Mac Tutorial for Photobucket

Mac Tutorial for Photobucket

The way the PC uses Photobucket and the way a Mac use it are different.  This is for Mac's.

To Start a Photobucket Account

Go to photobucket.com and register. Finding a name that wasn't used, was my hardest part. lol

Once you have, you will have blank albums. You can select a name for an album.  You may want to make it descriptive and open a few different albums in time, depending on what you intend to host there.

To upload your pictures is easy.
Click on Upload Images and Videos
Select the picture or video you want from files, or desktop on your computer.  (You can hold down the shift key and select multiple pictures to upload at one time, if they are in an uninterrupted list.)
Click Open
Next screen, you can give titles and descriptions to each picture.(Or you can bypass this by going directly to Save)
Click Save

To Post on the Forum from Photobucket


Go to your album.
Select the picture(s) or video(s) you want from a single page.
For a video, this method will show a picture of the video that will be clickable.
I find my links most reliable when I use the generate code.

For generate code:

Click on small square under pic or slideshow or video,
Scroll down to bottom of page- choose action
Generate link codes
Then choose the IMG for bulletin boards & forums
Full size ( or clickable thumbsize)
Highlight
Copy ( it may say copy is on your clipboard, which means it is copied and ready to paste)


Note that this forum software will resize large pics to 600 pixels width for you. You don't have to make your pics smaller, or worry about size.

Please note: if you move or reorganize your pictures that have already been posted, the link will no longer work, and the picture will not be seen until you repost a new link

Photobucket has made some new changes. The one change  I see for posting is the "choose action" to then get the "generate HTML and IMG codes).

If you see some other good improvements that we might like to use/know about, please share here. :)

Another change is that when you click on the link, it is automatically copied, so then you just come here and do paste. If you do a copy, it won't paste, lol.  Annoying to remember....
