Default Re: How to post a picture.

Hi Everyone

Is there a way I can embed photos using my webshots account the way others are using Photo Bucket. I hate to create a whole new account? Webshots has some options but it seems that everything is just creates a link back to their site; which tends to be a little slow.

I can get a thumbnail image but not a full sized picture to show in my message.

Thanks,
Dave

If you copy and paste the "direct link to image" code for the 500 pixel image from Webshots then add
[ img ] to the front of the code and [ /img ] to the end of the code with no spaces, the picture will embed.

For example:

Code:
will display as:

Thanks Rick

That works but it limits the picture to 600 pixels; that is not a bad size but say you want to post a larger picture?

Here is a quick PDF I threw together on how to post pictures/Videos.

I hope it makes sense? Just because I understand it doesn't always mean a someone new will. Let me know.

I have a mac computer and use Photo Bucket so this is showing how to use them. For Windows users it's not that different and you should be able to follow along.

John,

Those are very helpful instructions, indeed. I would suggest only one small addition...

Once a picture is uploaded to Photobucket and referenced in your forum post, you may not move the picture to another album or sub-album in your Photobucket account. If you do the reference you made to it in your post will no longer be valid and folks won't be able to see the picture.

The implication of this is that you need to plan your Photobucket album and sub-album layout carefully before you begin uploading pictures. Big albums will make it difficult to find a desired pictures. Try to use small albums each devoted to a particular project.

Worth mentioning, if it hasn't been already: Once you upload a certain number of pictures to Photobucket - I forget what it is, maybe close to 400 - they seize control of your pictures and links to them and demand moola, as happened to Metal Butcher. Can't remember the amount, under $30 I think. Until you do that, there will be a placeholder where your pics once were in forums such as HMEM. Capitalists...they're everywhere.
