Let's say I have a picture on my computer...
« on: October 08, 2017, 02:24:18 AM »
Ok so I have a whole file folder full of potential npcs on my computer. Is there a way I can directly upload them into a post, or is the only way to create a link?

Best bet is to use an image hosting site (Imgur or the Elliquiy Wiki).  I know for certain that Imgur allows for multi-file uploads, but that sort of thing may also be possible on the wiki.  It is necessary to upload the images to some site in order for them to appear on posts.

The issue with imgur is that they're starting to crack down and ban people for using images on forum-based sites.

I personally use nickpic.host, but I'm not sure how multiple uploading works or if it even does.

'don't use imgur as your cdn'

Has this actually impacted anyone who was not running a site?

If I am running a game with npc's i just upload them to elliquiy. That way I don't have to worry about it getting deleted or the other site whining about it.

For what it's worth, BMR can hotlink images hosted on our wiki here.

I moved all my images to nickpic, but thank you.
