Until I can find another decent embeddable resource, postimages.org/ will allow you to post an image for free and copy the generated link. I'm still on the hunt for a better solution. Hopefully I can get some time away from work this weekend.

Hey Jeff, sorry for the delay. I've found another hosting solution for adding images, though I would recommend users finding their own hosting alternatives to ensure content doesnt get purged. You can click the 'add attachment' button and anything you post will go to our forum's file storage and should be safe from being deleted, but it can become costly as the need arises to add on storage space. I have considered migrating what I can to a new system, but if I were to do that, I would want to engineer that soulution from the ground up so it will better suit our needs. In any case, there is now a new button that uses a different image host. Its pretty easy to use, just click it, drag an image to it, then upload and it will automatically add the link to your post. Cheers!

Hey Stephan, is the new button not working for you? I had to change to a new hosting solution because the old one seems to have dropped support for anonymous user uploads to their site. The new one seems to be working for the time being. What issues are you experiencing?
Is there a way to limit the posted image size so they automatically shows up the same size in a thread? It is quite annoying to have to manually downsize every image in Photoshop before posting them, if not they become so big that you have to scroll to see the whole image...

Added a thing that allows you to regain the old functionality as well. If you really want an image to post in its original size (up to the max width of the container), you can add a class to the generated image BBCode and set it to 'huge' and it should circumvent the new behavior.
