This is for all the new, or more seasoned people that aren't very computer literate. Instead of attaching photos, you can include them in your post. Heres how.

First, you need to locate the USB ports on your computer, if you have a desktop there should be a few in the front and back, laptops are on the side or back.

Plug your camera in, assuming that all of you know how to do it.

Open your My Computer, and look for your camera, it would be under cameras and scanners for XP, external devices for 2000. Not sure for Vista.

Cameras usually have folders on them, so open these folders and find your pictures, select the ones you want ( hold the Ctrl key and click on each one you want) Then copy them ( Ctrl C)

then open your My pictures folder, and paste them in that folder (or whatever folder you want).

then open your photobucket account and click on albums.

you can create a folder for your pics

Slide5.jpg

Or you can load them right there by clicking the choose files button.

Slide6.jpg

A window pops up, usually gos to your My pictures folder, find your folder where your pics are.

Slide7.jpg

You can upload a single picture.

Slide8.jpg

or you can select a few pictures, by holding the Ctrl Key and left clicking on the picture.

Slide9.jpg

or if you wan to select all, you can either do Ctrl A or click on the first pic, hold the shift key while clicking on the last picture.

It will load your picture, then it will have 4 lines underrneath, LEFT click on the 4th line of text, it will copy itself.

Ok, I got a few more helpful hints for everyone. If you have an IMG thumb instead of IMG code and you acutally want the larger picture like this:

Giugiaro_Mustang_Concept_news_image.jpg

or a Thumb like this:

th_2007-chevrolet-camaro-concept-2.jpg

Then under one of your pictures in your album there is a link code options link

Slide14.jpg

You can actually make it to where either the Thumb, light blue square, or the IMG Code, red square, as an option

Slide15.jpg

Unless you actually use any of the other options. Me, I am gonna make it my only option because I just found it :(
