Posting Images on the Forum

Here is an easy way to post images in threads on the forum.

Upload them to Imgur https://imgur.com/ There is no need to Register there.

Hover over the uploaded image until you see the URL, a [Copy] button and a drop-down arrow; click on the arrow and select "Get share links". Click [Copy] for the "BBCode (Forums)" link for the uploaded image, then Ctrl+c. Here are the screens you should see:

Image

Paste it into your post AND ADD A 't' to the image filename to create a thumbnail-sized image
Code: Select all
[img]https://i.imgur.com/iCtdt7ut.png[/img]

Image

Paste in the link (to the full-size picture) again AND REMOVE the IMG tags:
Code: Select all

Another service is ImageShack http://imageshack.us/

Post a link to the thumbnail picture ("Forum Thumbnail") and a link to the picture itself ("Direct Link") ImageShack provides both sets of code for you to use. As an example, the following code:
Code: Select all
[url=http://img66.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dsmovst303lz2.png][img]http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/3816/dsmovst303lz2.th.png[/img][/url]
Big pic: [url]http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/3816/dsmovst303lz2.png[/url]

results in the thumbnail image in your post:
<<deleted by ImageShack>>
Big pic: http://img66.imageshack.us/img66/3816/dsmovst303lz2.png

Big pictures can use a lot of bandwidth and are awkward to see on mobile devices (iPad, phone etc), so please do not post them directly. They may be removed by the moderators

If the picture is small enough then you could display it directly. Select the image file name (Direct Link), paste it and enclose it in the IMG tags. As an example, this code:
Code: Select all
[img]http://img203.imageshack.us/img203/8757/st25dscolours.png[/img]

results in the image displayed in your post:
<<deleted by ImageShack>>.
