    Are you seeing something like this:

    If so, then you need the [img]and[/img] tags around it

    There are two problems:

    1. You're copying/pasting the HTML Code. You need to copy/paste the IMG Code.

    2. Your pictures are too big. They are 1024px 768px - try re-sizing them to 800px x 600px. You can do that easily in Photobucket using the Edit option.

    Good luck!

    How I would do it is to get your picture up on flickr and then right mouse click on it, then select properties.

    Where is says address URL: copy this information all of it from the start http all the way through to the .jpg
    it should look something like this http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4025/423 ... ae15c4.jpg

    When posting click Img above and paste the copied information between the img in brackets should look a bit like this

    [img]http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4025/4239048142_8b4dae15c4.jpg[img]


    Click preview to see if it has copied ok

    How do all you guys get really sharp large images which come in at under 50KB?

    Re: A guide to posting pictures

    As far as I can tell the major limit if hosting from somewhere like Photobucket is the image size in terms of pixels rather than disc space. I think it's 800 max either wide or high (which is a good call as on another board I frequent people keep putting up honking great images of over 2,000 pixels in width).

    Re: A guide to posting pictures

    A humble plead for increased picture sizes.

    I love posting photos but most of mine are already processed 800 or 1024 size with 8 pixels total of frame so basically none of my hundreds of pictures fits (no, I rarely view linked images myself). For new pics I can of course make a small version or a thumbnail for TZ-UK.

    Doesn't this BB software allow for horizontal scroll bar in individual messages so that it doesn't blow the whole page out of proportions?

    Re: A guide to posting pictures

    Hi All

    I wonder if someone could please offer some advice regarding the above. I have just uploaded a number of photos to Photobucket, unfortunately rather than showing the 3 or 4 file formats below each picture it's just showing 'Email & IM'. This only let's me post a link to the photo in TZ, what I was hoping to do was show the actual picture by copying the IMG code. I have trawled the menus in Photobucket, but cannot find a default setting which gives uploaded images an IMG code from outset - can anyone please help?

    Thanks.
