I use photobucket for everything aquarium related. They have a nice mobile app as well.

I have all my photos backed up on Google as Zapins explained but I never link to those images in my posts.

Just go slow.

You can add substrate using a pvc pipe. Put one end on the bottom of the tank and the other end above water to pour in the substrate.
