    *While taking photos with my iPhone 8*
    I take a medium to wide original picture then crop the picture only showing the subject. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.

    When Photobucket screwed us, and people were recommending IMGUR, it was pointed out that using them for 3rd party posting was a violation of their terms of service. Has that changed?

    I haven't had any complaints with imgur. Kinda clumsy taking pics, then moving them to my computer in order to get them on imgur, but that's my own fault for not wanting the app on my phone.

    @resinguy - I don't know if that status has or hasn't changed, but that is well worth looking into so as to not have history repeat itself.

    I use the imgur app. If I am in violation of any of their terms it's because I haven't read any of their stinking terms. :D

    I use an app on my phone called Lit Photo. It shoots them back to my phone's photo gallery. Then I upload them from my phone. It gives different options on how to go about resizing them. Some ways work really good. Some ways make the pic look like crap. I don't do it often enough to remember which is the right way, so it normally takes me a few tries. Lol!

    I use

    Unlike Imgur, they specifically allow for posting images to forums.

    You can create an account (for free) (which I've done and find is really good), or you can just post an image anonymously without creating an account.

    Under sharing for each image, use their 'direct link' option - copy and paste that address into a bladeforums post using the 'image' button, or paste it directly into the post text and bookend it with the code provided by Lex2006 above.

    I use Imgur now because resizing creates low resolution images. It works . . . for the moment.

    I will try the app referred by @Currawong though because I've been uncomfortable with the Imgur terms from jump street.
