So, I've been posting here for a while and Ive always struggled with linking images in my posts. I know the process, it usually is a matter of where the image comes from I suppose.
In the beginning I used to link from deviant art, which worked fine, but then my job blacklisted the site. I do most of my posting at work. So that was out.
Then I started posting from my Google Plus posts, which I thought was working but now, after someone commented that my entire post was red X's I find that when I look at my posts in Chrome, the photos I link work just fine, but if I look at my post in internet explorer, all my pics are red X'd.
So...I pose this question to my brethren and sistren:
What method of linking photos works best for you?
I made an imageshack account, but dont wanna pay. Photobucket, ugh...ad pop ups every two minutes.
Google Drive doesnt seem to work, nor various other social media.
Am I missing an obvious one?
(whats even more frustrating is that I cant go back and fix them because my edit option goes away after a period of time, even when I created the thread...grrrrr)

I use Imgur from time to time and don't really have any problems with it.

It was the redux post. Didn't see the other one.

I have a free Wordpress blog... I upload images there, and link from there all the time.
