    (from @Tom CT's thread)

    yeah, you quote something with an attached image and you get the "view attachment" thing, not so awesome;

    i think you can copy image/paste the image itself from that post into your response post and it actually shows. (might be a supporting members perk)

    I asked this in a different thread

    the difference is when you upload the image directly to TGP, you get the "view attachment" in the quote. When it's hosted offsite like Imgur, you see the image.

    Given how easy it is to upload to Imgur, that's the no-brainer option for me.

    sure, but when you're quoting somebody else's post with a picture, rather than uploading the pic to your own cloud picture stash, linking and re-sending it to your response post, just "copy image" straight off their original post and "paste" right into yours; way less hassle.
