October 16 - Everyone ready for the Friday Highlight? It's ready for you here.

How do you post pictures in the forum?

How do you post pictures?

I wanted to share screenshots of my gameplay but when I tried posting an [IMG] file, it said I have to be *around longer* to post links. How long do you have to be around in order to be able to share screenshots and images? I'm confused. Thanks for your help

    This is not a distressful forum about how to post them, it's how to do it. I've seen people questioning how to do it, so I shall solve this issue for those in despair.

    First things first, you must be member. 50(maybe 30) posts, and 50 points will get you there. Your account also must be a day old.

    Now, to the image part!

    1. Find your wanted image(Example picture, Christoph Schneider petting a puppy:http://wifflegif.com/gifs/394045-christoph-schneider-adorable-schneider-gif)
    2. Shift click on the image and click [Open image in new tab]
    3. Copy the URL from the image that is opened in the new tab
    4. Click the folded piece of paper icon in the comment section (At the top, if you roll over it it should say Attach image/file

    You have posted an image. Yay for you!


    Here's how to get a signature, too. Because I feel like being further helpful.
    Note: Make sure you are a member, and that your account has been active for 8 weeks(about 2 months)

    1. Again, find your wanted image
    2. Open image in new tab
    3. Copy URL
    4. Go to your wall
    5. Click the tiny head icon
    6. Select edit profile
    7. Click signature settings
    8. Click the folded piece of paper icon
    9. Paste the URL

    You now have a signature. Again, yay for you.

    Hopefully this helped the people in distress.

    twin baby girls pic if that ^^ works... this is a test!

    Edit: All I removed was " h t t p : / / " which makes it unclickable of course, but I did test by copying/pasting the above into a new tab and it worked fine. I see twins!

    Thanks so much for posting this, I was having the toughest time trying to upload. Took me like a day to find this post! :D

    Thank you for the time you put in to post this! I have enough posts from the previous sims 3 forums, but not enough points. I am new to this website. I haven't played sims 3 in awhile, and now that I am back, it seems all the forums have changed. So annoying.
