    Important notice regarding posting pictures

    Can you please restrict the width of any picture you post to not more than 500 pixels wide. Any wider than this and it affects the formatting of the page. Of course the formatting of the page is dependent on your screen resolution, 600 pixels is OK for 1024 x 768 but please no bigger.

    Thank you,

    Eddie

    You need to put the url between these img]. [img. My photobucket account does it automatically but they are on here somewhere?!!!!

    Photobucket is acting up. See the Friday thread today, everyone is hitting "third party hosting" limits and being asked to subscribe to a paid plan. Is imgur the next best thing?

    In a word Ö*YES.

    Imgur has little text boxes to copy and paste BBcode for a variety of types of forums and web sites. There's even a trick with the mobile app that if you copy the link to the image itself (tap photo to show full screen, the tap/hold to get "share/copy link" URL), then paste into a forum editor, if you append "l" or "m" to the filename, the image will be a "large" or "medium" version of your image, resized at the server. E.g. MYIMAGE.JPG becomes MYIMAGEl.jpg or MYIMAGEm.jpg.

    Photobucket can go bucket themselves. Recnetly when I click a URL link to view an image on the Photophucket site, I've gotten a popup ad that obscures the image, then redirect to a new page for another ad, and then a third popup ad appears on top of that. I never get to see the image! Their advertising has completely overwhelmed and ruined their primary purpose for existing. Screw them. I don't even click the links anymore.

    Thanks. I will try tomorrow. On windows the large adds have become annoying and copy paste always had issues for me as well.

    update: imgur works fine but has no grid view on the website or mobile app. my albums have quite some watch pics and I don't want to scroll through them in nearly full screen mode. Looking further.

    I will check again. Pretty sure I googled it and found that the feature was removed.

    Update: this is what I get. Max two pics in view allowing me to scroll. A pain with bigger albums.

    Nothing to do with Android. The way you are doing it looks really odd.

    Try just posting in plain text a full URL to the image and one of us can then show you how to use the IMG codes.

    1. Use the Tapatalk app (not the TZ-UK app). Pictures are easy, no need for a separate hosting service.

    or

    2. Use Imgur app - very easy to get a link which is easy to embed using {IMG}{/IMG} (only using [] instead of {} ).
