Wanting to post pics in classifieds

My photobucket account went away when they started charging and it seems this site does not allow me to post from my computer (or if it does, I do not know how)
What is a decent free host site so I can upload pics to it and then to here?
TIA!

Getting an error message saying upload failed - these are jpg files. Would it be because maybe they are too large? If not, what might be another cause?
Thanks again for helping out an old guy with ten thumbs

Out of curiosity, how big were the files?

Our limit was set when storage was more of an issue than it is nowadays. We may be looking at bumping it up a little.

BTW, Irfanview 64 is a great free app for downsizing files while keeping the image quality good.
