I resize all my pics before putting on MTO Gallery (or when I used Photobucket). I set the largest dimension to 1280. When they are too big they cripple the viewing for those of us with poor internet.

I'm not familiar with imgur, but is there an option to copy the 'code' of each picture? Paste this code into your forum message.
I'm not sure which is best to use, HTML Code, BB Code, URL etc but when I post from the MTO Gallery I choose BB Code then I think this option:



Thank you for the response.  IIRC, I tried them all and nothing shows up...it's weird, but I could have sworn I did seen the same thing work for other members.

I actually resize everything to long edge=1000, and even size under 500kb before uploading to imgur(or MTO)...but just could get it to work.  It kinda sucks because I couldn't tell any story with caption, and everything just show up as attachment.

Btw, do I need to apply for an account on imgur before it works properly to host?  Right now, I just upload without an account.

Imgur doesn't need an account for uploading pics.
But if you go that route, and you lose the link to the pic, it's gone.:ahhh

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Thank you guys!

I wish I could share that with you now,  but I didn't use the account to upload that, so it is good as gone as DP said.  Since I'm doing the super 30 challenge, how about I come back tomorrow with a link to my next photo and seek you guys help? :salute:

Well... we can try....

I went to imgur and found a random pic. The only thing I could find was "Embed Post".... which gives me the following to copy:
http://<blockquote class="imgur-embed-pub" lang="en" data-id="nZmjnkH"><a href="//imgur.com/nZmjnkH">A cat with Rottweiler bodyguards[/url]<script async src="//s.imgur.com/min/embed.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

I don't know what to do with that. :dunno:

If from there I go to "Share" it gives me this:
https://imgur.com/nZmjnkH

I tried pasting this in this post, selecting it then clicking on the "Insert Image" button and got this:


Sorry, I'm just grabbing at straws here.  :facepalm:

Are you using mobile or on a PC. I've never found a good way using the mobile app. I use my desktop to post most of my pics from imgur. ?

If you open an account-( it's free )  you don't even have to bother resizing your pics. When you click on a pic you have several sizing options to post. I use the large thumbnail option which works great for the forum . Use the BBcode link

Like this




which gives you this

 :tu:  Clearly you need to be logged into your account to see and access those codes. Which is probably normal for most image-sharing websites.
