So you want to post a screenshot to the forum? No problem.

There are many image uploading sites but we ask you use http://www.tinypic.com so that this tutorial becomes universal. It also means the links are small, which keeps the forums neater.

1) Visit http://www.tinypic.com.

2) Click on browse and select your image from the desired folder.

3) Leave file type on image and then in the resize drop down menu, pick Message Board (640x480).

4) Click upload now and wait for the image to upload and redirect your page (if you are prompted to enter a code, do so. Itʻs only to prevent spam, donʻt worry :) ).

5) When the page loads up, you will see several copy and paste codes. Pick the one called Direct link for layouts.

6) Copy and paste that code into your forum post, and surround it in image tags.

7) When you have done that make sure to add spoilers around your screenshot image tags, to hide the image from those who donʻt want to look. This also makes sure those with slower internet speeds donʻt have to load up unnecessary large images.

Spoiler


Youʻre done! Please follow this tutorial, as it means the image sizes are smaller and also stops them from breaking the forum layout in posts.

EDIT:
Thanks to Squirrel for provoking this forum category, and for paving the way of this tutorial, by pretty much doing everything it says, in his screenshot thread!
