Did you move the picture to a different folder in Photobucket?  It has to always stay in the same place for it to show up on the forum, or you have to change the image link after you move the picture.

I just put the one pic in there to see if it would work, when I hit the preview, it was in there.  Will try again, I am not real familiar with photobucket, if it doesn't work, will just keep using the dumb little thumbnail, lol.  Will try again and post it to see if I can fix it.
Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Ok, trying again. Made new album, saved it, named it and see if it works.  Let me know.

Wow, on my end a little big, will resize if this is working.

You can resize it on Photobucket.  The size we want is 480 x 640 (large).

Any particular reason why Photobucket keeps on deleting the titles of my photos and putting them out of order?

Is there a way for Photobucket to autmoatically resize images on upload? Or does it have to be manual?

It eventually played nice. I think it was the stick threat that did it.

I don't really know.  I just resize mine manually.

I do the bulk download to do all of my pics and just below where they download to, find where it says max image size and right next to it click on "more options" and a small box will come up and you choose what size you want your pics and then click save and it will size all of your pictures without doing them one at a time.  I just found this out a couple of weeks ago and sure saves alot of time when you have 20 pictures to size.  Hope this helps.  Only thing is, everytime you upload, you have to change it again, which is no problem, that only takes a second.  Good luck. ;D

Yes, Salty, thanks very much for that information.  I hadn't really looked for a way to do bulk resizing.  I'll have to give it a try.

Photobucket now have an easier method that now stays the same each time!

When you go to the photobucket website you will see a green button with Upload on it, click that to get to the screen below:



Before you click Select photos and videos first choose Customize your upload options to get this screen:



Now select the picture size of the forum which is 640x480 or lower and press save. You can now upload your photos/videos and it will be automatically saved, the best thing is though that photobucket seems to have remembered that I set it to 640x480 and I haven't needed to change it since I tried it so now all my pictures and being uploaded and re-sized to 640x380!

Hope this helps some of the story tellers who use photobucket!



I didn't know where to put this so I just added it to the existing thread on posting images to the forum.

The new size for pictures on the forums is now up to 800x600 for people who have changed their photobucket settings as demonstrated by Thomas above.

Will this be affected by the in-game screen resolution? i.e: Will the pictures come out fuzzy or anything? I once had that happen, but I think I was on the lowest resolution. I now play on the second highest. (I dislike the very highest, it came out fuzzy on the gallery when I tried to upload screenshots)

It all depends.  I have a 23.9" monitor that can do a 1920x1080 resolution so when I upload to photobucket it auto sizes them proportionately to 800x450.   The gallery did the same thing where it will try to keep the proportions of the photo while still doing the size you want. 

I've never had the gallery or photobucket make any of my photos fuzzy though when it came to resizing unless I resized them myself incorrectly.

Did you press "C" or click the camera icon while in the game?  Are you sure you went to the right place to find the images?  It's located at C:/Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Screenshots.

Yes, I used the C button. It didn't show up on the files, but it showed up on the launcher.

Just a test :P

Have you noticed that I'm kind of insane when it comes to genetics?
