If you use Imgur to post pictures
« on: April 22, 2019, 07:57:37 AM »
So I use Imgur.  I don't have an imgur account, I just post the picture and then link it right then.  If I didn't link it right away, I'd never find it again.  The hard part of this is finding the right linking code.

To link to a picture here, you need a url and a filename and .jpg (or whatever image file) on the end.  So in the end you will have something like
{IMG}http://www.somewhere.com/somefilename.jpg{/IMG}

So if you go to imgur.com and click the "new post" button it offers you to drag and drop or you can browse.  If you browse, you can upload multiple images.

So when you upload a picture, you should see something like this:

If your picture was one of the fuse box diagram, anyway.

Here is the tricky part.  When you hover over the photo you can pull down a menu for Share Links



And here then is the one you want, on the lower left


Paste that into the forum here and it'll show up.
