    Quick Fix for URL\... code pushing photos to the right-

    Mid way thru the code you paste for the photo you will find a place that looks like

    ....html][IMG...

    Put your cursor between the brackets ] and [. Then press return or enter. This will drop you photo onto the next line so it stays to the left. You can also go back and edit previous posts to fix those photos as well.





    To create a PhotoBucket account and get started:

    Go here, click "Sign Up", and create an account: photobucket.com

    If you are using a PC:

    Go here and click sign in:

    photobucket.com

    Click the "Upload" button.

    Click on "Choose Photos & Videos".

    Navigate to the file on your computer where your photos are, and click on the photos you want to upload. That uploads them to photobucket.

    When you have uploaded all the pics you want, click "Library" and "View Library".

    Find one of the pics you want to include in your post and click on it.

    Copy the "IMG Code" id="size4">link ( not the "IMG Thumb" and not the URL Link )



    Now return to CM and paste the [IMG... stuff into your post. The photo won't show up when you're writing the post, only after you finish and click Submit. If you want to preview how the post looks, click the Preview button.

    If your pics slide to the right and have all the URL stuff attached like this



    you may have copied and pasted the IMG Thumb or URL link.

    To fix that picture, edit your CM post and delete everything outside of the [IMG........IMG] in the link to the pic. Or delete the pic link and re-copy only the IMG Code

    Here is how to prevent that from happening next time.

    Look on the right side of the PB page in the "Links to Share This Photo" area. Click on the little gear to get to the Link Settings.



    ================================================== =========================

    Un-Check ALL BOXES EXCEPT THE "IMG Code" (***The "LINK BACK" , URL, IMG Thumb,... will all push the pic to the right to make room for the link text).

    Click Save or Apply to save the new settings.

    ================================================== ========================



    If you want to resize the photo, click the Edit button next to the Slideshow button, and click Resize. Adjust the width number, and PB will automatically adjust the height. Click Apply, then Save.

    150 Height



    300 Height



    It helps to put a few blank lines between the pics.

    Now sit back and enjoy a cold adult beverage of your choice, confident in the knowledge that you have acquired some of the same skills your kids have had for years.

    It probably makes more sense to have the beverage first, and pay your kid $1 per photo to have them do it.

    PS - To add a picture to your signature, copy the IMG code of the picture to the "Signature" section of your profile, not the "Picture" section.

    Now if you happen to know how to size the picture would you please explain that. I've been able to post pictures but sometimes the picture are to large or to small and I just can't find where to resize them. A Happy New Year To all out there. Dennis

      If you are using the iPad app, go to the Albums tab, then tap the ^ up arrow. Choose the source album, and tap the pic(s) to upload.

      If you want to resize the pic, you have to install a 3rd party app like "SimpleResize", and re-size it on your iPad before you upload to PhotoBucket.

      Once it uploads to PhotoBucket, tap the photo, then tap the little chain (links) at the top of the page, and tap the "IMG Code" (not the "IMG Thumb") to copy the link. Then just paste that link in your ClassicMako post.

      As far as I can tell, the only way to change the settings to stop the link from showing up next to the picture is to log into your PB account from a PC, or thru your Internet browser on your iPad, and change your Upload Settings as outlined above.

        Photobucket [PB] new format and resizing has not worked for me. I reverted back to the old format. There is a little place to click at the top of the PB screen to do that.

        Your looking for a 640 X 480 size.

        Resizing before uploading to PB.

        I shoot my pix's in 1800 X 1200. Open the pix with Windows Paint and going to the Resize. I change the numbers in the box's. It will say 100. You only have to change one box and the other will follow along. Change it from 100 to 40 and it will be the right size.

                Does CM allow the /img tags to be used to link pictures to dropbox? I'm not a big fan of photobucket.

                    Really don't have a clue to what I have done but what I tried to do was change my sig pic. At one point I did have the new sig pic but it was shifted right with the link on the left. I went back to PB and unchecked all the links except the img code and now have my old pic and it is shifted right. Looked at the top of the page to go back to old PB format but can't find a link. Long story short...how do I make a new signature complete with pics?

                      The sig looks good now, although its still the old pic.

                      Try going to photobucket and copying the IMG code of the new sig pic you want.

                      Then go into the sig section of your CM profile, and delete everything below .."Auburn, AL". Paste in the new pic's IMG code and you should be done. If it shoves the pic to the right, just delete any http: stuff outside the [IMG] ... [IMG] brackets. It should end up looking like

                      ...Auburn, AL

                      (IMG)http://i1243.photobucket.com/................jpg(/IMG)

                      Not

                      ...Auburn, AL

                      Http://........id="size4">[IMG]http://i1243.photobucket.com/........jpg.[IMG]

                      Frustrating, isn't it.

                        Ken, not real sure what is going on here. I did what you said and it seems to be working. I could swear, and I did several times yesterday, that I did exactly that several times but without the desired results.

                        What if anything should I put in the 'Picture URL" box?

                          The picture URL box isn't for the sig. It's for the pic you want when somebody clicks on your handle to see your profile.

                          The new sig looks good! I like the orange and blue flag, even if the blue is a little different shade than I'm used to. Click my handle and you'll see what I mean.

                            Will not hold it against you as you were probably born into the cult and indoctrinated at an early age![B)]

                            Am certainly ready for the season to get started so I can put last behind us.

                              Click Browse, and navigate to the file on your computer where your photos are, and click on the photos you want to upload. Once they all have a check mark, click Done. That uploads them to photobucket.

                              Click "Library". Then click on a photo you want to include in your ClassicMako post. If you want to resize the photo, click Edit, then Resize. Adjust the numbers to resize. If you revise either the width or the height, Photobucket automatically adjust the other to keep the pic in proportion. Click Apply, then Save.

                              Click Save or Apply to save the new settings. You should be back at the photo now.

                              Click on the IMG link and copy that entire code. Paste that IMG code into your ClassicMako post.





                              It helps to put a few blank lines between the pics.
