Welcome to the forums! The Willamette Valley is definitely on my list of places for a photographic trip. I almost journeyed there in 2017 after attending a conference in Portland. Instead, I ventured east through the Columbia River Valley on to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone national parks, then back west through western Montana, Coeur d'Alene, and then Mount Rainer before returning to Portland. (I arrived at Mount Saint Helens too late in the day, unfortunately.)

Like you wish to do, I never upload my images here. I prefer to post links to images on my website. One technique I often use is to select text in my posts, for example, a photograph titled "Etched" made during that 2017 trip, and then use the Insert Link icon above the message box to paste the URL.

My erassingly newbie question: is it possible to share photos from my own online web/file server in posts to this forum? For example, to share the photo from this url:

When surrounding the url with the appropriate \[img\] tags, the photo seems to display just fine for me -- but only when I am logged in. Otherwise the photo is not visible to me when not logged in, or to anyone else on the forum.

Any advice to get this sorted would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
My workflow on this forum is (as I tend to forget the html codes sequence....)
1 Paste above img ”http” link in edit window of forum
2 Preview post => the link is now formatted by forum SW to an URL link with [u rl]http ....[/u rl]
3 Edit link to change url to img type and it will display...

Welcome Vitaly!

Sorry, I've no idea on the finer points of image posting. I don't post a lot, but tend to upload to the forums directly whenever I do.

Interestingly the image appears fine in the helpful posts of both @ramseybuckeye and @mlag above -- but still only when I am logged in. After I log out, the image no longer appears in those posts, nor does the image appear in my latest post.

Is this a "feature" of Pentax Forums, that some links are only visible to users who are logged in? Normally when using the forums it seems like I've been able to see all the images at various links without logging in.

Thanks again for the help and suggestions!
