Posting photos with Imgur

Postby Nanonevol » Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:43 am

I'm now using Imgur for my photos as they are a free site and I think even easier than the greedy Photobucket.
You must register and create a user name and password of course.
I upload my photo to Imgur by clicking on "new post" and then drag and drop or browse for my photo.
Then there are several ways to link your photo in Imgur. I click on "copy" next to the one called "BBCode" for message boards and forums. Then here on FiatSpider.com I simply right click my mouse to paste my photo into my message. No need to use the "Img" button and try to paste it exactly in between as the Imgur copy has them already.
You can also size the photo in Imgur. Under the links buttons there is a place to select size as in "original, small square, big square, small thumbnail, medium thumbnail, large thumbnail, and huge thumbnail.
Good luck!

I, too, have switched over to Imgur. Uploads are quick and easy. Click copy and paste likewise. But I did not find getting 'round the site particularly intuitive. Albums etc.

Glad to be free of the 'bucket. That went south some time ago and over the top when they stopped allowing pasted links to non payers. (As if having to see all those intrusive ads weren't enough penance!)
