Post How to host and post pictures for free!!
In order to curb all the questions of the most frequent pm I receive in the black hole I call an Inbox, here is the definitive easy to understand guide on how to host pictures for free and then post them on the website. I've added commentary...if you have any questions, feel free to post up. If it works for you, post up so others can see. If you find anything confusing, let me know and I'll correct the slideshow....now on with the tutorial:

Just follow the green arrows/boxes on the pictures and read the step instructions, it's super easy...

---- Step 1

Goto http://www.photobucket.com/, easy enough. If you dont have an account setup, then up for one for free. If you have one, proceed onward.







---- Step 2

Type in the following info that corresponds to the green arrows, from top to bottom you will need your Username, Password, Click Remember Me if you want to save your login (optional), and then click the Login button and your signed into your account.







---- Step 3

The default is to upload one pic, meaning you copy a pic from your computer machine to the photobucket directory/album so it can be hosted. The top arrow shows the Browse button, click on it and choose the pic you want to upload. Then click the Submit button (bottom arrow) and it will upload the pic to your photobucket album.

TIP: Underneath that bottom green arrow, there is a drop down menu box that allows you to choose "Submit Multiple Pictures" which makes it handy to upload more than one pic at the same time. The maximum here is 19, so anything more means you have to do them all with 19 increments. If you want to upload 5 pictures, click this drop down menu and choose 5. The paragraph before this stays true but you will see 5 browse buttons before the submit. It makes it easier to submit 5 all at once then submit one pic five times.







---- Step 4

After your pic(s) are uploaded into your photobucket album, you should scroll down and see all your pics in there. In this example, you can see I have numerous pics in my album. This means they are stored in photobucket, ready for hosting.

If you look underneath each picture, there is three boxes. The green boxes are outlining the bottom Img box of the three underneath each one of your photos. This is what you are concerned with for each picture...goto the next step.











---- Step 5

I have chosen the first pic (see the lone green box) to link on the forum. If you click inside that Img text box, the entire selection should highlight up. At this point, you want to Copy this Link. You can do that by pressing Ctrl+C on your keyboard or right clicking with your mouse and choosing Copy.







---- Step 6

Then go into the post that you want to show the picture in, and here you want to Paste that link of text you just copied out of photobucket from Step 4. You can press Ctrl+V on your keyboard to Paste, or right click and choose Paste.

As you can see in the pic, it shows that link of text in the spot you post your threads on. It is simply the direct link to the pic you are hosting on photobucket and has the appropiate IMG tags already in place good to go.

When you're all finished, click Submit to post your new thread or post.







---- Step 7

And then you will see your pic...it is being hosted on photobucket for free and is being linked to from the forum.







Lesson complete. Hope that helps.

Problem is bandwidth, they remove your pics if you use too much bandwidth.

Easy fix. Since the Photobucket accounts are free, sign up for more than one. Just add another number on the login name and make another account.

I have 10 of these accounts, and revolve through them as I put pictures up. By the time I make full circle on the accounts, the bandwidth has died down enough that I can put new stuff up and let that get downloaded for a while.

Or you can not be such a cheap ass, get some decent hosting and host your own pictures.

photobucket resizes the pics half the time but imageshack leaves them completely untouched

photobucket will not resize them if they are not too big. I think they have to be kept under 200k minimum.

Imagestation is another great alternative, I just recommended photobucket because imagestation is usually down half the time.

You can upload about 140 different formats. There's even support for .RAR and .ZIP-archives! If you upload an archive with multiple images, you'll also get an album-address for all the pictures inside of it. Tags are separated by spaces, removal code is a password to let you remove images you upload.
Max file upload size is 100MB. If you're crazy and upload that much, then you should consider getting friends.

bayimg.com is a place where you can host all your images. We do not censor them. We believe in freedom of speech, it's of utter importance to us. As long as your pictures are legal they will be hosted here, but we reserve the right to remove images due to technical reasons though. If something crashes here, you better have a backup yourself - hopefully that won't happen. Usually we know what we're doing.

Use whichever you want. This was merely intended to educate those who truly had no idea how to host a photo.

that would be me, gawd I love a drop down menu that works, stupid microsquishy . If I wanted to do html tags and inserts of script I would be a flippin computer geek and drive a VW bug with a logo on it.
Thanks for the tutorial, now I have to go create another online identity to show some pictures of MUD.

You do realize this has nothing to do with Microsquishy, right? In fact, this forum is built on the "opposite" technology (for lack of a more descriptive term) than what Microsoft offers. What it has to do with is the owner of this forum not wanting to host pictures for the members, but rather have them do it themselves...

Is there any way to use Facebook to host pictures since most folks with Facebook accounts load pictures there as well?
