I uploaded my images to Imgur and tried to update my post by adding the url'sfor the images but this is the dialog box that comes up "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community."    

In during to upload an image you don't upload a file and file name protected by wikia (with file extension .png, jpg and .svg) which this file extension (.svg) and image protected by Wikia cannot be uploaded.

How can I save the posted images? No matter if I left-, middle-, right- or Ctrl+Shift-click them they just open up in theatre mode and there is no option to save them or open in the new window. Looking through the page source is very inconvenient trying to locate the right image. Thanks.

I'm assuming you're on Firefox. When you open the picture, above the Close button there is a button that says Save. When you press this button, it redirects you to the picture's direct link, you can save it from there.

Awesome, thanks. I was looking in the Screenshots thread, and all of the screenshots were larger than my screen, so I didn't see the save/close button. Thanks for that.

so overly complicated to upload a stupid f*cking picture, i dont understand why you cant just copy and paste via your phone or desktop like every other site...-_____-

 

literally  just wasted over an hour on gay ass imgur trying to upload a f*cking picture that's sprawled all over the internet and all i wanted to do was circle out an area so ppl would focus on what i was talking about but that site is being hella homo and wont even register my picture that ive saved in my folder over 20 f*cking times...... and the only difference between my photo and that one i wasted time on was literally 1 line, im using firefox and that stupid ass site wont even let me type in the browse section without kicking me out telling me it cant find my photo

 

sorry for the B&M but literally.. there has to be an easier way to get a photo on here without having to bounce inbetween sites, thats fckn ridiculous.. -_-

1. This isn't the topic for that. It's only for submissions
2. You're doing this wrong. To embed the image, url needs​ to end with an extension (i.e. .jpg, .png, .bmp, etc.)

Don't link me to previous answers to this. I've tried them all, and it keeps telling me I'm not allowed to use that image extension? What is that about and why can't I post anything here. What am I doing wrong. How do I post pictures correctly on these forums as I have not been able to do as of recently.

I'm trying to post an image from the gta wiki, the picture of Don Percival specifically and no matter what method I try it's not working.

As much as I'd like to, I can't because the whole point is I can't post the image, or any other image for that matter. It keeps telling me "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community" I don't know why and I don't how I'm ever going to be able to post another image here again.

I can't


Its because you are hotlinking the image.

You need to host it on imgur first:

WOW! You did it! So, do all images have to be added from imgur from now on, because I do remember when all I had to do was simply copy and paste?

I'm trying to post an image from the gta wiki, the picture of Don Percival specifically and no matter what method I try it's not working.

That's because GTA wiki formats its image URLs differently, to embed an image it has to end in a file format like .jpg or .png in the URL - if you look at the URL of the image:
https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/gtawiki/images/7/77/Donpercival.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20150122083812
you'll notice in the middle it says "Donpercival.jpg", but then appends a load of extra stuff, making it not end in .jpg - thankfully, you can remove all the stuff after the .jpg and it can be embedded:
https://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/gtawiki/images/7/77/Donpercival.jpg
That link can then be embedded as an image.

However, as Tiger pointed out, general hotlinking can be frowned upon since the site has to host the image without people actually visiting the site - so it's often easier to upload it to an image host instead.

Okay, thanks for all of you and Tiger's help.
