    How to Post Pictures on the Forums - HUGE and SUPER-Detailed Guide

    Here's a HUGE guide on how to upload pictures on the forum editor!
    Let's start.
    1st WAY: From your Device
    In order to post pictures from your device (when creating a thread) you have to click on the "picture" icon: once you get this window:


    Click “choose file” and then “upload file(s)”.

    You will see in the editor something like [ATTACHMENT]111111[//ATTACHMENT] (with 1 /), and once you post the message there will be a link that redirects you to the image.

    So you can upload files from your device.

    Note: this doesn’t work in subforums like Forum Talk!
    2nd WAY: From an image hosting website
    There are many image hosting websites. We will see some of the most common ones.

    Imgur

    Very simple website. Go to http://imgur.com: you will see a green button on top left: “New post”; click on it.



    Click on browse and choose the file you want to upload (or paste the link if the file is already uploaded on another hosting website):



    Then wait until the website finishes the upload;

    You you will see something like this.



    Move the arrow of your mouse/cursor on the picture, you should see a little box.
    Click on the arrow (pointed in blue): you will see a list of actions you can do. Click on “get share links”: you will see this:



    We only need the BBCode, for the forum.
    So click on “copy” (see red arrow), and then paste the link you get on the forum editor.

    Postimage
    Postimage is another image hosting website. You need to go to http://postimage.org

    (Sorry if the pic is in italian, the big text means “Insert your picture here” and the text on the drop-down menu means “do not resize my picture”. The text in blue pointed by the arrow means “choose images”)

    Click on “choose image” (see arrow) and select which picture you want to upload from your device. Once you have selected it wait until the website finishes. You will see this:


    (picture translated from italian. Sorry)

    See the highlighted text (in red): that’s the preview for the forums. Click on “copy” (circled in black) and paste the link on the forum editor.

    Tinypic

    Here’s another image hosting website! Go to http://tinypic.com and then click on “choose file”.



    Then “upload now” (highlighted button).

    Before uploading your picture, though, you must complete a CAPTCHA, in order to avoid automated uploads.



    You just have to type in the highlighted box the words that will appear in the black box (pointed by the red arrow).
    Once you have typed the words, click on upload now.

    Wait until the website finishes up. You will get a screen like this:


    Copy the link in the second box (CTRL+C or keep clicking on mobile until your device shows you “copy”) and paste it in the forum editor.

    ImgBB
    It’s now the turn of ImgBB. Go to http://imgbb.com and click on the big blue botton in the center of the page “start uploading”, nad choose the file from your device.


    Do not pay attention to the text above the picture in the screenshot and click on “upload” (button highlighted in red).

    Wait and then...

    ...get this!

    Click on the drop down menu (pointed by the arrow) and choose the option “BB Code – Original picture with link”.
    Then copy the code that will appear in the box (highlighted in red) and paste it in the forum editor.




    CTRLQ

    A very good website now: CTRLQ. Go to https://ctrlq.org/images/



    ...and click on the button “upload picture” (highlighted in red)

    Choose the picture you want to upload and wait while the website finishes up.

    Then copy the link in the first box:

    Then you must paste that link in the forum image uploader:


    Choosing "from url"

    Paste the link in the forum box you will get.

    Note: this can be also done with all the other websites.
    This was a super guide!

    Thanks to ilovehayday for encouraging me and to you all!

    Hi, nice guide

    Tip: use [noparse] [/noparse] around any BB code, so you wouldnt have to include * or two // or anything, that way it will show the original BB code.

    Tip 2: Dont use your forum image storage, because it can hold like nothing, it is so small.

    Great guide, Holmes. I only read a little bit cause I know how to add photos. But if I had a dollar for every person that I've seen ask, I'd have enough money to pay someone else to read those posts for me

    This is a very nice guide! I'm sure it will be very helpful to people newer to the forum or people who simply forget how to upload pictures from time to time! I'll definitely link this post when people need help with posting images in the future.

    All of those sites are blocked by my ISP temporarily, Uploads.im is the only one that works for me currently.

    It is your browser.

    I have selected the websites that anyone can visit.
