With the imminent demise and troubles with tinypic.com, do you guys have any suggestions for another free image hosting site? or how do you post images on the forum?

I normally just use paint on the computer. It's really easy to resize the photo and it also condenses the file size right down.

Imgur is great, just drag and drop images onto the upload page and copy the bbcode into your post

Ditto , , , , and in paint, you can even save the pic in different formats if you wish, with "save as"

imgur is great for all platforms. i'm on a macbook which has an application called preview where you can crop/resize images among other things. from there it's just drag and drop.

Sounds like the best option for me.. I'm on a Mac so don't have paint

Can't see how to do it on Imgur though?
