Never thought there was an issue hosting it off site to be honest
It's generally a good practice to host elements important for your design (such as header, logo, banners, other images) on your own server. Quite many reasons behind it as well, first off tinypic being slow could also slow down loading on your website, second if tinypic is down that image will not load for viewers, unlike if its on your own server it will always load unless your whole site itself is down, etc. If bandwidth is your concern then just optimizing the file size and uploading it shouldn't have a negative impact on bandwidth :)

Edit: Additionally I notice the loading time, did a look up on your host as well, I just have one suggestion, don't fall for the "unlimited" advertising by hosts for diskspace/bandwidth! Majority (not all) hosts who offer unlimited services overcrowd their servers and you face long loading times/unresponsive sites due to so many customers on one server.

Would like to thank you for the info on the hosting images on site, they load so much better now. i did have some trouble figuring out how to link on my hosting exactly being new to this. But happy with the fact it seems to load so much faster. Also moved site host which has been a great move. Thank you for anyone who posted feedback and help so far, always happy to improve :D

If you don't mind me asking, what host have you switched to? The site seems to function fast and smooth. Looks great too. :)
