Where to get images and pictures to use in your posts
Here at Men's Hair Forum, we encourage visual posts where pictures and images are included in posts, whether when asking questions or posting advice. The way to place images in this forum is via embedding the image from its source. All you have to do is right click the image where you found it and then click on "Copy Image URL" or a similar option that you will have when you right click the image.

Once you have copied the URL of the image, you then click the "Insert Image" button when making a post and that's it (the "Insert Image" button is a small square icon with a purple mountain shape and an orange circle emulating the sun). If you have done everything right, you will then have the URL of the image you want to embed surrounded by the tags [img] [/img].

For example if your the image's URL is: picture

then when you embed the picture with the "Insert Image" icon, the link will now appear as:

[img] picture[/img]

Where to get images to embed in your posts

The best places to embed images from are the social platforms. Social platforms are constantly posting images of men's hairstyles and haircuts as well as facial hair styles and other looks and styles regarding men's hair. Thus, these platforms are great to grab pictures from to embed in your posts. Namely, these are the most popular social platforms where you'll be able to find plenty of men's hair pictures:
  • Facebook
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram
  • Twitter: sometimes, some images on Twitter do not offer the "Copy Image URL" option when right clicking on the image.
  • Tumblr
  • Blogspot

You don't need to search in the platforms themselves for pictures, if you're searching for pictures to embed on Google and you come across pictures that are posted at any of the above social platforms, then those are great pictures to use to embed into your posts.

Other great sources of men's hair and hairstyles images to embed include newspapers (especially sports newspapers) and magazines (men's magazines and gossip magazines). Blogs are also good sources although use blogs as a last resource and instead use social platforms as per the listed above as well as newspapers and magazines to get your images to embed from. Again, searching for images on Google is usually a good way to find good images that you can use to embed in your posts.

You can also upload images to any image sharing site such as Photobucket,, ImageShack and IMGur. However, make sure that you have copyright permission from the owner of the image/s if the image/s you are posting are not yours.

Lastly, please be aware that you ned 50 posts to be able to post/embed images. However, if you have less than 50 posts, you can contact any mod or admin and mention what images you'd like to embed. The admin or mod will review your case and may enable you to embed any images you want despite you having less than 50 posts.

I'm one of the admins of this forum. Any questions/issue? Contact me directly or any of the moderators. We welcome any feedback to improve our community.
