With this week's contest requiring players to post screenshots in the forum, I thought I'd offer a step-by-step guide to neatly posting a pic from Imgur.

 

  • Copy the direct link (email & IM) from Imgur
  • Click on the spoiler button here. It's the paper-looking icon to the right of the "
  • Then click the Image icon (top row left of YouTube)
  • Paste the link from Imgur into the URL box in the Image pop-up
  • Click ok and that's it

 

Repeat the above for multiple pics or you can squeeze multiple picture into a single spoiler by creating the spoiler, then hitting enter a few times to make the box bigger. This allows room for more than one pic.

Hope this makes sense and helps.

:honoring:

Thanks Zapper! I meant to look for the old guide for this but with so many things going on I got side tracked. Pinned for the rest of the community. :honoring:

Also, from imgur, you can click the copy button on the left side of the HTML (website/blogs) and then just paste them onto your forum reply. Just an FYI.

What is Imgur and where is the link and IM?  This makes no sense to me.  I assume you assume I know what you are talking about?

Once you upload the photo, the "Direct Link and IM" option will appear on the right as a link you can copy and paste.


Dreaming of better days.  When this game had full matches, fiery dogfights, and hope for the future.

Why are you people posting screens in a How-to thread? No prizes here.

Here is a neat little thing that I do for In Game screenshots that take up a lot of space on a post and not having to use spoiler via Imgur.com.

Let's use this link which is a in game screenshot:  http://i.imgur.com/lSSIb4l.jpg

 

By putting a "s"  here:  http://i.imgur.com/lSSIb4ls.jpg  in the link this will resize the picture to a small square.  Then you can take that link with the "s" in it and put it here in the Image Properties > Image Info tab:

 

 

Then in the Image Properties > Link Tab, put the regular link http://i.imgur.com/UVOoATP.png (without the "s") here and change to the Target from Same Window to New Window.

 

 

After all that you will get something like this:

 

 

So when you click on the small square (thumbnail) image, it will open in a New Window the full size version of the image.  This will help keep the post small without the need to use spoliers.

Thanks for these cool tips! I use the UPL upload and sharing platform. It's free, fast and easy to use. Yep, the 

old guide has been really helpful too. :)
