How to insert image in a post thread?

Solution
Notice you're having trouble with uploading images on the site. Sorry for the extra work. Here is a little tutorial to help:

1. Go to https://imgur.com/

2. Upload your image by clicking on the New post (green button on the top left hand corner, next to logo).

3. Click Choose Photo/Video then Select your file.

4. Once the image is uploaded, hover the mouse over to the image and you should see a button with 3-dots in it.

5. Click on that and select "Get Share Link" > Under BBCode (Forums) click Copy link

Problem is it's not a URL. It's just a screen shot. A jpeg file

Posting an image on this forum is as clear to me as mud. I'm lost. Imgur is greek to me. The image is just a screen shot that has no https;// It's just a jpg file. A simple screen shot in windows...
My discussion will not make any sense without these screen shots.
Lost man....lost

Is "Imgur" another account I have to open just in order to post a pic in usethinkscript????

Hi,

For some reasons, I don't see UnderBBCode option.
May i know How to attach pictures

If the top post instructions:
https://usethinkscript.com/threads/how-to-insert-image-in-a-post-thread.277/
are not working for you. Try going to the imgur gallery and selecting your image there:

No.
You aren't being clear where you are encountering a problem.
Have you tried step 1?

Step 1 takes me to https://imgur.com/
Then I click on the New Post button which takes me to the screen that says "drop images here"
Then I click on choose photo/video
Then it captures my photo on a screen with a bunch of options, "To Community, Grab Link, your post is currently hidden, add tags, IMG TOOLS, add more images, embed post, download post, delete post"
And at the top right of the screen it says, "Go Add Free, Sign In, Sign Up"
Here is where I kind of get lost. I don't know what to choose. Some of the options will not let me choose them. I tried "Grab Link" but that didn't work. It gives me the option of "Copy LInk" so I copy it and go here and click above on insert image and paste it there then hit the insert box and I get "image cannot be inserted from the passed link".
Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong...
Any ideas?

Soooooooo close.
You followed all the instructions until step 6.

Once you "copy link" just paste it into your post.

Whatever you do DON"T click on insert image and paste it there then hit the insert box and get "image cannot be inserted from the passed link".

OK, I'm really close. When I get to "Copy Link" under BBC Code I hit the copy link and then paste it into the post where I normally would write my text and the only thing it does is pasts the link in the post and not the picture. The Instructions say to "paste that link into our Post editor" Maybe that is what I am not doing. Is one of the tools above the post editor?

Technically, what you did will work. but members will have to click on the link to see your image.
Now go back and re-read the instructions in step#4:

because you aren't clicking on the correct "copy link"

I clicked on the above "copy link", BBCode (Forums) and pasted it into the post and it pasted the text that was highlighted in the BBCode, and that's all it pasted. Is BBCode (forums) the wrong one to click on? I really do appreciate your patients with me. But I think I am doing what the instructions are requesting. I'm just pasting text and not a picture. You have the patients of a saint. Maybe I don't understand what "Paste link into our post editor" means.

Yes, where on line is best to saver the video to be able to create a link to share? Imgure.com is good only for Images.
The Forum creates and saves its video on YouTube. But you can link from wherever is your favorite.
And then copy the link into your post.
