What browser are you using?

Have you tried any others?



I know there was a problem with Microsoft Internet Explorer changing the [xxxx] into <xxxx> so the BBCode tags were broken.

The URL -MUST- end in .jpg Take off everything after that and -- voila!









Your URL will always start with - http:// ...and end with .jpg

I think you are getting closer. For normal pictures, while in one of your albums click in the "IMG Code" box. When highlighted, right click copy or control c. Then paste in whatever forum topic or reply you want. "IMG Thumb" does the small thumbnail pictures. Hope this helps and doesn't confuse.

For what it's worth, you do not have to use Photobucket to host your photos, there are other places. I use Picasaweb (which is also free). You can also often right-click on ANY picture on the web and see it's URL. If it starts with "http:// and ends with .jpg you can usually host it from where it is. Here's an example of a TW photo I Googled, right-clicked and looked at the Properties, and saw it was in the right format...



This is what that looks like (except I've changed the http: to abcd: and the square brackets into parenthesis for the example



(img) abcd://fc23.deviantart.com/fs42/f/2009/075/b/5/Yamaha_TW_200_by_Draken413o.jpg (/img)



Now here's what it looks like when you paste it in as it is...

ok i pulled this directly from the internet-- fit the mold- http at front and .jpg at end- make adjustments--




it worked but i left everything alone and followed your original advice- just making sure there is ONE http:// at the front and .jpg at the end. i tried the more complicated way you showed with the red text and it didnt work ( maybe i didnt get a space right or something.) what do the abcd and round parenthesis do anyways?



p.s. this is one of my current bikes -yamaha zuma 125-very fun on the street but not an off-roader no matter what anyone says (no ground clearance)

Truelight changed http to abcd and brackets [ to (



So you can see what it would look like typed. If he would have used http and brackets it would have shown the photo and not the script! Sometimes its hard to explain in a written format rather than verbal.



At least you got the picture posting down:).

You might also look at the URL of the image and see that you might be able to resize the displayed image. In the case of the image you displayed, (a thumbnail) the URL has 150x150 (the size in pixels) as part of the URL and the picture displays small, like this...







You'll also note that because you right-clicked the thumbnail and used that URL without expanding the image, it cut off part of the picture.



Here's another version from that same site as a 300x199 pixel image...







If you look around, often you can find a higher resolution image. When you find a picture, keep clicking on that image to drill down to it's largest available size. Here's your same pic as a 600x399 pixel image







When you right-click the image, Windows will tell you what size it is in pixels. (Right-click the image and then click Properties and look at dimensions)



If you are using Photobucket or Picasaweb, try to use a larger sized version of the image.
