    So I tried the fight club this morning. I had everything going so good. I got some great shots. Then I had to upload to the thread. Nothing.... only a bunch of coded mess. I tried flickr and photobucket. I did all combinations I could. I copied and pasted for about an hour but I couldn't get any pictures to come up.

    I'm really pissed now :( I wish someone could tell me how to do this. I prefer photobucket but if someone could please tell me how to load pictures to this site I'd be so happy. I've done it before and I can't understand why I can't do it today.

    Thanks,
    Susan

    odd - you have to hover over the image in your photobucket account for the codes to show - then you copy the last one (remember you click once which should select the code in blue then press ctrl and C on your keyboard to copy)
    jump into TFF and paste in the data

    I had problems with Flickr and use Photobucket pretty much exclusively now. Upload your images to Photobucket and once you have saved the images, hover your mouse over the image. A dropdown will display. Select the IMG Code. Copy (Crtl C) that line, go to your reply thread on TPF and paste (Ctrl V). Make sure [​IMG] begins and ends the URL filename. There's a couple of stickys... i think in the Beginners gallery. have a look around.

    Further I don't advocate the use of photobucket for photographers anymore in light of this:
    http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/...3635-photobucket-terms-conditions-change.html

    try to get flickr to work if you can. With a flickr photo you have to select the photo - then above the photo in its window there should be an option for "all sizes" click that to get taken to a window where you select the size you want. Click on the size then when it loads scroll down and there are 2 blocks of text - copy the last and then paste that into a thread putting:
    at either end of the copied text to show the image

    thanks there are instructions as stickies. I've been working on it for a long time now. I just feel so stupid, it's very frustrating.

    Wow, I can't believe what I've done. My copy and paste command wasn't working properly this whole time. I'm so grateful that it wasn't my stupidity all along. Everytime I hit copy it never copied. I finally noticed when the line had flickr on it when I know I copied from photobucket.

    thanks for all your help guys. :)

    this is exactly why i created the thread on "The Idiots Guide to Posting Pictures".... sorry you didn't see that at the top of the page when you were trying.. but I'm glad you figured it out.

    thank you for the kind words
