    If you're looking to get images in a post, let me help you out. The format for pictures on imgur is pretty standard. It's i dot imgur dot com slash <image identifier>. If you set up a free account with them, you can click on the picture and copy the BBcode. Otherwise, you can go to the image, right click and either "open image in new tab" or "open link in new tab". The address in the new tab should look like this:
    https://i.imgur.com/912HeLQ.jpg

    The second image would have an address of:
    https://i.imgur.com/6CIXmpB.jpg

    The important thing to note is the address ends in .jpg (or some other image format). If you only copy that link in a post, the site will interpret that as a link. To tell the site to show the image, wrap the link in an image tab by putting [*img] before the link and [/*img] after the link. (Note: remove the asterisks. They are in there to keep the site from seeing them as tags.) The result, [*img]https://i.imgur.com/912HeLQ.jpg[/*img], results in the image shown in the post.

    Thanks but I’m on another forum that runs a very low bandwidth so I was using hotlinks but they weren’t showing live over there, I needed to test the same link here and they were live. We got the problem resolved.
    Thanks for stepping up to help though.

    No problem. A number of people have issues with figuring out how to add the pictures. I should probably copy this and post it to the rules thread or make an instructional sticky in the marketplace.
