    How To Post Pictures in your post

    Join http://photobucket.com its fast and free.

    After you join Photobucket you can upload your pictures from your computer to Photobucket.
    After the images are uploaded they will assign four links, EMail, IM, Direct Link, HTML tag, & IMG code.

    The IMG code is the easiest to use. Just right click on the IMG URL tag and it will say copied.
    Now when you are posting in a thread just right click again and left click on paste.
    The link will be displayed, not the picture.
    To see the picture before you post hit the Preview Post button and voila, you have pictures.

    Another way with Photobucket is right click on the direct link.
    This link can be used to re-direct a user to the image on your photobucket page.

    Also, the direct link can be used to post pictures here. Hit the [Insert Image] button
    Insert the direct link and the picture will appear without hitting the preview post button.

    Amazon and eBay images broken by Photobucket`s `ransom demand`

    Thousands of images promoting goods sold on Amazon, Ebay, Etsy and other shopping sites in addition to many forums and blogs have been removed after the photo-sharing service quietly changed its terms.

    Since 2003, the popular photo hosting service Photobucket has been letting users upload and host images for free on their servers.
    They have over 10 billion images stored by 100 million registered users. But now they’re going to start charging, and that means billions of images around the Web are now broken.

    Denver-based Photobucket is now seeking a $399 annual fee from those who wish to continue using it for "third-party hosting" and is facing a social media backlash as a consequence.

    Photobucket allowed hotlinking photos uploaded to and stored on its servers for a long time.
    Hotlinking (AKA inline IMG linking) is when someone takes an image file hosted on a server and embeds it on a different webpage elsewhere.
    Since the new webpage continuously requests the file from the original source server, it saps the server owner’s bandwidth (and storage space).
    This was their business model, and they made money from ads on their own site, which users would be exposed to when they went to upload content.

    Photobucket is now requiring its users to pay a $399 per year subscription fee for those who want to hotlink images from Photobucket’s servers to display elsewhere.

    * That means that billions of images across the Web now display an error message instead of the image.*
