    Why is it impossible to post photos?

    thumbnail_IMG_3396.jpg: Exceeds your quota by 51.5 KB. <a href="misc.php?do=attachments" target="_blank">Click here to view your attachments</a>

    WHat does that even mean?

    Every once in a while I decide to post a pic. Then I quickly remember why I never post any pix.

    I don't use photo bucket.

    Seriously, I don't understand why it's so difficult.

    Its been a thing on here a long time. I put all my shared photos are in HBC photos, I edit everything to 500kb and still get a error message. Even down to 200kb stll won't let you, the only way I can post them is by using a desktop computer with Foxfire I have to open two tabs with HBC up, copy from one paste to the other.

    Upload your photos to an Imgur account, you can upload using their mobile app or via desktop

    go to Imgur and copy the BB code for the pic, theres a blue button that says copy



    paste it into HBC reply box

    It will look something like that ^

    but display like this when you post it

    HBC also has a photo hosting gallery






    Upload a pic, then click on the pic in your personal gallery and right click on the mouse and select COPY IMAGE LINK




    Then go to your post on HBC you're making and type [img] ,then paste the link , and finish it with [/img] No spaces between the [img]xxxxxx[/img]

    It will display like this :

    Iíve been using this website (https://postimages.org/) to post images on here. Works great, no need for an app, and is easy to use.
    Think, don't just have thoughts.

    Thanks guys! I'll check some of these out.

    I see MRP found what I was trying to post. I got 1 pix into the gallery and then it won't let me upload anything else.

    I wanted to ask what everyone thought these tracks were. BUt, just too much effort.

    I use https://imgur.com/ to post the pics. Once they are posted there, I right-click on the image and click "Copy Image Location". Then on here, I click on the little "Picture icon" while I am making a post, then I click "From URL" and uncheck "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" and paste in the URL and click "OK".

    That's the best way I can summarize it. I think there are some sticky posts about posting pictures. I also think someone even made a video tutorial at some point. Maybe I'll do a write-up or video tutorial one of these days with the steps.

    Once you know the process it's smooth sailing.

    Some don't like Imgur due to the community and the sharing and public viewing
    Easy to go into settings and change all the privacy settings so its completely private
    Glad to say I have hunted Northern BC

    Simon Fraser had pretty good judgement on what he found in BC
