I think it's one of the perks of being a Platinum Member:
It works for me so I guess that explains why, didn’t even realise 🙈
Currently a Platinum feature to help pay for the storage! I was looking for an image host to recommend to use with the URL inserter. Does anybody have a good suggestion?
I know what blob storage costs in a league of 50-150mb/image because I host a photographer service to transfer images to the customer.Currently a Platinum feature to help pay for the storage!

You could even limit the storage by user and say: 100mb, 500mb, 1gb is free and with premium you get unlimited.
But storage is the cheapest part for apps.
Except of this I prefer Dropbox/gDrive because most image hosting services delete after some time or also want to get paid.
@Adam that really depends. My personal choice is AWS S3. However especially without a cache, it could really get out of hand very quickly. Recently I found out about Wasabi but I haven't tried myself.
Looking at their service, it looks like if you use a cache layer, it could be a dirt cheap service. However I must underline again, I have not used it myself.
Amazon S3, with Cloudfront infront of it if you want a CDN/Cache layer,
I'd say, CloudFlare if you want to further pull down the costs rather than CloudFront. It is likely free service of CloudFlare would be more than enough.
This being said, if you already use multiple AWS services and/ or rather stick with a single service instead of trying to jump through hoops, CloudFront is the way to go. Costs would be cheaper but it will still cost you. CloudFront is not free and its cost also depends on the "region".
No flat fee might make a budget project harder to estimate especially if you don't have all the data you need.
You could also integrate a third-party image host directly into the post editor, I've done this with my forum and image host.
