Default Uploading Photos?

Does this forum not facilitate putting a picture in a post? I have seen images, but they were mods/admins.

If have a .jpeg elsewhere, can I have it show up in a message here? Or can I only link to it?

Thanks!

Image posting is restricted to SJG Staff members.

Anyone else can only post links to the image. If you do, please leave a good text description of what you're linking to.

If I figure out a public site to upload a photo, can I have the photo display on this forum? I am thinking — Nope!

At the bottom of every page, I just now noticed BB code is on and, sadly, “IMG is off”.

Copy/paste from that page: http://forums.sjgames.com/images/sta.../forum_new.gif

Just shows the URL.

SJG presumably doesn't want to deal with hosting, bandwidth, or questionable content issues.

Does it really matter if the image isn't inline? If you've linked it and described what it is, then people can check it for reference.

Thumbnails attachments would be okay. No, I donít really need inline.

Yes, but using some other board and then linking just feels wrong. It is what I have done for now.

There's plenty of free image and file hosting services out there you could use instead. Here's a few: imgur, Google Photos, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive.
