[FORUM] How to insert pictures from external websites


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

 

Today I'm going to make a very simple and useful guide. I'm sure that sometimes when you are trying to add a picture to a post, you upload to some websites like imgur.com prnt.sc etc etc.

If you direcly select: insert other media (the orange button)/insert image from URL, you won't be able to introduce links like: https://imgur.com/a/oCf3s https://prnt.sc/ilfujk and so on.

 

To do that, you need to follow the following steps:

1- Upload your picture to your favourite website

1.1- Clic browse

1.2- Select the picture

2- Once you have your picture uploaded right clic the image and select the last option

3- Now you will see a new popup in some part of your screen, it depens on the browser

3.1- Once you see that, you'll see a line marked in a blue color

3.2- Double clic on i.imgur.com/... it should select from // to .png

4- Now copy that link to the post/insert other media (the orange button)/insert image from URL and clic insert to post

5- Now your picture will be vissible in the post

Maybe it's just my browser, but when I upload to Imgur, clicking on the uploaded image gives several link options:

I just click on the Copy button next to "Direct Link", paste in the post and the image shows right away. Just tried with Screencast.com (it comes as a "Share" option with Snagit) and it's the same, once uploaded, you get a link that you can paste directly in the post, no need for complications
