Unhappy I just don't know how to use photobucket here, please help me.

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.
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?

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!
