Best Free Image Hosting To Post Photos To Forum

I used to use Photo bucket, but I understand it is now a paid site. Are there any free, reliable options to post viewable photos to a thread without having to click a link?. If free is not a good options, what recommendation would you make for a paid hosting service?

Thank you for your help!

I use "Flicker" which I think is part of Yahoo. So if you have a Yahoo account you may have access to flicker already (but I am not 100% sure of that).

SmugMug has worked wonderfully for me...

Hey there everyone - thank you so much for your replies. I hopped onto Imgur and was able to post some pics to a thread I started. Played around with the app a bit, turns out I ended up spending some time reading posts from the "categories I was interested in" and had some laughs. I tried posting photos/drawings and it worked well, but I was unable to get the [img] code from my phone app - I had to be on the computer to use it. While this isn't a real issue, I am curious if any of the others (smugmug, flickr) that were mentioned, are able to generate [img] coding on the phone app?

Thank you!

I have the same issue with Imgur trying to post from my phone. These days I use my phone 100% of the time to browse online. I'm not a fan of Tapatalk so I won't be using that.
