Without bemoaning the point further, here are some solutions for our Membership so affected. If anyone in our community has a great solution, please post below - let's all help your fellow members get their collections online again NOTE: Recently I was informed our Forum appears to not allow Google+ Image hotlinking, I am looking into this.
Start an account, upload images and copy paste the URL into your topic. Our site software will resize if necessary. Thank you Sean!
