Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

1) Host your pictures, upload them here: http://tinypic.com/

2) For each - copy the URL (link)

3) And post it here inside with your kite description

I suggest one kite per post .... but its up to you

Alright use imgur.com

1) Upload image

2) Pull down menu => Get share link

3) BBCode (Forums) - link copy box

4) paste the copy text here, thus

Or, choose Additional Options...

(below the Post Reply dialog box)

And upload from your computer

Drawback of this method is that the photo only shows a small preview until you click it. And these uploaded images get pruned to save space after a year or so...

I was/am a longtime Google photos/Picasa fan and use that a lot, by I am starting to like using imgur as I can easily upload a picture on mobile and then grab the link to the direct image on my phone to use in the forum super easily (in mobile imgur ap you can hold down on the image itself and it offers you the direct link!)

If you upload to the forum and attach the image instead of hot linking it keep in mind that those images get scrubbed off and removed after a period of time.

Hosting in flickr, photos, imgur, or self hosting is best

This method works well with iPhone/iPad.

File size used to be 100k which was challenging, but now it's 500k.

I've just increased the size of the preview (thumbnail)
also be aware that images may be removed after 60 days to help preserve storage space on the server
