Default Why can't I post pics?

So I've been working all afternoon, trying everything, jpeg to GIF, img, photo, photobucket, etc, etc, etc, and all I get is the stupid thing that is supposed to represent an image. Any help? Mac OS10.4 Tiger with latest updates. Any help would be appreciated.

Wheel or not you should be able to copy and post the pic from photobucket. Correct?

Theoretically. I'll give this a try:


That was done with both [ img] and [ photo], ignore the spaces and of course the closing tag. The pic in my sig was what I was trying to upload.

You still don't need a wheel, open a photobucket acct copy the IMG code and paste it in your post or sig line thats it

Domino,
I have a Photobucket account, so I did just as you said. Copied the IMG link, pasted it in my sig, and, as you can see, I get a "clickable" link. What's the deal? I want a pic!

OK, do this:


[img] YOUR URL GOES HERE [/img]



There, that should help.

OK... Look at what is RIGHT BELOW this typing .......

http://images.radamesaguayo.com/prod...ages/10779.gif

That is the link for the picture that is below ....



WITHOUT TYPING ANY SPACES, type what is typed below ...

[ i m g ]

right after that, with NO spaces, PASTE the link for your photo

AFTER you paste the link for your photo, WITH NO SPACES, type what is typed below

[ / i m g ]

Notice the "forward slash" in the second " [ i m g ]

SO, Type it JUST LIKE THIS with NO Spaces

[ i m g ] your photos link pasted here [ / i m g ]

and your photo will appear.....

There is something WRONG with the "link" you are trying to post ...... the link I just coppied from your "red X" is as follows....

http://s285.photobucket.com/albums/l...wĄt=3532-1.jpg

And when I put it between the [ i m g ] .... I get the same "red X" ..... you are grabbing the wrong "link" to the photo you are trying to post .....

Here is your photo link between the [ i m g ] as I post it ....



You need to have thee correct photo link or its not going to work ....

Either will work. Please resize the giant photos if your gonna use it in a signature file.


Psssst: here, I resized it for you. Better save it to your computer because I'm gonna delete it from my album in a day or so:

Tony,
That would be the one. I have it in Photobucket as a jpeg and a GIF. I can post it as a link and it opens up. What's the deal? Ludicrous, chime in if you want. I'm sorry, I feel like such a moron here. Jawz would love this!

COPY what is typed below:


[ img ]http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/ll41/seabob/3532-1.jpg?t=1233970330[ /img ]


NOTICE the spaces ... there are 2 spaces in the FIRST "img" and 2 spaces in the last "img"

After you PASTE the link into your signature, remove the 4 spaces and save it and your pic will appear in your signature.....

Tony,
Seems when I would open the pic in photobucket, it would include "view=current=" in the url. I took that out, and viola, PIC!

Thanks for all your help. Didn't realize it was photobucket that was screwing me up! I'm sure there is more to it, but...I'll learn.

If I need your help again, I will be sure to call.

Bob
