How to post the screen shot or image in the forums

In order to post images, you first need to have a place that will host your pictures online. You can sign up for a free account at ImageShack® ( and have plenty of free space for your pictures as well as an easy way to keep track of and share them.

Once you have your picture hosted on the web you will need the URL of the image. The URL is given by ImageShack (see below image) in multiple formats so all you have to do is copy and paste the Hotlink for forums without having to manually add the img tags around the URL. Or you can use the Direct link to image URL and add the img tags manually.

To display the picture inside your post copy the url, which will be available at the upload site of your image, and place it between img tags using  BBCode (;page=post#bbc) formatting.

Example: The images on this page would look like this before clicking the reply button.


If you're starting a new topic or if you click the reply button in an existing topic you will see a row of icons. By clicking the icon highlighted below you will automatically insert the img tags. Or you can simply type them in yourself and add the URL between them.
