    Well, chances are, if they are a red x, where ever you hosted the picture is either down or has been moved so the address that was specified in your post is no longer valid.

    That would be the reason - the picture must exist somewhere in the emosphere for it to show up, it is being pulled over here and shown - not "hosted" here.

    I'm learning too, Redhen. Thanks for asking the question. I must have some red Xs lurking in some of my posts somewhere... [​IMG]

    I did the same thing redhen...added a bunch of pictures to photobucket and then deleted them there and wondered why they didn't show up on my journal i had! It's confusing! [​IMG]

    Quote:Consider the place that your pictures have been uploaded to (such a PhotoBucket) the true location of your photos.

    If you go somewhere else (such as BYC) and do something to let others see your pictures in your posts, it's kind of like giving the people who view your posts (or blog) a pair of magic glasses that let them see your photo, even though it hasn't moved from its true location.

    That's the best explanation I can give without using a whole bunch of geeky computer terms you might not understand.
