Like the title says... this is a tutorial for uploading pics to the newest version of Photobucket and posting them here.
1. Make an account or log in... pretty obvious step.
2. Upload the pic.
Now there's a convenient drag-drop function, making it even easier to upload multiple pics at once.
Shouldn't take too long to load, but it can get stuck around 99% for a while, especially with .gifs.
Magic! Click "View Library". If you uploaded it to a different album, that album's name will replace Library.
3. Sharing the pic
Hover the cursor over the pic in your library. A gear symbol will appear in the upper right corner of the pic's thumbnail. Hover over the gear symbol.
Click "Share". A menu will appear. It'll start at "Social Networks", but you have to click "Links".
Click the IMG code (the bottom option in the Links menu). This will copy it automatically.
Log in to the forum, if you weren't already there (or if, like most of us, you never leave). Paste the IMG code into your post whatever way you want. Personally, I tend to use the keyboard shortcut (command+v).
Now, as you can see in the above pic, for some reason Photobucket has added the URL code to the IMG code, making the pic serve as a link to... well, itself. It'll send you to the pic on Photobucket in a new window if you click it once it's posted. If you prefer to not leave that option, delete the first part of the URL code (above the IMG code). Also, don't forget to delete [/URL], otherwise it'll just look silly.
It should now look something like this (if you deleted the URL stuff, that is):
From there, it's just like a normal post.
Ta-da! Your beautiful pic has now been uploaded and shared.
