How to post pictures

Recommended Posts

Just copy its link to the reply box, it will be automatically converted. If you wish to use a pic from your computer, you will have to upload it somewhere else before using it.

Copy and paste the direct image link into your post. If it doesn't work there's a "Insert other media" button right above "submit reply". So if pasting the URL right into the post somehow doesn't work (like if it's a direct Facebook image link, a Steam screenshot link, or a Wiki[a] link)  you can use that to post it, since posting it right into the post may not  always work 100% of the time.

You can also "right click" an image somewhere on the web, click "view image" or its equal depending on your OS and browser, and copy the URL from the resulting page. Then paste that URL into your message or into the "Insert other media" - "Insert image from URL" button.

Some websites block hotlinking and/or saving, though. Sometimes you just have to take a screen shot and upload it to your own online photo album. And then use the URL from there. I personally use Photobucket for such reasons.

If you want to post fan art that's not your own though, just try to be courteous and credit the original artist. :)
