That's rather tedious. Well ImgRed.com lets you simply enter the original URL in your post as you normally would,
but with http://imgred.com/ written before the URL. When this is viewed, the image will be copied
once* to imgred.com, and from then on the image will always be served from imgred.com instead of the host site.

This is an example of hot-linking to an image from mozilla.com:
<img src="http://www.mozilla.com/img/firefox/main-feature2.jpg" /> (HTML)
That's bad, and some websites will even prevent the image from being displayed. So instead, do this:
<img src="http://imgred.com/http://www.mozilla.com/img/firefox/main-feature2.jpg" /> (HTML)
To show thumbnails, you can do this:
<img src="http://imgred.com/tn/http://www.mozilla.com/img/firefox/main-feature2.jpg" /> (HTML)
View imgred.com's cache of the image,
or imgred.com's thumbnail of the image.
*ImgRed is not an archive service, and occasionally its cache is cleared out (once a month or so), so images are not literally cached forever.
