    I am able to post pics from my home pc from photobucket. But I recently got a macbook and can retrieve pics from photobucket but for some reason I can't get them to post on this forum when I am on the Mac. Is there an easy fix for this?? I love my Mac!

    That seems really strange to me. I have a MacBook and also use PhotoBucket to host personal pics...haven't had any problems posting things from PhotoBucket here with my MacBook (or the iBook I had formerly).

    The reason why I'm confused is that the Mac and PhotoBucket shouldn't interfere with adding pics to your BYC posts if you were able to successfully upload them to PhotoBucket. Photos should show up here if you have them uploaded to PhotoBucket and used the [ img ] tags in your post correctly along with the right URL to the photo you want.

    Can you attempt to post a photo to this thread from PhotoBucket -- anything you like -- as a test? I'll take a peek and see if I notice any problems.

    Is this the only website you can not paste it to?

    I use Firefox (if that helps).

    When in PhotoBucket, look for this box:

    [​IMG]

    Click on the IMG Code link, and it should automatically copy. You can then paste that tag directly into your post.

    If that doesn't work, use the Ctrl button and Ctrl+click on a picture in PhotoBucket; it should bring up a list of options. Choose "Copy Image Location." That will give you a copy of the image URL. You can paste that URL into your post and surround it with IMG tags.

    I am on a Mac, using Firefox. I went to your Photobucket page, and selected the IMG code from the menu on the right. I copied it, came back over here, and pasted the code into this post. This should work for you. [​IMG]

    ETA: Got beat to it.

    Quote:yeah--this is how I always do it on the pc, too and how I tried to do it on this new mac but it just doesn't show up when I hit paste. Paste is highlighted like there is something there to paste, it just does not paste.
