How do I post a picture?

Hello, Simtropolans,


I'm wondering if anyone can help me here.  Could someone give me detailed instructions (step one, step two...) for posting pictures of my cities as something other than "thumbnails" within the text of my posts?


Your help would be much appreciated!

  1. You need an account on a photo storage site.  I have one on imgur.  They offer a limited free account.  I have a paid account.
  2. Upload your picture to the photo storage site.
  3. Select the correct URL (depends on the site) to post onto your clipboard.
  4. Open the image tool on the second button bar above, paste the URL in the dialogue box and click OK.

In item 3 above, most of the image sites will offer several different URLs depending on the kind of board you are posting.  You might have to experiment a little to get the right one.

An alternative to Imgur would be Photobucket, which is what I use. Follow the steps A Nonny Moose put down, but when you're ready to link it to Simtropolis, select the link that has %7Boption%7D codes around it (fourth and final one on the provided list.)
