Nice Transalp ....
Pictures , you can upload picture by attaching by using the attachment tab below the text window , it does limit size and the system should resize to save space .
The usual flickr , photo bucket linking is recommended to basically save space on the server but we do have a lot more space on the new hosting company.
But I have no problem with direct uploading at the moment because of the member numbers , may change if we have a dramatic increase in members posting and uploading ..
