Best place to host images to share to the forum

I've been using imgur, but when posting from my phone imgur is a pain. I have to open the imgur website (which always wants to just open the app...) then select the desktop website, sign in again, click the picture then the direct link and paste to my post. Is there another option that works well from a Phone) tablet?

I use a notebook computer mostly, and it is pretty painless to link from my Google drive. The Google supplied link does have be changed to
uc?id from open?id. The correct link to use is from the contextual menu option 'get shareable link.'

I copy, then paste the link inside <img> </img> brackets in a post and as a last step correct the URL as noted above.
