Although I'm a paying member, I find this annoying. I've lost count of the number of times I've stumbled across an old thread with pictures that would no doubt have been very helpful, but they've expired on whatever external hosting site was used. Preventing non-paid members from hosting photos here, permanently, is a disservice to me, a paying member.
Storage is cheap these days. Look at the Stack Exchange network - super-high traffic, direct image hosting, no payment. I'm happy to pay for the service but, with the ad revenue the owners get, hosting images shouldn't be an issue.
