    Because of Photoshop charging now to host photos for 3rd party viewing, can anyone tell me if there is a way to link a an image at Imgur so that it appears as an image displayed in the Mac Rumors forum post?

    They offer a direct link: http://imgur.com/ip5insv
    and a bb code link [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Photobucket, you mean.

    You'll need the BB code where only the link ending in your uploaded file format is present. Any other form of BB code will not work. You'll also be presented with a direct link to the image. The link you've provided is a gallery link. Ideally, you can right-click and view the image directly through a new tab.

    Code:
    http://i.imgur.com/ip5insv.png
    Which would be

    Code:
    [img]http://i.imgur.com/ip5insv.png[/img]
    And results in

    You can also get the code applied by clicking where I indicated in the message compose window. That will bring up a text box where you paste your link and click insert and get the same end result as manually typing in the IMG tags as @Zenithal showed.
