I'm trying to upload a certain image to http://tinypic.com/ but it always says the image has been moved or deleted. No problems with any other image.

The picture is this.


I did some research on Google and found out that this is a very common issue.

Many TinyPic users have complained that their images were randomly deleted and according to Wikipedia TinyPic blocked site access to users from Argentina.

But since TinyPic is owned by Photobucket, maybe this thread can help. They are talking about a similar problem in Photobucket that can be solved by generating a URL with no spaces.

You can also consider using some other tools for image uploading like Cloudinary that store your images in the cloud utilizing Amazon's S3 service and also provide secure backups for your images, so no risk of loosing your pictures.

  • If you buy Photobucket premium do they preserve your tinypic pictures? – Smeterlink Oct 19 '19 at 7:22

As of August 2019, Tinypic is shutting down:

Due to an inability to support a high-quality free digital service that derives 100% of its revenue from ever declining on-site revenues, TinyPic will be permanently shutting down on September 16, 2019. Because we want to give you as much notice and information as possible during our transition, please carefully review the following information.

So, September 16, 2019, is the last day one would be able to access images.
