    Hi, Folks.

    This post is designed to instruct you how to post images using Imgur & your home computer. There are additional posts that cite how to post using the Imgur app on your phone; my goal is to teach you how to use Imgur with what many commonly use...your computer.

    Use either Google or another internet search engine to locate Imgur.com.

    Create an account with Imgur.

    Using your home computer, export the photos you wish to upload to Imgur based on your photo application to your desktop.

    Open Imgur in a new browser window, navigate to your screen name, and select 'Images' beneath the drop down menu.

    Click on 'Add Images.' You can select your image size beneath 'Add Images.' Typically, 600x800 or 15-inch monitor works well.

    Drag the images you wish to upload one at a time to the Add Images window.

    The images will automatically upload. Repeat as necessary. To finish, be sure to refresh your computer screen by clicking the forward-circle to the right of your URL line.

    Next, click on the thumbnail of an image, and select "BB Code", clicking on Copy. Then open a new window to this forum. Create a new post and use Ctrl-V or Command-V to paste the link into the post screen. Toggle between this forum site and Imgur and repeat this step as necessary to add additional images.

    Thanks for reading.

    can you use Flickr to post? I tried using the html code and the BBCode and didn't have any luck posting with either. The images don't show up. Is Imgur the only one that will work?

    Thanks so much for the help!

    You can use Flickr, and several others.

    TGH,

    When you copy BB code, simply open a new window to this forum, and create a new post. Be sure to use Command or Control-V to paste the BB code within the post window. Add a title, click post thread, done...

    This is one time where a "you're welcome" may not be realistic, but the intended sentiment is there. :)
