    Ok, here we go step-by-step

    First thing you have to do is create an account with PhotoBucket or another site that offers the option to upload images (ImageShack, Flickr etc. do the same - choose one you like best).
    In this case I'll use PhotoBucket as an example.

    In PhotoBucket you create an account in just two steps:

    Go to http://photobucket.com/ and on the top you find a sign up button:

    When you click that you get this:

    [​IMG]

    Fill it in and when you have created your account enter your username + password and if you're working on your own computer you can choose 'remember me', so you won't have to login again and again;)

    Click 'sign me up' and if the name you wanted isn't already taken you get this screen next:

    Click 'no thanks' to get a free account.

    Then you get asked what settings you like for your default folder - I prefer to keep things private



    And you're done



    When you're logged in you have an option to choose which files (images you want to upload).
    Just click the green button and a browser window opens and you can select the files you want to upload.
    You can select multiple files at once - it only makes the upload take a while longer to get it's job done

    I'll chose one in this case.
    Clicking on ok gives an option to browse to the file on your computer.
    Like this:

    [​IMG]

    And voila you see your file appear

    When uploaded you're guided to a page with options to add remarks etc.
    I never use them, but if you use it for pictures it might be handy.



    Click 'go to album' at the right or click save if you've made changes and you're guided back to thumbnails of your images.

    When you hover over the thumbnail there appear several options.

    For Thelatebay choose 'IMG code'. Rightclick on the link and choose 'copy'.

    Go to your post in TLB and paste the code you just copied into the textbox.



    And now your image should appear
     
  2. I have made a 20 megabyte section on my hard drive for pictures and the programs for mucking them about. I can upload to the web or paste on emails from there.
     
  3. I've done all of this but all i see is a small square with a blue smaller square with a question mark in it. in fact thats all i see of your images above

  5. if i try "upload a file" it says the file is to big? its only iPhone pic??
     
  6. how do you upload pictures straight off your android phone (missing photobucket?)
     
  7. I email them to myself, select 'small or medium' when you get the option for file size. Then open the email and save to your camera roll. They upload easy after that.
