't see your pictures. And if the Swapmeet moderator is one of those, your ad will be removed.

    Thanks Dave, any new ads I put up I will upload the pictures instead of external hosts. Thanks for the explanation.
