I have 5 handguns I'd like to sell. How do you post pics here? It's been quite a while since I did.

Is there any hosting site that puts up actual pictures rather than the link ? when I used photobucket it did but but once they started charging,I quit using them.There must be as some post have pictures and others links unless they are hosted by photobucket.

Unless I'm missing something even if I use Imgur,it still shows the link instead of picture,I also see other posts the same way.

You use a PC, iPad or phone?

I post from my computer. I click on my library, click on the pic I want to post, there's a menu to the right of the pic and I copy and paste the appropriate link which then shows up as the pics you see I posted above.

If you use something other than a computer .... I cant help you cause I don't know what hoops to jump through; sorry.

I click on Huge Thumbnail.

BTW - I'm posting (text only) now from an iPad but haven't taken time to see if I can post pics from here. I'd need to download their iPad app first I'm sure.

Huge thumbnail and BB Code. The link will show till you preview. Once posted what you see in preview is what will show on the forum.

I went to Imgurinc.com. Right off it wants me to get the app. No overview of the app. No place that says they won’t use your picture without permission. I basically use my iPhone. I am leery.

So I goto the Apple App Store. Type in Imgur and all that pops up is an app for putting meme’s on the internet and or an Imgur Browser-really?
Forget it?

Just now I downloaded the Imgur ap to my iPad.

It looks a little different than on my PC but otherwise, I see all my pics.

Haven't figured out yet how to post them using the iPad but also don't have a huge need to do it at this time.
