Open any older post(s) of yours and the image should be there.

******************************************************

You don't have to upload all images to IMGUR to post on TD.
When you see an image to post on TD, right click and "COPY IMAGE ADDRESS".
Click REPLY on any post to open options page.
Click the "img" button and paste into box that appears on top of page.

Hope this helps for the non-tech folks.
Feel free to ask any question if I may have missed a step.

re: Picture tutorial on how to post images using Imgur
Thanks, seemed like it would be simple enough, so I attempted on the Poli Board to post a pic for the 1st time. In turn, I copied link for the pic on my iPhone from Imgur & copied image link from “share” to the “img markup” box on TD & submitted. Did not submit a pic, so I simply added a link to avoid a blank post.

Am aware of the direction you provided, but still unsure why the link from Imgur did not work (left the “https” as the “img markup box” directs).

Use the "PASTE" option, not the "SHARE" option from the iphone to the TD avatar image line.

Do you really think you can educate the retards on TD? Most of them have to get the neighbor's grandkids to even turn their device on.

Holy shite if you can't post an image without a pictorial.

Also, it's not that easy for an AVI. YOu had to resize it to a certain image size.

"signature and avatar images must not be larger than 30 kbytes (30,000 bytes) in size. To determine the size of an image, right-click on the image and go to properties."

I think this is a bit outdated since they no longer use the mobile version.

It seems that everything must go through either their app or a pc.

Nice helpful post anyway by the OP.

You posted a link to the imgur page that contains the image. I posted a link to the image itself.
