I use Flikkr
Originally I used the free version, although I have so many hosted photos in my blog that when they did a great offer I went Paid (Pro)

Peter

I checked them out and currently Pro is £16.99 a quarter.

Was this their offer you took up ?

I've been using Imgur for a while now, it's free and relatively straight forward.

https://imgur.com

Click on the green 'New Post' button at the top left hand and download image.
Then cursor over top right of your image gives you 'copy link' and three dots.
Click on three dots to edit image, change size etc. Then 'save' image. (this might take a moment if your connection is slow.)
Then back to the 3 dots and click on 'get share links'.
Click on 'BBCode (Forums)' copy link button and then paste to DDk. :)

I found the Postimage image quality to be poor. Often lines break up and pixilate.

It entirely depends on the resolution and file size of the original image. That is a classic example of a small file being uploaded. The majority I upload are 1MB minimum.

Thanks Keith, that's great, I didn't realise what was going on there.

I might go back to using Postage, it's nice and easy. :-P
