    I know how!!!

    Photobucket sent me a notice the other day that they knew I was hosting pictures on their site for viewing on other sites, like this one. They want to SELL me the privilege of looking at my own pictures here and are darned proud of their ability to do that.

    My question is, what is a good, simple FREE hosting site for pictures that are to be viewed on forums like this one?

    I wouldn't put them on another site, just upload directly to here from your device. Is there a specific reason you would just them elsewhere?

    Ken,
    All images must be uploaded to our server. Offsite image hosts such as photobucket are not allowed.
    So like Colin said, please upload them directly on here....

    Well... then I guess I DON'T know how. When I tap the picture frame, it asks me for an image URL. That's what I've been getting from Photobucket. Where else do I get that URL?

    Sorry for my ignorance.

    Nevermind, I went fishing and found a tutorial. That picture frame thingy must come with the site software. That's the way I've been loading pictures since the beginning of time!

    Thanks, @Lou Currier I saw one of Doc's posts and hat to try it!

    @ripjack13 I hope the MS Craftsman's Guild thinks so! I should be hearing back from them any day now. :headscratch2:

    Just for clarification:

    upload_2017-8-27_7-53-23.png

    The picture icon in the editor is for linking to an off site image.

    Uploading images here, you use the "Upload a File" button at the bottom of the editor.

    When I select “upload a file” from the three buttons below the reply space, here, I get these options. I choose “photo library” and choose a pic from among the pics on my phone. Nothing seems to happen, but the pic (or pics) is/are included in the reply when I hit “post reply”.

    If you’re not getting that 3-item menu, then it very well may be in your settings, either on your phone or here, in your profile. Hope that helps.
