Yes, somewhere there is a sticky that explains how to post photos. However, I can assure they work for some, yet cannot be made to work by others. I fall in the latter group. I've followed the instructions to the letter and have only gotten one photo to post. I've given up trying.

Same here. I've even had photos change from an actual, viewable photo to the word "image."

Is there an easy way to post pics? Or a thread on this that I didn't see {F* {F*
It depends on your definition of easy...
I host my pics from my own server, to me it's easy :wink:

1.) Sign up for a Photobucket account
2.) Upload photo to photobucket (there's an UPLOAD button)
3.) COPY "Direct" image URL from Photobucket
4.) When posting on SGW, click the "IMG" button at the top of the Post A Reply screen
5.) You will see a flashing cursor located between two http IMG tags
6.) PASTE the URL you copied from Photobucket
7.) Profit

(BTW, if you "QUOTE" this post as if to reply you will see a Photobucket link positioned between two IMG tags.)



Bonus points to the first person to identify the shooter . . . :D

For those unfamiliar with Photobucket, take a look at this link:

http://s35.photobucket.com/user/Bladeswitcher/media/bsa/bsa4_zpsqjyokq86.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2

It should take you to a Photobucket page for a specific photo. On the right you will note a box containing four http links that are labeled Email and IM, Direct, HTML and IMG. I use the "DIRECT" URL when posting to Shotgun World. When you click on the code, your browser should copy it to your pasteboard automatically. If not, you can do the command-C thing or look for copy in your browser's file menu.

All you have to do is paste that code between two IMG tags. You get those tags when you click on the IMG button in the POST A REPLY screen. Click that IMG button and Shotgun World creates the opening and closing IMG tags and places a blinking cursor between them. That cursor is where you paste the URL you copied. It's that's simple.

Do it right and you get this:



ETA: Here's a screenshot of the photobucket page linked above. See the four URL's over on the upper right?:

As arguably the most prolific picture-poster on SGW, I was hoping Brad (ysr_racer) would post some directions that even the most technologically challenged (aka - me) could follow. That said, I think even I can follow these. :lol:

Thanks, Bladeswitcher.
