I go back and delete old images, assuming most people won’t go back to old threads except when researching an old subject.

That’s one way to do it also premium members get a lot more space but it is a one time $40 expense to become a premium member..

Please don't do this. Many times, an image is crucial to the context or provides the proverbial 1000 words of description. --and all the more so if it's an old post containing an irreplaceable image from a member who's moved on and can't be contacted for more info.

As someone said, use an external service that doesn't expire images like IMGUR or POSTIMG (that one is new to me; I'll have to try it).

The problem with these external services is that they go belly up or they hold images hostage when they decide to "monetize" them.

Or go Premium here, which looks like a good deal being just a one-time fee.

I did when Tinypic.com images stopped showing up due to it not being an encrypted site.

No, you don’t have to do any of that at all. You open up an account at a photo storage site, upload your photos, then embed the link to whichever image you want to show up in your post and you are done.

The procedure has been outlined many times here and on other sites. If you search the site you will find many examples of how to do it and what works the best.

You can embed images in the forum several ways but I like to just use the
code where xxxx= the url of your image from your image storage provider. That way the full size image just magically shows up in your post - no visible links or thumbnails to click on.

Like this

in front and at the end of the link this is the result.
