Shiny saber you got there, let me fix that.

With Photobucket taking a turn and charging for their picture hosting I thought I'd make a replacement thread for those unfamiliar with imgur.com and their hosting service.

I won't be going into making a profile on imgur, for that you'll have to do a little research. In this thread I'm just going with the quick and simple upload option.



1) Go to imgur and click the "New Post" option in the upper left corner and select "Upload Images"




2) Click on "Browse" to select and open the image(s) you want to upload.




3) From there your image will upload and you will need to right click it and select "Copy Image Address" or something similar depending on your browser.




4) Place the link in your post where you would like the image to appear and highlight it. Click the insert image icon on the forum tool bar.





It's as simple as that, from there your images should show up on the forum without issue.
I'm not sure how simple this is to do via mobile so keep in mind you may need to do a little experimenting if you're not working at a laptop or desktop.
It's important to note you can't re access the images you post without a link if you don't set up an account - but that's optional.

Mobile version of imgur is way different, as any imgurian will tell you(desktop vs app user war)

So, for now, I'm stuck not posting anything. All it will do is display the link address, and that's annoying and don't want anyone clicking on it and all that, so blah. Love imgur though for all it's hilarious content

i know how to set profile pic with imgur. its a bit tricky though

it involves using a pic thats been already posted using Drahcir's above method.
special thanks to Drahcir for the Imgur method
 
1) go to that post and click on either Quote or Modify
2) highlight and copy the imgur URL but ONLY starting at the http://
3) go to your profile settings and paste it on the bar next to "i have my own pic"
4) select "change profile"

try it. good luck

I've been trying to figure this out but every time I paste the link into the profile area of the forum, the photo will never actually appear. Can someone help out?

I'm seeing the picture from this link:

as your profile pic.  Is that what you meant or did you mean a photo down in the signature area, below your post?

Hey DB! Thanks for posting this. I spent a good amount of time in the last few days trying to get it to work, just using the Imgur method. Happy I stumbled upon your reply! thanks!
