    Then the poster is no longer a member, so you don't even have a way to contact them and ask them to fix the pictures.

    Here's a perfect example: http://g503.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=87930

    I work for a guy who is constantly asking me to research how to do stuff and I can not tell you how many forums have excellent writeups but the posters let their hosted images go and the entire thread becomes worthless. I'd say 80% of the forums I look at are worthless because anything older than 6 months is missing pictures.

    By forcing users to put their pictures here, we have better control and much lower probability of this happening.

    Unfortunately when I upload photos with this site, even though the photo is correctly oriented on my computer, it shows up in the post sideways or upside-down.

    I noticed that-I can't figure out why. I am going to go edit one of your posts and see if I can figure out why.

    Another option is to attach thumbnails. This adds the picture to the bottom of the post.

    I don't know why your pictures are sideways. This may help.

    Is anyone having problems posting picts? I'm doing the attachments like I have in the past, but everytime I upload the pictures, I'm getting an exclamation point after it and it's not letting me attach. My picts from before are still sitting there to view, but no new ones are coming in. I even resized them down, but that didn't work either. I did both bulk and basic upload.

    I tried the URL link too, and that didn't work either?

    ok.....let me try again.

    Nope, can pull one that is already in my album, but can't load a new one from my laptop. Still looks like it's loading, then onces it appears its done, I get the red exclamation after the file name.

    With the URL I get a file error popup.
