    You might have noticed posting large photos on Canadart isn't quite as easy as it is on Facebook, I hope this photo guide helps you.


    Firstly download the Imgur app, this is the file hosting site that you will use for embedding photos on Canadart.

    [​IMG]
    After creating an Imgur account post your desired photo to their servers.

    [​IMG]
    Choose your desired photo

    [​IMG]
    After posting, return to your profile in the bottom right corner and select the image you have uploaded.

    [​IMG]
    Click the photo once more

    [​IMG]
    And finally press the share button and copy the link to your photo.


    Now for the Posting!

    [​IMG]

    Select the image icon in your post control panel

    [​IMG]

    Paste the link you copied off of Imgur and press Insert

    [​IMG]
    And there you have it!

    The younger members are probably wondering how we old folks ever functioned before Facebook :confused:

    Hope that helped, enjoy posting!

    This is great and will definitely help new members! There is a file size upload limit of 2.5mb. Imgur is definitely a better solution!

    I remember trying to bumble my way through this process with Photobucket years ago. Imgur is a lot easier to work with, that's for sure.

    My computer said this app is incompatible with this device, is there another way to load pictures?

    Are you on your laptop/desktop computer? You dont need to use the imgur app in this case, you can just do it directly from a browser through imgur.com

    This worked for me. The only problem I found was that I can’t access my favourites album from my phone on Imgur. It only allows access to my main album that has a ton of pics. Definitely a first world problem. I’m still pretty excited that I have finally figured this out.

    Thanks!
