I use Twitter whenever I need to post pics. Just tweet out the pic and copy the url to the pic. Couldn’t be easier.

All my chip images and and trip report photos are on photobucket. they converted to a paid service a couple years ago. It's no fun to pay $60/yr for the hosting, but I can't imagine breaking alllllll those links. I wonder why tinypic didn't try a paid solution? Even on their way out the door, some folks would probably pay a small amount to preserve existing linked content.

Tiny pic has been my go -to from the start. This sux.

But I'm interested in ams288's twitter solution.

Does it embed on here or just a link?

There are times that I would like to post a pic but it is such a pain. For those of you that post pics often do you do it from phone or computer?

Yes, posting photos here is a bit awkward, but I understand why our forum host doesn't want to provide image hosting services.

Back before I took an early retirement in 2004, I considered doing a bit of post-retirement consulting. Eventually, I decided that the marketing portion of the work would be more than I cared for, so I never began such an effort in earnest. I did, however, create a web site with my own domain name, and I still use it to manage all of my personal email. Giving up that domain name (and email addresses) would be a nuisance now, so I continue to pay the registration and hosting fees.

I use the associated hosting services as the repository for all of the images that I post on this forum, mostly casino chips. I make the post syntax even more complicated, because each of the chips images that I post is also an active link to a larger image of the chip. Yes, it is awkward -- both getting the images stored properly at my own domain and getting them linked properly here -- but I have done it so many times now that I can handle it fairly well from a computer keyboard. Can't recall whether I have even tried to post such images directly from my phone.

I do not use twitter at all, either to post or read.

It embeds just like any other picture if you do the [img= before it.

All the pictures I posted in my recent trip report came from Twitter.

Yeah basically what I suggested doing with tapatalk.

And I certainly don't think Twitter's hosting capabilities are going anywhere.

I wonder how much hosting it would be to add that feature? I dont think there are that many pics on here but if there was hosting they may get flooded with 1000s of pics to overload them maliciously.

I use firefox and for some reason I can't see any of your twitter images unless I click on the image and open it.
