Please avoid using this forum to host them. Wherever possible, please use third-party hosting for your images, place them in a publicly accessible location and link to them on this forum. This third-party hosting can be your own server if you have one or a service such as PhotoBucket, DropBox or others.

Sorry for the firewall issues, Didier, I was afraid that might happen. Here's a downloadable zip file with the two images from above:

If anyone knows of a free option for hosting images that still allows hot-linking, I'd be happy to update my original post. All that I have looked at so far only allow hot-links for paid subscriptions.

You can use an Amazon Web Services S3 bucket.

It isn't entirely free once you get past the 12-month free usage tier point but even then you're only going to be paying pennies.

Thanks, your picture is better than what I was able to achieve, still I'm not convinced by the result.

Great! It would be nice to have the interior shot with the "DON'T PANIC!" sign, but I don't think that would be readable after the dithering process.
