Hello,

I know there have been several threads on posting images on Bitcointalk, but I think this one will help users trying to post specifically from imgur. I also know that in some of the past threads imgur was mentioned as well, besides others sites, but in this case there's a trick.
Many users tried recently to post from imgur but didn't succeed, after receiving a proxy error on Bitcointalk. Perhaps imgur made some changes and simply writing the link here doesn't show the picture anymore.

The solution is the following:
1. First of all, you must be at least Jr. Member (Newbies are not allowed to post images).

2. Upload a photo on imgur (doesn't need to be made public; hidden works as well).

3. After the picture is uploaded, a "Copy link" will be displayed (see picture below). However, this link is not functional on Bitcointalk, nor the URL from the address bar. Note the form of the link, in order to make the difference: "https://imgur.com/somecharacters"


4. Eventually, after uploading the picture, when setting the picture as hidden (by pressing the button "Hidden"), a new window will appear, with the picture's link. This link has the same form described at step 2, thus can't be used here.


5. Go to the account's posts and selected the picture which should be posted on Bitcointalk. When the picture is displayed on the screen, right click on it and select "Copy image location". Paste on a new tab. At this moment, the given link will be different, appearing as "https://i.imgur.com/somecharacters". Practically, the "normal" link looks like https://imgur.com and the one needed here has the form of https://i.imgur.com.




6. After obtaining the "i.imgur" link, type it here in the following form: [ img ] i.imgur link [/img] (without any space between the characters).

Voila! The picture should be appearing in full format.
I hope this helps Smiley

Mind it that using imgur you can not upload image using tor browser and in that case one can use www.postimg.cc

And this is how you do:





I hope it helps.

You can simply click the three horizontal dots on top right of the image, next to "copy link", then click "get share link" then copy the "BBCode (forums)" link. You can paste it into your post without adding the img tag.

After obtaining the "i.imgur" link, type it here in the following form: [ img ] i.imgur link [/img] (without any space between the characters).
another tip: you can insert codes inside code tags. This way, you don't have to add spaces to make the code appear properly:
Code:
[img]i.imgur link [/img]

I rarely post images on bitcointalk so I use the same way as you mentioned,but if someone want to post pictures much often then this Guideline on posting images (with size adjustments), hyperlinks thread will help them.

Thank you for the tip, khaled0111. Indeed, it is possible also with the BB Code. But, as you saw already, there are already several forms of links and the newbies might get confused by all of them. That was why I suggested to get the i.imgur link via "Copy image location".

Regarding the thread mentioned by Findingnemo, I saw it as well, but it doesn't explain the trick regarding imgur vs i.imgur. That's why I tried to offer the solution for posting from imgur Smiley

On my Windows PC, i use an Open source tool that simplifies everything. It's called sharex. All i have to do is take a screenshot, edit it if necessary and then click on the OK button.
The image gets posted to imgur and any other image hosting website of your choice depending on your preference settings. The image link is automatically copied to the clipboard which you can just past in the forum  Wink

I often use imgur.com to make images as links so they could be displayed on the bitcointalk.org forum.
The steps are almost the same / maybe the same as what you do.
1. Minimum Junior Member.
2. Prepare the image to be uploaded.
3. Open the site imgur.com and click on the upload photo section.
4. After the image has been uploaded successfully, the next step is to find the bbforum link available at the top right of the image.
5. Paste the image link in the bitcointalk.org forum post that you want.

Suggestions, use this code to make the image display in the forum better to look at.
Code:
[img width=400]insert your image url[/img]

No, it depends on your desire and your picture but you must maintain the image quality at least to be clear. Resizing an image will usually make the image become corrupt or unclear.

You can literally right click the image and select “Copy URL of the image”. You don’t need to “inspect elements” and grab the link from the source code. lol

Make sure to use the smaller resolution with the original aspect ratio.

Or just set the width and don't indicate the height, this way, it'll automatically adjust the correct image aspect ratio based from the width.
But do not do it vice versa (do not set the height and no width), it'll look horrible on mobile with low-resolution
(it will stretch to fill the indicated height while using the device's small width).

For example: Your image in the OP became stretched horizontally because the height didn't matched the ratio of the original width & height.
use this instead: [img width=640]yourimagelink.jpg[/img]

Thank you for the tip! I'm sure everyone will benefit from all these advices.
I updated the pictures from the OP as you suggested Smiley

4. After the image has been uploaded successfully, the next step is to find the bbforum link available at the top right of the image.
For those who can't find the link, Press the three dots after the Copy button, go to Shareable links, then copy the BBCode(forum) link:



No need for the additional typing, though the comment of adjusting Image Height and Width may be needed at times depending on the image itself.
