For those posting pics please use another image host besides Imagehaven.net. Whenever I click on photos hosted there I get a warning from Microsoft Security Essentials that my computer has been infected and then I have to run a cleanup. It's probably no big deal but I know others who use Microsoft Security Essentials have run into that as well. Don't know why Imagehaven doesn't remove what's causing the alert since a lot of people use MSE and it's been going on for awhile now.

List of reliable image hosting sites:

http://www.imagebam.com (allows images up to 10 megabytes)
http://www.imagevenue.com
http://www.imageupper.com/
http://postimage.org/
http://www.turboimagehost.com/ (allows images up to 10 megabytes)

Alright will try to remember that, using imagebam whenever possible anyway.
I don't have any issues with imagehaven running SEP 12.1 though.

Thanks Touni. The issue seems to only occur with Microsoft Security Essentials. Whether it's a false alarm, I can't say but I don't want to take any chances and I don't want to cause any alarm to others who use MSE as their antivirus software.

I also want to remind anyone reading this to please make sure you mark your images as "FAMILY SAFE" when uploading them to an imagehost. If they're marked as "ADULT" most of the image hosting sites will run porn ads.
