Workaround for posting photos on STS via Imgur
« on: April 08, 2016, 02:52:26 am »

This is step by step posting of images using imgur. If you choose a different image hosting site skip to step 3b.

Step 1. Upload image to imgur and select the EDIT Box


Step 2. On top right corner change larger pixel to 800 or other and keep ratio... Then SAVE


Step 3a. Now on the right hand corner there will be a 'BBcode (Forum)' IF ONLY UPLOADED 1 PHOTO


Step 3b. IF UPLOADED A GROUP OF PHOTO you need to right click on photo and click 'copy image location'


Step 4. Now just paste the link and the image should post if you just 'copied image location' just use the image icon on STS and paste

The pic of step 3a, if you look on the actual screen where 'Share this Image' is, below the first 3 link options visible is one labeled 'Embed in Forum' and it's already made up with the [img /img] on either side, so it would just be a copy paste.

I found this one: https://gofile.io/index.php

No idea how secure it is tho. Kinda cool that you can set a password and an expiration date.

Imgur gives me trouble sometimes. Mostly when uploading multiple pictures at once.

I just used this and without any signup or logon I was able to easily store a photo and they give a link to the photo,
as well as a link to remove the posted photo. 

Thanx!
