How do I posts pictures and have them appear in the thread?

This is something that gets asked pretty regularly, so here's my quick guide to posting pictures:

First, your chosen picture must be available somewhere on the Internet so that the forum software can find it to display within a thread. Our servers do not have the storage space to be the “repository” for the weight of all images posted within Team Talk.

It is considered very poor "netiquette" to link directly to images on other sites (otherwise called ‘hotlinking’) and, many sites are specifically set up to prevent it; that’s why you’ll sometimes see a ‘blank’ picture or other error image – some others even have text that scolds the poster for this "hotlinking" or ’leeching’ behavior.

A very popular free image hosting site is, there are other free sites out there to accomplish this – just Google search.

Essentially, upload your image following their instructions/service…they store the image on their servers and provide you with a “http//:” link protocol:

After uploading the image, you will see the various link-out fields…copy the “Direct Link for Layouts”:

When you are ready to post your image, click on the icon and copy/paste your “http//:” link in the window:

You should be good 2 go with an image posted within your text reply.

Hope this helps!
