Title: Photobucket and TAC...How to post pictures.
Post by: BAN ONE on February 18, 2007, 01:56:22 PM
Here is a small tutorial for posting pictures here on TAC. There are many image sharing hosts out there but for this tutorial example, I will be using Photobucket. It is easy and free to use with storage capabilities up to 1 Gb without upgrading.  
First off, goto www.photobucket.com and register.

Once you have register, you will come up with a screen similar to this one.

CREATING SUB-ALBUMS
Next step is to create a sub album.

This will keep all your related pictures together within their folders. Just remember to be in that album when you upload the pictures to Photobucket or you will have to move them over afterwards. Also, any pictures you move say down the road from one album to another breaks the link and the pictures will not show up at any of the sites you have posted them.


Here I am naming this album POSTING PICTURES.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket1.jpg)


Once you have created your sub album, you must click on it to add or view pictures within that folder.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket2rev.jpg)


Your sub album should come up next to your name.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket3aa.jpg)


Now that we have created a sub album, it is time to upload some pictures from your computer. Click the browse button to open a window for finding your pictures.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket4.jpg)


Your screen should now show this after hitting the open button.
 
(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket5.jpg)


When you are done finding all the pictures, you are ready to upload them to Photobucket.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket6.jpg)

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket7.jpg)


Photobucket will notify you when all your pictures have been uploaded. Depending on your server and amount of pictures, this may take from a few seconds to a few minutes.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket8.jpg)


If you scroll down, you will see your pictures within the album.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket9.jpg)


Now that Photobucket has your pictures, you are ready to add them to your post. You will need to have two windows open for this.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket10.jpg)


Next, within your post, right click and paste the link.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket11tac.jpg)


If you did it right, you should see this within your post (before previewing or viewing after posting).

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket12tac.jpg)


Add any other additional pictures in the same fashion as the first one. Make sure you drop a line or two before adding any additional pictures...otherwise your pictures will be side by side.

(http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b159/BAN_ONE/Posting%20pictures/startphotobucket13tac.jpg)


When you preview or view your posted topic afterwards, your pictures will magically appear   :wink: .

That is all there is to it. Have fun and lets see them pictures  .

It's a problem that pops up now and then with the forum itself, especially when trying to post more than one picture in a post or a large pic.  Simply click "back" on your browser and then hit "Submit post" again.

Photobucket has slightly changed the way to "copy & paste" photos. There is now a gear in the upper right hand corner of your picture when you place your cursor on the pic. If you hover over the gear a window opens with options. Select "share", which opens another window with three tabs. Select the "links" tab and then click on the hyperlink under  "IMG code".

Test:

It works!

Or just leave Photobucket like I did after being with them since 2004, and go to a user-friendly host like Flickr  :lol:

I am so lucky I understand cars better then computers,  Well, even trying to get new pics of TA even on profile pic to show you something is not going to happen today,, it's too big or something,, but at first if you don't succeed try and try again,, Im getting closer, got a photo bucket , just cant figure how to keep two places open at the same time,, I know my computer will do it,, sucks  being illiterate, I will get this,, pics aren't that great anyway but Im proud of my 79 TATA 4 speed 400 car, just stretching my fingers in frustration,, yep, I join the growing crowd of the beaten down by modern technology, good god I hope I get better with computers, and I plan of setting up my own fuel injected computer operated engine one day,, look out

Same here, done with photobucket. i posted here in the past but members could see my whole set of pictures at that site. Can anyone update the picture posting process? I belong to other forums that are a cinch to upload and post pictures, this site is quite a bit more difficult.  Are there any options other than photobucket? i see photos from that site "expire" on forums now-a-days.  Thanks in advance

TAC doesn't support uploading pics to it....we don't have the bandwidth available to host pics.
Use Flickr, or similar....but not Photobucket (unless you like paying huge amounts for the priviledge), to store your photos, then use that service's linking function to link your pics into your posts here.
On Flickr, when you're displaying the pic, there is a an arrow shaped icon to the lower right side of the pic....that takes you to a list of links which will put your pic into a post on different boards...Facebook, Bulletin Boards etc.....use the BB link and click on it it to copy and paste the link.

Hope this helps.

For anybody using google chrome, you can download the "Photobucket Hotlink Fix"
plugin/addon and it will fix all the broken links on the forums.

I recently switched from PB to Flicker and had to go back and re-post all my pics. Flicker is so much easier, just copy and paste the link, and it's free!

Click on the photo you want to share, then click on the "share" arrow in the bottom right corner. It opens another window then click on "BBCode" in the top menu bar and the link will pop up. Copy it and paste it in your post.

HELP! I need to post photos for a question about the factory striping in '79. Is there a simple way? Photobucket refuses to cooperate! Thanks!

It doesn’t have to be photobucket, but it will have to be some third-party host site for pictures.

Can we use Google Photos to host and link our pictures?  Sorry - new to the site and don't have a Flickr or Photobucket account.  Thought if I could my current Google Photos account, it would be easier.

I would think so.  I have a Google photo account but I’ve never linked pics from it here.  I expect it should work though.
