[How-to] Add a thumbnail image for your desktop screenshot


Recommended Posts

First you have to host your image on an image hosting site, like this one http://www.kwikpiks.com/

that N1K have found !

With kwikpiks you have the option to create a thumbnail when you upload your screenshot, or you can make your own little preview of your screenshot, and upload it.

This is the default code for thumbnail [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]

You need the direct link for your full size image and the direct link for your little preview image (thumbnail)
you put the full size image link here [URL="full size link"][IMG][/IMG][/URL]
you put the little preview image link here [URL=][IMG]"little preview link"[/IMG][/URL]
to end up with this code to add in the post [URL="full size link"][IMG]"little preview link"[/IMG][/URL]

I upload a screenshot at kwikpiks and ask to create a thumbnail, now I have the two images in my account.
Full image: http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver.jpg
Thumbnail image: http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver_thumb.jpg
now the code [URL=][IMG][/IMG][/URL]
I copy an paste the first link here [URL=http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver.jpg][IMG][/IMG][/URL]
and copy and paste the second link here [URL=][img=http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver_thumb.jpg][/URL]

to end up with this [URL=http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver.jpg][img=http://www.kwikpiks.com/files/47/Wincert/Screensaver_thumb.jpg][/URL]
and I add it at the end of this post, now you see the thumbnail image and when you click on it, it will bring you the full screenshot image...
