    Given that this is a costume forum, we hope folks will post all the lovely pictures of their costumes!

    Since tarvalon does not do the image hosting, we recommend Imgur as an easy place to host your images to share here. They don't have limits on the number of pictures (unlike flickr) and the link is default viewable to everyone (unlike google photos or facebook)

    1) First, you will need to make an account on Imgur. Do so!

    2) Click your account icon on the top right (mine looks like an M, presumably for my first initial). On the menu that opens up, click on Images

    3) Click the big green Add Images button

    4) Click on the picture you've just uploaded. Imgur gives you a link with the forum code right there, so just copy paste that into your post.

    5) Rejoice in your image posting victory!

    I am a complete Imgur beginner, and not particularly tech savvy- it took me no time at all to figure it out!
