1. You need to right click on the photo you want

And then copy and paste the link. I always preview mine to make sure it turned out okay - including the size.

3. I've been using that one, too, since we can no longer use Photobucket

I choose the size that says "for message boards" and use the direct link.

6. That's the issue with most photos - from news stories too, they're way too big

With Photobucket, I could resize any photo or crop it. With this site, I just have to upload the correct size and choose the right link - but I had to do that with Photobucket, too.

7. Good to know, thanks!

Photobucket wasn't nearly as user friendly as this site. Wonder how long before we'll need to become "members"?

8. Well, I liked Photobucket because you could "edit" any photo

Choose the size or crop it, even make it brighter. I've also learned to search for a duplicate photo for a news story to find an identical one that's the right size and has a link that works! But I also learned about this site right here on DU and so far it's worked fine for me - and I did "join" since I uploaded 3 categories of photos and worried about finding them again.

10. So far, I've been able to upload one photo at a time

from my photo library (on iPad or iPhone) and copy and paste the link without having to download any personal photos. Hopefully this site stays around as it works great!

11. It's worked for me, too, so far

And I've used it for the same reason that I originally learned how to use Photobucket right here on DU - to post a photo of my dog!

13. That's my dog, Jack

He's a Brussels Griffon, pet shop rescue. He doesn't enjoy having his picture taken so most of the decent ones I have were taken in my car when he's just left the vet or the groomer and he's happy and distracted.

15. He's a very good dog, adopted him at 5 months

Previously, I've adopted senior dogs, so he was the only puppy I've had since the pup I grew up with. But Jack just turned 12 a week ago today, hard to believe. Time sure flies...

17. Puppies are tough, LOL

I trained my first puppy myself, but I took Jack to doggy class - twice. I'm thinking he may need a refresher.

And senior dogs are the best, I've adopted several. The eldest was my beloved cocker spaniel, Barney, who was 10 or 11 when he found me - and I had him for 8 wonderful years. I sure hope that Jack is with me for at least that long.

9. For my personal photos (or ones I've photoshopped) I use Imgur.com

Create an account (you can use Facebook). Then select New Post > Upload Images Then Browse to the image on your computer and select it. After the photo is in your library, you can right click the image and select Copy Image Location. Paste this link in your post.

Like this:



For an image from the web, just right click, select Copy Image Location and paste the link:



Make sure it ends with .jpg .png or .gif

For YouTube videos, copy the link in the Address Bar and paste it in your post:



That's it. Easy as pie.
