Quick guide for using Photobucket to add pictures to your content

Recommended Posts

First off you will need a Photobucket account.

 

http://photobucket.com/

 

Once your account is activated, you must first upload any picture you want to share.

 

 

 

Uploading to Photobucket

 

 

 

Firstly, click on the green 'Upload' button which is located at the top of the page towards the centre of the screen:

 

pbt.jpg

 

This will then take you to the next screen:

 

pbt1.jpg

 

Hit the green 'select photos & videos button in the centre, then chose the content you wish to upload from your PC:

 

pbt2.jpg

 

If you want to upload more than one image you can either hold down the CTRL key and select multiple images, or you can use Photobucket's bulk uploader which is available with an option on the screen

 

 

 

Adding images from Photobucket to the forum

 

 

Find the image you wish to display on the forum in the relevant album of your photobucket account.

 

Either hover your cursor over the thumbnail for the picture you want to put up until this box appears, then left click on the link I've highlighted. It will automatically copy it:

 

pb1-1.jpg

 

Or alternatively, left click on the thumbnail, then on the next screen right click the bottom option to copy it:

 

pb2.jpg

 

In both cases, come back to the thread you want to put the picture on, right click on the text entry area and choose 'paste' from the option box that appears or the "ctrl" & "v" keys together:

 

pb3.jpg

 

I find this easiest to do by having multiple browser tabs open.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Privacy settings

 

 

I would personally advise altering the default settings on your Photobucket account so that your albums are all private. The option for this can be found if you hover over your Photobucket username and by clicking: 'Account settings' then by choosing the 'Privacy' tab. You'll still be able to share the images you wish to, but your images will not appear to those using search engines to search for images on the web.

You can also upload from your iPhone/iPad all you need to do is download the free photo bucket app and it's pretty much the same as online aswell as you can upload and put pics from your phone
