    Ah, sorry. You'll use the IMG tags once you have your pictures uploaded to a photo sharing site like imgur.com.

    Once I get off my phone I will post a few screenshots that go step by step.

    [IMG] http://example.com/pic.jpg [/IMG]

    [IMG] = beginning of code for server/browser to know that a picture will be inserted here.

    http:// = hyper text transfer protocol. It's the standard call on the internet for a web address.
    example.com = imgur.com or freedomcardboard.com or really any dot com out there that is hosting the picture. Imgur is hosting the picture so this is calling imgur server.

    /pic.jpg = / is telling the server that the pic is in the main server folder. pic.jpg = the name of the pic. pic can really be anything you name the pic. the word pic here is used as a generic name for a pic.

    .jpg = the type of file the picture is. .jpg is the most common and web friendly file type for pictures.

    [/IMG] = closes out the code and tells the server and browser that the picture ends here.

    I'll use a picture from my hosting service for example:
    [IMG] http://www.fordmanf150.com/gintertemplatesmall.jpg [/IMG] *Note - Dont use a spaces. I had to use one in this example to get it to show up correctly.



    Hope this helps a bit,

    Just as an FYI the only picture showing in the app is the last Ginter one. All the others pictures show broken links

    Thanks,

    Ok, the app is interpreting the brackets on the code differently than a desktop browser does.

    So here is a screenshot of what I originally posted:



    Hope this helps!

    Hey @psj here is a sample picture from the tutorial I'm making



    Bonus --- resize inline - just add a lower case L right before ".jpg" to make a huge image smaller.

    Ok - imgur tutorial. Not so much different from Photosuckit. @psj and anyone else who is lost in this post-Photobucket era.

    Go to imgur.com


    Click the arrow next to New Post and select Upload Images


    Click Browse to find the image on your computer (like from a scanner)


    Browse to where the image is located on your computer


    Select the image and click Open (Pro tip: hold the control key on your keyboard and click on all of the images you want to upload for a bulk upload)


    Once your picture is uploaded to imgur, mouse over the top right corner and click Get Share Links


    Click the Copy button next to BBcode (Forums) - this copies the link to your clipboard


    Come back to FCB and paste it in the post


    Bonus tip for resizing like a pro without editing

    Ok, what I used to do to get my pics on here was:

    1st- id take the pic, and post it on Instagram.
    2nd- id then hit the little photo button in the browser bar above the text window, and upload the pic from my instagram file to fcb. Now, can I still do that with the above tutorials, or do I have to start using imgur or whatever??

    Add .jpg at the end of the link.

    Add
    HTML Code:
    [IMG]http://imgur.com/5wKd8SDl.jpg[/IMG]
    (small L) at the end of the link to make the image smaller to look better on a phone.

    Make sure you wrap the link with the
    HTML Code:
    [IMG] [/IMG]
    tags. No spaces though inside the brackets.

    Regular .jpg


    with small L at end of link


    UPDATE: It seems as if you dont need to add the small L at the end of the pic link as the app will auto adjust the size.
