I use a free imgur account.  They've made recent changes that make some things more difficult, but the editor seems to have improved.

As long as you can get free accounts, I recommend you try a variety of sites.  It really is a matter of personal preference.  They all should have the ability to generate the links you need to post in the forum.

Thanks. Already tried imgur but I can't even get them to upload to the app. Wonder if they censored it because it was pics of mags.

Ive had no censoring going on with imgur, and all my gun pics in the classifieds are embedded from imgur.

Maybe give some details about the pics you try to upload.

Are they on your phone?  Computer?  On a website?

What formats?  JPEG?  TIFF?  RAW?

What's the size of the image in pixels?

What's the file size in bytes?

Imgur used to have an option to select an image size during upload, so big pictures were reduced upon uploading.  I haven't found that feature again since the site upgrade.  Now you have to make sure the image is the size you want before uploading.  I have a problem using the imgur editor to reliably change the images size after uploading.

More input ...

I use my phone to take most pictures. My phone can reduce the high resolution pix to smaller files. For this forum, I would say anything over 1000x1000 pixels is unnecessary. In fact, 500x500 is not too bad. I like jpg format. If you keep it small, maybe no need to use an image hosting service. Just attach directly like these ducks. This pic is about 1000x800 pixels.

3 mb jpgs. Going to resize and try again, but didn't work last time I resized and shrank data size. Imgur won't let upload a thing.

I don't see any problem with the 3mb or jpg format.

What o/s and browser are you using?  pc? mac?  android?  IOS?

The problem has to be on your side of the equation unless your account is restricted.
