    Hi there,

    I'm a forum noob. Hope some of you can help me out with how to share images on the forums. I'm looking for a way to do this without sharing the image publicly on Facebook, imgur, or some such. Where do you host your images?

    And is it possible to share an image using your phone? I got an android phone and seem to unable to. I copy the image URL and use the image tool provided here. Everything looks ok, but the image will not show up. Any tips?

    I have tried googling.

    Thank you in advance!

    You can set semi private album settings on Imgur if you don't want it to be completely public but still sharable, that's the one I generally use for things. :cheese
    I know you said not Imgur but as long as you got the right settings I don't find it all that bad

    Thanks, Yenie Sedai! I don't mind using Imgur at all. I'm just not familiar with it. Once I tried sharing a hidden image and I thought it didn't work, but I might be mistaken. I only find the hidden/public one, not a semi one. Could someone just confirm if they see the image I share below, please? :lol :$

    I am assuming those are your puppers and they are adorable!

    I see puppies! <3
    There's three setting on albums on Imgur unless they changed things since I last used it, should be something like hidden but not private
