Photobucket
« on: July 08, 2017, 04:46:12 PM »
After just seeing Gambo's post about photobucket, I have a question.

Sorry but I'm not the most techie minded of people, so does this mean I have to subscribe to post picturtes? If that's the I won't be. But how do I then post pictures to this forum?

It's free to sign up with PhotoBucket and you upload pics to it and then link to the. From the forum.

Sadly Blerk, until VERY recently that used to be the case, but Photobucket has cottoned-on that there's the opportunity to make a load of money out of this, and you now have to have a paid account to embed your pics on other websites and forums etc.

The only way around it (as far as I can see) without paying is to post links to your Photobucket pics in your replies, so they can then be viewed directly on that site.

When I say 'post links'..........I mean the link ONLY, without any [img] codes before and after it........

Like this.......          http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s510/Gambo916/targetcards067.jpg

NOT like this.......       [img]http://i1055.photobucket.com/albums/s510/Gambo916/targetcards067.jpg[./img]


A direct link is available by double right clicking on the image you want to share, and then clicking on 'copy image location' from the drop down box that appears. Pasting the link into your replies will then embed a link to you Photobucket account where the pic can be then seen by others.

Obviously this isn't as elegant as what we've been used to here on Planet Airgun, but some forums have never allowed pics to be directly embedded into posts, so we are no more hard done by than they've been.

Not ideal....but the best of a bad situation. :-\

If there is a pic visible in this post then Imgur.com  is a working alternative.

Yes, but I've only just checked my post on my laptop and I see that the pic is WAAAAAAY too big and the forum software doesn't resize it.

Might have to look at a different alternative.
