A lot of members already know the answers to these two questions but for those who do not and are new to the whole thing, which happens all the time... after all forums are different than uploading a photo on your instagram account.... so here a quick guide by me for those who want help to become a little better at interacting with others on forums by showing off their creations, photos and more!


HOW TO GET MY PHOTOS AND IMAGES ON THE FORUM
You can upload your stuff by using the forum attachment system, button you find below your posting box called ''attach files''
but using that feature will add your photos and images at the bottom with a thumbnail in your post, it will not show up in bigger size or sometimes even full size when uploading it a different way, depending on how big it is in pixels - as the forum allows a max pixels in width within posts, exceed the max and it will get auto resized.


IF you want your photos and images to fully be shown in the center or at the top of your posts you will need to upload them to the internet throughout using uploading host websites.
There you can choose which files you want to upload at usually the homepages of such websites, select the photos or images from your computer or phone in the pop up that shows up, choose to upload the selected photos and they will be shown to you after a small moment. ALWAYS get the direct link of the image or else it is of no use and it will not show up on the forum!

Get the direct link by clicking your right mouse button and click where it says copy direct link or open the image in a new tab - in the url bar it usually shows you the link you need, copy that url, the direct url and put it between img bbcode tags on the forum and you are done!

use the bbcode without the *
[*img]*[/img*]

WHERE DO I GO TO UPLOAD MY PHOTOS AND IMAGES?
Where can i do all the above? What websites do you recommend?
I recommend the following websites


If you have any questions , feel free to post any of them below and i will help you asap.... or any other cutie on this forum who knows how to do stuff!

Awesome that you point this out. So it doesn't always upload an image in its full size even when choosing "Full size" instead of "Thumbnail" when uploading a pic using the forum's built-in system?

when you use the attach system it does fully upload your image in full size but you can only view it like that when you click on it
because it auto turns into a thumbnail at the bottom of your post when using that system

when you single upload it on a website like one i mentioned above, you can upload it to the internet as well, get a direct link like i described
and then that way you can let people view it in your post wherever you want , using the bbcode img tags
and if it is not too big according to max size forum allows, it will auto show in real size :sanapray:

I use imgur for image hosting. Since I reuse images quite often, I have them on a text file always open on my text editor. It already includes the img tags, so that they are ready to be posted with a single copy/paste. This is a partial extract:

Code:
Hello greeting

@Yachii @chris_m
in case you guys did not know yet
you can also add a link to your image in the bbcode
so when people click your image you get directed to another page or website
Code:
[url=][/url]
put them before and after the img bbcode tags
after = the website link

i would of shown a better thing but the forum would not allow me

When you use that feature; still in your edit post window, the attached image has two links labeled "Insert: Thumbnail Full Image". You can click either one to insert it as a thumbnail or a full image respectively.

However, you may also just copy/paste the image from the source and into the post, in which case, it will attach it in its full size. The only limitation is the image size limit that the forum imposes. In that case, you may either resize the image prior to attaching it, or hot link it from an image hosting service.
