    I use SmugMug. Good service and very functional site.

    Plus it's a family-owned business. That appeals to me.

    I just posted a picture using Picasa.
    Took a few to figure it out, but I got it.
    It seems to me there should be an easier way....

    In another forum I'm on, folks just couldn't understand how to post pics. Here's the tutorial I did up for them:
    Alright gang, here it is: a step by step to post pictures on the forum.


    Step 1: Go to http://register.photobucket.com/
    [​IMG]
    Step 2: Come up with a username and password.
    [​IMG]
    Step 3: fill in the rest of the information

    Click "Skip" on the next page

    Alright! Now you've signed up, and can post pictures to your photobucket account. Do do that:

    Click "upload" and chose your photo(s)
    [​IMG]
    If you want to crop your photo I'll talk about that later. Click return to album after you're done adding information to your photos (optional)
    [​IMG]
    Click on the photo you want to post, look in the bottom left of the page.
    Click the "Img Code" link once and it will flash the word "copied".
    [​IMG]
    You can now right click on this forum in a post to paste the link, or hit CTL+V.

    ALTERNATIVELY: From your main page, mouse over your photo, highlight the IMG Code (click and drag) and copy (CTL+C) then paste.

    Tried IS and TinyPic there - TP wants me to enter one of those crazy captcha things each upload, can only make out one in 3 of them!Tried registering, and it registered me on Photobucket, but the subsequent email/password combo doesn't ACTUALLY work on tinypic... weird. :)

    IS works a treat.

    Just got my HEST back from Linda, the blade was resting against the spacer on the back of the knife. Looks like lionsteel sent out a new one.

    Great customer service.

    I'm a fan of imgur myself. Not incredibly thumbnail-friendly though I suppose!
