How hard would it be to add image hosting to postmill?

Submitted by flabberghaster in meta

I assume the main reasons not to would be: a) space and b) monitoring for bad content and maybe d) not wanting to pay for bandwidth if people cross link... But sometimes I have a neat pic to share (such as, a photo of a dozen turtles on a log) and don't want to figure out how to put it on imgur and also don't want to put it on discord or something.

Would be a nice feature to let people upload photos to post mill, if it's feasible.

Postmill already has it. Unfortunately it relies on either local file hosting or an S3 compatible store, the latter of which has performance issues that I just can't find the motivation to fix, and so it's not suitable for a site served from an ephemeral filesystem like this one.

i'm terrible at web dev so either you'll have to figure out the code yourself or hope emma sees this :P

but yes part of it would probably involve finding an image hosting service which is something i'd prefer not to deal with
