Default Imgur pics directly into forum posts NO LINKS

In Imgur click the image you want and it will come up in a separate window, in the bottom right corner click Large or Huge Thumbnail, then Copy BBcode. Right click in your forum post text box and paste, do NOT use the insert image icon. Use the preview button to choose the right size image before posting. Like this (large thumbnail):



If you have a bunch of pictures, you can create an album and download all album pictures into your post at once. Sign into Imgur, click on the green circle in the upper right corner and select images. You can always get back to the Green circle by clicking the Imgur icon in the upper left corner.

A new page will come up with all your pictures. In the upper left click the "All Images" tab. Select "new album". In the new window, name your album and save. Select "add images" and in the new window click one of the options on the left, then select images for your album and save.

Now click on the “View Image Info” tab and on the drop down list select “Generate Image Links”. Select the images you want to download. Remember this forum has a max of 12 images. Then click “Done” In the new window, click on “Link (email & IM), and on the drop down list select “BBCode(message boards)”. On the “Original Image” tab, select Large Thumbnail. Now click the copy button or right click on the green area and copy.

In your Forum text box, right click and paste. Do NOT use the “Insert Image” icon. All your selected album pictures will be in your post. Use the preview button to get everything to your liking before posting (I like to have spaces between pics). It will look like this with no spaces (medium thumbnail):

Thanks. Really wish Imgur worked with Apple mobile devices, as thats all I use. Still struggling to be able to post pics here via Imgur. Anyone have a "work around" for this?

Not sure about iPad, that should be similar to a laptop.
