Can anyone tell me how to put graphics in posts (like in the birthday section)?

Sure, you just put the URL to the graphic within the IMG tags, much like a regular photo or image.
It works the same way. So, for instance:

Code: Select all

uploading photos

Post by MoirAran » Tue May 03, 2011 8:51 pm

I wanted to upload some photos of our newest addition to our pack, but I'm getting the message the pictures are too wide or too high. And I've already uploaded them small on Photobucket :roll: And after several tries and trying for 45 minutes , I give up :oops: Anyone got an idea?

assuming it's the right size :lol:
this may sound silly, but delete it off photobucket, re name the pic on ur pc and then up load to photobucket... again i've had this problem on a few websites with animated GIF's and it seems to always be the same problem... sorry if it doesn't help :cry:

One is Evil. It’s anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.
The other is Good. It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness and truth.

Glad to see that the photos are working now. :)
I'm not sure what the problem was in the first place as the Photobucket support center hasn't been able to provide me with a definitive answer. Usually, large resolution photos are automatically resized when they are uploaded to Photobucket, and the resized photos SHOULD (in theory) be ideally formatted to forum size (normally 800 x 600 or so). Anyway, it could just be the case that something went wrong on Photobucket's end and hopefully it has been fixed now. Sometimes it's just a matter of refreshing / reloading the page and clearing the online cache. Anyway, hopefully there won't be any more issues now.

i've had the problem with photobucket before (numerous times)... i've needed to change a gif, resize a pic and for some reason when i delete and up load again, it has the original before the changes. the only solution i found so far was to change the name by at least 1 didget (Sam-Sam1)... i been meaning to ask them about it but... i forgot :oops: :D
