datadyne pointed out that if you add an "h" to the end of the imgur url (before the ".jpg" or whatever) it automatically shrinks it to "huge" size, which fits archBoston's size standard.

For example, uploading a pic to imgur might give you a link that ends "...qhB7b.jpg". Adding an "h" gives you "...qhB7bh.jpg", which you can post as a resized image.

I recommend flickr. It gives me literally a free terabyte of space! Use the BB Code to share whatever size you want.

You can do it manually like that or let Imgur actually append the suffix on for you in the size dropdown in the generate image links window. Helpful when you have multiple images.

Photobucket is shutting down their free hosting services: https://www.buzzfeed.com/katienotopo...mJo#.xbAkjEPMb

Lots of old posts on this forum (and elsewhere) will become unreadable.
