1) Bring up the page with the picture you want


2) Highlight and copy the text next to "Img"


3) In the post place your cursor where you want the picture to be and paste the link in. You do not need to use the IMG button since Photobucket put in the and [ /IMG] for you.

Well, I'm still having problems trying to change my avatar and get my personal photo on. Went to Photobucket and THINK I got a pic of both Maggie and Molly on but after boo-koo tries to change my avatar and put a personal photo on, I'm giving up for tonight. I thought it was supposed to be EASIER now?????? Maybe it's just "me"..but I'm following all the directions and what do I get? A blank page..no changes. Doesn't make sense to me. I'll try another day....maybe it's just this computer. I'll try on my one at work tomorrow.
Right now, I'm "bug-eyed" from TRYING! GRRRRRRRRR

Maggie's Mom: Now that you're an SMC member, you don't need Photobucket.
You can post directly from your computer. Click on Browse under
the posting box and the find the photo in your computer and click
"Add the attachment" and then scroll down a little and the photo
will be listed and click "add in to post".

You do need Photobucket for your siggy photo though.

And most importantly.... your new baby is totally adorable!!!!

Thank you! We think she's precious, too, and that's why we wanted to get a few good pics of her on my profile, etc. I thought as a member it would that be easy, too....I did the "Browse"..Picked out a picture, double clicked and then I think it was "submit" what I clicked to get the avatar and personal photo on. Neither worked. I had to use the photo bucket to get my new signature on and look how big it is! My goodness...that is way too big and I don't know how to reduce it! It takes up the entire page!! LOL....


To say the least, I'm frustrated.
Maybe it's just "me" but I think I'm doing everything right. Maybe it's just not a good charma for me tonight..haha..(No, I don't believe in those things) but I'm almost hitting zero tonight so I guess I'm hitting the sack and will try again tomorrow from my work computer.


If you have any idea how I can make my signature a bit smaller, I would appreciate that, too!!


What else can I say? GRRRRRRR

You have to have your photo hosted for your signature. All the others can come directly from your computer.I'll reduce this one for you and PM it to you. Then just upload it to Photobucket, etc.

Thank you..but I did figure out my Signature and Avatar I guess..I got both my Photobucket and yet my signature is still huge. I wonder if Joe will even allow it. I don't want it to be that big at all.....

When you say all you have to do is click on attach and you get your pics.......I've tried and tried....just think it shouldn't be this hard or can I be this dumb..haha


Also..when I click on Add this attachment, the Add Reply disappears and all I can see is "Preview Post"..when I click, I get nothing and then my post does NOT appear. Talk about frustrating....

I wish I knew how to reduce the size of my signature picture. I changed it in Photobucket, but I can't seem to make it smaller in my signature. How do you do that?

If you made it smaller in Photobucket be sure and use that URL for your siggy. I don't use Photobucket but I imagine that the new URL will have the word "copy" in it. Replace the new URL for the former one in the siggy box. I hope that makes sense! Just PM me if I can help......

hiya how do you bring up the page with the pic on.. sorry for being a ditz :wub:[/B]
I'm not sure what you mean either - but .... you might mean how do you get to where your pictures are at??

You need to upload your pictures to Photobucket - or similar (I use ImageCave)

Is that what you mean? Once your pictures are uploaded to a 'host' like Photobucket or ImageCave, you can then follow the instructions here on the 1st page.

Hope that helps :)

www.imagecave.com

and I don't use Photobucket, but I'm guessing it might be: www.photobucket.com ?? I think they are both free - I know ImageCave is anyways.

You are not alone...I have never encountered anything as difficult as this site is when it comes to updating avatars, signatures post & the likes. It's way to difficult...either that or way over my head too!
