Mind you, I still have no idea what you're talking about :D

The only way it could be easier is if I did it for you… ;)

there's presumably no way the forum software allows direct posts ie without a 3rd party hoster?

That is correct Rob. I was looking back through your posts to find one where you had uploaded a picture without success to see who you were using as host.
One tip is that Dropbox is useless for use with forum software for photos. Files seem fine but photos drag the whole thing to a crawl which annoys all the users.

Most of us here seem to use Photobucket and that seems to work well by having two windows open when composing a message and simply pasting in the img tags. Their software could be a bit more user friendly but it interacts with PHPBB very well when topics are being read which is where it matters.

I think Flickr is also quite good but never used it. Mike G uses IMGUR I think and that is also fine from a readers perspective.

There is actually a Photobucket plugin for the forum, but I spent a good 2 evenings trying to properly integrate it as it's for a previous version and hasn't been updated. It kind of worked but was flaky and clunky.

Let me have another look at that when I get some time…

Using Tapatalk you can post photos direct from your phone.
I also use IShack but find it easier to import my photos from there to my phone and post from it.

I use Flickr. Like all of these things, it takes a bit of getting used to and just when you have, they go and change it all.

I've got a dropbox account but I only use that to send enormous files to a mate in the States, we treat it like an ftp server essentially. I use photobucket for pics here but to be honest I hate the dam thing. The time it takes to upload photos drives me insane. Posting them here is actually the easy part, it's the terminal wait to get past all it's pop up rubbish and advertorial that drives me insane. Plus it's also very slow to perform any transaction (moving between albums and so on).

I've not tried tapatalk...any good?

Can't comment about windows but with OSX, Firefox, Adbox Plus and Tracking Blocked the upload and download times on Photobucket are acceptable.
Of course this depends on both file size and internet speeds as well.

Tapatalk is a smartphone App (and iPads etc) for accessing Forums (not just this one) - I think it's great and I now very rarely follow things on my computers.

Used to be free but not anymore I believe but well worth the money IMHO.

The only thing with Tapatalk hosting is that they are hosting your photo's, so if for some reason Tapatalk dies, or the forum stops working with it, or whatever, then your photos have gone! But in fairness the likelihood of that is slim.

Not really Mark as the photos are still in my phone or backup library if I've deleted them from it.
