So, I had someone ask me via private message how to upload to Photobucket. I thought I would share for others who don't know how to do it.

It is incredibly easy, its free, and it works good for hosting images.

http://www.photobucket.com

First things first, this is the front page:

http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_01Jun-1.jpg

up at the top you will see login information. Log in here if you already have an account.

http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_02Jun.jpg

In a few seconds you should see this
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_03Jun.jpg

Once logged in you will see this page:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_04Jun.jpg

click the browse button and up will appear a box so you can select the photo(s) that you wish to upload
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_05Jun.jpg

a closer look:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_06Jun.jpg

select as many images as you want, if you need more, click the "Add more" button
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_07Jun.jpg

http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_08Jun.jpg

Click upload... You should see this as it progresses
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_10Jun.jpg

after they have uploaded you will get this message at the top
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_11Jun.jpg

http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_12Jun.jpg

Now, your photos will appear at the bottom, like this:

http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_13Jun.jpg

A closer look:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_14Jun.jpg

for posting in these forums you will use the Img code:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_15Jun.jpg

click it once and it will copy
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_16Jun.jpg

a little known secret is that you can select multiple photos at once and have it generate code at one time. Just check each individual photo:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_17Jun.jpg

and at the bottom click "Generate HTML and IMG code"
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_18Jun.jpg

You should see this:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_19Jun.jpg

a closer look at the section you want:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_20Jun.jpg

click once to copy:
http://i125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/nwafan20/ScreenHunter_21Jun.jpg

now go to your favorite forum (personally, mine is nycaviation.com ;)) and paste it:

Wow. That's very good and in-depth. Mind if I shrink some of those down and use it for the site?

This is a test for Mike to show how his photos come out since he can't figure it out.

All I did was take the links you sent me and I pasted them directly in this thread, nothing different

Greetings,

OK! ... OKAY!! ... O-K-A-Y!!! ... you remember the one about the soft drink entrepreneur who came s-o-o-o-o close to undying fame ... but stopped just one step short of success. His proposed soft drink? You guessed it ... 6-UP!

From the get-go ... I succeeded in selecting and copying multiple images into a forum message. Given the instructions provided ... any fool could have done that! But I stopped there ... expecting to see the images right then ... right there ... in said forum message.

On the verge of dropping PhotoBucket altogether ... I finally said "Oh ... what the hell" ... and sent the damn message as a last resort! HELLO??? And the rest is history.

A first precept in providing instructional guidelines to first-time users ... who just may be "newer than thou" to all this ... is: - Assume ... nothing!

In this case ... no one said: - THEN YOU SEND THE MESSAGE TO ACTIVATE AND SEE THE IMAGES IN THE CONTEXT OF THE MESSAGE! Too obvious even to mention? Think again. Assume ... nothing!

Be advised ... a sustained tsunami of PhotoBucket-based photo images will soon be descending on certain selected NYCAviation forums in your neighborhood. Stay tuned.

Mike (shamrock838)

Just remember to title the threads with warnings (MANY PHOTOS, 56k=NO, etc, etc)...
