Replacing Photobucket pictures

Postby johno » Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:20 pm

With Photoucket having disrupted the whole concept of sharing pictures onto forums I thought I'd try to find an alternative which works. The two images below are from my Flickr account and pasted as follows.

from Flickr
Open a Flickr account and upload your pictures. Select the picture you want to share and open it in your account (view full size) Click the select box under the picture, right click on the picture and 'copy image location.
On this forum in the 'topic box' (the one you type in) click the Img icon and paste the url of your pictue between the [Img] brackets.
the selected picture should now appear in your post when you preview or post it.

A mamoth task for some, but worth doing to preserve the wealth of technical info and other features on the forum.

Pinched from another forum

Try this if you use Chrome. I've just followed these instruction and all the photobucket "upgrade" invisible image placeholders have gone back to images again, other than where folks have deleted their PB accounts!

Open Chrome
Click on the rows of small horizontal lines located in the top right hand corner or the white on orange up arrow top right if you have a later version of Chrome
Then click on "more tools"
Then on "Extensions"
Then "Get more extensions" if you already have some, e.g. Ad Block.
Type in "Photobucket embed fix" and hit the return key
A link to "Photobucket embed fix" extension should appear. Click on it and you are done.

Photobucket image problem. There is now an 'add-on' for Firefox users. ... ucket-fix/
seems to work fine.
