Can I stop my members posting images? I don't mind if they use a hosting site like photobucket but if I allow them to use the forum storage I will soon run out of space.

I do not think using Servimg uses up storage space. Only sending files itself of images etc as an attachment would do that.

Storage space is used by attachments and the gallery.

So I take it that when a member uploads an image this is then stored in my forum  storage which at present I have 20mb free of charge. and the same applies if they upload to their personal gallery?

If they use an attachment then yes it will come out of your 20mb free as well as in the gallery. However pictures from photobucket, servimg and other image hosting sites don't count.
