elpaelpa, It wasn't an official topic. It came up in conversation on an OT link, Funny Stuff page 3. Follow the instructions like I did and you can't miss!

BTW. I tried to link that last photo of mine, from the Picasa Web Albums. But the link would not work. Any ideas, anyone?

Lighthouse, your picture is so quaint, but you didn't say where it was taken.

If we're asking questions, why does photobucket say the picture is one size but posts another size? I THINK WE NEED JD:)

techgranny, in Photobucket you size a picture as follows: after you uploaded the pic, click on it. Then it will show just that picture with options above it. "Resize" is one option. 640x480 is a good size for the Forum. After it did the resize, you pick up the IMG link from there.

You uploaded your photo to that that account?

elpaelpa, What seem to be your problem with Photobucket? Once you uploaded, you click on IMG (last link)-if it gets yellow, you got it in your Clipboard. Then you paste into your post and the photo will appear AFTER you posted (in your post you will only see the link). One more thing you may want to do: After you uploaded, click on the loaded picture in your album. That will bring the pic up all by itself. Above the pic you have the "Resize" option. I prefer 640x480, that does not make it too big or too small. After resize, you click on IMG right there.
