Hi guys. tedivm (our server admin) has made me aware of an image hosting provider that doesn't suck. They allow you to directly link to images and their pages contain no ads when viewing uploaded content unlike most other (and in my own opinion, terrible) image hosting services.

It's called imgur.com. Check it out, use it, and tell your friends.

I always prefer users just use the attachment function on the forum to upload images in posts, but if they must use offsite hosting, that's the one I'd prefer.

Thanks for sharing. Some eye catchy words while reading their FAQ :P

How many images can I upload?

Infinity. Good luck trying to reach it, you never will.

Yep, and tedivm also informed me that it allows you to link directly to images too, so no worries about having to have people jump through hoops to see a pic, just embed the image if you like or link directly to the image's URL :P.

For capturing images or portions of your screen, etc, I can definitely recommend the FREE little program with loads of features called ScreenHunter 5.1 Free. They also offer one with more bells and whistles for $ but the free one works GREAT. :P

In Vista and Windows 7 there is a great built Snipping Tool:

I've been using Tinypic for a while for images, but their CAPTCHA system was always in the way. This one is nice!

Yes there are "Limits" to Free Accounts but the pic's can also be deleted which makes room for more
