I mean you can try tinypic.com or any number of other sites, but also if you keep the sizes proportionate to what you want you can use CSS to increase the size.

When you write "large", what sort of size are you actually requiring, and what is the nature of the pictures?

Depending on the nature of the images, and assuming it doesn't contravene their terms of service, have you considered services such as Deviant Art or Sheezy Art?

Last time I checked Deviantart gets a little pissy with hotlinking.

Indeed, this is true - Deviantart does not allow hotlinking. Therefore, if the OP was looking for free image hosting for the purposes of customising their board graphics or similar, Deviantart would not be a viable solution. It still would be viable, however, if the OP was looking for free image hosting that could be linked to with an anchor and didn't need to actually be displayed directly on their forum itself. Of course, I figure the latter is fairly unlikely to be the case, but having mentioned "large pictures", I figured it's possible that the images to be hosted might be too large to be displayed directly and possibly might be linked to with anchor links, in which case, it might be an option. Of course, we won't really know unless the OP decides to reply at some point, which they haven't seemed to have done yet.

They had already specified they were for their messageboard, usually in this case i find it safe to assume they were uploading a background or some other large image to find it was downsized and do not really have an understanding of resolutions or that you can scale them using CSS.

Ah, okay. I misinterpreted; Sorry about that. My original suggestion won't work then, so no worries. ^.^
