This is for everyone that isn’t quite sure how to display photos in their posts that are stored on their computer like the photos you may have taken of your own car and uploaded to your computer from your camera.

(If you want to post pictures that are already hosted on the web use this thread:
How to post pictures - that are already hosted on the web

If anything changes let me know and I will update it.

Hope this helps!

Cheers

Foresight

When you are at the download screen in Photobucket:

* Select the radar button for "Email" instead of from "My Computer"

* This will give you your own private email address

* Copy that to your address book with the name "Photobucket"

* Now, every time you browse a site with a picture you want, you just right click the picture and then "send" or "email" the picture to "Photobucket" and it goes straight into your Photobucket account

* About a minute later you will get a confirmation email saying it's ready, with a link straight to the image, superb!

Much easier when you're browsing for shots to use.

I have removed the congratulatory comments from this post and retained the informative posts.

I hope there is no objection to this action but felt the theme of the thread was too good to be lost in amongst the additional commentary.

U2U me if you feel strongly on my actions.

Thanks for the very informative post.

Bloody Hell !

     I've got a couple of great photos and thought I'd jump in to learn how to download them !  I thought there was nothing a metallurgist could not do !  (maybe I am just getting dumber as I get older!)

I will revisit this "how to post photos" after a few glasses of Jack and see if it looks friendlier (most things do!)
:cry:

I think Foresight's post may be out of date.  Believe photobucket has changed since he posted this

Easier to chisel it onto stone and hang it above my computer.

Yep,
 I am with you Ron,
reminds me of the definitions of software and hardware

Hardware is something you can actually kick....

What are people using now that photobucket are charging $399 per year for third party hosting?

If you don't know what I mean look at my avatar.

I am having the same problem, not going to pay. I love posting photos, but looks like it has come to an end.

Looks like Photobucket are cracking down on posting links to your pics on other websites (e.g. this one).

Probably just a matter of time until the rest of us get noticed...
Cheers,

Not really, there are other image hosting sites, I'll wait to see which one floats to the top; if photobucket are smart they'll reverse their decision before everyone switches over and they go the way of Netscape Explorer.

I have the same problem with photobucket - the images are not showing up and you need to register into there P500 plan !!! 399$ a year is certainly not worth it!

Is there anything the forum admin can do?  Any other way to post photos?

Cheers,
