  • You might want to look at any number of image hosts that can host *.tiff files; hopefully your file isn't too large. Dec 16, 2016 at 21:29
  • Have you seen this?

If your image is smaller than 2 MiB you can just attach it directly. (By pressing Ctrl+G or clicking the insert image icon)

Image icon

If not, you can try any of the multitude of image hosting platforms (such as https://postimage.org/) and post a link.

The problem is how reliable these are. So to be on the safe side, it s advisable to include a smaller image in the post.

Figshare is also an interesting option, although only meant for scientific results.
