    Somehow I had figured out how to host images for either posting in forums or MySpace using my idisk and .mac account.
    However, after switching to iLife '06 and also after my husband "fixed" our computer and basically moved our entire hard drive and effectively cleared out all my iWeb stuff, I no longer know how to do this.
    Should I just do an ImageShack or Photobucket account for the occasional image hosting?
    Can someone explain how to use the .mac and idisk?

    :apple: system preferences .MAC to setup your .mac info

    Than in Finder you can see the IDISK folder just use it like an external drive.

    I Love .mac for hosting images etc but a big problem I found is when you password protect web albums or sites it takes 30seconds or more to access the images while unprotected sites are instant..

    Thanks so much for the reply. Could you provide how the image url should look?
    I can save stuff to the idisk but each time i try the url, I must be doing something wrong because nothing is showing up on the webpage after I type in the url I think I should use.
