Hello all you new voaters! Welcome aboard!
DetectiveSplat here with a PSA regarding image links.
Here at Voat we are trying to move away from Imgur. Of course you can use any image host you prefer but our image host of choice is Veuwer.
Once you upload your image you are looking for the URL which will give you a direct link. Many hosts offer this as a copy paste url. You can also click on your uploaded image, this will open the image in a new window. This is called a direct link.
If are wanting to share an album that you uploaded you should be looking for the "album url" link.
If you use that URL as your link then Voat has a really neat feature users can take advantage of. There is + sign next to posts ; with a direct link other voaters can view your image by clicking this plus sign without being directed to a new website.
This makes it much easier to see content and doesn't distract from the immersion in the site.
Thanks everyone! Happy Voating!!
edit: Veuwer does have it's limitations as it only supports jpg, png, gif and a Max file size: 10 MB.
For gifs. and webm I would recommend Gfycat. uploads are limited to 15 seconds.
