    ImgBB — Upload Image — Free Image Hosting

    This is a good working picture upload and sharing website.

    Start by registering. You can use google accounts to log in if you want to save the trouble.

    After registering, u can start to upload images. You can create new albums for each upload.

    To put in pictures in forums, select Get Embedded Code, then choose BBcode Medium Link. Copy the link(s), and simply paste them onto your forum.

    Any questions do feel free to ask me. Have fun!

    Re: How do we upload photo now?

    Testing using my Flickr account with a pic I just made "public".

    Looks like it's working to me. It's a woodcut electronic image I drew based on a 21st Century 101st Airborne paratrooper figure I had back in 2001.
    Is it visible to others? If so, looks like I can, when I do, post pix via this method in the future.

    Flickr User Steps:
    1. Set pic or album to "Public" - see bottom of Flickr page.
    2. Then click on the Share icon.
    3. Then choose embed and you'll see a field with a long string in it, see below.

    Talk about difficulty in finding the right URL for it, though:
    https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3817/...5f342662_b.jpg was what I pulled out from this entire string:
    <a data-flickr-embed="true" href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/romedome/9076632758/in/album-72157634190529637/" title="gi_joe_paratrooper_woodcut"><img src="https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3817/9076632758_765f342662_b.jpg" width="600" height="812" alt="gi_joe_paratrooper_woodcut"></a><script async src="//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js" charset="utf-8"></script>. Yuck.

    Basically, find that embed or share code, then extract out the img src URL and paste that into the OSW image field.

    Lemme kindly know, please, if there's an easier way to extract that if you're a fellow Flickr user.

    Cheers!

    Re: How do we upload photo now?

    I am trying to post a photo that is hosted on my own website and it doesn't work unless I want it to be an "attached thumbnail" which I hate. I want it to be displayed full size inline with the post text. This only seems to work if the photo is hosted on a site such as Imgur or Flickr for instance.

    For example, I have this photo hosted on my own website: http://www.alanhamby.com/ebay/arkhambody.jpg

    If I try to post that using this code it does not display anything: [IMG]http://http://www.alanhamby.com/ebay/arkhambody.jpg[/IMG]

    However if I use the same BB code with the Flickr image above it works fine: [IMG]https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3817/9076632758_765f342662_b.jpg[/IMG]

    Can we only post full size inline photos from certain image hosting sites, not from our own websites? Is it because the image hosting sites are using HTTPS instead of HTTP?

    If I can post a photo from my own website can someone tell me how to do so without it being an "attached thumbnail"?
