    When I post a photo on Fun these days can I then delete it from my device and have it stay on Fun or does it go from Fun too?

    Thanks in advance.

    it has to be on fun or we wouldn't see it when your device is switched off.

    Does it not depend upon how you upload your photos? I use photo bucket for example so you just insert a link to the file on there.

    Best to keep a backup JJ. The pictures are on the forums servers and also backed up. But there are no guarantees and a local copy is always advisable.

    I would copy them off your phone onto a laptop or external hard disk.

    Thanks for the info.

    Yes, I used to go via Photo Bucket but since the server change it photos seem to upload without it...

    When you made space in Photobucket they were lost to Fun.

    Didn't know if some clever software worked in the background

    Thanks Karl... but what happens is I always take two or three shots of the same subject and then post one of them on Fun.

    I want to delete the duplicates but might delete the actual shot I used on Fun.

    Seems it won't matter if I do...

    Album clear out coming up.

    I have GigaBytes of stored photo's. At one airshow I took over 1200 pictures. I still go through them now and again (y):p
