OMG, I learned something today

I learned how to post images on imgur, and to post a link from there to a post here. I have not figured out yet how to post the image into my post though. At least I can get the link though.

Same here...I did it through the app so maybe I need to do it from the website and not the app

I downloaded the imgur app, The app takes you to the website. I just wish I understood how to get the image in my post.

It didn’t look anything like her post, and I couldn’t find any instructions on the imgur website. I’m not giving up, I will learn how to do it someday.

You guys are doing great :D Don't worry, you'll have it in no time ;)

You can each just edit the posts you've already made on the contest thread using the instructions below and then your images should show in your posts. Remember to preview your post before you submit it to make sure that it works.

Dollbear, all you have to do for your post is....
Highlight (select) one of the images you've already posted. Once highlighted, press the Img button that is above the smiley options, like you see here in this pic. This will insert the needed image tags. Do that to each of the images, preview the post, then submit it.



Kissable, go and view the image on imgur that you posted the link for (you can just tap on the link you posted). Then when you are viewing it, press on the pic until a menu pops up. Then select copy. Go to your post and paste that image into it (you can delete the old link if you'd like to). Then follow the instructions I gave to Dollbear to insert the image tags.

This should fix both of your posts. Let me know if you guys need more help :D

A note: there are instructions for the app a little farther down in the instructions on page one. If it is different than what you see in my instructions, please let me know. I don't use the app, and those instructions were provided by someone else. If it is still not the same, then I may download the app so that I can give current accurate instructions, so please let me know if it is different ;)

Yay!! Way to go! :D :D :D

Look at all those pets! :D

I love visuals, what a colorful and proud forum we have.

Maui is excellent at working with you step by step.

My devices can't use imgur so I use tinypic.com.

Others use various sites too. Whatever works is great, we get to share even more. :D

I'm a pauper too Kissable, I once had millions.....but no more, but I still have loads of fun. :D

Great job Kissable! And you are most welcome! It's easy once you get use to it, so it's all smooth sailing from here ;) Enjoy posting pictures!

A lot of people get stuck in the same places that you two just did. I've been thinking of adding that bit of extra info I just shared into my instructions, and it seems that I really should. I'll make sure to do that this evening :D

And like Kitty mentioned, there are a couple other recommended sites that many people use. They can be easier than imgur as well. I myself only use imgur, but that's because I know it in and out :lol: Though I have used the other sites as well while doing research. There are links to those other sites at the top of the instructions on page one ;)
