I see so many folks having so many problems trying to post pictures in their posts, it really makes me wonder if I am missing something and wondering what I am doing wrong. I always use the picture posting app that is explained in the sticky for this forum, and it works every time, without having to upload anything to a third party site. Just select the picture on my computer, and then copy and paste the link it gives me. Works every time! Am I doing something wrong, and just don't know how difficult it should be??

Do you have copies on you local computer?? or is everything out in the Photobucket cloud?? Can you download back to you local system from PB?

Just for clarity, the webapp uploads to imgur.com photo hosting site without having to go through their homepage. It uses IMGUR developer API, allowing direct access to their hosting servers.

The main problem is that I don't know enough about computers to solve my photo-related problems, and it has cost me a lot of enjoyment. The photos I need to access number over 900 and they are all "stuck" in photobucket, and all in one album and all in slide show mode. It used to be so easy to single any of them out, and insert into a post (in on of several forums, RV.net and fishing and flying and e-mail). But, now photobucket will only allow me to use all of them at once, or nothing.
I'm at the end of my rope, and it looks like I need to go meet with a computor tech who did my last computor work (in San Antonio). On the phone, he told me that he could probably do something.
People here have tried to help me, but the problem is that I'm not computor savy. Thanks

Imgur is a breath of fresh air after using the spam filled, slow responding PB (who BTW, lost all of my pics and just said "Sorry, it happens sometimes..).

Hats off to 1492 for creating the great page to provide automatic resizing, storage and linking to Imgur.

Photobucket is a big disappointment. I never trusted it for any picture not backed up on my devices.

You cannot link to a photo from your personal computer. It has to be hosted on a webserver.

Try dragging your photo into this webpage, and copy&paste the link provided in your post? It does all the work of uploading your photo to an image hosting service, and returns a link which is tailored to forum requirements.
