Open it up & follow the instruction to sign up...Once you have an account & are logged in...

1/ Open page...I find it best to open in a seperate tab. this is on a PC tho not sure how it works on a phone...

2/Click on the green box ''new post''

3/This brings up a box with a brose button. Click on it.

4/ This brings up your pics...select the pic you want to post, click on it it will turn blue. Click on the ''open'' box.

5/ This will upload you pic. It will show the pic in a new box & it will have a copy option showing...ignor this & go to point 6.

6/Hover over your name in the top right of the screen. A drop down box will appear. Select ''Images''

7/ This will open your saved images. The new one will be top left.

8/ Click on that.

9/ It will bring a larger pic up & on the right hand side is a list of different codes...5th down... box marked....''BBCode (message boards & forums)''

10/ Click on ''copy''

11/Go to forum, right click & select 'paste'.

12/ This will appear... Image ...note you do not have click the [img] box on the forum the link you copy from Imagur will have it already.

As said thats how it works on a PC...On a phone no idea but the steps may be similar.


Hope this helps....post away.

Cheers Mac.
Managed to upload picture, although didn't expect URL address to appear instead of picture. That's why I added no text - wasn't sure it would work. Picture's a few years old now though.
I've got the standard (debaffled) cans on it now.
