    [ Guide ] Uploading images

    Given seen people asking how to or don't know adding pics to forums as much in contest stuff and can't find a guide ill try make one.

    1. Add the image to a uploader:
    Imgur- easy to upload to and can stick in a album
    picload - like imgur and got multiple links
    trovesaurus - more trovians can view the image
    Deviant art - general art spot
    imgbb - basic one
    gyazo - useful uploader but need to download
    The forum has a image uploader but it has size limits

    2. Click on the insert image above the box:
    Its this symbol here -->
    Itll say "please enter the URL of the image"
    Most of the time the link to the image alone wouldn't work and show nothing for pc but show the image missing on mobile. So try Direct link to it
    Noot: if get some type of problem try all the links available to post

    3. Check and link:
    Go to advanced setting if not there and preview to see if image shows. Just in case could do the image link as well just for safety

    For general posting images:
    If on pc you can click copy on a image and paste it in reply and it'll tend to work. other option is to use insert link.
    Mobile just use the insert picture and do the link.

    Art programs could use for making images:
    Fire alpaca - extremely good program (free)
    Gimp - number of fun little tools bit easy to use (I use this)
    Photoshop - pros most likely use this and make all sorts of neat stuff
    MS paint - classic

    Remember you can always edit a comment to add in images and make adjustments
    Also I don't want to be told "don't help the competition" I would rather see neat stuff or some color combinations. That's what helps spark reference and other ideas

    I once made a guide on how to post images, but topic with that post got deleted.

    Anyways, Imgur is the simplest way to post an image I know. You can upload directly from clipboard which really helps if you want to show e.g. part of screenshot. The rough guide looks like this:
    1) find an image you want to post
    2) copy it to clipboard (the image data, not file. Irfan View is especially helpful here)
    3) open Imgur and press CTRL + V
    4) when upload is complete, right-click image and select "copy image URL" (or something similar)
    5) press the forum's "Insert image" icon and press CTRL + V
    6) your image will be ready when you press ok and submit your post

    Oh rip that guide. Well at least hopefully theres more pictures and little less missing pictures and they don't know it and miss out. Its nicer to scroll and view all the stuff
