    How to Post Images

    Greetings, recruits!

    In order to keep server loads to a minimum, direct image uploads are disabled on the forums.

    HOWEVER! You can still share images or screenshots with other users! Here's how to do it:

    1. Upload the image to a third-party hosting site
    The most commonly used site is imgur.com. You can create and account and upload images there for free.

    2. Use the forum BBCode to link to the image
    Simply use the following code:
    Code:
    [img]IMAGE URL HERE[/img]
    and your image will be displayed right in your post!

    That's all there is to it!

    A few notes on uploaded images:
    Images that display content prohibited on the forums are not allowed and will be removed. This includes images that contain foul language, inappropriate or sexual content, personal contact information, etc.
    The moderators always err on the side of caution and are fairly strict about enforcing the above rule.
    ・If a post was deleted that you feel should be allowed, please send a private message to this account (Ateam Admin) to appeal for a restoration. If we decide the image is okay, we will undelete the post.


    Now post away!

    Edit:
    Kirin~ nicely made a video to explain how to post images using imgur.
    Kirin~, you rock.

    I'm not too sure about this, but it may be helpful to add that there are no spaces in the code, at least, that worked for me. If I did have spaces between the brackets and the link, it would just change into a link

      I do have a question in regards to profile picture though. Whenever i try to put an image as my profile picture, it says failure to use the image or something, and it also says that my library does not support the file

        It has to be 100x100 max!

        Try going on an image size converter and change the dimensions to 100x100. That's what I did.

        In the upload area it does say "200 by 200". But it seems to only allow 100 by 100. Maybe that is something Ateam Admin can look into correcting.

      Just as a clarification for the codes, don't try to upload them through URL instead paste them directly into the message that you're trying to post~

        I need help with the code

        Do you state the image code twice? (http//:blahblah) where it says (/IMG). And in the beginning of the code, image?



        ---edit---
        Ty you guys! I finally got it figured out, and got a signature! I discovered. You cannot add a signature on my moble device lol. 99% of it saying "unexpected error"

          Here's a few tips for uploading images:


          - Upload your screenshots to Imgur.


          - Don't forget to resize your images! Imgur keeps them in the 1080 x 1920 ratio. So for every image you plan to upload, change the left number to something smaller. 350 sounds reasonable. Before doing that, make sure the "Lock Proportions" box is checked.


          - If you want to bypass the "4 images per post only" restriction, you can use a photo editor like Paint. Resize all your images first. Then copy them from Imgur, pasting them all into one Paint file. Just drag and drop the images next to each other vertically. Save the Paint file, then upload it to Imgur.


          This would help make it so when you embed an image, it won't be oversized when viewing the page on desktop (mobile looks fine as is, but desktop is different). It will also help you cram more images per post.

            What kind of image resizer would you prefer? It's been two weeks and j can't seem to upload even one picture. Mostly because idk how to even use the code. I found one, then it said the image would be permanently deleted forever.

            Lavender Imgur.

            Go to the Desktop version of the site and log into your account. Highlight your username at the top-right corner and click ''Images.'' Then, you'll see all the images you uploaded.

            Click on the image you want to resize, then if you mouse over the image, you'll see ''edit image'' on the bottom-right. Click that, then set the left dimension to something like 350. Leave the ''Lock Proportions'' box checked, and the image will be resized with the same ratio.

          I'm also having problems uploading an image for my profile pic. I resized it to 350, then when that didn't work, I resized it to something like 100x73. Still nothing.

            I'll explain.

            It's simple, and easy! You'll get it done in no time! (Sadly I didn't but some the minute they joined forums!)
            Go to an image size converter like pic resize and resize the image to 100x100. That's what I did. Save it to your library, then when you go to your Profile, at the bottom click Avatar on ur picture (right now the person) and click the first slot, and select the image you resized.

            To post images, details are right above.

            P.S.mon pic resize (no spaces), click resize Pixels, NOT percent!

            Some image editors allow you to save in various qualities or you could find a larger and/or higher quality version of the original to resize.

            Reminder:

            Uploading pictures on mobile does not work quiets as easily as it does on a PC.
            Trust me...I've gone there a couple times..😅

            Unless you have a more advanced mobile device. Then don't listen to me. My device is IPad mini.
            You'll probably end up with an unexpected error, invalid picture, invalid file, or even all at once!

              Sorry to bother you but since I am on mobile and I literally have no idea what I'm doing, can you explain the image post thing? I'm dying of not knowing

              @You,I'mHavingTroubleTagging
              1). Upload image to imgur
              2). Click on the image and then there should be a thing where it gives these all types of codes, look for BBCode
              3). Copy and paste it into "Write something..."

              How I do it, since Inhave an IPad:

              1). Upload to imgur through Imgur App
              2). Go to Safari and click on the "image" button in the "imgur" tab
              3). Look for BBCode
              4). Paste into "Write something..."

              I feel like an idiot for making five hundred posts about his X.x

              You might need to upload it from a desktop because when I try to do it on my phone it says like a weird message thing (which is also why I don't have a signature because I'm too lazy). However if you're trying to put a picture in, look at the How to Post images topic, and just paste the code in your signature. :3

              You need to use something to resize the picture to 100x100 pixels and save it as a jpg file. Then you can go to your profile and upload it from there.
