    Here's how I post a photo using the Mighty JD & my computer's file of photos instead of Photobucket...

    - I type my wording for a post (or new thread)
    - 'click' on Upload a File at the bottom of my reply
    - photos in my computer's file appear & I just 'double click' on the photo I want to appear in my post (or new thread)
    - the photo appears in my JD post
    - 'click' on Thumbnail or Full Image & there it is... (this is Full Image)
    - Then 'click' on Post Reply and my post looks like this:

    Am I doing it right???

    I find it much easier posting pics on here since the changeover. I am on my phone the other gave me problems. Looking like you have mastered it now Gary..

    That's the typical way to do it.

    You run into trouble if the photo is too huge.

    Whether you're on a telephone device or a desktop computer there are easy ways and complex ways to shrink the image.

    Good info Clydetz, maybe post that up again with its thread since photobucket just went asshole on us. $399/yr to 3rd party host pics is bullshit...

    No idea! I pretty much gave up on PB. I have all kinds of trouble trying to edit photos & sending them. I notified PB about the problem but I have never gotten a response from them.

    Why? While I know you Tejasians can be a petulant bunch this seems like a lot of effort.

    It wasn't much effort at all.

    What's the point of having PB if you can't share your pics?

    All I know is that looking on forums for sale threads I see A LOT of fubarred threads saying pb doesn't allow imbed, or you have exceeded your limit or whatever. Who the fuck wants to deal with that in 2017.

    I'm not getting the "can't share your pics" thing. I just did that yesterday for no :wallet:. Is this a "Tejasians finally getting their due" deal? If so seems fair to me. :domowhack:

    From a thread on WUS posted 3 hrs ago
    Ruined Threads.
    It's old news now but is anyone else Pixxed Off by the Photobucket thrird party hosting mess?

    I have always directly loaded images from my computer so my postings have not been affected but there are quite a few brilliant threads that have been posted over the years that have lost most of their relevance by losing their images - a shame really - I think most posters here on WUS are not using photobucket to sell anything - but just to contribute to these forums.

    ImageShack was another of my free hosting sites over the years.
    Faster and usually less buggy than PB.

    Now they've gone to paid subscription accounts only. All pics there under the formerly free accounts have been
    digitally *seized*, and require a yearly *ransom* of $37.99/year to retrieve.
    Any/all hosted pics in Forums? Overnight they became X's, rendering the posts pretty useless.

    Fuck them...

    I reckon less and less people are using their services (Clicking on their ads) and they have to stay open somehow....

    I refuse, myself incorporated.
