Post [Basic Guide] Uploading and Posting Screenshots
This is going to be a short little guide, P2H created a detailed guide regarding screenshots 3 years ago but I'm going to make something that'll make everything so much easier.

Uploading and Posting Screenshots

Step 1: - Use Imgur.

Step 2: - Hit 'upload images' at the top left.

Image

You're presented with four options, pick one.

Step 3: Get link and wrap it in IMG code. Example - Image

Step 4: Hit 'Submit'. Job well done.


Alternate way to Uploading and Posting Screenshots

Step 1: Get ShareX and install.

Image

Step 2: Go to Capture > anything you want. For a SAMP screenshot, have it open then go to Capture > Window > sa-mp-xxx.png - Name of Program used to view screenshot. It shall capture it and automatically upload it to the right as shown.

Either double click on it to get the URL or right click on file > copy > URL.

Imgur is default I think. 'Destinations' allows you to select different uploaders for screenshots / text.

Step 3: Repeat Steps 3 and 4 from above. Done.

I use imgur most of the time. Very complex and simple site, but ShareX is also seems pretty nice. May test it out someday since I never heard of it. I feel bad now :roll:


Nonetheless, I hope people actually start using the [image] forum implementation. What bugs me the most is not people struggling with uploading images, but not knowing how to show the damn image resulting in them adding like 10-20 links. Ugh....them link bugs. Either way, good job with this guide.

Nice guide. This should help people in making complaints.

On a side note, mentioning some other services for uploading photos wouldn't hurt since not everyone uses/wants to use imgur.

Well they should then. Sure, people have their preference but most of them are just inconvenient.

TinyPic is rubbish, it's very slow and full of ads, use imgur!
