How Do I Post Pictures Here?

Post by Barry on Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:53 pm

Pictures are not stored here in the Forum.
They need to be hosted off-site then hyperlinked from within your post.



You have two options to do this:

Using ServImg.com the image hosting site sponsored by the providers of this Forum
Click on the "Host An Image" button in the editor and follow the prompts:


If you simply want to link to a URL, select the "Insert Image" option:




UPDATE July 2017:
See important information in Post #2 below


2. Preferred Method: Use a free hosting site such as Photobucket.com 

Simply copy the IMG code and paste it in your post.




Why do we "prefer" this method?

You have easier access to your pictures with additional options for editing tools and album creation, and more control. It's also simpler to post them in multiple locations. Generally, much easier to organize and manage your images.

Bad news for many long time users of PhotoBucket...they are changing their terms of use. Just like many other major photo hosting services, they "no longer support 3rd party hosting".

That means you can no longer reference an image on a forum or web site which is hosted on PhotoBucket, at least not on a free account. You must upgrade to continue to do so. Your image will be replaced with a notice to that effect.

For the time being, www.servimg.com as referenced in the first post would now be a good option. Since it is also run by Forumotion the host of this forum, it is likely to remain free.

That does not necessarily mean it will be ad-free but for now it appears to be clean.
