Need help with images

Postby Usagi-chan » Mon Feb 16, 2015 11:03 +0000

I'm not sure if there is a topic about this already but I couldn't find one.

I can't figure out how to put an image on my posts. Can you please help? Thanks!

Firstly.... do you have your photos on your computer (or portable device), or on saved online?

You need to have them save on a photo hosting site like Flickr, Photobucket or one of the many other services available. Then we can go from there....

Does Pinterest work?

Not sure since I don't use it.

Typically the photo hosting site will provide a URL for the photo you want to post to a forum. It is as simple as cutting and pasting the url.
You can hotlink to a photo and use the IMG tab at the top of the text box, but hot linking is often frowned upon. Better to use your own photos saved on your own account (whtever that may be).

I use Photobucket for most of my photos. I use the paid service, but they have a free service too.

Here's a screen cap of a Photobucket page, with the various links you can use circled in red...

Image

The format used on most forums is to have it like this...

[ img ] http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v324/ ... tckyq5.jpg [ /img ]

I added spaces so you can see what it should look like, otherwise there are no spaces within the brackets.
