Need help posting pics
« on: August 03, 2019, 05:59:44 AM »
So I have been using Imgurs desktop site for some years to post pics on forums.  It seems that they have decided to shut down that site and now only the mobile app can be used.  I am not tech savvy and cannot find out how to get a linked BBcode on the app like I used to use on the desktop site. 

Can anyone give me some tips? Or suggest another hosting site that is easy to use? This feels like Photobucket all over again!

There's one hosting site that's right under your nose... well to the right a bit.
I switched to MTO Gallery when Photobucket started being dicks. You just need to PM Grant or Whoey for an account.

I have not posted much(photo wise) since either. Imgur claimed the desktop site wasn't being used much. Well, they need to do a google search. Lots of people were using it. I think it is all about them wanting to slow down the amount of uploads. :facepalm:

I may do that.  I'm assuming that only works on this forum? While MTO is my favorite, I am a member on some other forums and would like a solution that will allow me to post on them as well.

I didn't know that. Then again, I only upload using PC.

You copy a BB Code as with other photo sharing sites. I'm guessing it would work on other forums, the pics will have a MTO watermark though:

That's awesome! I didnt know that was even available.   Unfortunately I am a strictly mobile user so I'll have to keep looking.

I downloaded the imgur app and actually like it a lot. It offers easier photo uploading than the web version and has an option for making the photos public(for all of imgur to see) or hidden(where only the place you post the code can see).

After you install the app and open it, goto the "camera"icon at the bottom and select the photos you took, and touch "next". Write an obligatory "title" and select hidden or public, then hit post. Then to use the photo, touch the little "torso icon" at the bottom right. Then hit "posts" and find the folder with the image uploaded. Select the folder and then touch the image you want the code for. At the bottom of the photo it has an icon with three connected dots(share). once you touch that, it has an option to copy link. And then on MT.o, click the tiny "Mona Lisa" icon around where the bold/text options are. Paste the imgur app link between the ". Should work.  :)

The link just needs the ".jpg" added. When I goto "copy link", it puts the ".jpg" on the end of the link.

Here is your photo with ".jpg" added and the link copied from the link.



Just hit quote on this post to see what I did. But, the link should have the image url complete.  :think:
Imgur really messed us up with their app move. :facepalm:

Edit:
I see the photo still didn't work. :ahhh

Did you get the link from the imgur app or the desktop web link?

I used the app for this pic but it's a pain. When you click on your album it doesn't show the most recent pic.

Plus no option to post a smaller size pic like on the desktop version.

I hope this isn't too redundant, as I am sure you know most of this already. And please forgive my poor instructional skills. I just used my baseline thoughts for this.  :ahhh

Thanks for taking the time for the tutorial.  It was very helpful.  That is essentially what I have been trying to do.  When I copy and paste the URL for my pic though, there is no .jpg at the end of it.  I wonder if that's part of the problem...

I tried Tapatalk in the past and didnt really like the format.  I may revisit it though.   Thanks for the tip.

It also needs to be an "i.imgur" link and not an "m.imgur".

They stated low usage for cancelling the mobile web version. But, since then, I have seen a dramatic drop in user photo submissions.  :dunno:
