You need to copy the image address so it ends with .png or .jpg or the like, as so:

Posting GIF's are the same to Posting Images.

How do I post a screen shot. I'm on ps4. I've read that I could go through twitter but I don't have a twitter. Is there anyway to do it without using Twitter. I have a few shots saved on the ps4 I'd like to share.

If I go through twitter how easy will that be. I'd rather avoid making a twitter if I can help it.

..... ok re reading here. I should be able to put the picture on a USB and transfer it to imgur via computer.. a bit inconvenient.. if anyone knows the easiest most simple way of doing this that'd be great if they could share. I might understand after reading again, I'll see if I can figure it out later on.

You should be able to. Right Click, choose 'Copy Link Location', then Post here as normal.

I'm on mac, I can't seem to find a copy image location, only copy image which doesn't seem to work.
It copies on to the preview box, but when I save it on here it doesn't seem to show up. Thanks.

You need to right click on the image and select 'copy image address' then host the image in a imgur or photobucket account. Then you can use image tags to post here.

 

It looks like you are trying to hotlink to your image.

 

The tablet is not the problem here. Host the image rather than attempting a hotlink extension.

That's probably because they've hotlink protection enabled on that directory which doesn't allow you to post their images externally.

Aye, if you want to upload from steam you'll have to upload to imgur first, just put the steam URL in when uploading and you should be good to go.

they've hotlink protection enabled

 

It is worth remembering that hotlinking is very generally considered to be wrong, even from non-protected sites.

 

Some even go so far as to assert that hotinking is bandwidth theft.

 

Therefore, as RedDagger advises, it is always best to host images and media files on imgur/photobucket etc prior to posting on the forum.  :^:
