Default NEW PHOTOBUCKET picture posting directions, PLUS 2 additional options!

NOTE: I started this Sticky thread to help people struggling with Photobucket. Since then, the Forum has also offered the option to use the "Attach" paperclip icon function AND the "Insert Image" icon function. Please see post #31 for a link to that most recent option.

--------------

OK, some people are having trouble with the new version of Photobucket. It doesn't give the automatic "drop down" menu under the uploaded photos, but it still works the same. NOTE!!! You can click on the little "gear" icon in the top right corner of your pic (you have to "hover" your cursor over the corner to have it appear) to drop down a choice for "get links" - please see detail below in post #12.

Here's a quick update. NOTE: I assume that you have joined Photobucket (for free) and already uploaded your photos. I am starting at the page where you have opened your Library in the NEW Photobucket:

Here is your opening page, showing your photos:



This is what shows when you click on the photo you want to post:



This is the bottom right corner of the same page- it shows the links avialable- you can see I have my cursor on the BOTTOM link, otherwise known as the IMG link:



This is what happens/ what it looks like when you click the IMG link- it turns yellow and says "COPIED"



Now you go to the Forum, and in the box where you are making your post, you PASTE the link you just copied. The link should look like this:



You make your forum post and SUCCESS!!!! It looks like this:



If it doesn't work, you did one of these steps wrong.


So to review... you can click on your photo to get a separate page with your photo and all the links you need, OR click on the little "gear" icon in the top right corner of your picture thumbnail in your library and go straight to a menu that you can choose to "get links."

COPY the IMG link and PASTE it into your post.

Default Help.

I have been successful in posting a picture but my recent attempts have failed.
I go through the complete process.
I open a reply and paste the link which was coppied from Photobucket.
The whole link shows up as shown in the Photobucket instructions.
In the preview it looks the same , full link between [IMG] at either end of the link.
After I click submit reply the posting shows a "X" in a box followed by "IMG".
I close the Forum, go back and no picture.
Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks,
Bruce B

If you will quote your recent post on old racecars, you'll find you have an IMG reference within an IMG reference that looks like this:

[IMG]http://[IMG]...

Jeff , so does that mean I am doing something wrong, I assume it does.
My son told me that there have some recent problems with the "new" Photobucket system. I have not looked into thisproblem".
I have some great Corvette racing pics and want to post them but I feel like a jerk when the post comes up with nothing but a short IMG message.
So to recap when I do a picture insert I see what you described such as this

Is this a valid picture code (?).

Then when I go to preview I get the "X in a box and "IMG"
Then when I post the preview I get nothing except X "IMG"
Any suggestions?

Well I just previewed this message and the picture came up.
I will now "submit reply" and see what happens

I'll try some more tomorrow.

Thanks,
Bruce Bursten WELL IT LOOKS LIKE IT WORKED. I'LL TRY AGAIN TOMORROW EVENING.

Over the past couple days, I've tried to send pics from Photobucket. What the recipients get is my whole Photobucket page. I've followed the posted instructions to a "T". What gives?

When I send pics from my computer (IPhoto) the image is huge, so I need to use my Photobucket.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dave

Briefly, this is the format used by this Forum. Other forums also use this format, while some others have the capacity to allow you to browse your computer hard drive.

You must be using the wrong link. If you copy the IMG link, you will only bring over that specific image.

Also, I was going to point out that rather than clicking on the picture to get a new page with links, you can just click on the little circular "gear" icon (you see it when you hover your cursor in the top right corner)- this will give you a "drop down" menu which includes an option to get links, then you can click on the bottom link (the IMG).

I made up a whole new instruction for this and I saw that LeMans Pete did a better one on the C3 side, so I stole his:

This is the "shortcut" that can be used so you do not have to click on every single picture. It makes it easier when you are adding multiple pictures to a post.



Once you click on "get links" it pulls up all the links with your library still in the background. Just "x" out the box to get back to your library.

And finally, Pete also provided a support link for Chrome users having trouble with blacked out links:

Photobucket support is pretty good if you look for answers to common problems.

You can also look on the right side of the album screen for a link saying update link options(it's blue) Click the link and then click the turn on easy linking mode then click save. Now the links will always be under your pictures.

I think you now have to 'open the picture first' and the links are there in mine..

just below the 'img', copy is a link update links option...if this is what you're looking for...
