Newt asked me to write a tutorial for posting photos in our messages here, so.....

Here is the link to the CPYOA photobucket account:

http://s1125.photobucket.com/albums/l594/CPYOA/

To create your own and to post:

Here goes....

!.  Open a new window and type www.photobucket.com in your browser's go to bar.

You will see a version of this:



2.  In the upper right hand corner you will see the login section.  Login as shown as CPYOA ( in caps).  Use the password "compac19" in lowercase as the password and it will take you to this screen:



3.  Click on "upload a photo", and your computer's local directory will be shown on your monitor. Select as many photos as is appropriate, and click on upload.

After your files upload, you will see this screen:



4>  Most of this is self explanatory, but here you place the image into the proper album, name the photo, add a description  and so on.

NOW. To post the image to your post, select an image from the album you have uploaded your picture to and you will see this screen:



5.  Copy the image code to your post and you've completed the photo posting to the message board.

Questions?

Works like a charm. You can even do it from your boat!

Yes it does work well. Be aware though that I uploaded what appeared to be the first pic after this was set up yesterday and referenced it in a post in the classified section. Later more pics were added by someone and organized into albums. This broke the img link for the pic I used in the post yesterday resulting in a large box from photobucket indicating that the pic had been deleted or moved. I had to go back into photobucket and get the new img link and modify the post in order for the pic to show again.

Also, it took a few minutes to figure out how to get the new img link. Hovering the mouse pointer over the pic in the initial screen after logging in was no longer producing the pop up that allows one to get the new img link. I ended up having to click "All Albums" and then going to the "com-pac 16 pics" album where the pic had been moved to. Once there the pop up to get the new img link worked as expected.

Hopefully this will save someone some ag while trying to use photobucket.

Thanks for setting this up Tim.

Rich is correct - If you move a pic after you post it, you will break the link, so take care to place your image in the album you want it to be in.

Hope to see Bob23 try it.  I'll buy the beer to toast his success.

I guess that I am just suffering from domestic blindness but would someone please point me to instructions on how to upload a little avatar pic.  Is there a file size limit or file type.  I tried to upload a very small jpg and the system didn't like it = " The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved. "
Assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You cannot upload directly to our board. you must store you avatar on a photo hosting site, and then use the first option to store your avatar.

The first post in this thread is a primer to using the photobucket site to accomplish this, but others exist out there.

Try again!

If I wasn't so busy the rest of the year I'd fly out and buy a round. Maybe even work on a bottle of Glenfarclas.
