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?
