How to add an image from Photobucket

Postby Trugga on Thu Aug 15, 2013 11:06 pm

Assuming you have a Photobucket image hosting account (http://www.photobucket.com)

From the screen where you can view your image, select the code that appears in the "IMG" link area on the right


If the word "Copied" appears in yellow, then the code has been copied to the Windows clipboard, otherwise select the text (turning it blue) right click and select "Copy".

Now, in the FOG forum post editor, right click and select "Paste"

Job done :D

If you don't have the "IMG" option, click the text "Update Link Options" (you'll need to be logged in to your Photobucket account), which will bring up this screen:


Ensure the indicated box is ticked, then scroll down and click the "Save" button.

The FOG forum is quite strict on posted image sizes (max 640 pixels on the long side). You can get Photobucket to automatically resize all uploaded images: From the same screen as above scroll down a little to the "Upload Options" section and click on "Customize Upload Options"


Select the 640x480 option and hit Save.

I hope that helps

Here's the picture posted following the above instructions:

brill post Lozza...and much needed... 8) 8) 8)

Deffo one for the how-to's...

Do you think its worth adding a note in your how-to such that if you move stuff later in folders it breaks the links, or worse still if you leave your PB account inactive for more than "X" number of weeks/months it looses the lot????
Check out the index thread below where pics/reviews from all our past meets can be found!!!!
click here for the SE Events Index/links Thread...see all the reviews and whats coming up soon!

Looks like I'm in trouble with the Mrs's again...
She asked me what I'd most like to do to her body...
Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

If you mean how do you copy your image into your post;

Hover over the left top corner of the image you want to share (three horizontal lines)

Click "share"

click the IMG (bottom) option, it'll auto copy to your clipboard

paste this directly into your post, and voila, pictures
