It is one of the many photos taken on the 2007 trip, this one really to have the sign changed (which I managed).
You can find more photos in the link below.

In 59 days we are flying out again, will be in KTP from the 16th of December.

We can wave at each other as we'll pass each other. We will be coming from Augrabies. ;)
Very early start there though....

Whether I like it or not, the new, improved :hmz: photobucket has arrived. I don't like it :evil: It is far too fiddly and for someone like myself who keeps facebook to a minimum.. I am finding it a nuisance.

My problem is that all my newer images are not able to be posted onto the Sanparks site. They are too big. I am not sure how to change the settings. I tried and seemed to make things worse.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I am not adverse to change.... but I am hating this new photobucket.

Hi M.M,
Okie said on page 1 that it gives an option to change back to previous version which he did!

Hi MM,

It's actually not that difficult.

After uploading your photo, click on it to view that photo only.

At the top there is a drop down button options.

When you click on it, choose edit. It's third from the top. It will then open the photo in a new page.

At the top there is a row of edit tools.

Sixth from the left is resize Click on that.

You'll now see sizes at the top. Choose 640 X 480, depending on whether your photo is landscape or portrait for the width and the height. You'll see that when you type in one of the figures the other will change automatic.

To the right of the sizes is a button Apply. Click on it.

Now you get an option save and beneath that Replace original

Please remember to click the replace button or you'll end up with two photos in the library and you won't know which one is the smaller one.

It will give you a message it is replacing the photo.

Then you'll end up where you should find all very familiar. Just click on the IMG code and paste on the Forum.

It does sometime not give the "old" copied message. If that happens, when you click on IMG Code and it is highlighted, just right click and copy and then do the paste thing on the Forum.

Hope this is of help.

I really struggled with Photobucket a few weeks ago when I started doing my trip report.

So I switched over to my flickr account. Much easier to use and without the glitches I was having with Photobucket, so I use the flickr account now.

Sadly, the option no longer exists. I did change back, but now you have to take it or leave it.

Lion Queen, thank you, I will try. :thumbs_up:

Sorry guys, I didn't realise the Photobucket site had changed. I'll try to update the tutorial this week (no promises :lol: ).

Photobucket is driving me up the walls! I have the same problem as MM - I edit the photo's, re-size and then when I want to post on the Forum it still says the photo's are to big! The strange thing is this only happens when one ticks the box the says to replace the original pic. If you only say "save" everything is fine! :wall: :wall:

That's why I prefer to resize my pictures on picture manager before I put it on Photobucket Naomi c!

Have a look Here. :thumbs_up:

You could always just swap to Flickr, their resizing works perfectly and they now give 1TB storage space :twisted:
