    If I have understood correctly here, I can not upload pictures to this forum.

    I can link to photos stored elsewhere, such as Photobucket or Picasa, only.

    I can't just upload from my computer and have them stored on this site, correct?

    If that's true, I have to ask, why?

    Most of the time, any photo linked to photobucket over about 2 years old, is broken. When people move their photos around, the links no longer point to the right place. This is inevitable.

    That means that loss of reference pictures is inevitable. Why is that SOP here? Is it a cost thing?

    Because this site is heavy on pictures. If you were able to upload the pictures here they would greatly slow down the server here. The load would increase by a factor of at least 100, perhaps as much as 1000.

    I cant seem to find the right link in photo bucket to place the image in the message. Any pointers? I copy and pasted the link next to "img". Is there something I need to modify to include the image?

    They have made some changes. Currently, if you double click the picture you want to post a new page comes up. on the right is a box with different forms of linking. Left click on the IMG line and it should show that it has been copied. You can then "paste" that line in your posting.

    Try it here first.
