Embedding videos and photos


Recommended Posts

I'm using a tablet and tweets are easy, but posting a picture seems to be impossible. I don't have a mouse so can't highlight and copy the url. I've tried saving links and pics to no avail. Maybe I'm just sol because I'm using a tablet.

So is there a consensus on the replacement for imgur? What works, is free, and preferably has mobile apps?

imgbb seems to have a lot of the same functionality on laptop. Paste address or copied image onto the front page, and it will upload.

Not sure about mobile.

Sorry that I'm so dumb. How do I post an original image that does not have a url? Do I have to upload my image to a website? Thanks. 

If you prefer not to use imgur, there is a workaround that lets you use google drive.

1. Upload the image to drive, then click on the image and "get a shareable link."

2. Paste that link in the URL over here. You now have to change one piece of code. 

The drive URL will look like this:

//drive.google.com/open?id= followed by the text string of the file 

Replace: 

open?id=

with this:

uc?export=view&id=

The image will now be viewable on message boards. 

That is how I post my favorite Hamm images:

uc?export=view&id=17FQ-AMBY3MZdC_WDY4Nre

imgur used to have a feature where it would give you the bbcode with tags. I don't think you need those.

Just copy the image location (or open image in new tab) and paste that URL in here:

e.g. (without the spaces)

https:// i. img ur . com / x25JFvJ . jpg
