Any image site is fine, you just need to use the .jpg or whatever link rather than the album link. On Flickr if you choose share and then BBCode it'll give you the full code to just paste into the forum.

I'd stay away from Photobucket. I have all my stuff on there historically but it's been really unreliable recently. I've started using Flickr.

Has the add photo option changed? I thought there used to be an option in post reply to just upload a picture from your phone.

I try that but says files too big now that camera on phones saves pictures in 2 to 5mb. Could maybe reduce size/quality and therefore size. But I have given in and use imgur simple enough

now this is a free site, so the photo you upload seem to go directly on there homepage. so keep private stuff private. :shhh:
1 logged in via my facebook login an the button is there when you click to sign up. thats its basically.

2 sign up and then post via pc or phone. the share picture seems to work better via pc/laptop, although uploading pictures via phone easy.
Image
3 go to image file under your login and then see pictures.
Image
4 click on 1 picture and then look at share and get the bbcode (this bit seems easier on laptop/pc) and copy paste on to your message on forum. although you can share other code on phone and someone can click on it to view

I always upload my photos using Tapatalk as it's easy and doesn't seem to give a size limit
