I tried to make a sketchbook post but the magic of it isnt there unless you can just look at the pictures without clicking a link. ;w; halp plz.
i tried uploading to flickr but it was just an icon that showed up. albeit, that was on my phone so i have to try on my PC.

You can upload them to sta.sh, imgur, tinypic, etc. They have to be in Img tags like this:
Code:
[img]LINK- make sure it ends in the file extension (jpg, png, etc.)[/img]

im sorry but i fond this still just as confusing ^^; so dont use the insert image button? or use the link button? or do i just type "" and then after that paste the share/embed link from the flickr page? or literally copy and past the URl from the top right there....????
I THINK i found the file extension in the link. but what im doing is, going down to the share arrow, and copying the embed link from the pop-up. there are different options though. Im really lost. is there a video to show me how to do it?

the options are: share, embed, email, and BBcode

You can type that code above. So it would be like:
Code:
[img]http://picture.com/img123.png[/img]

If that makes sense.

Replace the link with yours and see if it works. Flickr should work but it depends on what kinda links they use.

It has to be a proper link. That's not.

When I say proper link I mean it has to be an image link ending in a file type, like gif or png.

Flickr has protection against taking images I think, so you can't grab it.

Remove everything but the
Code:
[img]link[/img]

GREAT. now i got another problem. last time it wouldnt let me post because i couldnt have over 20 images. now i have 20 images, and it wont let me make a post because "please enter a message with no more than 10000 characters" wtf

huge links? yeah you can't put them back to back, they have to be separated
well i figured it out with stash just by copying the image like its from google but now i have a character limit...??? >.< and i dont even have a bunch of text. i made it 20 pictures because it wouldnt allow more than 20 last time.
