 Post Embedded Screenshots At Forums [Guide]
I have had questions about "How to post screenshots", therefore I decided to create this.

There's couple of different online free Image/media hosting services and I'm bringing just one up, because overall the hosting services have the same basics.

Different Image hosting companies below: (Type the names at Google and you'll find.)

* ImageShack
* Photobucket
* Tinypic (Here's the URL already [IMG]embedded just copy and paste, no sign up needed)
* Imgur
* Postimage
* Pixhost

Let's begin!

In order to have screenshots available you have to press F8 in-game or get an external print screen program and remember to empty your "screens" folder (Documents > GTA San Andreas User Files > SAMP > Screens) and move the pictures to another location every once in a while if you're using F8 since 1 000 screens is max.

Follow the steps:

Postimage

1) Remember to re-size your picture. (Preferably max 800x600, See Click me!).

2)
- First you have to search for a picture to upload by pressing the "Choose images" button.

Image

3)
- Click on 'Direct link',copy that and go to the forums and put tags around it.

4)
- If you want a tiny picture, clickable, post it with the code.

Image

Last and final step:
- Go to the forums
- Choose a section
- Make new topic by clicking on "NEW TOPIC*"
- Type your subject and make your post
- Paste the URL you've copied and use the "Img" button to embed that picture of yours
- Remember to highlight your URL and click on the "Img" button
- Or you start to click the "Img" button and paste the URL between [img]*Here*[/img]
- Some companies have [IMG] embedded your URL already and you just copy and paste it
Image

Now you have to only click on "Submit" and you have posted it :)


Remember to read the forums rules before posting and rules for each section.


Here's with Tinypic.com, another example:

Step 1: Choose your picture
Step 2: Pick file type, it automatically starts with image type.
Step 3: Resize your picture, this is important, choose "Message Board 640&480"
Step 4: Choose "Upload Now" and type in the CAPTCHA in order to upload your picture.
Step 5: Now your pic is uploaded and you can decide if you want to use it as an avatar, then pick the last URL option or if you want to post some image, then pick the highlighted one in the screenshots below.
Step: Just copy/paste the URL or IMG embedded one on the forums and it's done!

Thank you very much - merci beaucoup for the positive response :)

Yes, I thought it would be useful too, since I have got questions about this as well, so I decided to make this guide.
