No - you can use any image host. Imgur.com is the best one that's still available. Do not use Photobucket if you can avoid it.

Info about the development of carrier based airplanes:

Regarding the Me 109, the "Marineflieger" asked the "Luftzeugamt" (aerial weapon procurement directory) to ask Messerschmitt to develop a new type of wing, with inward folding landing gear (like in the Fw 190) and with a 20mm canon at the wing root. This transformation was such a success that from there on all Me 109 began being built with this type of wing, except the feature of the folding tips like the marine version had. Regarding the Ju 87T the major change to the land version was the engine, a Junkers Jumo 213 was installed with a takeoff power of 1.750 hp thanks to a better performing supercharger with intercooling system. Several other detail chyanges were also made to improve the aerodynamics and above all the slow flying performance thus allowing landings even without the braking cables, provided the head wind was at 60 km/h minimum (wind speed combined with the ships own speed).

PS: And yes, I changed a bit the designs of both the 109 and the Ju 87 to give a better detail. The "Graf Zeppelin" in this AU-version carried a group of 2 Staffel of Ju 87/T-1 (2 x 12 = 24 units) with two more units for its Stab (Group commander and his deputy) and also two Staffel of escorting Me 109 T (24 planes + 4 for the respective Group commander, the "Geschwader-Kommodore" of the embarqued "Marine-Geschwader flying unit" and two in reserve, plus 2 Fieseler "Storch" and 2 Me 108 for liason duties.
PS: Later (1942) specially designed airplanes (like the Siebel Fh 104) would have been carried for those liaison purposes. This airplane would have had folding wings from the engines outwards, stronger engines, a stronger undercarriage and the necessary equipment to be launched by catapult and to land with the aid of the arresting hooks.
