It's a little bigger than we like but there are instructions on page 2 from Thomas on what to do when using Photobucket.

That link should take you directly to his post.

That post was from like 2010, so its updated and its not like that. http://s1357.beta.photobucket.com/
Thats the new photobucket and its different. If you want to resize it, you have to edit the picture, click on adjustment, click on resize and then put it to ?????? width and height.  :'(

The instructions have now been updated for the new photobucket.  Please let me know if there are any problems you can see with the instructions. 

Easy resizing that was formerly done when you uploaded images is a thing of the past unfortunately as legitpicklegirl10 pointed out.

There has been another update to the work in progress that is Photobucket.  You can now have the website auto-resize all uploaded photos.  To get this option is now included in the instructions in the first post.

I'm sorry but what size do I need to put it to? 640x480? There's been many different posts saying different heights and lengths.

800 x 600 is what the swap shop rules and story rules both say.

A better way to test what you've got is to use the Preview button (next to the Post button).  It will show you exactly what your post will look like and you won't have to make actual posts to test it.  :)

Also, make sure you're getting the image tags, either by copying them from Photobucket or by using the Insert Image button here.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've uploaded my pictures, resized them, but I can't click on the IMG thing to copy it. It's grayed out.

Can you get the plain image url? Then you can type out the [img] tags yourself and put the url where it should be.

I'll try that. I thought copying would be easier, less chance of an error on my part.

Okay, I went back in and reclicked and resaved some settings and it's working now. So much better than trying to type all that.

@mpart, I think you chose the HTML option instead of the IMG (the bottom one). If you copy that and paste it into your post, the picture should show up.
