How to upload an image to the forum

Postby LukeP » Tue Apr 16, 2013 7:54 pm

It is easy to post a screenshot/picture to the forum. It just requires a few simple steps.
NOTE: to ensure that your entire screenshot fits on the page, we suggest reducing the image size to around 640 x 480.

Pictures cannot be uploaded directly to the forum from your computer. To post an image, you need to have a link to the picture. The easiest way to do this is by using Drop Box. If you do not have a Drop Box account, you can set one up for free at dropbox.com

Then follow these steps:
take the picture that you want to post and copy it into your "public" folder in Drop Box. You can do this on your computer/device, or on the Drop box website. Then right-click on the picture and choose "copy public link."

Now go to the forum and create your post. When you are ready to insert the image, click on the "img" button (in the options above the text area). This adds the [img] tags on either side of your courser. Then hit paste to add the link. It should look like this: [img]http://www.the-link-to-my-picture.com[/img]


If you are having trouble, try the following:
Make sure the link to your image is in between the [img] and [/img] tags.

Make sure the link works. To test it, paste the link directly into the address bar of your browser and see if it loads the image.

If the link does not work, make sure the image is in your "public" folder on drop box.

If you are still having trouble posting an image, head to the user discussion board and ask for additional help. We read and respond to all questions posted in the forum. so don't hesitate to ask!
