  •  When you have the picture displayed in (6+ / 0-)

    photobucket there should be a box in the lower right hand part of the screen, with four lines of options.

    I always choose the one that says "copy HTML code."

    Then I paste that directly in the post or comment.  I don't try to use that photo url thingy.  Just paste the HTML code in that third box direclty in the text box.

    Then if you need to resize it you can add width="400" up to a max of around  649 I think.  And, I sometimes use the align="right" or left and width of 300 to put a photo on half the screen with text on the other.

    •  A problem I ran into (5+ / 0-)

      was that it wouldn't let me copy the html code. When I click on the box in order to scroll along the lenght of the code and copy it, it's like there's no box there. I can't see or reach the whole code.

      I don't know if that was a problem with my browser interface, or what. Since I couldn't copy the html code, I did the right-click and just tried to paste the url into dkos's "link image" box instead. You think that was where the trouble occurred?

      I wonder if I tried some other hosting site if I might have better luck with the html code.

      •  I've used the Photobucket website for years with (4+ / 0-)

        no problems.

        There should be a first column label tag that allows you to copy the whole HTML string even if you can not see it.

        Yes, I think that's where the trouble is starting. I don't think just clicking on the picture will work.

        If you have a PC you can right click just before a photo in someone else's post and then select "Sourcecode" to see the correct HTML code to put around the URL location.

        But, you should be able to get that code in one of two ways. Either clicking on the "Copy HTML" button, or positioning the cursor in the leftmost part of the following box with the code, and then depressing your left mouse button and sliding it to the right, while still holding the mouse button down, and then selecting copy or "control C." That should copy the HTML code all the way across the box even if you can not see it.

        Do you by any chance have a browser security add on that prevents sites from running scripts? I believe you need Java scripts activated to correctly use the Photobucket site.

        I installed a Firefox browser recommended by Cotterperson, which prevents Photobucket from working unless I temporarily allow it to run scripts.  

        I hope this helps.  There is a helpdesk around here someplace that if usually pretty helpful.

          may be where the problem is. I do have Firefox. They disabled enabling scripts on this version (and I can't seem to get rid of it) but I can try another browser. Thanks!
