    How To Post Pictures

    The best way to post pictures is to upload them to some photo-hosting site. If you don't use a photo-hosting site, try imgur.com, you don't need to create an account there, you can just drag & drop pictures to it, and they have apps to upload pictures straight from your phone as well.

    Once you've uploaded a picture, you'll have a URL for it. Put that URL in between IMG tags in your post, like this:

    [img]http://i.imgur.com/ovthCi3.gif[/img]

    Or like this:



    That will give you a nice photo in your post, kinda like this:

    Uwe, what about adding "How to Post AutoScans" to the title and thread so you won't have to keep doing the Code wrap thing for most of us?

    Uwe, I just went there and the first required step was to create a free account. You may want to clarify that you don't have to pay to create an account.

    You didn't get the Upload Images at the top right ?
    I have only used imgur a couple times but it let me upload by clicking on the Computer button without an account.

    Yup I just went with a browser that I normally never use (and which isn't logged into any account there) and uploaded an image without any account. Apparently Romad is doing something different than the rest of us.

    Ah, I finally figured it out. Imgur.com still relies on old-fashioned Flash instead of using modern HTML 5 replacements. Due to the security holes in Flash, I've disabled it. OK, I guess I'll have to look elsewhere for a place that doesn't require the use of Flash. Maybe when Apple updates iCloud later this year I might be able to use my free space there. I'll have to go back and see exactly what was said at WWDC about the iCloud changes.

    Flash and Java - two things I have blocked everywhere.
    Should have mentioned that, but forgot.
