Pictures Not Showing Up
« on: February 25, 2012, 06:40:48 PM »
I'm trying to upload pictures for a new story i'm going to write but they won't show up. I'm using the gallery for my pictures.

What I'm Doing: I right click on the picture and select "Copy Shortcut". Then I click on the "Insert Image" and paste the link here. When I hit preview, all that shows up is a small box with an x on it (no picture). I've only been sucessful in posting pictures on Wordpress, but I don't want to waste my time uploading them there when I've already spent 15 minutes uploading them to the gallery. What am I doing wrong?

*EDIT: Before I get any reccomendations for image uploading sites, I'm going to let you all know I don't want to use Photobucket.


I tend to have loud opinions. So sorry. I got tons of issues, lol. I can also be found on Yahoo! Answers.

Hey KirbyAndKat, and welcome.

Right Click the Image and select "Copy Image URL" or something similar. If you don't have that option, Right Click the image and select "Properties". Then find a part that says "URL". Copy and Paste that.

Just a test:


How can I resize it? I want it to be larger. And thanks for the welcome!  :)

Are you uploading them to Carl's Sims 3 Image Gallery? That should resize them to 800 x 600 which is quite a bit larger than the image you have now.

Yes I am.

However, under Preferences, (even though the dimensions are 800x600), the dimensions read, "128x96 pixels".

You are copy and pasting the thumbnail image not the actual image.

Your actual image looks like this:



After uploading screenshots you get to a screen that looks like this:



Copy and paste the http:// line to get the picture you want to use.  I want to use the picture Creepy Vamp Child (top of the list) so I C&P that line and put it between the img code brackets and this is how it looks in a post.



Hope this helps.

Okay. At first, I thought you simply copy and paste. But I was proven wrong. Thanks so much Seabody and Ricalynn!

How would you resize photos in Photobucket?

I thought you were using the gallery that's why I sent you here.  I will PM you with photobucket instructions since it's off topic.
