That's not the best way to do it; I believe you're limited in many ways, as the forum's server can't support a lot of pictures. I use Imgur, which has never given me problems. You can start an account for free, then upload your pic, & you'll be given links for that pic which you can use to post the pic here. I'd be glad to lead you through the process.

The 100 kB limit is one of the main reasons I here almost never upload pictures of my Playmo anymore. I donīt want to go through all the hassle (and quality-loss) to resize them to such a small size, while other platforms/forums allow for (much) larger sized pics, even when uploaded directly.
I also donīt find a photo-hosting platform to be the best solution, and therefore I donīt use it. If the hosting-platform goes down or disappears, all the pics you ever uploaded from it are gone and the links to them go dead. Also, they may start become paying at any given time.

This is true, but it's also true for everything internet. PF could vanish tomorrow. Even Google is not immortal.  :o

Sure. But nevertheless I have more confidence in forums run by dedicated fans then in commercial platforms offering free hosting.

Point taken.  :rainbow:
