Default How To Post Pictures Using Photobucket

Was looking through the forum, and thought it'll be good to have step by step guide for photo posting.

Using photobucket to store and display your pics will help reduce the usage on AF's server space, and it's more or less the same for other forums too!

Step 1 :

Go www.photobucket.com to create an acc. Click on the Join Now tab



Step 2 :


FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS TO REG ACC

Step 3 :


Upload your pics! U can hold the CTRL key on your keyboard to choose multiple pictures at a shot




Step 4 :


You might wish to tag or name your pictures, den press RETURN TO ALBUM when done





There has been slight changes to photobucket over the years.

Move your cursor over the pic to see the links.

Copy the IMG CODE (keyboard shortcut is CTRL + C)



Step 6 :


Paste the whole chunk in AF post (Keyboard shortcut is CTRL + V)

You should see this

You may wish to set the album settings to Private, so that when people try to view the pics in your acc, they require a password.

I Personally set it as such, so I wun have ALL my pics pte or otherwise displayed

1st - Click on Account Settings



Next, scroll down and change the setting to PRIVATE (Default is Public, anyone can just go see your pics in your album)




To see the diff,
http://i621.photobucket.com/albums/tt296/iamsg <---- Public acc


http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a270/satan_gal <--- Pte acc

This is not a must do step.

HOWEVER.. there are some who would prefer their privacy while sharing pics.

one reason i prefer photobucket to imageshack is photobucket have the option 2 select the size u may wish to condense the pic to

Afterwhich, the BIG BIG picture display in forum, and no linking

in fact, so long as u can find the URL of any pic online, you can also choose the add image by adding

[img]Your Url Here[/img]
