Posting links to ImageShack images ?

Postby DarkStar » Tue Jun 10, 2008 5:47 pm

Hello,
I could not find a way to send a Private Message, so I'll post my enquiry here:

Like lots of other users I am getting a lot of inspiration from noatikl, even in my early days. :)

I wonder, will it be OK to post screenshots on your forum, using ImageShack to store the images? I think that this will help a lot with queries, issues and feature requests.

PS Is there a way to send PMs?

To send us private messages, you can mail tim or pete at intermorphic dot com. :)

Your idea sounds good - I know that some others have posted screen shots on the forum - I can't figure out how off hand. :D

Hopefully some others will be able to share some alternative suggestions!

Pete

Here's an example:
Image
It's got a hyperlink so you can open the image full size (e.g. in Firefox, right-click >> Open in New Window).

What to do:
  • go to ImageShack http://imageshack.us/
  • browse to the image on your system, select it,
  • click [Host it],
  • select the "Thumbnails for forums (1)" value, copy the value and paste it into your posting,
  • or, if you want to post thei mage directly, scroll down the ImageShack page and select the "Direct link to image" value and copy it into your posting.

Or you can copy in the direct link, like this:

There's no need to register at ImageShack.

For no particular reason, the one I have been using (since my web server provider informed me I could not host pictures linked remotely/not used on my site on my server, ALWAYS read the fine print):
