Windows 7: A Preferred Method of Uploading/Posting Screen Shots

I don't understand some peoples reactions...I use many image sites including imageshack,and it is definitely easier to just click attach,browse to file and upload.How can it be easier to go to a new site(while ur writing a post anyway)get the link,come back to the post and add it?Unbelievable.
I would have thought people would want to do it out of courtesy for the site.
Sorry for getting bit wound up but it's not much to ask,is it?
I'm the same as mr grim,the image takes much longer to load.I don't bother waiting for it if it does that.

Well , actually this may be due to most of the forums donot have the feature. Moreover i think the attachments has got a limited b/w for every user. So you can attach some fixed no. of files. That why people prefer uploading to picasa or imageshack , tinypic etc and post the forum url here .

Opinion on the snip tool.

I think this is a great addition to Win 7; I think it's awsome that I can steal any thing I see on my screen and the authorities never contact me! I use it for grabbing pics,screen shots,error messages.Just expressin,thnx.

I get the logic,but the problem is that,when one surf after 3-4 years (say the post was created in the year 2006,we are surfing now),many pictures says "image not available"...its very awkward to me Some times the "lost" image was the centre of discussion for next few posts.Even,some standard Photography forums suffers from this problem.
Today,when the forums are offering spaces to upload,I think its better to upload right in that very forum rather than using bb code to insert images from third party web site,especially when its not fully in your control.

Yes its a quite good "Basic" utility...
For advanced options you will need to use third party tools to save your time editing them in PS.

In many of the replys I notice "Screen Shots" and wondered how you do this in Windows 7? Also can they be saved in a folder for future reference? And is there a Print Screen utility in Windows 7 or a preferred Print Screen Program you recommend. Thanks for your consideration!
