I'm looking for an app that will auto upload my pics, but then allow me to link the pics directly from the hosting site.

Most cloud storage does not allow direct links, Microsoft, Google, Flickr, etc.

Right now the way I post pics on say, TMP, I post the pic on my Blog, and then link from there.

Flickr will let you use direct links and auto-uploads. All my photos are on Flickr and I post them here regularly.

One minor nuisance with Flickr: the default for auto upload is Private. But you can go into your camera roll, select all the photos, and make them public. An extra step but not that big a deal.

Do you use the BBCode?

Click the "Share" arrow and choose "Embed." Cut out all the coding, use just the image address.

I use dropbox for this. But then I also usually crop/edit them and re-upload them to imgur when posting on forums since I believe the hosting bandwidth for dropbox is eventually limited. Not that I think a wargaming sized audience would ever use that up.

Sorry - only verified members can post on the forums.
