Is there a way to upload a picture from my desktop and post it to SoSH?
There's a detailed list of instructions somewhere on here (I had it linked for a long time).
Upload to shutterfly or Flickr or the like
Copy the URL that that site gives you for that picture
Start a post here on SOSH in the appropriate thread
Click on "insert picture"
Paste the URL
http://tinypic.com/ is good for one-off uploads without needing an account or anything. You have to do a captcha once every 5-10 pics or so.
There's a feature on the app that lets you pull from your pics, but I've never been able to get it to work. Am I doing something wrong with that (I've disabled privacy settings before trying), or is it just a work in progress?
If you are talking about the iPhone app. I believe it works on the tapatalk app but not the SOSH app
Thanks all, looks like tinypic is what I was looking for since you don't need a login
I have pictures on my computer and Google Photos and I'm trying to post them here. I tried to upload the files and kept getting an error message that it couldn't be uploaded. I tried using the link from Google Photos but all I see is a red X with IMG after it. Can anyone tell me how to post these pictures?
I figured out how to upload the files- the files were too big. But I'm still curious about using the links from Photos. Do Google links not work here or something? I've been able to do it in the past with Dropbox.
Use TinyPics, it's pretty easy
Or imgur.com is good, too
Thanks I'll try them. But for future reference does anyone know if the Google photos links simply don't work here or something?
Works for me, which is pretty unsettling as I haven't set this photo to be publicly visible. Just post the URL for the Google image into the "Insert Image" URL here on SOSH.
Nope. Still isn't working. I don't get it.
Trying with dropbox for this one- still isn't working.
Oh, you're using the shitty "Share this Link" link. Ignore that. Those are mostly just a way for the embedding site to do additional tracking, and in the case of Google Photos it doesn't actually link to the image (it makes a web page with a 1-photo album that contains the image).
Just copy the image link like you would for any other website (open the image up, right click, "copy image URL" or "copy image address" or "copy image link" or whatever your browser calls it) and use that.
Hey it worked. Thanks, Sumner.
