How to Link Back to Free Lineart on Your Thread

Postby Leurai » Sat Feb 25, 2012 7:27 pm

With the new rule about posting free lineart in the Creativity and CS Adoptables for Art forums, anyone offering to color free lineart must post a link back to the original image to prove that it's free to use. When reminding users of the new rule, many have complained that they don't know how to make a link back to the original image.
In an effort to quickly explain the process to them with minimal effort on my part, or anyone else', I've made this quick little tutorial about how to post an image and link back to it.

First of all, in order to be within the bounds of the rules, you may NOT find some random image hosted on Photobucket or Google. Just because someone has posted it on the Internet does NOT mean you can do whatever you want to/with it.

I'm using DeviantArt.com in this tutorial, because it has a search function, and there's plenty of free wolf lineart on it. The first three steps are to post the image in your topic, the last three explain making the link.

1.Go to DeviantArt, and in the search bar, type in "free wolf lineart". Read the artist's comments to make sure that it is free to use, and to see if the artist has any specific guidelines about reposting or recoloring the picture.

2.Now, with the full-sized image pulled up:
Image

3. Go back to your art or creativity topic.
Image

4. Now, to make the Link back to the original image:
Image

5. Back on your topic:
Image

6. Now, hit the preview button.

Remember, if you're posting more than one lineart, you must post a link back to the original image for each one.

Okay

Oh hello there! I am .Eclipse. I am
a pretty down to earth rad teenager.
As most teenagers, my life revolves
around the internet. I don't
have many friends, but I am open to
make some. Fluffy fanfictions have
ruined my life and I love to read.
Stop in and say hi! Maybe we will
have a common interest and we can
water our friendship garden
