This is a common question on the forums, so I made a picture guide to help some of you out that may not be familiar with uploading images.

 

Step 1:  Click on "my account" to the right under your forum user navigation

 

 

Step 2: Click on the edit button of your forum account

 

 

Step 3: Scroll down to "Signature Settings" and click on the little box that says "image" when you hover over it

 

Alternatively, you can drag a picture you see from another website into the white space below and the image will automatically appear. I have confirmed this with FireFox, I am unsure about other browsers.

 

 

Step 4: In image properties, copy and paste the URL* of the image into the box indicated, then click okay.

 

*Don't know what the URL for a picture is? If it's a picture on your desktop, you first need to upload it. There are many places you can upload your pictures, such as imgur, photobucket, and tinypic. I personally use and recommend imgur. Once you upload your picture, copy the URL/direct link of the picture and paste it into the box as shown. If it's a picture already online, right click and open the image in a new tab or click to "copy the image location". The options will vary based on your browser.

 

 

You can now see your image in the signature box! Just remember to click "save" at the bottom of the page afterwards. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

*Psst... What is a subject?*

I find that Tinypic is easiest, but okay. Great guide, by the way! If I hadn't already known what to do, I would've just learned. Simple, but clear. =)

And I'm so glad that people like you are willing to help others who are struggling. This is what makes the world go 'round.

Thanks, I'm glad you think it

Thanks, I'm glad you think it would be helpful. The only reason why I recommend imgur is because you do not need an account to upload to it, and the site is cleaner and free of ads.

Excellent guide! There are

Excellent guide! There are still many who do not know how to edit their signatures.

 

Please feel free to use my tutorial as well. It is a guided step by step tutorial on how to upload images to Tinypic.com, a free media uploading website. From there, users will be able to upload any of their personal artwork, photographs, screenshots, etc to gain access to the URL code needed.

 

Here is the link--->http://forum.schoolofdragons.com/content/how-post-imageartworkgif-your-signature-or-post

 

I also check the thread through out the day to answer any questions. :-)

Update!

If you are new to uploading images, here is a guide on how to use Imgur, a website that is free to use, has high quality uploads, and is not littered with ads. Best of all, you do NOT need an account to upload pictures! Your pictures uploaded are private unless you later submit it to the public gallery.

 

Step 1: Go to www.imgur.com and click on the "upload images" button at the top

 

 

Step 2: You will be prompted with multiple ways to upload your picture. You can drag and drop it from your desktop, click browse to find it in a folder, or even ctrl+v if you have it copied on your clipboard!

 

 

Step 3: You can drag and drop and add multiple files to upload together. There is also an option to make an "album" for easily viewing all of your photos together. I recommend the "blog" album if you choose this feature. Either choice you make, click "Start Upload"

 

 

Step 4:

I decided not to go with the album feature this time. Here I have a single image with all of its properties. Copy the "image link" or direct image link to get your image URL! Alternatively, you can (depending on your browser) right click on the image and click "open image in new tab" or "copy image location" to find the direct URL for that image.

 

 

If you have any questions, let me know and I'll be glad to help!

She is a proud elder of the

and fill in the google form by a link on the page.

 

Her not-so-large and lovely dragon team:

  1. Raincutter. It's actually a deadly nadder, but her name is confusing. She's the head of the family, and one of the most skilled dragons here. She loves battling, but she isn't very good at it. She doesn't like going on stable quests, but she takes the responsibility of doing it.

  2. SkyGlower, a flightmare. The oldest one in here, but he gave up the leadership. LOVES racing, and Fram loves doing it with him.

  3. Groundsplitter (problems with names again), a whispering death. Admires sceneries from the boulder stables, spends time with his sis Rootcutter, hangs out by himself.

  4. Rootcutter, whispering death, Groundsplitter's sis (that's not just my fantasy, they came out of the same bundle of eggs). She has to be doing something all the time. So she's the most often stable quest completer, sometimes she tries to battle with IcyBlue.

  5. IcyBlue, or just Icer, a groncicle. A really tuff and fighty dragon, the main battle dragon in the team. Sometimes he comes on a trip for his home Icestorm Island, so Fram has to mind her business without him.

  6. BasicBrown, a gronckle. The youngest dragon in the team. Not a very active dragon. She loves helping in the farm, she also enjoys going on stable quests with Raincutter and nobody else.

  7. Swamper, a mudracker. A young playful dragon. Seems like he considers SkyGlower his mom... He's the only tidal dragon in the team, and he enjoys is. He just loves playing and getting everything aroud wet.

8. Honeytrap, a sweet death. Though she's young, the has a few unique skills, which are very helphul for everyone. So she is usually also really busy. When she's not, she like to sneak around on the beach and attack unsuspecting people for fun. Nothing dangerous, really!

9. Slicer, a razorwhip. She appears to be not as cute dragon as Windsheare. And she managed somehow to get on the wrong side of everyone. She thinks she's the sharpest and deadliest dragon around, so she shoul be the boss. But everyone respects Raincutter, and the isn't going to pas the leadership. Slicer also thiks she's the fastest dragon, and that freaks SkyGlower out. So there's nothing surprising in finding her paralized at the center of the stables... Of course, they both get a talking-off after thet. But, however, she is a really beautiful dragon at least.

10. Trumphet, a death song. I just couldn't leave the poor little thing out in the vast and unpleasant world... I'm a bit tired of creating stories, okay?

11. Sparky, a grapple grounder. It just arrived today, so no stories yet. And I forgot what color it is, sorry.

 

This siggy will be updated soon. There's going to be a photosession with my beloved dragons.
