Title: Help with uploading/linking images to a post
Post by: Duke2go on October 26, 2020, 06:47:40 pm
I haven't really been active here on RHDN for quite awhile and it seems that things have changed since I've been gone. I'm having problems uploading/linking images to my posts. I used to link to photobucket, but now they want to charge for that service, and with the pandemic, money is tight. I opened up an account with ImgBB that gave me embed links for the images that I've uploaded, but when I used the insert image function nothing showed up in the post. If anyone could give me some guidance, or even recommend another free site that will work, I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.  :beer:

You need to go to your link, then right click on the image and copy the link to the image itself.

Then post it as usual between img tags.

Hi Duke2go,

i highly recommend imgur: https://imgur.com/
So far it doesn't seem like they are either deleting or asking for an account to upload pictures.
Even those i uploaded years ago are still up, without any issues.

A great option is to use google photos.
Create a shared folder inside it, save the image in the folder, preview the image and copy the address of the image.
Do not be surprised, as the extension of the image does not appear.
