C) Next it'll take to you a page with MANY different links to your picture and in great ways, make sure you read what each link does.

Hey Arch....just thought I'd add to this a little. You mentioned ImageShack as a possible host for pictures, but since people have different preferences for that sort of thing, I thought I'd provide links for a few other sites that will host your pictures for free, and allow you to direct link the images from their server.

Snapfish

Photobucket


Image Cave


Tiny Pic


This is by no means a complete list, but it's always good to have options....:mrgreen:
