Testing things out with ImgBB. Looks like you can click the "Add image to post" button just below the main post box. It brings up a window that you can use to upload an image and then puts the correct link text right into the post.

Ok, so that looks like a really good option for anyone who isn't comfortable using the bbcode tags (like the img one). This should make it much easier for many of you to post images (and it doesn't use any of my account's storage either). So, you're welcome to use that if you'd like.

Also, just fyi, images hosted in imgur are easy to get links to. You upload the image...then once it's uploaded, click on the down arrow that shows up when you hover over the image and select "Get share links". The text listed under "BBCode (Forums)" is the one to copy and then you can paste that into the post and it should show up.

For example...
