Hi Tentdweller,

Have you had a look at this topic??

How to host photos

If you have and it still does not make any sense, please ask again or say which part you don't understand and we'll lend a helping hand.

Ok TD now when you have photobucket on and you go to your library and click on a photo. It has a block on the right hand side. Image links. You just click on the direct link and it copies instantly! Then you go to your post-click the image button so the following show '[ img] [img]' and then you click in the middle paste :thumbs_up:
It should work then :D

From Photobucket it's even easier as it puts the tags around it for you. Just click on the IMG Code in the Image Links and then paste into your post:

Saraf, thank you very much :thumbs_up:

The new format threw me completely. I do think that these were a few teething issues. I had to re-size all my new pics and this is no longer needed.

I still prefer the old format, but I see that I am experiencing fewer glitches than earlier.
