I've recently received a few messages where members were having a hard time figuring out how to post pictures here at LSP. This little tutorial focuses on how to use Photobucket to post images here. There are many other image hosting websites that operate in a similar manner that will work just as well as Photobucket.
First you need to open an account on Photobucket. The site is free. All you need to do is set up an account with a user name and password. The site's directions are pretty straight forward so I won't elaborate on how to establish an account. Here is a link to the site:
Once you are set up with an account you need to log on. Once logged on you can start uploading your pictures to the site by clicking the "upload now" button.
Then click the "select photos and videos" button.
A window will open that will allow you to select the directory on your computer where you store your photos. Select the photo or photos you wish to upload. Note as soon as you click on a photo it will automatically upload. To select multiple photos highlight them by holding down the control key and click on all the photos you wish to upload. They will highlight in blue as you select them. Once all are selected click the "open" button and they will start to upload.
You will then get a window that pops up saying "upload complete", click the "save and continue to my album" button.
You should now see the photo(s) you uploaded in your album.
You are now ready to post the pictures you selected here on LSP.
If you run your mouse over each photo a pop up will show up under each one. Click on the bottom most box labeled IMG Code. It will change to say "copied" for a flash after you click on it.
Go to your post here at LSP, right click on your mouse and paste what you have copied into you post.
Your image should now show up when you post your topic.
Note that if you delete the picture in photobucket you loose the link here. Your post here at LSP will end up looking like this afterward.
Hopefully this little "how to" helps those who have had difficulty posting pictures here at LSP.
