You need to host it externally, through imgur or a similar site.

 

I know but I can't be bothered.

You should use ShareX. It takes literally just a couple of seconds to take and upload screenshots.

 

For example (video also made and uploaded with ShareX in just seconds): https://dl.dropboxus...26_13-42-37.mp4

 

(Alternatively, if you already have screenshots that you just want to upload somewhere, you can set up the program to do so. You can also customize end-destinations for different types of files or tasks - imgur for images, for example...although I just use dropbox for everything, personally.)

I tend to take a bunch of shots, open the folder with screenshots, select whatever I feel's worth uploading and then drag and drop it straight on imgur's main page. It'll automatically create a gallery, process the screenshots and create urls for individual images.

Aren't these shots public then? I don't like uploading my screenshots to everyone browsing that side, tbh.

No. Assuming you're talking about imgur, they are "unlisted", meaning if somebody has the link to specifically them, then yes, they are accessible. Failing that, however, they do not appear anywhere on the site proper.

Nope. They're only accessible via URL by default, unless you explicitly choose to share them with the imgur community (via the big green button.) There's also Post privacy settings where you can make the uploaded images private via 2 clicks so that people can't see them even when accessing your profile (provided you have a profile)

Edit: I would say Bart is a ninja, but matter of the fact is that I posted mine 4 minutes later, fact checking... So Bart isn't ninja, it's I who's a slowass turtle.

To add on to what Fenixp said, if you have an account on imgur, you can also delete the images at any time. Alternatively, you can go to dropbox, which works for image hosting as well as general files...but it isn't quite as convenient unless you're using a program like ShareX to automate link generating and such.

You must be fun at parties. I'm glad I could be a record breaker, now go change your panties :) I'm sure you have more important things to get offended at right?

I like the combination of painted backgrounds with in-game models, like this:

It makes it easier if you upload images to something like imgur, then post the link here, so people can see it big inside the post. It also will protect you from an eventual grumpy person telling you that uploading images steals forum bandwidth - though I haven't seen anyone do that complaint in ages, so you should be safe :)
