Hi Scotsman

  1. Copy your url from photobucket
  2. Click the Image button, next to the camera icon
  3. Paste in the url and click on the form away from the url box
  4. Wait for the preview to appear.
  5. To make sure the photo displays at the correct size, check that the lock icon is closed, and delete the width and heigh properties. (This is only for externally hosted photos, not from your Stamp mag albums
  6. Press Ok.

You will see the photo in your post, so carry on typing your message.

Hi again Scotsman

is this the text you copied from photobucket?

[IMG]http://i292.photobucket.com/albums/mm23/ScotsmanAbroad/my%20stampboard/comedy/YbAlgeriastamps2.jpg[/IMG]

 

If so, you need the bit from http:// to .jpg, without the [IMG] [/IMG] tags

eg

When I paste the URL and click on the form, all I get is a red square with a white X

Hi again Scotsman

Which browser are you using, and are you using Windows or a Mac? It shouldn't make any difference, but I can't reproduce your problem.

The red square with an x indicates that your photo isn't found, which would suggest that the url that you are pasting is not quite right.

Please could you paste the url that you just used?

Thanks

Katy

Well almost, but the shape is a bit odd

Aha, I didn't clear the boxes! This time

That's great, you just need to fix the size of the photo now.

Any photos from albums are automatically resized, but external ones need adjusting. I have found that if you make sure the lock is locked, and delete the width and height properties, the photo is resized correctly

Ahoy Scotsmanabroad and greetings from Dutchmaninscotland! What I found out is that unlike in some other forums you click on the Direct Link link and not the IMG Code link in Photobucket. That way you don't have to delete any IMG bits 'coz there aren't any.

For what it's worth...
