Unless you have paid for photobucket your not allowed to share pictures on 3rd party sites, eg forums.

Think most of us have moved to imgur ( but there are others) , actually easier then photobucket as it gives you the full URL to cut and paste on there, just use the large thumbnail on the forums link and it sets the pictures a nice size.

Hope this helps.

You can still use photo bucket. Once you have uploaded to photo bucket you cut and paste the the Image URL path into your post like so:



Note I was on photo bucket before it went all commercial. I haven't signed up to anything new and find it quite clunky to use but it serves it's purpose for this sort of posting.

There is a detailed thread on the forum somewhere on how to go about it from square one

flickr is also very easy..... It also allows you to choose what size image you want to share with a forum/bulletin Board..

This is the account i've setup just for sharing Bimota images... I keep it seperate from my other photography pages.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146683098@N03/

I found that the advertising on Photobucket was too intrusive, the interface is extremely slow and clunky

TBH not logged into photobucket since they went commercial as they shut everything down until you paid, which I did'nt.
Obviously they had a change of heart as no-one paid.!!! It is clunky though.Others seem better.

Thanks everyone, I've worked out photo bucket I think and will change to Flickr if I run into problems..

Heres my first test picture, if it works I'll start adding photos the rebuild progresses.

Thanks again

Very Happy Very Happy Success !!! Very Happy Very Happy

Another tip is to always preview before you post , so you can fix as pictures always seem to be problematic .
