Posting multiple pics

kodom087 z9aDecember 10, 2012

I know the question has arisen a few times about posting pics and multiple pics in a single entry. So here's my short little tutorial of how I do it.

First, I use imgur (.com). I like it because it's free and all you have to do is click and drag photos from your computer onto the browser window and it uploads them. Does multiple uploads that way as well.

Secondly, click the thumbnail of picture that you loaded onto Imgur and another window pops open showing different code links. In this case select the "HTML Image (Website/Blog)" and copy link and paste the link in your post. Repeat as many times as needed for multiple pictures. (Next 2 following picture examples)

I hope this helps. I like Imgur because you can even arrange photos into albums (even after posting links in forums) and the code stays the same so your pictures in a forum won't disappear like how it does when using flickr or other image hosting sites.

Sorry for the large pictures but didn't want to shrink them before posting so they could be clearly seen in the examples.

Bumping this post per a request I got in my email. I couldn't respond directly since they didn't have their email thing enabled on GW. Hope this helps a few others with same question.

Kirk,
Thanks so much for your tutorial. The imgur is a nice site and very user friendly. Makes a big difference also with your images.
Had been trying with Photobucket, but just read that since they have changed some things it is making it difficult for many.
Either way this one is super,
Thanks again,
Rick

Welcome, Rick!

I like imgur a lot for the reasons you stated. Eventually when I figure out the image hosting on my own server I'll switch to that but for now this one does the job and does it well.
