Myster recommended Imgur as the website to host the images.  As per the first post it worked but on the Imgur site the image was rather small and hence the text becomes impossible to read.
"Imgur is home to the most awesome images on the Internet. As such, we're the perfect destination for you to upload and share cool images with the rest of the world.

However, this means that Imgur is not designed for hosting all images and there are some things we do not allow.

Can I use Imgur to host images for my website, blog or forum?
You're welcome to use Imgur to host your images, as long as they do not break our Terms of Service.
If you'd like to add images to your website or blog, we recommend using Imgur's embed unit to easily make the post visible. More information on finding the embed link can be found here. It will look something like this: "

When I read information on the case and come across a photo:

1.  Make a note in a Word document describing some of the features. Add source URL.  Add Name of photo after saving as per step 2.

2.  Take a copy and make a Paint file of the photo.  Name the photo.  Put name into Word document.

3.  When discussing a topic see if anything is on file, search both forums for photos.  (perform steps 1 and 2 where required.)

4.  Upload relevant files to Imgur and then link to the thread under discussion.

(It seems that the preparation steps 1, 2 and 3 are the key to being successful do perform step 4.)

IMGUR  is pronounced Imager.   IMG  = image and  UR = er   Image + er or  Imager or IMGUR.

I needed an area on the forum to practice uploading Bamber photos without it corrupting the rest of the Clouseau thread.
I have already lost 2 pages of posts.

When the meaning of something is lost, it's referred to as "losing the thread".
