You can host them here.
Be sure to choose 640x480 for message boards & then use the img BBcode tags to embed the direct link you get. Smile

You started to lose me at 640x480, and then completely lost me img BBcode tags.

PM me if you think it will help, but do not underestimate my cack-handedness at such matters Smile

Not just me then. Sadly the comparative difficulty of posting pics here compared to the one click ease of sharing stuff on social media is one of the reasons why it's a bit quieter here these days Sad

It's very easy:

1.
Upload (or host) the picture to a hosting site such as https://postimages.org/ or http://www.666kb.com/ or any other.
There are lots such pages. All free of charge and many without having to give any personal data or create an account.
If there is an option asking about the size of the picture choose 640x480 as that is not too large and not too small for a forum page.

2
Then you get a link like
https://s33.postimg.cc/q23aizae7/tsom-2007-white.jpg (on postimage chose "direct link") or
http://666kb.com/i/du0yh6yz12u50iups.jpg (on 666kb chose URL)

3
img BBcode tags - these are funny words that mean nothing but you put the link in the middle of these brackets [img]here[/img] ... and the picture will appear ...

DONE:

(postimage) ... .. (666kb)

... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy ... give it a try. You can use that link to post the picture in other forums and on social media as well ... Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy ...



More importantly ... Smile ...

The Sisters played Amsterdam Melkweg in 1984, and the Los Angeles Palace in 1985.

Just cooked breakfast to the sounds of Ghostrider/Sister Ray from the Amsterdam show. The best moment of their best show? Certainly one of the stand-out moments that I've heard by them, either in terms of on record, bootlegged or at a show.

Hah, yeah. The Amsterdam gig was quite a good one, got recorded and bootlegged ... Very Happy ... other than the one in L.A. 1985 ... Smile ...

Plus, if you click the 'quote' button to the right of someone's post, it will bring up the coding for that post, so you can see how things should be laid out, which is always a good help! Very Happy

It should be, but if you have alternatives you can suggest, please go ahead & let us know.
Here's another one that's free & works great for forums

No probs.
There's also always the gallery here. But if you want to then add those images to posts, you'd need to resize them first in case they start causing wide-ons.

Yes. The pictures are stored there forever ... Very Happy ...

This is another such hosting service available in English, German, Spanish and Turk language ... Very Happy ...

Btw, one can also use the URLs of photos from sites like Google Drive or other cloud services, afaik ...
or basically from anywhere on the web ... like the one down here, the URL of which I've captured from a well-known lovely Sisters blog ... Mr. Green Laughing ...



However, some hosting sites like Imageshak and Photobucket do delete pictures automatically after a while or when it seems suitable to them, which has already left quite a few nasty empty spaces in older forum posts, unfortunately ... Sad ... however, another reason for the disappearance of pictures is also the closing down of so many old fan websites on geocities and other services some years ago ... the pictures used and linked to there have also got lost ... Sad ... let's hope it won't happen again to the wonderful, wide and coloured blog world of today with the next advancement in technology ... Confused ...

You got it Debs.
Just be sure to have it resized to about 500x500px or it'll give us all a wide on Wink

Top tip though. If it's on google images, you can use that url too & might save you some graft Very Happy

right-click on image, copy image location/adress, >>post a reply box: [img]<right-click, paste>[/img].
