I'm new to the DM's Craft Forum. I would like to post some photos of my crafts that I've completed so far. I read in the FAQ to use an image repository site. I've never used one before so I'm not sure about which one is best or easiest to use with this forum. Of the three listed:
Imageshack, Photobucket, and Imgur,
which one is the best to use? Has anyone encountered problems on one more than the others? Is there another one that is better than the three listed above?
Also, I've noticed that posts with photos show up one of two ways - either as embedded images within the posts (complete with captions) or as url links to the repository site of the poster's choice.
Once I have my own repository, how do I create a post with images so that they show up as embedded photos?
Any advice a veteran user can give on these issues is greatly appreciated.
A lot of people on this forum originally used free image storage at Photobucket. However, in 2017 Photobucket starting charging for any use. Charging quite a lot, apparently. So forum posters either had to subscribe to Photobucket or transfer all their images to another image site - and re-link all their photos if they wanted people to still be able to see them. A lot of people moved to Imgur, which is why the thread mentioned in your message above was created.
If you subscribe to Photobucket and want to use that, there is an older thread somewhere that explains how to link images stored at Photobucket.
I've been crafting for just over a year, now, and figured it's time for me to see how I'm doing, as well as seek ways to improve from the community here. I have to get photos of my crafts out there to do that.
Looks like I'll be taking a gander at Imgur. Thanks again for your help.

margaret: Putting this here because I don't know where else to post it - the site is not letting me post responses today. And it wouldn't let me log out and relog either. Not sure what is going on

Draklith: have your internet settings changed? first thing i"d check, sometimes when you install a new program or something, it will change your settings

margaret: It eventually resolved itself. The computer did update at some point this past week, but I never changed anything in the browser settings to resolve the issue. This site just seems to get cranky with my computer sometimes
