Photobucket Help

To post photos to the forum you must have a Photobucket account and have your photos uploaded to it. When you roll your mouse over one of your photos in Photobucket a box with four lines of code will appear. Click on the last (IMG) line of code with your left mouse button. The yellow box that says "Copied" will appear briefly. If the yellow box does not appear then right click in it and select "Copy", the line of text needs to be high lighted with a blue backgound and white text.
Back in your message editing window inside the edit window click with your right mouse button. Select "Paste" by clicking on it with your left mouse button.
The string of IMG code that you have just pasted to the edit box will have the "IMG" in capital letters. When you preview your message this way the IMG code will not convert to your photos and you will see the text code. If you change these to "img" (lower case) your photos will now appear in the preview window as they will in the finished message. You should have only one line of img code for each photo, I have two for illustration.

I hope this helps,

    I hope that's what you needed Kent. Let me know if not. I have an appointment to keep with Winkin', Blinkin' and Nod. ;)

    Exactly. My last link page has already been changed to show this link.

    Much thanks, Gator.

    Time for me to hit the hay too.

    You should have gotten a forum email from me. If not check your junk folder.

    A few days ago I posted some pics from P bucket and 2 of them were very large, had to scroll east and west. I made them smaller on photobucket but they would not get smaller on the forum. Any idea what I was doing wrong?

    Hi Ron,

    I think I have noticed the same thing in the past and have not figured that out. Sometimes I have renamed the resized image and had to go back and edit my new image name in my post in order to get the new size to show. I have started doing all my photo editing before up loading to Photobucket. I try to keep my photos size down to 500 pixels on the longest side, whether they are horizontal or vertical. This makes it easier for people with slower internet connections to view them and it also helps keep my limited space on Photobucket free. Also if I have a lot of photos or am using an animated gif file like this one that is the size of four images in this case.
    I can set my color depth, the number of colors used in a photo, from 16.7 million down to 256 which can also decrease the size of a file and save on bandwidth, how much traffic I am causing across the web/forum.
    If you open your Photobucket account and click on "account options" above the search window, on the right hand side of the account screen is your Account Dashboard that will tell you how well you are doing with your resources.
    Photobucket gives you a lot of space to play with and if you manage it well it will last for ever, well, almost.

    Thanks GB
    Have to size them before uploading, like you said.

    Just copy the "direct" link from photobucket, then come here and click the button on the toolbar shown below and paste into the Image URL.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.
