How To Use Imgur Without an Account (PC)

Click images to enlarge -

1.) Go to: imgur.com and click the Green New Post button in the upper left corner of the screen. As shown:



2.) Choose one of the choices it shows. For this example, I'll click on the Choose Photo/Video option.



3.) Navigate to where your photos are saved, click on them while holding down the Ctrl key to select multiple photos, select Open.



  ** To share all photos in the album. Copy the link that is in the browser's address bar in the upper right corner.




If you need/want the single photo links continue with the steps below:

4.) To get the image links to each photo - mouse over the photo and click the 3 dots (...) for more options. Select Get Shared Links or right-click on image and select copy image address or location, depending on what browser you're using. More information in the notes below.



5.) Options - For our forum, we have a couple of choices - BBCode (Forums) or Share Link.
           - It is recommended to use the BBCode (Forums).



6.) Paste the image link(s) into a pm or forum message to share. - Click the preview button next to the Post button (Lower right, below message box) to check to make sure it's all good to post. * Need to put something in the subject line to use the Preview option.



  * If using the Share link, you will need to add a .jpg at the end of the link. As Imgur doesn't add it by default.
  * Using the BBcode has the img tag already within the link, so it's ready to go.

-- If you have a blog, you'll want to copy the Share Link.




Notes:

How do I get a URL for an image?

Right-click the image and in your browser select the following depending on your browser:

Chrome: Copy image address.
FireFox: Copy Image Location
Safari: Copy image address.
Internet Explorer: Properties Copy the URL address shown.

Example Shown From FireFox:

** Another way to select multiple photos - Select one photo to start, then press Shift and left-mouse click on the last photo you want to upload.

----

If you do not have an account with Imgur.com, you may not be able to delete your photos and/or albums you upload and share.

If this is a problem, you may need to contact Imgur.

You will need to provide them with links to the photos and/or albums.
