What website does everyone use for hosting their images? I have been using facebook but would rather use another site, mainly because I have quit facebook.

Hosting them for what? For posting on the forums? You can upload images directly to these forums, and then you don't have to host them anywhere.
If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

Ok, so I attached the images in my last post on my build thread but when I click on the images they are very large, is there a way for me to limit the size of the images? If one of the moderators want to edit my post to fix it they can and I will look at what you did to fix it, or someone can tell me here and I will fix it in the morning.

No, there isn't. You just have to resize them before you upload them, to a sensible size (1280x768?). The forums obviously create small (640x480-ish?) versions, but when you click on them you get the whole thing you uploaded.

Ok I'm stumped. HOW do you upload images to be displayed in a post? I started writing a post for a new topic in the DIY board with the intent of added a few screenshots. When I came to add the images no "upload attachment" button and the "image" button only added tags for an image url, not to upload an image.

I have checked the FAQ's but that just talks about if the administrator has allowed image upload or not.

What am I missing?

Cheers.

Ahh crap. So busy looking for the classic "upload" button where I'm used to seeing it in other places I have been posting in recently (in the editor toolbar) that I missed the link. :?

Thanks for picture @Awesomeness.
