Posting pix:

The easiest and most permanent way (not subject to any outside source's rules) is straight from your computer, which is of course free. Instead of 'post quick reply' select 'advanced' and scroll down on the resulting display until you see a 'manage attachments' blank. That will give you the option to select an image from your own computer. 'Browse'. There will be an 'upload' option. A code will appear down near that 'manage attachments'---click on it. That will actually upload the file as a thumbnail, and you are ready to post your comment. Once you post, the thumbnail moves up into your comment box. If a user clicks on your thumbnail, it will expand into a larger image. The result looks like this:

Sk8r,

I have seen these thumbnails on several posts including this one. Once I click on the image, I get the circling Icon, but it never expands. For example, I clicked on the one in your comment and waited for two minutes and it never expanded. Am I doing something wrong? Any assistance would be appreciated.


Thanks.

Aiken, I do not know: it might be a setting on your computer. I'm not having trouble with it, nor are others. Can anybody offer a suggestion?

I'm not sure why people have such issues? I have been using Imgur and its really no different then photobucket is/was.

In imgur you upload the photo, click on said photo, at the bottom click on huge thumbnail, then copy the [img]Photo url is here between the tags[/img] tags (referred to as BB code for message boards) into your post. Exactly the same as you use to do in photobucket with the exception of resizing(PB did that part for you).

Like this:


or even better since most people are using a mobile to take these photos, download the app Tapatalk. It's as simple as clicking on the new post button then clicking the plus sign. Tapatalk uploads directly from your mobile and sizes them correctly for viewing.

The best part about both of these methods is that you have full size photos within the post and no one has to click on the thumbnail to view the photo.

Just a small FYI....

More often then not, uploading photos directly to this site as Sk8r pointed out, fails.
