It's been awhile since we last posted about getting images on the Forums. We've got a super easy new way to get them here, so strap in for a fun new how-to!


Step 1: Download Outfit Image -or- Take and Save a Screenshot
Posting a picture of your avatar has never been easier than with the Download Outfit Image button! When dressing up, click the button under your avatar:
Image

If your picture is of a room, take a screenshot! You can do this by pressing "Printscreen" or "PrtSc" on your keyboard, using the Snipping Tool (if you're using Windows 7 and up), or pressing
Command+Shift+4 (if you're using a Mac).

Save the image to your computer. Make sure to remember where you put it!


Step 2: Upload to a Hosting Site
Now that your image is saved, it needs to get on the internet. Most of our Vikings use a site called imgur - you can use whichever hosting site you'd like, but for the sake of our instructions, we'll show you how to use this one :)

Click here to open imgur.

The middle of your screen should look like this:

Image

Click the browse button. Find the image you saved earlier, and choose it to open. We're using a picture of Pablo the Power Pickle for this example!

Once the upload finishes, you should see a page that looks like this (but with your image):

Image

Hover your mouse over your image and click the down arrow in the upper right corner. Choose "Get share links" and the following should pop up:

Image

Find the BBCode (Forums) link, and click Copy.


Step 3: Post to the Forums

Come back to the Forums and simply paste what you just copied! It should look like this:

Code: Select all
[img]http://i.imgur.com/Ckgzp0Z.png[/img]


Which turns into this once posted:
Image


Step 4: You're done!
How easy was that? You can do this with any picture saved to your computer, OR imgur will let you paste any copied image straight into their uploader. Neat, huh?



Thanks for reading! Practice in the thread below, if you'd like - just remember to go back to the thread you want to post in too :heart:


Question; Once I copy the BBC forum code, where in the forum do I paste the link? Do I use the control panel, new messages. Once I learn how to paste a like into the forum then how do I view it? Sorry is you get this twice. thanks JoJo 150826557


you just post the link as is and then when you get out of edit you can view the picture. :)


Maybe my question wasn't clear, I know I post the link as is but where in the forum do I post it? do I use the control panel and edit signature or where specifically do I go in the forum to post and edit links?

Our do I paste the link right here?

I see that some people have posted animated pics of their rooms/avatars. How are we able to do that? I'd appreciate some help with this! Thank You!

In the meantime, just testing to see if I understood how to post a regular image....,
