Posting Images on the CGtalk Forum

I create that Threat, since so many new forum user try to post images without success or have problem doing it:

So First, if you want to post images you would need to upload the images on a server like or You can choose big size image with better resolution, all image hosting server should hvae a tool to downgrade the resolution and giving you options.

Then to copy the img link on the forum, you click the image icon in the tool bar of the message section. It will open a “pop-up window” to ask you to paste the image link. So you do that: paste the image link. Pressing Ok. Voila, it should display that string of text.


I usually post small size images like maximum 600px width and 600 px height. Original image should be larger then HD format (1920x1080) and linked.

If you have difficulty, relay on Youtube:


So like I said, I personnally display small size images and linking the huge version. Images will load much faster. linking external link is the same process… It’s use HTML tag.

Linking link:

A) From an already posted image: You should add a URL tag before the image between “[” and “]”: (URL) and end it by closing the tags (/URL). should look like that:


Currently doing nothing, since the image point to nothing.
you just need to paste the huge size version of your image in the first url tag.
(url=…/image00001-largeversion.jpg) (/url)


B) If you didn’t post an image yet: Click on the URL icon next the the picture icon in the tool bar. It will ask you to post your text of display (that’s your small size image link) then press ok. Next question will ask you to post the large size version of your image: Paste the link to your large size version of your image, press OK.

It will display like that but we html tags “[” & “]”:

(url=http:/…/image00001-largeversion.jpg) (img)

Visually, it’s an image in-between url tags. Should work.
