How To Post An Image on GTAForums

Question

~Tiger~

HOW DO I POST AN IMAGE on GTA Forums?


The image that you wish to post must be online, either on a website or on an image hosting site such as http://imgur.com/
The simple way to post an image is to type the image tags thus:


[img=image url]

There must be no spaces and of course 'image url' is a link to the image in your online host account or on a website, not on your PC or mobile.



If you wish to upload several images, this is best done from a PC rather than a mobile device.
First upload the desired image(s) to an image hosting site:

http://www.tinypic.com
http://www.imgur.com

After it is uploaded copy paste the URL (note: it has to end with an imagine extension e.g .png, .jpg, .gif)

Hit the little tree symbol as shown above.

Click "Ok" and you can go ahead and post the image.

Hi there,

 

I've tried following the instructions above but nothing happens.

 

The whole screen just freezes and I have to close the browser window and sign in again.

 

Do I have to request permission to post pictures?

 

Any help would be appreciated.

No you don't need permission. Please try to post a picture right now in this thread and we might be able to shed some light on your problem.

It's less that it's a problem needing fixing on GTAF's end and more a problem on IE's end - it just really isn't a good browser, and that's one of the reasons why.

Internet Explorer, or at least older versions of it, aren't compliant with the standards the internet is based on.

When I trie to post an image it says:

 

"You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community.

 

 

 

I used imgur.

 

 

Is jpeg not an allowed extension?? or what else is the problem?

From what I can tell your two options are either uploading them to twitter/facebook and use the images from there, or transfer them to a USB drive or phone and uploading them to imgur via your computer/phone.

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."

Have I done something wrong? Please assist.

make sure you right click>copy image address on the image so that you're using the url ending with .jpg or .png

Wow, could this be more over complicated? How does this problem exist on any site in 2016?!

The simple way of doing it is to just copy and paste the image into the reply box, however this is the more foolproof method if issues somehow arise.

I tried that first, nothing happens when i hold my finger in the reply box (mobile). I opened a "dropbox" account, but the link just brought people to my gallery

Why would you try to link people to an image on Dropbox? You can easily upload it to Imgur, copy the link and paste it into the post. So much easier.

I guess its because i dont know what dropbox is, it was an option on the XBOXDvr site that i was originally trying to post images from. After i found and read this tutorial, I thought "oh, just need a URL, I'll use that xbox site" but there was no URL to highlight, I could View, copy, or save the images but couldn't view the URL. So i tried dropbox. Now I'll try Imgur, but any other site I've ever been to has been as easy as "cut/paste/done" directly from my image gallery

You mean your signature?

 

You copied and pasted the URL of an imgur page, not the URL of the image - the link should end with an imagine extension (e.g .png, .jpg, .gif).

 

Right-click and open image in a new tab and you should get this link: http://i.imgur.com/3iRQULt.png. Then follow the instructions in the OP.

I know this post was made 6 months ago but you can indeed post pictures from Snapmatic just instead of getting the URL from the address bar you need to get the image link/url by right clicking on the picture and selecting Copy Image Link/Copy Image URL or simply right click and select copy image and then come here and right click "Paste"

 

Works same way as in the OP and RedDagger been posting about

 

Also for those of you posting pictures from Imgur you can just copy and paste the BBCode that imgur offers once your picture is uploaded..
