  • How To Post a Picture on the Forum

    Hi Everyone,

    Super simple, but I think we should cover it for those who don't know. We're going to be using http://www.imgur.com today as an example as they are an excellent host with no real bandwidth limitations or sign-up necessary! Please note, that when you are hosting files on off-site resources, VSC is not responsible in any way for the hosting and your images. Imgur fully support mobile access and has an Android/iOS app as well. Check your respective App store for more information.

    You can upload JPEG, PNG, GIF, APNG, TIFF, PDF, and XCF (GIMP) files to Imgur. Please note that TIFF, PDF and XCF (GIMP) will be converted to PNG on upload. Imgur does not currently support WEBM, MP4, or GIFV uploads. They will need to be converted before upload.

    The maximum file size for non-animated images is 20MB. The maximum file size for GIFs is 200MB. GIF files over 2MB will be converted to GIFVs. PNG files over 5MB will be converted to JPEGs.

    Non-animated images over 1MB for anonymous uploads and 5MB for account holders will be lossily compressed. All non-animated images receive lossless compression that reduces filesize while maintaining quality. Large GIFs will be converted to GIFV, which shrinks file size while maintaining high quality.


    There are four ways to upload on Imgur.
    1. Drag and drop any image to the home page.
    2. Click the "New post" button at the top of the page, which can be found in the header on all Imgur pages
    3. Drag and drop any image to your account images page while logged in, or click the blue "Add Images" button.
    4. You can upload images directly into an album by dragging and dropping directly into the post, or by clicking “add another image” at the bottom.



    Once you are done hosting it, hover over the pic on the top right there will be a down arrow. Click Get share links.


    There will conveniently be a number of types of share links, we use BBcode (bulletinboard).


    Click the lower left copy button, and paste the link onto your post, and it will be formatted properly already. Whichever host you choose is ultimately your choice, however please make sure they have ample bandwidth and support hot linking.

      It should compress the file, lossily at that. Chances are it's not a jpg, and it's another type of file, but Imgur takes everything under the sun. Not sure there. Try resizing it using an image editor and re-upping it, or use a different host.

          Yes... and this site is so you can upload and they will host the pictures on your behalf. Again, I'm not sure what error is happening, it's rather straight forward. Feel free to link from FB/imgur/photobucket etc. So long as they allow hotlinking, it should work on this site.

            Will you allow javascript in comments, it would make linking photo albums from Imgur 10000000x easier.

              Right now, the implication with js is that it's super full of sec exploits and what not IINM. I know it would make life easier, like even letting people use HTML. Buttttttt, for the most part, people seem to know how to post using BBCode just fine

              Something we can visit as we go along. Thanks for the feedback C!

                  Sorry about that, we've all been really busy trying to get the kinks worked out, and that's on the list. I'll make it over 9001 at some point! Thanks for your feedback!
