Hosting images on dotPhoto for WordPress 

By the way, the image above is hosted at dotPhoto.  To plug photos and videos from dotPhoto into your WordPress blog, go to the image in dotPhoto, click on "Share" on the menu on left, choose "See links" and copy the "Tag" link that appears.  Go back to WordPress and choose the "HTML" button in the edit menu;  then paste dotPhoto's Tag link into your HTML.  You can adjust the display size of the image by changing these numbers at the end of the tag:  width="480" height="443";  for instance, 40% smaller would be width="288" height=266".
