    Public Service Announcement: How to post images

    I thought I'd put together a quick guide on how to post images.

    There's quite a few ways to do it, but this is how I do it.



    Step 1
    Go to imgur: the simple image sharer

    It is a free service, quick to load and minimal ads. You do not have to set up an account to use it. But if you do set up an account it will keep your images indefinitely, you can set up albums and other useful features. Note that if you want to create private images you can do so via settings.

    Step 2

    Upload images in one of four ways:
    • From your Computer
    • From a Web URL
    • Drag and drop from your file browser (eg. Windows Explorer)
    • Ctrl-V (paste from your clipboard)


    Step 3
    You will then be presented the following screen. Simply click Start Upload.


    Step 4
    Your image is now uploaded. Various links to the image are presented on the right hand side of the screen.


    You can either:
    • Paste the BBCode directly into your AVF post - but only if your are in Source Mode (this can be changed by clicking on the icon)
    • Or, the more foolproof method is to click on the icon. On the From URL tab paste the Direct Link from imgur, and untick Retrieve remote file.


    NOTE: If you have uploaded a gigantic file, click on Large Thumbnail under the Size section before copying the link, and imgur will shrink the image for you.

    Step 5
    If you want to see if everything worked, click on Go Advanced, which will provide a preview of your post.




    Hope that helps.


    UPDATE

    Just a note that Imgur is now providing Pro accounts for free.


    So now by signing up you can:

    • Store an unlimited number of images in your account
    • Receive multiple thumbnail options on all uploads
    • Access complete image analytics and referrer data
    • Manage, edit or delete any uploaded image at any time

    Great idea for a thread. I used to use photobucket. Now I simply take pics on the phone and post to the forum with tapatalk. It's just too easy.
