Like the title said, I am looking for the best way to post pictures.

 

Right now what I am doing is posted them on imgur and then providing a link because my old method doesn't work any more. 

 

I see people using photobucket and postimage and sturf, but I haven't tried those.

Out of experience, could someone tell me the best way to post a picture without just using a link that takes you to a new tab?

 

 

 

THANKS

First, unless you want to pay a pretty big price, don't use Photobucket. Photobucket updated their terms of use back in the summer and you now have to pay to upload pictures to post on other websites. I use Postimage. Here's how to post pictures so they can appear in your post:

-Upload the picture to a photo hosting site

-Click on it to make it bigger(if you use postimage, don't know if you have to do this on other photo uploading sites)

-Right click on it

-Click open image in new tab

-Go to the new tab and copy the url address

-Then on your forum post, click the button that has a house on it. It's a little hard to see in the picture but if you look left to right, it's the one by the first A.

-When you click that button, right click the URL space and click paste. You can then change the size of your picture but make sure the lock is always locked, otherwise when you resize your picture it will start looking distorted. After you resize your picture click the ok button. Once you click ok, if you're not satisifed with the size you can click on the picture and resize it.

 

Hope this helps.

Use Gyazo!

I find Gyazo a super easy way to take screenshots!  It's completely free, and all you have to do is download it.  I use it all the time for screenshots (and not just for School of Dragons).  The one downside is that you can only view the last 10 screenshots you took (after that you have to have their URL to access them again - which you can copy if you really want to view it again- but unless you're making a screenshot comic it's not really a big deal).

 

All you do is click the Gyazo button (this will appear on your computer's task bar once you download the program), which looks like this .  Then, click on the spot where you want to take a photo, drag to create the frame, and release!  It's that easy (and much quicker and less complicated than using a photo hosting website!). Then, find the "Copy Link" button, click the drop down arrow, and select the "Direct Link URL" to copy.  Paste that link in the box HP Powers showed up above (accessed by the icon that looks like a house in the Comment task bar), and you've got yourself a picture!

 

Here's the link to download Gyazo if you're interested: https://gyazo.com/

Eris, the Night Fury

Eris is shy, reserved, and stanoffish to people she doesn't know.  It takes a lot of patience (and salmon) to gain her trust.  She loves to hang out with Katar, and they are the best of friends.  

 

 

Katar, the Nightfury:

Katar has lots of energy and is very athletic.  She loves to race anyone and will not hesitate to put on a burst of speed to win a race even if it means losing her rider!  Katar is also a huge goofball and loves to play jokes.  Her favourite food is Brown Trout, and she likes to hang out at the Edge with Eris.
