This had been bothering me for way too long, I can not believe it was as simple as the size. Thanks a lot!
It's also in the OP ;)
Thanks to DiipuSurotu's suggestion added NoelShack.com to the list of recommended image hosts. Appears to be decent and includes support for some image formats not typically supported by most image hosts.
I'll also quote this from another thread for those using Imgur and wanting a quicker method of posting to GAF:

Mentioned in the avatar OT but didn't add it to the OP since it requires a tiny addition to get it working with Imgur after an API change last year and the author hasn't updated it to include the fix available. Follow these steps to get Imgur support working with it again.
