Posting Pictures - Step By Step Guide

Postby Tarquin » Sat Nov 06, 2010 12:06 am

Step by step on how to post a picture(s) using Photobucket:

- Get yourself a FREE account at http://photobucket.com/

Once you have an activated account, follow these steps using the 'old uploader':

- Login to your PhotoBucket account/album,
- Click on the 'Browse' button,
- Find the file/pic you want to upload and double click on it, (Repeat to add more pics)
- Then click the 'Upload' button and wait for the website to upload your pics to your photo album.

Now you have uploaded the picture(s), follow these steps:

- Select the picture you want to post,
- Copy the 'IMG Code' link,
Image
- Paste the link into your post (Repeat to post more pics)

And submit your post and you should see your picture(s).

Hi Tarquin.
I’ve stated a blog on the restoration of my 8v; however I am having trouble getting Image Shack to leave my photos alone. Check out my Blog to see the full extent of the damage.
Could you recommend a solution to this issue? My mate has tried Photo bucket but had trouble getting his photo’s to upload to a size greater than a postage stamp, that’s why I used Image Shack.
Do you know why I’m having all this trouble?

Cheers Thevdubman.

I just tried the photobucket link but it just posts the written link not the picture when I preview? Will it show the picture when I submit fully?

Its been acting awkward recently.
You need to delete the area prior to the [IMG part of the link And anything after the [/IMG part of it.

Hope that makes sense.

Anyone used sites other than photobucket and flickr? Photbucket annoys me with all the ads and glitchiness and I'd rather keep Flickr for 'decent' shots rather than pictures of random bits of my MK2.
