Picture Uploads

I put a question recently, that really would be explained better with my picture, but NO you have to first get them hosted somewhere first.

So Suggestion: The ability to upload from your own computer, Many other forums have this ability why not Cybertech help.

Probably because those forum "owners" don't mind paying for excessive bandwidth or server fees.

You don't have to upload pictures from your computer, there's plenty of "free" web hosting services that offer "hot linking".

Here's what I have, easy peasy to use...

Webs.com

as far as I know, you can still use attachments in the forum. just scroll down to where it says attach files.

Why would I want to upload my pictures to a host site free or otherwise, just to link to them.
My pictures are on my computer.

who are you replying to. if my post, as I previously said, you can use files from your computer as attachments. but then I have been a member here so long that I forget if you must have a subscription as previously mentioned or not.
