I thought my image host was always up and did have enough bandwidth to support my images, most of my images are screenshots I took with a tool. Now apparently I've got a mail that I'm reaching the bandwidth limit for free users, which means that if I continue to use the tool like this I will simply get out of bandwidth and a lot of my answers will then just show broken images.

Other than that, I eventually have infrequently used a link that points to an external source.

It would be handy if I could port my images to imgur in order to prevent this problem.

How do I go about and do this in an automatized manner? Perhaps this can be interesting as a solution?

If there is no automation possible or if it is prohibited, how do I form a Data Exchange query to find images?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is totally a Meta question - seems weird to be migrated here. It doesn't make sense as a webmasters question at all, to me. – NickC May 14 '11 at 20:37
@Renesis: I agree, some people need to double check their actions. :( – Tom Wijsman May 14 '11 at 23:33
@Renesis I agree as well, this is weird! – BloodPhilia May 15 '11 at 15:06

Don't know much about doing this, but I made you a Query to look for images in you posts through Data Explorer. Let me know if something's wrong with it!

Not so bad idea, I could probably just insert the host I'm using and also create ones that don't contain. – Tom Wijsman May 14 '11 at 20:11
@TomWij Check the Query now, you can now look for a certain host as well. – BloodPhilia May 14 '11 at 20:15
@TomWij Updated the link! Use that one! – BloodPhilia May 14 '11 at 20:17
