Inserting from Photobucket?

Postby FSF Sail » Thu Dec 20, 2012 1:33 pm

I'll begin by reminding all of you that I'm one of the least savvy users of the forums. It took a full 2 years before yesterday, I successfully loaded a photo into a character bio all by my lonesome. Afterward, I thought it might be wise to have my own space to store and upload character photos into profiles, so I set up a Photobucket account.

When I attempted to upload a photo into a character bio post on the forums, I received the following:

It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image.

What am I not doing properly? Thanks for the help.

Assuming that worked (I'll edit this post if it didn't) then all you need to do is make sure you use the "Direct Link" from the Image Links menu on your photobucket (It should be to the right) and insert it between the image tags, for example mine above looks like the following.
Code: Select all
