Hotlinking is using someone else's photo from their source.

Basically say I post a photo and the URL is example.com/myphoto.jpg.

Instead of saving my photo and uploading it to your Photobucket/Flickr whatever, you just copy and paste my URL instead. That steals my bandwidth.

Thanks for the reply. So if I want to post a picture or link I need to save it to my picture or album, then give the reference to original post and then load it from my album
