Below is the response I gave to another similar reply to a similar question posted earlier in the week....

No one HAS to belong specifically to a pic hosting site to link images here and it's misleading to suggest the necessity of a dedicated photo-hosting site. Any site where images are housed can support image linking via a direct URL..

My site is just standard space for which I pay a small fee annually. It is not a photo-hosting site. There, I have posted a personal album from which I can link images herein. In fact, for many ISPs, members receive a small amount of free web space. Photos uploaded to ISP space can be linked to DPR forums...

If you have a gmail account or a google account, you can do this for free using either google documents or google pages. I've got one google document loaded with zany giffs that I just copy and paste into email, whatever. You can either publish or keep private either one of these. The documents is easier to use, probably. It's like making a word doc. You upload your image to the doc..

Of course, picasa web is free too unless you get a huge library as well but you have to know the workaround from picasa to get the pics into this forum...

....that will show you the way....And a good size for viewing is around 800 on the long side of the picture, then use 'save as' and add something like r8 to the file name so you don't overwrite your original..


You can't embed them from your own computer..
