I'm not terribly happy with media fire (it's just a free account anyway). I need to figure out how to host downloads through my website next so I don't have to use other download services (they all seem to be a bit of a pain if you don't pay for membership).

Try Drop Box. Jim suggested it a while back and it's pretty painless to use, once you've installed the software.
Then, any file you want to share you drag and drop a copy of into the dropbox shared folder. Give it a mintue to uplaod and then you can right click on it to get the link to the file, now hosted on drop box.
The only drawback is that you have to install the software. It was pretty painless and I don't find it intrusive. It runs in the background by default, but I've never noticed a drain on on system resources.
Does the end user (the downloader) have to install any software? I'd like to make it as easy as possible for my potential customers to get files from my website and not force them to jump through all kinds of hoops to get files.
If you find a hosting site with out all the hoops to jump through, please let me know.
I think that is a bit of a trick. I've found that I can host easily through my website and it works great for like a one page PDF that will open right in the browser. But what about a 30 page PDF (which would still open in a browser, but would take a while to load) or a file type that can't be displayed with a browser?
I'm going to have to do some research, there must be an EASY solution, especially if I am hosting through my own website...
About opening in a browser or not, i sometimes find PDFs that opens the save file dialog instead of the adobe "plugin". I guess it is a matter of declaring the file type using the appropriate HTML tags.... which i don't know so much.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
