    Load your pics into the my pictures folder on your pc,then sign up with
    On the photobucket album page you should see a submit and a browse button,right click browse,it should bring up your my pictures folder,click on the picture you want to post,it should begin uploading to photobucket,after the upload is finished scroll the albums page up and you should see your pics as thumbnails,each one will have a web adress underneath,I just highlite and print the adresses,then I go to HSM bbs hit the post new button,type the required b.s. and post the links for the desired pictures.

    Anyway thats how I do it,think Evan has it down lots better than I do.

    Once you do it the first time its as easy as putting snot on a shirt sleeve.

    Evan had several really good posts on this subject,he also has a better way of adding the links to the post,I like listing the link to the album for multiple pics so people viewing can pick and choose what they want to see,and I only have to list the one link.

      Please don't shout, except when the extra EMPHASIS is really required. Now, for the last time, at least for a while, this is how to post a picture, at least a link to a picture. If you want to know how to make the actual picture show up in the post then email me.

      First go to and create an account. They will email you a confirmation link. Visit that link to activate your account.
      You will need to scan prints or load your digital images to your computer. They should be resized to about 800 pixels wide or less and saved as jpg files. When you save as a jpg file you usually have the option to save at different quality levels. Avoid using high quality level as the file size increases greatly.

      When you have your images ready, log on to your photobucket account. There you will see a page with a box in the middle that is labeled "Add Picture" with a button beside it labeled "Browse". The Browse button allows you to look on your computer for the image you wish to upload to photobucket. When you find it select it with the mouse and click the "Open" button. Then, on the photobucket page, check the "keep my picture names" box if you wish. Click the "Submit" button. This will upload your picture to your image gallery on photobucket.

      The picture will appear as a thumbnail and below the thumbnail is a link to the picture. Click in the link to place the cursor there and press CTRL and "A" at the same time to highlight the link. Then right click with the mouse and select "copy".

      Now you can create a new post in this forum and insert the link by right clicking and selecting "Paste".

      That's it. If you wish to create a link to the entire gallery then copy the link to photobucket (your gallery) in the web browser address bar and paste it into the posting.

      As an example here is a link to my gallery:

        OR, you use a ftp program to transfer the picture to your URL webspace, I have 10 megabytes of space.

        Then redirect the link to the picture, your computer goes there, loads it, comes back.

        But a lot of consumer URL's only allow so many hits on thier sites, they shut you off. DON't post anything that will overload your Internet provider.. a recent HSM post did pictures of his young college girl helper, he got complaints from his provider..

        The How-to direct to this site is posted on the help page. It uses brackets and "[img]picture location[/img]" to work..

          Is there any reason not to keep the answers to very common questions someplace convenient, like on the networking page? Instead of answering over and over again, you could just refer them there. Use an obvious title like this one, so they are easy to find.
