Hi Guys,
I want to make a post that includes a bunch of photos of a project I have been working on.
I always seem to get the photo attachment wrong. It's always either a low res image or link I enter in with the img tags still remains a URL.

What's the best method for uploading photos and adding them here?

So I do have to upload it to some hosting site first? No way to directly upload?

Weird. Your link looks good, but just want to double check that you're grabbing the link from the right hand side of Imgur in the Share panel, not from your browser bar?

Ok mister, what did you do different?
I need to add the i. before the imur.com url and then finish with the .jpg?

I'm not sure what web browser you're using so your right click menu might look different. But there should be a similar option.

I essential just use my Tumblr account for posting photos here.

There's no limit to the amount of draft photos you can save.

Also, nice job posting a 4K wide image and ruining everybody else's posting experience, chud.

I know, I'm a monster.

If HTI or a mod edits his post that quotes my image it'll be better. I edited my own post with a smaller version.
