Twistie, you need an off site image hosting sevice like photobucket. Not neccesarily plugging that one, but it's well known. You upload the picture you want to post here on your image hosting account. Then when you want to post a thread here with you picture, just copy the image code in the body of your post. Every site is a little differant, you may have to play with it a bit.

I hope that helps.

welcome
try imgboot.com free no max view etc, no limits really and they dont delet anything.. sign up down load, or find anypic on that site or online right click hit copy image location
come here right click hit "paste" the put this before it [img] and this after the link you pasted [/img]

so it would look like this
[img]www.RandomPictureYouWantToPost.com[/img]
pm me if you have any more questions regarding this

Or look in one of Nalioth's posts for the ImgDump link and upload them there. Nalioth, while grumpy, is a very useful fellow!

edited to clean up and improve the intel on this subject.

It seems to come up every time we have new users, so maybe this will keep duplicate posts from happening.

Anyone with advice, good image host reccomendations, tutorials, all welcome to post that here

This post is a poster child for why you don't use photobucket or imageshack (or hosts with similar policies) to host pix you want to keep around for a while. . .

What are the most rare 30 round AK magazines? - AK Files


Choose your image host wisely, if you want your pictorial contributions to stay relevant.

Edited 21 October, 2013 to add this example of why you shouldn't use photobucket or imageshack: Ultimak setup - AK Files

This forum is basically the same as Calguns. Why not just format the paper clip thingy so we can upload pics from our saved files, like Calguns does?

I would agree.

A modern phone is like a pistol. You use it when you don't have a rifle (PC)

When I use photo bucket is there a setting that will not allow users to click my picture and go to photo bucket and look at my stuff, yet does not erase my posted pictures? Type slow so I can understand. This is all done on my android.

Yes, there is a link for that ( I believe they offer 4 or 5 different types of URL )

If folks are clicking and deleting your pix, you are providing the wrong URL.

I believe they are clicking on my posted picture and going to my photo bucket site. I have found I can click some of the pictures on the image test site and go into their photo bucket. Photo bucket offers an lmg or HTML or direct or e mail im. I have been using IMG. When I tried the privacy setting I believe that erased my posted pictures.

you need to make that album PRIVATE. IIRC default is public. you can still post individual pix. with IMG codes.

from my private album



this album i left public, as i made it to share.

Tried imgboot.com. Appears to be dead. Can't get Nalioth's imgdump to load. So went with Photobucket, although there appears to be an issue with them dumping older pics? And here's what I had to do there. Please advise if I'm doing this wrong.

To embed the image in the forum reply and only show the image and not give access to my Photobucket libraries, delete the [URL] before and after the [IMG]xxxxxxxxxxx[IMG] ? Thanks.
