Couldn't find this is FAQ.

Is it necessary to have them hosted elsewhere, or can they be posted directly? (As in copy and paste .jpeg etc).

They need to be hosted separately and linked here.

I've always wondered; "They need to be hosted separately and linked here."

Now why in the world is that? Face Book Gaming sites are so simple! Are we all supposed to have our own blogs or, do we upload our photos to some complicated site (that I used once over a year ago and now have no idea what my password is nor how I might have uploaded my photos)? Easy is best! This is NOT easy here.

Because TMP is determined to be different (and difficult)?

TMP code is simpler and a little dated. Bob doesn't have the resources (staff, servers, $) that Facebook has available. Like comparing McDonalds to your local Diner!

Somebody has to pay for the storage to hold the photos. Upload to a free photo sharing site like Imgur or Flickr and share the link.
Facebook owns all the photos and content you post there; if you are happy for them to mine your personal data, that's fine.

I find TMP ridiculously easy to use. But then I am former IT expert with 40+ years of experience but then again I just read the more than adequate instructions.

Thanks for answers. I appreciate that it is not practical for TMP to host images. I won't use Facebook or any of its offshoots.
