Default Requesting help with uploading photos to a post

I need direction to the dummies guide on how to upload pictures to my post. I have not done this in quite a while and am just lost.

TIA

Your photos have to be hosted on a site like Flickr, Smugmug, or Photobuck that allows direct linking. Google and Apple iCloud might but I don't know.

You then get the URL of the image from that sight (they will usually give you different size options) and place that url between the IMG tags or in the box opened when you click the photo button next to the quote button in the menu bar for a post.

If you can say which site you you use for your photos, we can give more specific directions.

I use postimage.org. just go to that site, upload a photo and copy the direct link. Hit the image button on your post and paste there. Works great

Guess that is the problem, not using a photo hosting site at the moment, guess I need to choose one. Are there any free ones? We took hundreds and hundreds of photos and many hours of video this past week. I wouldn't bore you with all of it, just some of the special ones. And, most are of the Grandson, so you could get bored very easily. There are some food ones, too.

Postimage is free and not terribly hard to use.

I still have a basic account with Photo Bucket, but I honestly never use it. I was directed to postimages.org during our Photo Bucket boycott, and Iíve been really pleased with it!

OK, opened an account with Postimage. What is the best image size to select?
