So many of you post some of the nicest pictures on this site and you do it with the greatest of ease, but I just can not figure how to do it. I use Picasa on my computer for editing pictures and would love to use Picasa as the host site to post my pictures but nothing from the Picasa tutorial instructions on the technical forum seems to give me any help.
Is Picasa a difficult site to use or is it me? (I'm sure it's probably me) Or, is there a better host site I should be using?
I would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks

I use Picassa. It does a lot more than I use it for, like photo editing and stuff, but for basic uploading it's good and has excellent privacy settings. Now that Google is pushing Google+ and trying to integrate Picassa for G+ users, you do need to pay attention to the privacy settings if you're posting any embarrassing photos, which I'm sure you aren't. (If you don't join G+, it's much simpler.)
Photobucket is probably the most widely used, and is very simple to operate. I don't bother to sort my photos into sub-folders or even name them most of the time. I just dump them all in one big "album".
One of the things I like best about Photobucket is that after you've uploaded your photos, if you hover your pointer over the picture you want to post here, several boxes appear below the image, and one of them is "IMG code" which is what this forum uses. You just click on the box, the code is copied auto-magically, and you can just paste it into the "Quick Reply" at the bottom of topic page without having to use the "Advanced Post Form" at all. It makes replying with a photo quicker and easier.
I don't think that's unique to Photobucket, though. Many others do the same thing, but I still like it and use it a lot.
I use Webshots and have for years. No cost, almost unlimited storage space. (When you reach the limit, you just open another file). Unlike other photo hosts, there is never a time limit or bandwidth capacity issue to deal with. When you post your pictures in the forums, they will still be there in a few years.
