Is there a way to simply attach a photo? I saw the post about hosting sites, but I just can't figure out how to do that. And how does one get permission to attach?

-There are no attachments on here.
-There are no permissions required.
-You need to have a 3rd party photo hosting site, then link your pics from there to here. A word about Photobucket, though. Folks used to be able to link their pics for free. But, they now require that you pay them upgrade service fee for that. So, folks now use other photo hosting sites.

Thank you Gary. I just joined and was wondering how to do this. And I believe if you have a yahoo email it makes it even easier.

Here you go. I hope you have the deluxe account, or your photos will not stay up long.

No they don't but their site is challenging (at first) to use. Find a no charge and easy to use site if you can...


It's only theory unless you've been there and done that.

I downloaded Flickr app on mobile to share photos on here and I dont have the option when I click the arrow for share.
Doesn't show me to select size or BB code.
It just shows "copy URL"

Do you have a home computer you can use? That's how I made the slide.

At the suggestion of another member, I signed up with postimage.org. Easy to use.

I know its a stupid question but why can't the site be changed to upload a picture rather than going thru a 3rd party? Whats the deal?

The most logical answer right off the bat, is that everything is simple when you're using the other guy's money to pay (in this case - for a convenience).

With the current forum software, it may be possible or may not - it would assuredly not be free to the forum owner. Who charges no fees nor places ads to offset invoices he pays to keep the site running.

soflaac is correct.

The cost of bandwidth as well as the space to host the pictures on this site's "server" (with the hosting company) can be considerable cost.

By having images hosted on 3rd party image hosting sites that are used by members, that "cost" is passed on/born to those third party hosting sites, and they make revenue to cover that cost.

This forum is (with rare exception), paid for out of the owner's pocket and he made the decision to not monetize the site, use ads or other means to cover (additional) costs in order to host images for direct upload.
