Posting pictures with Imgur
« on: November 20, 2017, 08:09:13 PM »

To post images here you can use Imgur.com via the following steps:

1. Visit http://imgur.com/upload

You do not need an account to upload images but if you plan to post images regularly or want to be able to easily delete them later you will want to sign up.





2. Upload one or more images by dragging them to the window or browsing to them on your computer.

Once the image(s) have uploaded you need to click on the triangle in the upper right of each image.





3. Select 'Get Share Links' and then click on Copy beside the 'BBCode (Forums)' section in the dialog that pops up.

When you click the button, the textbox beside it with the link will flash briefly to let you know it has been copied to your clipboard.





4. You can then paste the copied link into a post - repeat as needed! :)

If your images are HUGE you can use this BBCode snippet as a guide when posting them so they are displayed in a forum-friendly way that still gives others access to that huge version if they want to see it.

Code: [Select]
[url=https://i.imgur.com/06aKJS9.png]
[img width=640]https://i.imgur.com/06aKJS9.png[/img]
[/url]

In the snippet above, the link to the image (https://i.imgur.com/06aKJS9.png) appears twice. Once in the IMG tag which specifies that the image should be displayed with a width of 640px, and again in the surrounding URL tag which makes the image displayed in the post a clickable link to the full size picture. (The images in this post follow this pattern so you can click on them to see the screenshots at full size.)
 
I am testing a forum plugin that will make uploading images easier but for now these steps should get you going. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out and I'll help any way I can!

Cheers,
Tim
