On the Internet there are many both free as well as paid web hosting services where we can host images, but since we use Blogger, then there is nothing better than using the same hosting service that Google gives us, which is Picasa.
The fastest way to upload an image is by going to the Blogger post editor. From your Blogger Dashboard, go to your blog, then click on the New post button. And preferably, from the Edit HTML tab, click on the image icon.
Once it has been uploaded, you will see in the post editor the html code of the image.

The first is the URL of the image that you need to copy. It’s not required to publish this entry where you uploaded the photo; you could as well not publish it, leave it as Draft or delete it. The image will be saved anyway on PicasaWeb (unless when you removed the draft, you have also selected the option to remove the image).
You could also upload image directly from Picasa:
Just login to PicasaWeb, select the album where you want to host the image, and click on Add photos.
To get the URL of the image from Picasa, click on the image to open in full size > right click on the picture and select the following option depending on the browser you are using…
On Google Chrome > select Copy Image URL:
Remember that all images you upload on Blogger, are stored in your Picasa account. So, if you find an image previously uploaded on your blog, just go to your Picasa account, select the album containing the name of your blog and there find the picture you need. The method to get the URL of the image is the same as explained above.
