Posting photos on the Forum...


New improved instructions courtesy of Ian McGowan, these incorporate the changes Photobucket have made recently.

Many thanks to Ian:


Now then - To place a picture on this Forum .....

Go to your ‘Photobucket’ album, move your cursor onto the first album picture that you want to post and a drop down menu will appear – left click in the small square box at the top LHS of the drop down menu which will then display a tick. Repeat this for each of the photos which you wish to post.

Now scroll down to the bottom of the page and find the “Choose action” in blue, left click on this and a drop down menu will appear. On this small menu left click on “generate link codes for selected”.

A new screen will open. This is headed “Generate link codes”. It contains five full-screen-width options. The top one is the one required for our purpose. This is entitled “HTML for websites & blogs (MySpace, eBay, LiveJournal, Craigslist and more)”.There are two options here, “clickable thumbnails” or “Full size” decide which you wish to post (clickable thumbnails recommended if you are posting more than one photo).


These two options will contain a lot of gobble-de-gook HTML code, which you do not need to understand! Move your cursor onto the relevant box of code and left click. The box will flash yellow with the word “copied” shown in black.
Now go to the Forum, and open a Reply or Post box in the normal way. RIGHT CLICK and PASTE the code into your response. It should commence with the word "centre", and end with "/centre", both in angle brackets.

You may now type lines of text above the code or below, but do not disturb the actual code when once you have entered it.

New Instructions from Ian McGowan, March 2013:

"Go to your Photobucket Album move your cursor to the picture which you want to post and in the top righthand corner of the picture a "cog" icon will appear.

Move your cursor to this and a drop down menu will appear.

Left click on "get links.." on this menu.

You will now get a variety of options, the one which you want is the third one down "HTML".

Left click on this and it will turn yellow and say "copied" in black.

Now go to the Forum, and open a Reply or Post box in the normal way. RIGHT CLICK and PASTE the code into your response.

You may now type lines of text above the code or below, but do not disturb the actual code when once you have entered it."
