It´s the best. Easy, simple, no ads all over your face.

I have long history of uploading pictures on the internet all the way back when i was really young photoshopping cars, I know my --- when it comes to image uploaders. (imageshack was the sh*t back then, not so much today)

Given that someone mentioned it was ok to test posting out pics here, I am going to give it a whirl. Here goes nothing.

How do you post a picture that is also a clickable link (for example to its hi-res original)?

I found some BBCode but it doesn't work ([img]image-link[/img]). Is there another format of codes used on this forum?

Remove the quotes around "link" and try again :)

HOW TO Post a picture

Post

Yes, I know I sound like Im completely computer illiterate....but how do I post a picture that Ive taken with a digital camera? I was told that Id have to upload the picture to a website, and then post it on the forum with a hotlink, but Im sure there must be an easier way.

many thanks,

No, there is no easier way. You’ll have to first upload to a site such as imgur or similar and then post a link.
You do not upload any files directly to this forum.

So!
This is 2021 and many of the image hosting sites mentioned in the thread no longer exist.
Imgur is still there, still works, but am I the only one to find that the interface has become mysterious and almost unusable, and that they hide your link behind as many clicks as possible?

A few people mentioned IMGBB today. Is it good / easy / better?

Which other image hosting sites are good and easy to use right now?

Just to confirm: I assume that pasting or uploading pictures directly into the thread isn't supported by this forum software? Because it definitely works on some sites I use.

Support is being worked on, but no promises on timeline I'm afraid.
You'll be the first to know though ;)

Uh? Imageshack is back?!
Hadn't it stopped working at some point? (became a pay product, if I remember it correctly).
