"Copy image" doesn't necessarily copy the image address; that's why that often won't work. Find your image in your source website and right-click it, then select "copy image address". Then click on the photo icon in the menu above this message box and paste (ctrl-v) the address into the text box for the URL address. You should end up with a long string URL address, bracketed with (IMG) on either side. When you post your message the image should be imbedded in the message.

Interesting - that is what I formally used, but it did not consistently work, someone suggested "copy image" and it has worked every time. I just push buttons, no understanding at all, therefore no challenge to your comment. Open to any technical enlightenment.

OK---so for you Photobucket gurus, how do you change the size of the picture. I sure would like to post some pics on here once in a while!

Not a photobucket guru but what I do that seems to work is change the photo size to 800 X 600 before uploading to photobucket. Upload the photo, then select the photo to post from the photobucket library, select the share format as URL, copy the photo, select the picture icon in the message, then paste to the post. The URL address will appear in the draft but if you Preview Post you should see the picture.

OK getting closer, thanks Bill. Now I have a question in relation to this photo so I'll see if I can start another thread with a successful photo post.
