How do I post images?

On this forum (courtesy of boardhost) we can only post links to pictures/photos.  So no pictures are actually hosted by the forum server, they need to be located somewhere else.

I'm sure there are a number of ways of doing it but after some trial and error this is how I am doing it.

I upload my picture to photos.google.com or imgur.com and then view it, right click and select Copy image link.

Then within my forum post I click on the image icon and paste my URL into the box.  It works perfectly every time!

I previously tried dropbox but wasnt able to generate a link that worked reliably.

As an alternative, imgur works exceptionally well, and does not require logging in. Upload the image, and links are immediately available on the right side.
