How to Post Images on the wikiHow Forums

Posting images on the wikiHow Forums is different than posting them on the main site. However, the process isn't too hard, but it still takes learning. Read this article to get started.


  1. 1
    Upload your image. There are many sites that offer free hosting of images, such as Imgur and Tinypic. You can also upload your image on wikiHow, making sure that it doesn't violate the image policy.
  2. 2
    Obtain the direct URL for the image. Most image upload sites will provide the URL after you upload the image. They may even offer the HTML code to copy. If available, copy the HTML code.
    • If you can't find the URL, you can always right-mouse-click the image and select "Copy image location" or "Copy image URL".
  3. 3
    Visit the discussion that you wish to include the image on, and click into the text box for the What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor. Then, click the image button (which is an image of a tree). Highlight the "http://" protocol, and right click and select "Paste".
  4. 4
    Click the Submit button. The image should now load into the text box, being ready to be posted when you click the Post Comment button.


  • Whether uploading to wikiHow or any other site, make sure you have permission to redistribute the image. If you aren't sure, it's best to either link to the original or not post at all.
