  • posting a pic from Imgur
  • I can't seem to find the the image code to copy & paste in the text box or the image URL box from Imgur.....what am I missing? They offer several choices of code, but none seem to work.

  • I hate learning new software. They just upgraded my work computer to Windows 7Pro 64bit. Now I got this to deal with.

  • These are a work in progress but I believe are correct as far as they go:

    Imgur
    Setting up an account is very easy. You only need to decide on a user name, a password and a email address to use.
    (You may also sign up using your Facebook or other accounts)

    (Note: You will receive emails from them so you may not want to use your main account if you have multiple accounts.)

    Type www.imgur.com into your browser. The Imgur home page will open. Over on the right side of the header you will see the words "sign up"

    Click on sign up and a box will open near the center of your screen. Enter your username, email address, password, repeat password in the boxes provided.

    Click on the blue box labeled Next

    The Imgur home page will reappear with your user name displayed towards the right side of the header.

    Once you have signed in, hover your cursor over your user name.

    A drop down menu will appear listing:
    Images
    Albums
    Several other categories.
    Down at the very bottom of the drop down is where you sign out of the service.

    To Add Images: Click on Images (Once you have images uploaded they will appear at this stage) Under your name and slightly to the left you will see a green box labeled: Add Images

    Click on Add Images and a window will open into which you transfer your images. It will offer options on getting photos. I use Browse. Follow on-screen instructions to complete the upload process.

    You do not need to worry about resizing the images as Tyler Neff, President, Webmaster & Administrator of the ntractorclub, has them automatically displaying at a maximum width of 830 pixels.

    You may set up a Album before or after you upload a photo. You may also move the photos into a album after the fact.

    To set up a Album, Click on Albums and follow on-screen instructions. You will have the opportunity to leave the album Public where anyone can see it, Hidden where you grant access by giving the Direct URL, or Secret where you are the only person who can see it. Simple!

    Posting on ntractor
    Hover your cursor over your user name.

    A drop down menu will appear listing:
    Images
    Albums
    Several other categories.

    Click on Images The images you have uploaded will appear.

    Place your cursor on the desired image. LEFT Click

    The image will be shown enlarged and along the right side will be various links.

    Select Direct Link and then click the COPY button.

    Go to your open post on ntractor. You have options:

    (1) To put the image directly in your message type Sample below



    You may enter text before, between and after the pictures. A space between multiple pictures aids in view-ability.

    (2) Paste the link into "Optional Image URL" on forum "post a message" page. This allows you to add a title and is a better choice for those who have slow internet connections as it does not force them to open the image.

    These instructions written with the assistance of Dave#1. The HTML programming code was "borrowed" from the information on adding multiple images found on the ntractorclub site, written by Tyler Neff. Option (2) was also "borrowed" from Tyler. Instructions checked and verified by Larry Frechette.

    Note: For a single use it is not even necessary to set up an account.

  • After you pull the picture down that you want to post, hover over that picture, the code will appear. Took a while for me to find that out.

  • Try using the "HTML(websites/blogs)" link, just press the copy button, then paste into your post.

    I'm still trying to figure Imgur out. I find the site awkward to navigate. Adding pics to an album is strange. Also, images show up in two modes, only one has the list of links (including the html one). I'll get this figured out yet.
