How to use imgur from your telephone to post pics

Post by smellody » April 2nd 2023, 8:23am

I've read multiple times, "I need to figure out how to put pictures." Hope these instructions help. These instructions work for smart Galaxy phones.

Step #1: download imgur. It is free. It works. Did I mention it is free?

Image

Once your account is set up start snapping pictures.

Step #2: upload your picture from your phones gallery to imgur.

Find the picture you want to share. Here I've selected a picture of a perfectly good Goblin who finally fell asleep after playing ball for 12 hours. As seen below, share to your imgur account.

Image

Step #2 Continued:

Image

Once the imgur interface opens select upload.

Close imgur and your gallery and open Watchlords.com to start your post.

Step #3:

When ready to insert your picture, select in the icon above in the below picture with the little portrait.

Image

By clicking on the picture icon you automatically get the code necessary to post your link. We will get back to that.

Image

Open up the imgur app and go to your now uploaded pictures.

Shown are my recent uploaded pictures in the imgur app.
Image

Select the photo you want to share in your post and select "IMGUR Copy URL" and copy it.

Image

Step #4:

Now that you have the URL "https://i.imgur.com/v3aQdel.jpeg" for example. Go back to the post and paste it right in the middle of [ img ][ /img ] in your post.

Image

It will then look like:Image
before you submit.

Finish your post. Hit submit. Bob's your uncle and perhaps your aunt.

Here is that picture of a perfectly good Goblin Frenchton.

Image

Hope that helped.... similar for images-hack and others. Many other apps charge $$$. I use imgur because it is free and works. I need to start adding tags to my pictures in imgur to find them more easily.

Watchlords.com isn't affiliated with imgur, but again, it is free....

I’ve had Imgur for years. It stopped working right around the time I posted my last pic. It didn’t install itself as a “share” option and uploading directly through Imgur hangs with a perpetual “next” which greys out.

But I learned something retrying today: I’m still subscribed to their premium service - gonna do something about that RFN.

servimg is also a pain in the ass to use. And do remember nothing comes for free. Anyways using an app sounds more convenient than the browser. Thanks, smellidoty!
