LAST EDIT and correct information: 26 Oct 2018 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- There are two methods to posting an image on these forums, Upload & Link But first, a couple of ground points; 1) So first thing - always upload an image where practical. This ensures images are on our servers and will never break or be lost. Max upload is 10MB 2) All registered members have permission to upload images into public threads. There are no restrictions for uploading images. 3) Only Gold & Silver members (subscription accounts) may upload images into Private Messages. 4) It is not possible to 'copy & paste' using Ctrl C, Ctrl V from other websites, or from a document on your computer, and capture the image like you can capture the text. (You can not do that on Facebook either, and they are much more clever than us). Method 1: UPLOAD from computer or phone All registered members may upload images using the 'Upload Pic/File' button. This process is very similar to Facebook and other social media platforms. The button looks like this; Full Size Images & Thumbnails Once your image has been uploaded you may choose to post it as either a Thumbnail or a Full Size image. In most cases we highly recommend using Full Image WAIT until thumbnail is processed With very large files you will need to wait until the thumbnail is fully processed before you may post your image. See next... Adding Images to an Existing Post -When editing an existing post, find the upload button by first clicking the More button. Upload Restrictions - Each image upload is limited to10MB file size* - You may only upload a maximum of 5 images per post. - Only JPEG, PNG & GIF image file types may be uploaded (allowed extensions .jpeg .jpg .jpe .png .gif ) - Portable Document Format & Text files may also be upload (allowed extensions .pdf .txt) * About Large Image Files 10MB is a fair size image and uploads greater than 4MB may take some time to process depending on your Internet connection -- whether you are on wi-fi at home or in a public place, or using your phone's 3G/4G data connection. There are many variables and a 10MB image may take upwards of 1 minute to fully upload. Mobile Phone Note Uploading to these forums from you phone is generally a slower process than a modern social media app. This is because the image resize processing is done after the full size image is uploaded to our servers. (A modern app resizes first before upload, which is much faster. These forums are a website and not a phone application and as such resizing an image first on your phone is not available to us.) About Animated Gifs As of July 2018, animated gifs are now supported. You may also embed animated gifs from Imgur or Gify as a Media link. Questions or trouble getting it to work?

Once you have copied the url of an image, you paste it with the image button - watch this video; Watch the video for an example on how to LINK an image (Method 2). This method is how most of the images you see on our forums are inserted. A good tutorial on how to find and copy the correct web address (URL) of an image that you have found elsewhere on the web may be found here; http://www.wikihow.com/Get-the-URL-for-Pictures Notes about online Photo & Document Storage Services Firstly, it is always better to upload an image than it is to link an image from a personal cloud service such as Flickr, Imgur, Dropbox, Google Photos, Microsoft OneDrive etc. There are more steps involved with linking from a cloud host and the images tend to break and be forever lost over time as the platforms constantly make service changes. As example, Photobucket famously withdrew all 3rd party hosting in mid 2017 and hundreds of millions of images were instantly removed everywhere from sites and forums like these. However, if you wish to link instead of upload we have created some tutorials to demonstrate the process from the following online storage services; Dropbox tutorial Google Photos tutorial Microsoft OneDrive tutorial Questions or trouble getting it to work?
