Are you on a phone or something? Cause I mean on a pc it's pretty trivial to use the album system? I think it is a pita on phone cause it uses popup windows, which never work right on mobile browsers. And the insert image button at the top will only work if the host properly setup their TLS so you can access the file using https. The insert image on the right is for "your photos" in your album. Basically there are 2 steps. Uploading the file to be hosted some place publicly accessible, like directly to your album here, or to imgur, or like I use my own domain agentpothead.com, then step 2 linking to that photo. Your album lists photos in the most recent order, so you don't really have to browse them to find them as much as click the most recent photo. On a pc this is pretty trivial stuff, but on a phone it's kind of a pita. I also highly recommend organizing into albums. That way you can just show your outdoor grow pics, or tent pics, or clones or nugs or whatever and if you need an older pic you won't have to sort through everything, but a sorted version of everything.

Don't sweat the technique.
And honestly. My fuck ups turn to gold so much the thought of fuckin up don't even bother me. So I keep it auto when I'm stepping through a portal. I know that sounds strange but, strange beats normal.
