Adding Pictures

I'm really confused but how can I add pictures to replies, because when I try to put an image, this shows up:
Can someone teach me how to do it?

Barkerfan05, it might be possible that your image exceeds the maximum size allowed.


Apart from that, you would need your own server that includes the picture or pictures you're trying to upload for it to work.  If you copy & paste from another site that probably won't work (the so-called hot-linking is something that's unpopular with site owners).  So you'll need to have a photo-hosting site (Instagram, Snapchat, etc) where you can obtain your images to put in your posts.  Now if you have Facebook that might work as they have the tags necessary for you to upload here.

Of course, you could get photos from your PC.  I'm not sure if you tried the above, but I'm not completely sure how you tried to post your images on the site either

How can I a picture from my PC? I tried to either drag or copy and paste the image. Both didn't work.

Upload the image to Imgur first. Once you've done that, click the down arrow that appears when you hover over the picture and select "Get share links". Copy and paste the BBCode to your post.

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.
