Regular members will have noticed out American techie Aaron has changed the MAXIMUM size image we can use here.
It was annoying most of us to scroll left and right to read text.
(For those NOT yet signed up for photobucket - some night-time reading here - !)viewtopic.php?t=5308
The software now "CHOKES" down any large image to be no more than 850 pixels -- losing a LOT of quality on your photo. 99% of you STILL have the old account settings in place. Go to the blue "OPTIONS" link right above the 3 boxes you paste links into on your account page. Please now go to that OPTIONS tab, on your photobucket account and choose the MEDIUM photobucket size ("15") for when loading up future material for eventual display here. 800 x 650.
retain your current - the largest 1024 x 768 ("17") default size, as that is TOO large for our pages
, and our software now "chokes" them down, and you lose a LOT of clarity then.
ALSO - on your own photobucket settings you can quickly edit out the other links you never use, to just not appear so as you can't possibly get confused. (They for some reason initially give you 4 different
types of link by default.)I've edited mine to ONLY show: Direct Link
The top one I use where making avatars for members, the lower link is what we use on these boards
.Most members here would get by just fine with leaving just ONE option - i.e.:IMG Code
----------------------------IMPORTANT ... remember if you post a link from your photobucket account to this board and then LATER delete that Image from your account, the link to here will then be DEAD, and show as a dreaded red "X".
I did not realise that until deleting a few images in my early days of photobucket. So PLEASE do not delete images that you have posted anywhere here! Or the board will be populated with ugly red "X".
