Testing Photobucket

I tried attaching a URL to an image I have saved at Photobucket but nothing appears.  Can someone show me how to do this?  Here is the link:

This time I tried attaching the HTML code rather than the URL.  The image appears but it does not fit on the screen.  There is also some unwanted code appearing below the image.

After submitting the post, I now see that it fits the screen (although the unwanted code still appears).  However, unlike with the old site, I cannot click on the image to see a full size, high resolution image.  Is it possible to add this functionality?

 

It would also be helpful if photobucket images could fit inside the window in the full-page editor.  Scrolling back and forth to add captions and spaces is a PITA when posting multiple images.

I cannot click or double-click to do this.  However, it seems to work if I right click and select "Open in new window."

Rather than do this the hard way, why not watch the EpicSki Picture and Video Tutoial.  Take about 5 minutes.  There are two tabs on the picture import utility.  The default (left) tab lets you browse your hard drive to upload an image.  The right tab lets you enter a URL for an existing image on the web.  Web pages can be simply copied and pasted and the images will follow with no coding required.  

 

Not only can you import your image easily, but you can right click it, and assign borders, size and justification.  So pictures can actually flow with text now.  To see this image full size, right click on it and select view image. 

 

 This image was resized to 300 pixel horizontal auto height with 1 on all borders and right justification, then dropped where I want it.

 

You can find all the tutoricals under the Wiki link and alphbetical index E for epicski.

Thanks for the response.  I had already reviewed the tutorial.  I still cannot properly embed an image saved on Photobucket.  I can attach an image directly from my harddrive using the default (left) tab, as you suggest.  This is fine for a couple of images but can be tedious for many. 

 

The benefit of Photobucket is that I can batch upload all of my images (while I am doing something else - like skiing or writing a trip report) and then quickly link to them in epic.  At least, this is the way it worked with the old site.  If I add the images directly to epic from my harddrive using the left tab, it takes more time as I have to wait for each pic (some up to 4 megs in size) to upload to epic.  This was a problem when I tried to post trip reports using a slow wireless connection while skiing in CO last week. 

 

Are you able to embed the following URL from Photobucket using the existing image (right) tab?

When I do it, I see a little square with an image of a torn page.

 

Also, when right clicking on an image attached using the left tab, the image opens in a new window - but only in Firefox, not IE7.  It appears smaller than the one attached in the original window (using the most recent version of Firefox).  On the old site, if I clicked on the image, it would open in a new window and would nearly fill the screen - in both Firefox and IE. 

 

Are you able to open the image in a new window with IE7?  Most of my friends and family that view my trip reports use IE7.

 

Thanks for your help.

You need to use the correct Photobucket direct URL:

Thanks, that works.  It may be helpful to include in the wiki that the "Direct Link" needs to be used for Photobucket.  The right tab in the image attachment box is confusing because it asks for the "URL".  Photobucket offers four options: Share URL; Direct Link; HTML Code and IMG Code.

 

The image still does not fit in the window in the full-page editor and cannot be viewed in full resolution.  Perhaps these issues can be resolved by the software developers after they fix some of the more pressing problems.

The image is stored on Photobucket at 768x576 pixels and can be viewd at that resolution by the right click, view image method.   For uploading to EpicSki, and for that matter to Photobucket I suggest you resize images on your hard drive to save a lot of time.  I batch resize all of my photo folders to a standard resolution of either 800 x 600 or 1026 x768.  This makes the files much smaller, and upload faster.  Photobucket caps the size of your photos anyway for non-premium accounts.  So it just saves a lot of time. 

 

I use Visualizer resize utility.  You just tell it where to find the photo album, and it resized all of them into a subfolder called resized.

 

I'll add the note to use Direct Link on photobucket imports.
