Yeah, sorry I wasn't in a spot to respond in more detail. Imgur is a nice and easy way to host and link images, but make sure you change your settings up automatically upload as private and not public.

Another handy trick is that the image url can be linked in different sizes just by changing the last letter of the url.

example: image(add letter here).jpg
s = Small Square (9090)
b = Big Square (160160)
t = Small Thumbnail (160160)
m = Medium Thumbnail (320320)
l = Large Thumbnail (640640)
h = Huge Thumbnail (10241024)

I just started using postimage.org
Insanely easy, even provides links to cut and paste into your post.
It's so easy that I'm concerned...whats the deal with it? Is it loading me up with spyware and viruses??

I've tried that on forums to link photos all I get is a link and no photo like Photobucket used to.

There is a tab called sharing on the left of google photos.
Click that and create a share album.
When you have a picture or pictures in a share album, click the picture to see it only. Then right mouse click and select "copy image location".
This will be the link for your image.

imgur is the easiest and it's what I use, when you upload a photo just make sure you don't also share it with the community.
Unless you want to share gun photos.

Yup, I've been using it since Facebook went mega-commie with picture-links.

My go-to, AND no account needed, but pictures expire if not viewed/referenced as I recall...

Tinypic is the photo sharing site that I've used and found easiest. But it is still kind of a hassle.

But I do wish posting photos was easier for everyone here.
