Digging up the dead as I'm testing a new free hosting option....
That one appears to be a poor choice since it won't produce a reasonably sized link to an actual image (a file that ends in an image file type just as .jpg, .png, etc.).

Agree... I was hoping it would allow me to do hot links to thumbs, etc, but no dice... I was all hot for the 10gb cap, but I'll have to use a better alternative.

The best way to post pictures is to upload them to some photo-hosting site. If you don't use a photo-hosting site, try thinimg.com or imgur.com, you don't need to create an account there, you can just drag & drop pictures to it, and they have apps to upload pictures straight from your phone as well.

Once you've uploaded a picture, you'll have a URL for it. Put that URL in between IMG tags in your post, like this:

[img]https://i.imgur.com/ovthCi3.gif[/img]

Or like this:

ovthCi3.gif


That will give you a nice photo in your post, kinda like this:

No idea what you're doing... there are numerous sharing options and types of links to generate from viewer to thumbnails play with it and sort it out.
