I know that there is a' free site link 'to use for posting pics, but my computer isn't
letting me download it.Or, my security settings are not letting me?
I just don't understand how to NOT have to use the attachment link.
I have tried to do it many times ,and just don't undertand it.
I have read many of other people's posts, and all of the 'How to use the forum stuff', it is very kind of them t do this, but I still don't get how to use the post a pic/graphic normally.:shrug:
I have used Photobucket for years, but only on one forum.(not here), and I just don't
know which 'option' to use on photo bucket to use to post a picture.
Does anyone know how to do this?
Please help me, if anyone knows, I guess I could just not use graphics aside from the ones we have.
anyways, if someone knows and has time, I would appreciate help please, and thanks.
Tig's cluless mom.

I've never used photobucket (in fact, with my dial-up, I'm often unable to even download pics people post off the photobucket site), but I checked some of the posts of people who use photobucket and it looks like the pics are posted as URLs. So if you find the picture you want on photobucket and click on it, can't you then copy the URL of that pic to your post here and have it show? :shrug:

If you can't figure it out, try PMing Luvmypitgirls...I know she uses photobucket.

I can help here. So you HAVE a PB account, and pictures uploaded to it?

Click on the picture you want to use. You should see a box open that says "share this image" with four options (html code etc.) Copy the entire line in the option labeled "Direct Link".

Come back here, and click on the Insert Image icon in your post. It's the one that looks like a yellow square with a mountain and a sun (moon?) lol round thing. Clicking there will open a popup window. Paste the copied info from PB into that window, and hit ok. The picture should now be in your post

You won't actually see it until you post it, or preview it though, until then it will just look like code

Ha. THat pic is just for funsies, I used it as a "test" run to make sure this worked.

HTH!

No, I just have used PB on another forum for years and it always works.
I thought it would here, but It may be that I don't have my photobucket set to share or let anyone browse through it, it maybe a setting that I have which is preventing me to post from it, but I don't want it to be open.
I just may have to keep trying, ot just use the attach button and put my stuff from photobucket back into my own 'Pictures files' it's just that it takes tons of time. I tried to down load that free pic site thing thaat they have and it didn't work. I am not good at computer stuff but have to have higher security on my computer because of work site, and stuff.
I guess I will be using the Attach button.:(

This is what you just posted:

You've got two sets of IMG commands, and one is blocking out the other...

It should look like this:
(IMG)http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g18/dawfan/Thank_You_So_Much.gif(/IMG)

Oh I know...when the popup window appears in Pets after you click on the add image button, make sure you use the mouse to highlight the "http://" that shows up in the window, and paste OVER it... that should fix it...

When I press the yellow box, it has the V logo, and then a blue ' http:// highlighted, I just paste it after that, and press ok? should after I post it it is in blue, should it be NOt bluewhen I paste something?
I think this maybe why I have some extra [Img] things.
But it did work a couple of times, I am tried deleting the pic and redoing it but it didn't seem to work.
I have used photobucket on other forums, and it always works.I clicked on 'properties and it said Java Script. I don't know if that makes a difference, it shouldn't because I was able to post some pics. Maybe it depends where I got the graphics? I used photobucket search and some one from another forum just posted them for me, as they know I love cats.
Does that matter?

http://
the last thing I posted was the thing inside the box, should it be blue? or should I post over it? or after it?
It seems like when I paste after it I get extra stuff, or it doesn't work.
My explanation is clear as mud.
I am sorry to take up so much of your time, :sorry:

ok in the yellow little box the one with the mountain and sun under the arrow,remove the http// in blue and copy your code into it

if you are using the blue world one the same thing

I think.....

or just not use them (the yellow box with the mountain or the blue world) and paste the [img] right into the reply box it's a lot simpler

try that

I may set up a public file and see if that will work, I am not sure if some of my files can be public and some private? It's not like there is anything top secret in my photobucket, but I thought that peole could browse in my 'documents'? I don't know if that is true, but if so they could look at my other files. I know photo bucket has recently changed some stuff and I don't ahve a 'pro account', just a reg free one. I never thought it would be this complicated, plus I am not good at computer stuff. I apologized to all who have spent so much time with me, I really appreciate your time and help.
