Well I can't make Photobucket work. I tried following the procedure on Old Classic Cars but the screen is completely different. I have previously used it with difficulty. The Morris Register website has a simple system similar to others as mentioned above. I gave up in disgust, it certainly does not qualify for the KISS principle.

Apart from the obvious danger with any free hosting that they are also free to hold you to ransom like Photobucket I think Penman's choice of https://postimg.org/ is a good one.

It has a significant advantage over the free Photobucket in that you can very quickly scan through all your stored images whereas in PB you had to wade through pages of them rather slowly.

I can't recommend Flickr too highly, but then it does work automatically with Apple devices. It looks better and works better than than of the others I've tried and changes have been improvements.

I do nearly everything on an iPad or phone and rarely ever turn my MacBook Pro on.

Maybe I discarded Flickr too soon. OK, I think I'm getting the hang of it.

I'll second that. I've just uploaded an image and posted it in Historic Aviation; all completed painlessly in no time at all.

Hi Paul,

When you are on the reply screen you should hit the Img button (above the reply box) just before you paste your image link. Then hit it again after pasting the link.

Peter

but without the space between the link and the [/img]

Thanks Peter, still can't do it on the iPad, but it's not too much of a chore to do it on the PC.
