    If you click the image code here and them put the image code from photobucket in there, you have double "[​IMG][/img]", right?

    So just copy and paste the image code directly in the message without using the img button above.
    OR
    Use the img button and then use the direct link code from photobucet.

    I tried to just copy and paste, then I did the url and then I tried other ways. I got some crazy looking things. I switched to a different picture hoster and it worked there. Not sure why photobucket didnt work but walmart did. Got it posted! thanks for your help.

    In "my page" you need to use the image editor-pic looks like a tree. Use the Direct link from photobucket.

    Correct, for your BYC pages you use just the link to the image and NOT the tags. The [img] tags are just for the forum, so if you are using images you've uploaded to byc you need to remove these img tags and upload the image directly. The image url will look like this:
