That's a great, long list, but do all of them have extensions for phpBB?

Imgur is the best I've seen, but would always like to find the best.

Actually, it does have thumbnails
Can you give me an example? Uploading to Imgur and getting both URIs: the one to the website of my picture and the one for the thumbnail?

No, and I thought you were asking for hosters only. It's a list aimed for people not being bound to a specific board but who instead upload pictures on their own and then post the appropriate BBCodes on more than one board. From my experience such extensions cause more work than they prevent - every once in a while the remote website layout is changed and the extension probably breaks.

Valid point, but in the 5+ years of my forum, and even after changing extensions, all images still manage to work.

I think we had to get a dev to run a script to change the urls at one stage, but I can't imagine not being able to offer our members a way to easily upload images.

On our site, with the Imgur extension, you just click a button, choose your image and hit 'submit' and boom, it's perfectly embedded for you in your post, right where you want it.

Sure, using a random image from Imgur homepage:

Original image: https://i.imgur.com/LwqR0Ih.jpg

Thumbnails that does not keep proportions: Thumbnails that keep proportions: You can see it in action, add this in a post and see the preview:

Thanks alot, I've updated my list (however, not the screenshot so far - as you can see from all the columns Imgur still disqualifies from my priorities).
