Here is a photo guide with a video demonstrating the process of embedding images from imgur to Formiculture. Please note, this doesn't work with Photobucket anymore so imgur is probably the way to go.

STEP ONE: Figure out where you want to post the photo.

You don't necessarily have to edit a previous thread to post a photo, I just had a picture I forgot to publish with my addition to the Photography Thread. It works the same way with brand-new threads, too.


STEP TWO: Click 'edit' to add photos to an existing post.

Like I said, you can skip this step if you're publishing a new thread.


STEP THREE: Decide where you want the photo to go.

Self-explanatory, I don't expect most of you to get stuck on this part.


STEP FOUR: Upload the photo to imgur.

There are a few ways to do this. You can pick the photo right out from your drive using the 'browse' function, or simply drag & drop it, which is what I usually do.




STEP FIVE: Copy the photo.

Once the photo as shown up in your feed, you can select it.


Once selected, six different links will be available for you to choose in order to share it. In this case, we want to choose the link titled 'Direct Link'.


There are several ways to copy a photo; you can click the 'copy' button beside the link (which doesn't usually work for me), you can right click the selected link and choose 'copy' from the dropdown menu, or you can press command+C (shortest and easiest in my opinion).



STEP SIX: Embed the photo into your post.

To embed the image, you need to click the little square button in-between the break hyperlink and arrow buttons. It looks like a little picture; it's hard to miss.


Once you've clicked the square button, paste your link into the pop-up window. Once again, there are several ways to paste text; I'd recommend right-clicking the photo and using the dropdown menu, or using command+V.


Once you've pasted it, you can click 'OK' and the photo should pop up right where you wanted it.


Remember to save your changes if you're editing a post (click 'publish' if you're making a new one):


I do hope this helps eliminate confusion regarding posting embedded photos on this forum.

VIDEO: How to embed photos on Formiculture.com:

It's funny because I cannot see any of the photos when posted this way. Only can see when embedded directly to formiculture via the gallery.

That seems like a hassle anyway, uploading to the gallery is easy enough.
