Posting images from Photobucket
« on: March 29, 2011, 03:07:33 am »
Now I know this has been asked and answered before but I can't find it  :banghead:

I have 2 1946 GB builds almost ready to post but for the life of me can't figure out how to post from Photobucket !

Can someone please post a "click by click" idiots guide on how to post from Photobucket ?

Maybe then we can pin it for those of us who are IT thick ?

Thanks in advance

Chris

Chris,

If you click on 'direct link' in Photobucket, it will copy the hotllink for the picture in question.  Then on here, click the 'inset image' button (looks like a small picture, second button from the left below the character formatting bar.  That will bring up [IMG][\IMG] on your post (The actual slash will go in the opposite direction (/), but if I don't do it like that, it will try to insert a picture).  Insert the hotlink between these two bracketed items and the picture will appear in your post.

Regards,

Mav

Chris,

Doesn't Photobucket have a way of showing you the 'direct html address' of the piccies you want to post? I know Image shack does as that's what I use. Then you can import the direct html address into your post here and Bob's your Uncle, or should be anyway. I'll just test it.....

Yes it does work like that. You post the direct html link and then highlight it, then hi the 'Insert Image' icon from the library above, 2nd from the left on the 2nd row down, looks like small tele screen.

It's even easier than that: if you mouseover the image, a box of data will appear below it, including a window marked "IMG code" with a string of gobbldegook in it. Put your mouse in that window, left click and it'll change to "copied". Then just paste the result into your forum post: it already has the IMG codes around it.

Just get the dreaded red crosses  :angry:

Harold. When I move my mouse over the picture nothing happens. However there is a box of data underneath with an IMG code in it. I copied that, pasted it into the body of my post and got the red cross !

Like the guys said, hold your mouse over the small picture on your album page, and a box will appear below it with all sorts of codes that start 'http'.  Now put your cursor over the box marked 'Direct Link' and left click it.  It will briefly change to 'Copied'.  Come onto this site, and start a post - as Maverick said, select the insert picture icon (second from left, bottom row of icons), put your cursor right in the middle of the middle brackets, left click, then right click, and select 'Paste'.  (Apologies if I am teaching granny to suck eggs!)  I had similar troubles when I couldn't transfer pics from our PC to Ebay - So I took to using Photobucket instead.

Does the IMG code start with [IMG] and end with [\IMG] (but with the slash the other way)?

If so, it should work..... :unsure:

Is the folder a public one or a private one?


The way photobucket works for me changed all on it's own some time ago: I used to get a selection of codes under each picture, but now I get the mouse-over routine....

Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.

Below each picture (or beside), there are four choices: Email/IM, Direct Link, HTTP, and IMG. For the purposes of this forum, use the "IMG" link. Click on the line of code next to the "IMG" link and it should be briefly replaced by text saying "Copied". Then come back to your post and either use <ctrl>V, (control+"V") or right-click and select "paste". The code, beginnign  and ending with the img" tag should appear, looking something like this:

or do it another way..............use tinypic which is owned by photobucket

1.....use 'browse' to find the pic you want on your hard drive
2.......hit 'upload'
3....copy 'img code for forums' bit (all of it! ) and paste it into the thread you want the pic to appear in

easy as that
