    What's wrong with uploading to your forum? It's not hard from a phone (I've done it many times and I know some of my user do so too). If space it an issue then set the Maximum Attachment Image Dimensions to something like 1024 x 1024 (what I have set) to keep image file sizes small.

    I agree but my VPS plan is only 2GB.

    I hope it's a very cheap VPS plan with just 2Gb!

    Having said that, setting the dimensions I suggested will typically produce JPEGs of 100-200Kb. That'll get you 5000-10000 JPEGs stored in 1Gb of space which still leaves you space for the XenForo files and other stuff. Setting smaller dimensions e.g. 800 x 800 would allow you even more photo storage in 1Gb.

    Sorry I was wrong. I just asked. It's 2GB ram with about 100GB. I have my attachment size set at 620x620.

    Well you've got more storage space than me! Plenty of space with 100Gb, I doubt you will fill it with photos of that size.

    If you get your settings right, you shouldn't need to inconvenience your members by getting them to use an external service!

    From the stats on my forum, average image size is about 200k once uploaded and resized to 1024x768.
    Number of Attachments: 9,636
    Attachment Disk Usage (MB): 1,985.75
