    Photobucket has changed their policy and they no longer allow its members to post images on other sites unless they pay for the service and I believe they are asking for $399 a year to do this.


    You can upload images straight from your computer via the 'upload a file' next to the 'post reply' box.

    I use IMGUR which has been a great alternative to Photobucket.

    I'm having trouble doing exactly that (uploading from the computer), and I don't know why!

    Are you getting an error message?

    If so what does it say?

    No error-- the picture is simply not showing up below the message field where I can click to include it into the message.

    Does a box appear when you hit 'Upload a File' ?

    Are you able to choose a file from your computer?

    Is the file 'jpg' or 'png' or 'gif' ?

    Once you have chosen your file do you see a small picture under the reply box where there are two options 'Thumbnail' or 'Full Image' ?

    I think you've hit on it-- that's what I'm not seeing.

    Let's try this.


    Save these two images to your computer and then see if you can upload them to this thread.

    Another question, is this issue you're having relating to many different forums or one on its own?

    Have you tried to upload a photo through the 'more options' button in the other forums? Also as a test, in the other forum you were trying to post, can you see if you're able to upload the image you uploaded to this thread
