How to Upload and Post Images

Recommended Posts

I've gathered a little tutorial together from my experiences with different users on the forums. I hope some may find this helpful as well. writer-pink-mouse-emoticon.gif

How to upload and post a picture from Imgur.com

 

1. Click on upload image and choose a file. Once it has processed, copy the direct link. Your picture must end in .gif or .jpg or .png.

Then just paste your image here in the reply box. You will have to remove the [i m g] tags for the picture to embed. Like so. Click submit to finish.

You can also use Postimage.org to upload and host your images. Just follow the steps.

You can use any image hosting website. Just remember, for the image to embed here it must be a direct link... ie. one that ends in .jpg .gif .png or any image type.  It's the same if you want to copy and paste an image directly from the web.

You can't embed the whole tumblr post, instead you have to copy and paste the pictures themselves and any additional credits.

You have to copy and paste the code ending in .jpg or .gif etc for it to show here in the forums. 

Like so

@BokMan

You're trying to copy the website that shows the image, not the image itsself. In this case, rightclick the image, choose "Copy image address" and paste it here. You'll get the following result:

That's not coming up as a valid link. You can copy and paste from your Ipad, just follow these steps:

 

  1. Double tap in the area you would like to copy.
  2. You'll now see the popup and blue anchors on your screen. ...
  3. One you're done adjusting your selection just tap Copy or Cut.

Sigh! I followed your instruction, and was able to copy-paste.However, after I pressed "submit reply" the link became like the one above, the letters in the middle of the link "-" disappeared...Is tinypic for free, or a i required to pay or something? I registered there using only my email...:(

I've just found out that Tinypic has been censored by the forum admins as it sometimes throws up R-rated images. I've removed my tutorial on it and will link to another site where you can upload and post your images on. In the meantime, do use Imgur.
