Since WoW makes screenshots that are 3 MB in size, it would be stupidity to upload them in their original form. Here is a way to convert and upload them - all free :D

Download Irfanview (fast mirror) and install it.

Go to your WoW Screenshot folder (/World of Warcraft/Screenshots/) and doubleclick the *.tga files to start IrfanView. If for any case it should not start, start IrfanView via Start Menu and Open the file in IrfanView again.

Now that the image is loaded, click on File --> Save as.. and choose GIF on the drop down menu. There is no need to change the preset settings so just save the file and voila, you made a 3MB file into a 300KB sized image.

Now go to http://imageshack.us and click on Browse and select the file you want to upload and click on Host it!. That's it. I usually pick the Thumbnails for Forums option, just copy and paste that it and will look like this:

This is pretty bad advice :(

I'd go for PNG, or perhaps JPG. GIF is a bad format for images with many colours; it is great for screenshots of Windows applications, but not for WoW.
