HOW TO - Upload images to imgur

This post if for photos on your computer that are being a pain and won't upload properly to RO. Imgur is a neat way to get yourself a link for your image so that you can upload to RO through the link. 

 

Here is a link to Imgur, it's an image hosting server. Then in the top right corner, click New Post and then upload an image.

From there, you can drag the image from your computer on the area where the giraffe is.

Then, you can copy the link and upload it onto your post.

To upload on RO check out This thread here and scroll down to "From the internet" section.

Robot HappyHope this helped.

Re: Uploading Images

adding through photos aint working either....

 

@Ben-RO @N1ghtW1ng pls halp! Gotta add a gif to the next GR session intro!

Re: Uploading Images

Insert gif as photo @StarLord, OR are you getting it online? Just right click and say "copy image" then paste directly in. Easy peasy Smiley Wink
(also, can you please float the topic? The yellow options drop-down menu, then "float for all users")

Re: Uploading Images

@N1ghtW1ng thanks for the suggestions. I've saved the gif (found on giphy.com) then try to upload it but because it won't allow me to save it as an image format I can't upload it.
Copying and pasting isn't working either Smiley Sad
I'll try anything else you suggest if you have any more ideas but thanks already
