To my knowledge the ONLY way to EMBED photos in a message before was by inserting the url of the photo file (on another site) between "img" tags. The only other way to post photos was to post them as ATTACHMENTS. If you did it that way, they would only appear as thumbnail images which the viewer would have to click to open. I'm talking about embedding photos. On the previous site, you had to use a url and "img" tags. Now, I can embed photos directly by uploading them. Heck, you don't even have to upload them... you can drag and drop or copy / paste them now. Easy-peasy.Curious. Why did you have to host them on a third party site before?
All of mine were uploaded directly to here after being resized. This new format is easier when it comes to that though.
