Link to Photobucket???

Recommended Posts

How do you link to Photobucket so that the photo automatically appears in the topic, just like it would if it was stored here at MCM? (I've been able to figure out everything else, but this one has me stumped...)

There are several ways but this one always works.

You'll have to have p-bucket AND the MCM forum thread you want to put the photo in open in two browser windows simultaneously.

1) Bring up p-bucket and open the photo you want to load into your thread on the MCM forum. 

2) On the right side there's a menu called "share links". Left-click on the "IMG" one. It will momentarily turn yellow, to let you know it's been copied. (Sometimes depending on your browser, who's been diddling with the p-bucket functionality, or the phase of the moon, you won't get the yellow flash. In that case you MAY have to right-click on the "IMG" address and copy it).

3) Go back to your thread page. Position the cursor where you want the photo to appear, and press "Ctrl-v" ("paste"). The photo address will come up in the thread window.

4) When you hit "post", the photo will appear.

OR.... If you're looking at thumbnails in a particular album, hover your cursor over the photo you want to put on MCM. 

3 little white bars come up in the lower left corner of the thumbnail.

Hover over the bars and another menu opens above them in the thumb.

Left-click "share links"

A big white box will drop down with another menu on the right.

Left-click the "IMG" choice, which will flash yellow as above.

Same steps 3 and 4 as described above.

Thanks Ace! It was the "IMG" option that was not showing - I found the "options" button and it's working great!
