How do you upload an image here?

Can an image be uploaded directly to the site? Or does one have to link to an image off-site?

TIA

Hi, civollapelle and welcome to the forum!  Currently, this forum does not allow for the direct uploading of images into your post.  That is to say, this forum does not "host" images other than some avatars.  The best option is to have your images stored online somewhere and to then paste the direct link for the image between the image tags.  (The image tags are available by clicking the small icon just to the right of the YouTube icon, that is visible when you are replying or creating a post.)  You insert the link to your image in the dialog box that appears and can then click Preview, rather than post, to assure that your image will appear.

General images that you find on the Internet can provide the link by right-clicking on the image and choosing "View Image" then copying the link that is in your browser URL field. 

Don't forget to stop by the Welcome Thread For New Members, located on the Living Room board and introduce yourself!

Here is the site I use. I got on it purely to post pics on here. Make sure you use the direct link provided once youve uploaded your image as the regular link wont make the pic show in your post.

Thank you. That's useful. It took me a while to figure out how to actually post the link here so the image would appear. I found reference to the img tag, and that finally worked. Thanks again, I will look at your link for future image links. Thanks again.
