I have tried to get photos on here from photo bucket the way Gregg says to do it.

 

However when I go through the simple steps by clicking direct link on photo bucket. And that is simple.

 

Then back to the topic and click the image icon the Image Properties box pops up I paste Direct link in to it, and click OK then it will freeze.

Can't even cancel it.

I have to get off the page and start all over just to get back on the forum.

 

I did a test run on a Pro Board site and everything went fine.

 

I have been off line for a while maybe the MODS can check my account and see if something is keeping me from posting Photo's on here, or someone give me another way to do it.

 

I even tried to copy and paste the photo itself and that didn't work either.

I tried the Attach Files same problem/No results/freeze up.

 

Thank you and God Bless

Earl

Try using the " More Reply Options " and then follow Gregg's instructions .

Or it could be a compatibility problem ( most likely ) . Click the little blue box next to the refresh icon .

Earl, please click the below link, and see if clicking the Compatibility View option on IE fixes the problem: http://www.modelcars...81824&p=1059026

I have been trying for over an hour now. And can not get pics to post, share, link or nothing. They are too large to upload directly it seems. I up loaded them to Photobucket, and tried to link them. Nothing !! It keeps locking up after I paste the link in the box. Ive tried using the image and the lnk icons, nothing !! it freezes up everytime. I haven't posted in a while, so maybe things have changed ??

Pixresizer reduces them to whatever size you like. It's free. I use it all the time.

Try selecting the "Compatibility View" option (I think it's in the IE header bar?) and see if that helps or fixes the problem, Joe.

Casey,

 Ok, I got it part way, but I tried to link more pics. I tried to link all six from the album on Photobucket, it said it linked all 6 but I only see one on the post. Its under the pickups and vans  under glass section. 65 chevy weathered pickup. Is there an easy way to share more than one pic, without going back and forth between Photobucket and this forum ?

Looks like you got it to work, Joe, correct? I see six pics in the '65 Chevy topic you mentioned, and three in the S-15 post of yours, too.

 

I don't know of a way to copy multiple image links from a PB account, then paste them all in the body of a message in one step. I have always copied and pasted each link, one per image.

 

On the right side of your PB album you'll see "Links to share this album", then several different image link options. You can change which types of links are displayed, and I would suggest you change some of them. I don't think you will ever use the "Flash embed" nor "HTML embed" links, but you might want to keep the slideshow link.  I suggest you add the "IMG code", which is what you will use (and it will be much easier to) copy and paste images from your PB album to here.

 

To change your image link settings in your PB account, click on your user name at the top right corner ("kingiguana", I think yours is?), then select "User Settings", then look on the left side and you should see something like this:

 

 

Links
Show these share options for all of my albums.
Email & IM
Direct Link
HTML code
HTML thumb
IMG code
IMG thumb
Easy Linking Mode
Turn on easy linking mode  

 

You may never use any other types of links besides the IMG code link, but it's up to you which you want to use. I rarely use anything but the IMG code link, so even if you only select that link, I think you'll be OK for now. You can always add other links at any time. The "Easy Linking Mode" allows you to copy the link with one click of the mouse, so I'd recommend you select that, too.

 

Let me know if that works for you.  ^_^

I'm on Mac 10.4. Why can't I have access to any of the tools or smilies in the post boxes? Everything's grayed back and not usable. If this is not the right topic for this question, please tell me where it should go.

Didn't you mention a while ago you need to upgrade your Mac's OS? I'm on an older MacBook Pro running an outdated OS (though not sure which OS), and can no longer update Flash Player, but have no issues here on the forum.

 

Which web browser are you using? I think every person save for one who has had posting problems here and posted in this topic about it was using Internet Explorer.

I used to love Firefox, but they updated themselves to  a version that doesn't work with my system anymore and they have discontinued support of older versions (can't even download them). So I use Safari, which works just fine everywhere else.

To update my OS requires doubling my memory and updating my OS, which is a $200 job that I can't afford.

I use Safari

 

I see. I don't know much about Safari or how the updates are affected when using an older OS, but Google Chrome would be my suggestion for trouble free browsing.

Thanks, but it doesn't work with my old OS, nor do others. Just Safari.
