    I wasn't sure which forum to put this in.

    I'm wondering what everyone uses for online image hosting/sharing. More specifically, I'm looking for something that makes the process from taking a picture on your phone to posting the link on a message board a quick and easy process.

    I've tried Imgur - iPhone app is unstable and barely useable - I usually end up having to go on the full website on my computer to finish the process.

    And I've tried Flickr - nice iPhone integration, but it doesn't allow you to copy a plain link to your image. From what I've found you have to go on the full website and grab the "BB Code" and paste that into a message board comment. It provides a "short link" to each image, but those links don't appear to be useable on message boards as you also need to provide a "link back" to Flickr. So again, it requires me doing half the process on my phone, then the other half on my computer.

    What am I missing here - this seems like such a simple thing, I feel like I'm missing something, lol.

    CloudApp. There are a few apps in the store that hook into it.

    Hmmm...not finding much for CloudApp in the app store (for free).

    Would Drop Box work? All I want is a simple way to take a picture from my phone, upload it to a "cloud" service, then share it quickly and easily with anyone.

    I don't have enough overall experience to call it the best, but it's free and seems convenient to use. A link box offers many different formats for using online.
