    You can...
    • Switch to the BB Code Editor
    • Copy and paste the images
    • Create an album with all the images and just link to the album

    Those are the ideas I can think of.

    I was just trying to post just a couple pics and am running into a problem too. Before the update there was an upload icon that would automatically open a new window with your album and it was a simple copy paste. Now...as far as I can see you click on the pic icon and it opens up a window to browse new pics but will not open up existing albums. Whats up with that??....we have to manually open another BYC page and go to profile album etc. thats such a pain process compared to b4. If there is an easier way, someone please help me?!! THANKS!![​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Did you check this out?

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/inserting-pics-in-on-the-new-byc

    About uploading multiple photos at once..... do this:
    • Go to "My Profile."
    • scroll way down, and click on, "Upload Photos."
    • then, click on, "create a new album." Then, you can upload multiple and they go into one folder. You can then post the link to the whole album.

    Hope this helps.

    If the hang up is choosing multiple pics, at once, to add to a post: quick and dirty method if editing in bbcode: Open two instances of BYC. One to the post, the other to your album. That way one can scroll through album click on shots and copy links to clipboard. Go to post paste `shots'. A good clipboard viewer (like Yankee Clipper http://www.intelexual.com/products/YC3/ - free) comes in handy (if using XP). [​IMG] Didn't search for anything automated? So, I might be tooling along all bass ackwards :(

    That's still more complicated than using html codes like; , and just pasting the image url in the center, just does not make sense to me to upload the same images to Facebook AND on an album here...

    I just copy links from wherever (photobucket,, etc) to clipboard viewer then drag and drop them from clipboard viewer into post (pretty quick as viewer is always on top). Not perfect, but not that time consuming.

    Where is clipboard viewer? I don't want to have to create a new album every time I want to post a pic. Photobucket was so much easier.

    Clipboard viewers are a way to compile/index files/graphics/URL's/etc. that you might want to use later. I use the registered version of the program I linked to in previous post. I copy multiple image links from Photobucket Albums. I can then `shoot' (`drag/drop') the links into posts here. Different viewers work differently (again, I can speak to winXP and YClipper editing, on BYC, in BBcode). [​IMG]
