I use http://photobucket.com/, myself. Some people don't like it.

You can attach photos directly to your post, as well. When you start a thread or hit reply click the "Attachments and other options" below the text box. It gives you the option to upload an image directly from your computer.
No matter where you go, there I am. Watching you.

I use imgur. It gives you code that you can just copy and paste into forums and the picture automatically comes up. I doubt that's unique to imgur but I know they have it.

I've found the easiest way is to use the Tapatalk app to upload pics straight from my phone. The only caveat is that tapatalk commonly posts newly started threads twice.  Not sure why that happens so often.

I use my Blog to host the pictures. Then right click and "copy picture address". When using in a post here click the "insert image" button (fourth from the left) and paste the address in between the ] and [.

I have a dumbphone :) all it does is send text messages and act like a telephone, and that's all I want it to do :D

I've used photobucket for years, thousands of photo hosted there but my frustration with it of late has reached the point that i'd never recommend it but i can not offer up a better alternative.

I don't have a phone but i've an ipod, i only use it for the camera.

If my photos are missing again... they're hosted by photobucket... and as of 06/2017 being held hostage... to be continued?

If I'm not attaching directly off my laptap, I use my facebook link for the pic as most of them go up in my pedal builds album that I have there.
