I used www.tinypic.com when I want to post a picture of something that doesnt have a URL to use the Insert Image.

I then use the IMG Code for Forums & Message Boards

I understand the need sometimes to insert text between images so as to create a narrative. The biggest problem with linking in from an outside host is if those pics are not reachable then the forum user gets to see big empty areas with no pics. For this reason I really recommend staying with adding attachments using the Manage Attachments button. The pics are then uploaded and stored within the forum database. No need to rely on an outside host to ensure the images remain available.

Hi Brian,

Yes, they take up space and cost us bandwidth. Doesn't slow us down though, we've got a fast server. It's worth it to have them here on our hard drive where they won't go away.

So many of the free hosting sites have folded over the years, there's no reason to expect any of them to stay around.

And if it does slow us down, we'll get Dave a bigger, faster server.

Mmmm, we can do that, can't we, Dave?

Thanks davem,

I think most of us, especially me was thinking of the forum and trying
to host them off site as to save the forum bandwidth.

but I understand your point with them going under, most are crappy.
