    How to upload a picture and post it on the forum

    I will try to explain in a very basic and bare-bones way how to upload pictures using an android device with the imgur app.

    1. DOWNLOAD THE APP
    Just go to the playstore and type imgur, it's a small app.


    2. OPEN THE APP & UPLOAD
    Use the small camera icons in the bottom of the screen


    2a. SIGN UP OR NOT
    You can upload pics without signing up, just Skip the step. However if you sign up you can see all your photos (otherwise if you lose the URL or forget where you posted it you'll lose the pic)


    3. SELECT A PIC AND CLICK NEXT
    When you select a picture there will appear a small green square at its top-right corner with a "1" on it. You can select various pictures to make a gallery. Either way after selecting the picture press Next.


    4. UPLOAD
    On the next screen press the Upload button on the top-right corner to start uploading.
    *Note: see how above the picture it says 'only me'? This is so your picture is not made public on the site. We want it to be this way. If you have an account it will say 'Public' by default so make sure to change that.


    5. VIEW
    After the upload is finished the text on the top-right corner will change to View, so press on that.


    6. SHARE
    We have the uploaded picture, the upload is done. Now we want to post it.
    First, let's click on the bottom-right green circle.


    7. COPY URL
    The URL is the image's address. After you press the button the URL will be on your clipboard.


    8. INSERT IMAGE
    On the forum's editor select the insert image icon.


    9. FROM URL
    On the insert image window press From URL


    10. PASTE URL
    Press the bar so you can type (the keyboard will appear). Then long-press on the bar (don't move your finger for a second or two) and the PASTE command will appear. Take your finger off the screen and press PASTE (a normal press)




    11. THE TRICKY PART
    Now we have the pasted URL, but this URL is not a direct link. Unfortunately the app doesn't give a direct link COPY command for it so we have to improvise a bit.
    You need to ADD something to the URL: "i." before "imgur.com", and also at the end of the URL add ".jpg".
    Hopefully the pictures make it clearer, I know the text can make one get lost.


    Get closer and press on the bar so the keyboard appears again.
    Add "i." at the start after 'https://' and ".jpg" at the end


    12. POST
    Press Ok and the editor will show a text just like this. It means you got it right.


    That's about it. This is how I do it. Hopefully it at least makes it clearer for some of you even if you use another image hosting service.
