      I did google searches...and hotlinked...I don't think it's too bad because it won't get all that much traffic smile

          TamCorposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          You should be able to--the way I've always done it on other forums was to download my pics into Photobucket.com, then use the URL from there...

          I'm guessing it'd work the same way here?

          Nice to see a more positive thread than the others out there this morning, yikes..

            k@riposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            I was going to suggest Photobucket.com also.  You can upload your pics and if you use the "IMG" code, you can just copy and paste to here.  I think there is a way to make the pics private so that others cannot post them, but I'm not positive.
