Easy enough on a PC but I can't get that url on my phone.  The other one is the only share code that imgur will provide through the app.  I no longer have an source that I can get on my phone that I can upload to, find the code, copy and paste it here, put the [img] codes on it... Photobucket, imgur, dropbox, google drive, nothing works.  I rarely have time to get to a computer any more.

I think that none of the photo services wants to make direct linking to the photo easy, even from a PC.  >:(
But looking at the imgur code, it seems that they make it easier than others: add a leading "i." and a trailing ".jpg":
http://imgur.com/##### => http://i.imgur.com/#####.jpg

I'm most of the day in front of a PC but I need to remember to check the forum on a phone. I'll look for alternatives.

Thanks ta0 I don't want you to have to spend a bunch of time on it, I just want you to know the problem and I hope a solution presents itself in the future.  Maybe somebody else has figured out a way to get a picture on the forum using only a phone?  Maybe we can have a contest lol...

NEW EASY METHOD TO POST IMAGES!

Just click "Add image to post" below the text box, and then browse for your photo, or drag it, or put the url, and presto!





The post will show the image thumbnail and if you click on it it will be full size.

Attention: the image will be hosted on a third party server, imgbb.com, over which I have no control.

You are something else, Jack! You post images on most of your comments and on a thread where it would have made sense to post a test image, you don't!  :-\  ::)  :D

I don't understand the question. Can you explain again what you want to achieve?

One thing I didn't like was the thumb size photo. But it seems you can also link directly to the image. After you load it as explained above, go to the image, right click and copy the image location url, and use it on your post between image codes like this:
Code: [Select]
[img]image-url[/img].



You can control the size by adding a "width" or a "height":

Code: [Select]
[img width=500]image-url[/img]or
Code: [Select]
[img height=400]image-url[/img]

Wow!  I like that picture.  The sheer joy on the faces and the swirling colors makes for a great shot!!!

My 16:9 phone images are getting cropped to squares when displayed here from imgbb but show correctly -- i.e., without cropping -- when viewed on imgbb directly.

Adding width=500 and height=281 attributes consistent with the 16:9 format just stretches the crops horizontally without revealing the cropped portions.

Suggestions?

Jeremy: do what I explained 3 messages above. Basically, after you upload the image, you go to imgbb (by clicking on the image in the preview) and grab the direct link to the full image, which you replace for the cropped image link.
