Default How to Post Images Using Imgur on our Forum

This is so easy even a cavewoman/caveman could do it. Even us old guys can do it.

First step is to register with Imgur. https://imgur.com/

Once you have the account, just log in. I keep myself logged in so I don't even need to remember the password. This is almost the only hard part.

Take your pictures and save them on your desktop. If more than one picture is needed, put them in a folder with the title what it is.

Log into imgur. Click on green "New post"

A window will pop up, just drag your picture, or in case of pictures, you have to highlight them all. You will see a green line as imgur uploads your pictures. You will know when imgur is finished, the green line will go away.

Almost there. Put your pointer on your log in name top right. Box will show options. Drop down to images and click. You will then see your pictures as they are on Imgur.

Click on the image/picture you want to post. It will jump up larger.

On the right, you will see: View and edit post. Go down to: Sizes: Original Small Square Big Square Small Thumbnail Medium Thumbnail Large Thumbnail Huge Thumbnail

Click on the Large Thumbnail. That will make your picture fit our Forum.

Then go up to "BBCode (message boards & forums)" Click copy. Your picture is now ready to ad to your post.

It will go to your computer so you can just right click and paste it in your post.

Example: [img]https: //i.imgur.com/ckNf8VKl.jpg[/img] I put some spaces so you can see the link. It already has the correct img code. Just paste it into your post. No need to use the mountain button.

If you have more pictures to post you need to click on them and copy the BBcode. Then just post to your post. The size will remain the same as long as you stay logged in to Imgur.

This really gets so easy with a few tries, I don't even think about posting pictures, did I say easy.

Hope this helps, Kansas Poster

Here is the picture from above.

then save it in word or a text example, print off ten copies - then just checkmark after each step.

One thing I forgot, is you can also ad the BBCode img to PMs which makes it so easy to send to others that ask for pictures.
