Nope this forum is great you can post right from your computer. If I join a forum that requires a hosting site, I never go back. I like to keep my photos on my computer not at a third party hosting site that wants me to pay them to host my own personal photos that I can keep on my computer for free. I know some are free but they all end up charging eventually. Or you suddenly find all your photos missing from their site. etc. etc. etc. If you can't tell I'm not a fan of photo hosting sites. By the way welcome to our new member.
