Newbie guide to adding pictures to posts

Postby jasonec » Thu Oct 29, 2015 5:54 pm

CGCC traditionally hasn't stored any pictures that you want to add to your posts.
This is a good thing as it prevents any image copyright trolls from caring about the site whatsoever.
However, you can easily add pictures to your post by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Upload your image to a picture sharing site such as http://imgur.com
Go to http://imgur.com (or use the Imgur mobile app) and click "upload images"
Once it has been uploaded, right click your image on the Imgur website and choose "Copy image URL"


Step 2: Paste the location (URL) of your image into your post on CGCC
In the body of your post, simply right click and choose "Paste"
This will paste the location of your image into the post, and should look something like this:

Code: Select all

Hey - check out my cool pic:

Step 3: Enclose the location (URL) of your image in your post with [Img] tags
Highlight the entire http://i.imgur.com/3JDnwxT.png line in the previous step and click the Img button in the post toolbar.
This will put tags around your URL, and should look something like this:

Code: Select all

Hey - check out my cool pic:

When you submit your post, your image will automatically be shown!

Yeah - you can also upload attachments on the new CGCC (I just didn't want to mention it for the reason in the first post, because, technically, they are actually stored on the CGCC server ;-) )

You just go to the Attachments tab at the bottom of your post and choose Add files.

You can leave it at that (in which case it shows up as an "attachment" that is pre-viewed), or click the Place inline button next to your uploaded file to show it.

Here is a picture (placed inline) of some kids with an awesome costume for Halloween (Forrest Gump and Lieutenant Dan):
