How To: Add an image to a post using Imgur

Post by Russell Phillips »

Upload the image. You can drag & drop the image, or click browse your computer and choose the image from the dialogue box. It will upload automatically.

When it has finished uploading (wait until the Processing message disappears), move your mouse over the image. A bar will appear. Click the arrow next to the Copy button. Click Get share links.

Click the bottom-left Copy button, under BBCode (Forums)
