On my forum (which has nothing to do with aircraft or simulations) I recommend postimages.org/ . It is incredibly simple to use and you don't have to have an account with them. Possibly a useful alternative?

Tom, John, thanks so much for your advice. I've had a go at John's suggestion and used postimages.org which is (if it works) pathetically simple.
So here goes - I'm flying Catalina G-PBYA Miss Pickup in FSXSE, just taken off from East Midlands EGNX heading for Nottingham City Airport EGBN where we hiked to see her refuel and take off last week. Aerosoft Catalina with repaint by Jankees. In the background are the rather nicely modelled cooling towers of Ratcliffe on Soar power station, and the River Trent, made by VFR GenX photoscenery. The world is changing - power station shortly to be decommissioned, and EGBN to disappear under 4,000 new homes. But not in FSX!

And here is how to display that image right here in the forum:
Instead of using the quick reply box at the bottom, click the Reply link at the upper right of that box. Click the Insert Image button, and enter the i.postimg.cc image link into the top box. Your image will appear in your forum post.
But don’t forget that later posts of images without being related to an ongoing propliner or FS discussion belong in the Screen Shot forum. 😎
Tom, outstanding! Many thanks for your help with that, I've learned something there. Aharon, thanks, turned out well didn't it? I can't claim any credit, just went to outside view and pressed V. The guy who did the paint job is a real artist. I've just downloaded A2A's Constellation. Lots to learn. Tom, I'm very excited at discovering that I can replace all my FSX AI planes with proper ones with propellors! How lucky we are to have all you talented and generous people.

Pressing V button to copy screen produces average of 3 MB file size per screenshot. What you need to do is to press PRT SC buttn to copy the screen and then you open Microsoft MS Paint already available in your Windows operating system to paste the screenshot and save it. That produces little 150 kb size per screenshot.
And matzel tov on your first screenshot. It looks good!!
Just to end this thread, I wanted to report that I joined the Catalina Society and earlier this week used my membership to gain entrance to Duxford, 'Europe's largest air museum' (www.iwm.org.uk/visits/iwm-duxford) where 'my' Catalina "Miss Pick Up" is based. I was rather thrilled to have my photo taken standing next to her, and to chat to two of the volunteers who were giving her a wash. CalClassics are regrettably in short supply (although there's a C-47 hanging from the roof of the American Hangar) but there's a great display of 'BritClassics' including a Viscount and the awesome 4-engine Brittania. I hung around till nearly closing time and was rewarded by the sight of three Spitfires taking off together and doing circuits in formation, with a breathtaking display by one of them, with me as just about the only member of the audience. Happy days!
