Hello there

 

just a quick question, posting of images/screenshots on the forum....... is there coding to shrink the image?

As far as I am aware, there isn't, no.

It probably isn't necessary as the forums will automatically resize large images in posts, so you don't need to worry about stretching the page or anything like that with very large images.

Otherwise, your best bet is to resize the images yourself to the size that you want them to be before uploading and posting.

For what its worth,

 

It still makes more sense to me to just take the direct link to the image and stick it in between the img brackets. Like so...

[img]place_your_pic_address_here[/img]

That's how we did it in the old days, and we didn't complain! We thought it was great!

On imgur links, you can add a non-capital "L" to the end of the URL to make it into a much smaller image. Example: http://i.imgur.com/OqN9xrA.png becomes http://i.imgur.com/OqN9xrAl.png
(Notice the "l" after the A)
 
It doesn't work on this example because the image is small enough, so it doesn't need to be resized, but it's an effective solution. GTAForums also resizes pictures automatically so they fit more properly in the forum style, and responsively with your screen resolution, but it can prove annoying for tall images.

You need to link the direct image:
https://i.imgur.com/AT4sKyM.jpg
notice the .jpg at the end - when viewing the image, right click and copy image address.

Aye, dunno what it's like on all devices but if you hold press, you can copy the image or view the image and copy the url up to the .jpg.

Remember, if you're not pasting the image directly, you'll need to use BBCode if you're using the URL - i.e.
[img=URL]
so in this instance
[img=https://i.imgur.com/AT4sKyM.jpg]

Make sure to use the [img] BBCode if you are wanting to embed the image in a post. In this instance:

 

4vBvJtv_d.jpg?

[img=https://i.imgur.com/4vBvJtv_d.jpg?]

Or so it doesn't embed as a tiny thumbnail like above:

[img=https://i.imgur.com/4vBvJtv.jpg]

If it's a youtube video, post the non-mobile link and it'll automatically embed.

Non-youtube videos can't be embedded at the moment.
