Testing Postimages

#1 Post by Steve R » Fri Dec 14, 2018 2:19 pm

This thread exists to test instructions, uploading images at postimages (without joining the site) and linking to that photo in KFDU.
Can someone give feedback on instructions and results please (note light conditions were poor so the belly area washed out due to the flash) .

1) Navigate to https://postimages.org/
1 b) I chose to leave image at original size but you can use options to reduce if you wish
1 c) I left the expiry at 'No expiration' but you can set a time limit (expiry is not a KFDU-friendly option)
2) Without joining or logging on, cick [Choose Images] (must test multiple images)
3) Navigate to the directory that contains your photo, select the image you want then click [OK]
4) The postimages screen will progress and present you with a number of choices
5) Copy the link in the box titled 'Hotlink for forum'.
6) Paste that link into your post.
7) The link will need pruning in you message as underneath

a) Originally it will look like the green writing in the box below

Code: Select all

[url=https://postimages.org/][img]https://i.postimg.cc/V6tc8f3n/Fishing-2014-Dec-Luderick.jpg[/img][/url]
b) You need to remove all except the img wrapper and its content so it looks like the green writing below

Code: Select all

[img]https://i.postimg.cc/V6tc8f3n/Fishing-2014-Dec-Luderick.jpg[/img]
The end result:
(original 228kb after linking the KFDU image remains 228kb)
