View Full Version : How to Post Photos on PoolForum (2018)

06-02-2018, 06:31 PM

Photo services come and go, and most of the ones we used in 2014 and earlier are gone! Currently, Imgur (https://imgur.com/) is very quick and easy. Imgur's current policy is that all pics uploaded will be retained forever, even if you have only a free account.

The only downside I see is that the site does allow porn, something I hadn't noticed, since I'd only ever used it to post pics. Wiki article. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imgur) Review #1 (https://www.commonsensemedia.org/website-reviews/imgur) Review #2 (https://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/imgur.com)

The site has a setting to "allow mature content", but it seems to be 'off' by default. The home page is a viral / meme page that didn't show any visual porn, but did have some captions with the 'f-word'. When I checked "allow mature content", all I saw in the 1st 100 photos I scanned were some bare butts and bikini boobs. Of course your mileage may vary -- just leave it unchecked.

Here's how:

1. Register at Imgur. It's very quick, easy. Do NOT use a password you use on important sites for Imgur (or here for that matter) !
2. Click "New Post" at the top of the page.
3. Drag and drop, or upload photos.
4. Grab photo page URL from right column, like this one: https://imgur.com/a/lwp72xj
5. Post URL here.

Now, as you can see, the images are accessible by clicking the link, but not visible here. To make them visible in the PoolForum post takes four more steps for each image. This sounds more complicated than it is.

1. From the Imgur page, click each photo, enlarging it.
2. RIGHT-CLICK the larger image, then click "Copy Image Location"
3. Return to your PoolForum post, and click the image icon => http://www.poolforum.com/pf2/images/editor/insertimage.png
4. Paste the Imgur image URL in the pop-up forum box, creating this:



Hope this is clear!

PS. If you can't find the image button, cut and paste this text:
and THEN paste the image url in between!
