    Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    Am trying to post pictures from Photobucket using the paste icon. When I hit the icon, it says "Paste as plain text". I can't seem to find the procedure for post as photograph. Anyone who is far less technical challenged than me have any clues? Thanks very much.

    Right above the compose box you see icons to switch to bold fonts, increase font size, insert a hyperlink, and paste an image. The image icon looks like a picture frame, I guess. Hover over each icon and it will tell you what it does. When you click it, a popup window appears. Select "from URL", paste the address in, and uncheck the "Retrieve remote file and reference locally" box lest you use up your allotment of space too fast.

    Alternately, you can type (close up the spaces) [ img ] before the URL and [ / img ] after it.

    Re: Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    Tried both, and still only text appears, not photo. The photo I want to paste is also on my computer. I tried that, using the paste icon, and got a message saying I used up too much space. What am I missing?

    You used up your allotment of space posting the pictures of your stains.

    You want the direct link, not all the mumbo-jumbo they put along with it. The file name should start with http and end with .jpg

    Try just pasting the URL and let us look at it and see if we can make it an image.

    Copy the IMG code to the right of the pic in Photobucket and paste it in your post. Don't use any of the icons in TFP. Just a straight paste.

    Re: Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    Many thanks for your input. OK; I hit IMG on photobucket; yellow sign indicated "copied"; but I don't know how to paste it my TFP post. Is there an additional step I need to take on the Photobucket site? Is there anything I need to do on the TFP site to paste it?

    I think I've got it. Many, many thanks to all of you for having the patience to deal with one who is severely technologically challenged.

    Re: Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    But I've another question about attachments to posts on this forum. Is there a way to delete attachments?

    Yes, but why? Then your old threads will not make sense to anyone that looks at it in the future.

    Re: Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    Question. Why use photobucket? It seems to me it's easier to skip photobucket and just upload straight from your PC or tablet. That's what I do. I've never used photobucket.

    Re: Pasting photographs from Photobucket

    Good point jblizzle; hadn't considered that perspective. To kk_isme: I tried attaching direct from my PC recently, but got a message about having used up the allotted space for attachments to a post I made last year. It appears that once you've used whatever space is allowed for attachments, that's it; you can't attach anything anymore, which creates the need to use another source, like photobucket.

    Because if you are not a supporter, you have very little storage space at TFP.

    Although it would be best if everyone was a supporter and stored the pictures locally, so links may not get broken.
