Personally I dont like attachments. They dont showcase images as well as hosted pictures. Hosting sites are PostImage ( free ) , Flickr and Photobucket. The last two by subscription though they act as storage as well. Now what happens when you no longer pay subscription I really am not sure. PostImage is free but in the early days rewrote the coding losing millions of posted images. Here I use Photobucket . Images posted as medium. My other forum I post large. Oddly they both appear the same size. Photobucket had a poor reputation originally but has vastly improved under new ownership. Steve Clarks image comes via Flickr. If you click the link it takes you back to his Flickr account where you see all of his other photos. Now that may be a good or bad thing. Dont bother with mine there are 8,120 images going back 60 years. ( The question at the Mendip quiz ). Flickr shows image stats and images can be set for various privacy levels.
