    Great tutorial! Thanks for posting it. I've found photobucket to be one of the best hosting sites there is.

    Great Tutorial, Paul!

    I've been wanting to switch from postimage.org/imageshack because the upload speeds are SO SLOW for the past several months. The site has had reliability issues as well (server/gateway errors). And, alot of members here made mention about the thumbnail pics loading rather slow, so this thread got my wheels turnin', and after a PM with RonP, he set me straight on the account memory usage details.

    RonP suggested I go to photobucket awhile back and I started an account about 10 days ago so I could start playing around with and see what I can do.

    I got a pic resized to 120 x 90 from one of my signature dishes and figured out how to get it to load, so, now I have an Avitar...COOL!!!

    Nice work, Paul! Most sincere thanks! [​IMG]from me too.

    I'll be going with photo bucket now...I'll probably post up some q-view later tonight just for giggles to see how nicely it works out.

    This should be a sticky as the old tutorial has had lots of information deleted from it. [​IMG]

    I happen to be partial to Google's Picassa - you think I'll be OK if I stick to resizing images to 640 x 480? If I can avoid learning another app, I will. Thanks in advance.

    I believe you have to have a Webshots account to view the images, not sure but I believe only members can access it.

    Picassa requires you sign in with a google account so it is not forum friendly in that regard as not everyone has or wants a Google account...

    Photobucket is set up for ease of use in forums some of the others are not, you have to be sure that you are set up to allow public viewing of you images...

    Photobucket has all the links for you and all you do is cut and paste...
