[GUIDE] How to post screenshot/image (with pictures)

#1 » Post by OkweL » 03 Nov 2010 21:01

So, looks like more and more people are having problems or don't know how to upload somewhere and post an image. Here's the quick guide:
  1. Open your webbrowser and go to http://www.imageshack.us

    Image
  2. Click on "Browse", locate your screenshot, picture, photo or any other image and click on "Upload now."

    NOTE: You can upload more than 1 image at once, but I suggest you first to look how it works with just one.
  3. Wait till page will refresh itself and shows you results (example upload):

    Image
  4. You see confirmation that image has been uploaded succesful, its name, thumbnail and links. You need to focus at first on 2 kinds - "Direct Link" and 2 bit different "Forum Thumbnails".
    1. If you are sure that image is pretty small you can copy "Direct Link" and use forum build-in IMG bb-code to post it. Result will be like that:

      Image

      You can send those links also to friends in mails, instant messengers (MSN, ICQ etc.), paste on chats and at any place you want. This is basically normal link leading directly to image. When someone click it or paste it in webbrowser he will see nothing else than only this image.
    2. ELSE use thumbnail links so it will look like (an old pic from one of my swedish friends):

      Image

      Everyone who click the thumbnail will get a new window opened with full size.
There are 2 bit different thumbnail links because of many different board scripts. First should work on all. In case it wont, use second. No point in explaining more.

Additionally you can use some services like http://www.tinyurl.com, so you can upload image, make direct link shorter or with custom name, copy it and paste in example in your chat window in WoW. So players don't have to alt+tab and copy letter by letter whole long chain.

into

Code: Select all

http://tinyurl.com/pirate-in-internet
In example above, I've used custom name "pirate-in-internet".

This is VERY usefull to cut espacially long links to google maps, some long addresses in online newspapers and such, like:

Code: Select all

Hope this helps.
