.. if that's the right word
I'm an almost idiot when it comes to internet stuff. I can post photos on this site because you can paste them straight from a home folder

Other sites make you use a hosting page - photobucket etc. I now have a photobucket account but generally blunder around it & then give up rather than smash the computer to bits, especially as every time I try to use it I'm bombarded with pop up video ads & other internetfuzz

So to cut a short story long - what is a nice simple photo site for idiots ?

So you just want to have photos online that others can see - use iCloud if you have an iDevice or use Flickr for the rest.

Simple drag and drop to a webpage and they appear online.

It depends what you want to do with them. Here's an article that explains the ins and outs and gives a few suggestions:

Photobucket IS one of the simplest Smile

From the way you say "computer" would it be fair to say you use one with a keyboard and monitor, and not a tablet or phone for this activity?
