Having a hard time looking on how to post images or videos?

Well here's a basic Tutorial. (:])

Click the spoilers. Just saying it in case no one knows how to use it yet. I doubt that at least one or few doesn't know how. (shame)

Note: I'll be removing a few images and put them as a link only because of image limit in a single post. (sorry)
Just click them to see the picture.

Posting Images
  • Step 1
Click the Icon above the "Image" box. Basically, the one that looks like a photo. (tongueout)
Spoiler
  • Step 2
This window/dialogue box will appear once you have clicked it.
Spoiler
  • Step 3
Now, to get a URL. You either need to google one and get the direct link in the address bar or when using a photo image hosting site. You must get the link from "Direct Link" and put it on the URL in the dialogue box.

Spoiler

GIF Limit by Nhikxter
GIF Limits =
200x200 or less
size: 100kb or less

JPEG Limit
Same as GIF except for size.
200x200 less or a bit more.
size: will not at least reach megabytes which is I'm pretty sure won't work.

Posting Videos

For now, there is no other way to post videos but we do have a code for that.

we'll be using this:

[media] link here [/media]


Look for a video you want to post from youtube.

Spoiler


Then paste it here like this:

[media]http://youtu.be/L6cQmGdtZFI[/media]


This should appear if done correctly. (:])




Note: There is a limit to how many images/videos that you can put per post.</p>
Images = 10
Videos = 5

If the media thing if it doesn't work. You have to remove the hyperlinking and also remove spaces.
Same for image posting. It won't work if the link itself is hyperlinked while doing another code.
(Refer to Kaizer's Post)

GIF and JPEG works in avatars.
As for sig, GIF also works too not just JPEG.

Setting your Notification Options for easy follow of Thread and Quoted posts

First, Go to My Settings (You can find it on the Top-right Corner under your username if you click it) > Then on the left side is Notification Options

Then check anything necessary for you, After you're done Click Save Changes and that's it.

I think that's not yet fully known or it's not yet fully implemented since the forums are still incomplete. Maybe he'll find what it is for if he gets curious. %20br= I have an impression that it's also for videos or pictures all in all. (:])

Like what Kaizer said, it seems that it can't be fully used yet unless the forum is completely updated. (shame)

Sorry, I still can't pretty much get the exact size, pixels and such so I didn't put it yet.

But somehow, GIFs works and JPG mostly doesn't work. I don't know why. (no)

Remove the linking. Highlight your post and then press the chain thing besides the Image icon.

It won't appear when it's already hyperlinked. Like this:

[url="http://youtu.be/o3zFud2T-5Y"]http://youtu.be/o3zFud2T-5Y[/url] (That url thing should appear but since it doesn't appear in yours. You have to unchain the hyperlink.

Kaizer is right, you should remove the URL/hyperlinking code to make it work.
I forgot to include/note that in the tut sorry. Same will happen to images if they're hyperlinked. (sorry)

Efraym, I think there's a pretty quick method to getting image URL's from the internet without the need to save as well as upload it, just discovered this recently. Just right click on an image and select "Copy image URL".

I tried it on your sig, it works and is insanely fast. (oo)
Posted Image

For personal pictures and screenshots, it still needs to be uploaded first though... (sorry)

If you already know this, don't mind this post. (shame)

Well, if the needed image is just laying around. Yeah, right click and open image in new tab works too.

Step 3 didn't mention that since it's google and it just needs to go Full Image, because open image in new tab will open the image with  it's current resolution so..if it's small, it'll be small while the original is big. (shame)

I make mine through photoshop. Converting the file to mp4 so it can be loaded in Photoshop.
Just needs a good quality video and tweak in photoshop and It will still retain it's quality in 64 ~ 256 (depending on how long the scene is.)

But there are also some online GIF maker around...except it has trademarks (the GIF maker site's url on a black thingie or something)

Maybe I can also make a tutorial on how to make it there? (shame)
