How do you ..........

Postby simplythebest » January 11th, 2011, 1:31 am

Can anyone tell me how do you post up an image?
Under FAQ's it says that you can, and to go into the BBCode Img. I presume that means that you press the button "Img" which puts [Img][Img] on the screen. When I copy the image to insert it to the middle, the "Paste" option is greyed out upon hitting the right mouse key. What am I doing wrong?

IMG is for using a link to point to an image. It's not hosted directly on this forum. You need to use the URL instead.

If it's an image from your computer, you can post it on a free image hosting site like imageshack or photobucket (or facebook) first and then link to it.

Thanks Ronk. But with the Url, just a link will come up. Is it possible to actually upload an image?

Yeah, you need to give the URL of the image, not of the webpage. You do that by right clicking on the image you want and (depending on your web browser) clicking something like COPY IMAGE URL/ADDRESS
