    For those using Photobucket to host the photos of the items they are selling, note that Photobucket recently changed its terms and conditions and so probably won't work for you anymore:

    Seems it's not just for new pictures but all pictures.

    I've checked other sites over the last few days and pictures from week, months, even years ago are now showing up as this:

    Wonder if i used photobucket to upload this picture would it still show it as i used a third party hosting site? :D

    This might be helpful to some as lots of people are asking how to upload pictures since photobucket changed their rules.

    To post pictures directly from your computer.
    • With the picture on your computer open it with paint or some similar program. Resize the image so it is not too big.
    • Close the image and save it as the new smaller size.
    • Open Boards.ie/shooting in your browser.
    • Go into the thread you wish to post the pictures on.
    • Click new reply.
    • Click on "Manage Attachments".
    • A new window will appear.
    • Click on "Choose File".
    • A new window appears that leads to the files on your computer.
    • Click on pictures or whatever folder contains your pictures.
    • Click on the file name for the picture, and then "open" in the bottom right corner of the window.
    • The file location appears in the "Attachment" window.
    • Click "upload".
    • Repeat this for as many pictures as you wish to upload.
    • Once you have all the pictures selected scroll down the attachment window, and click on "Close this window".
    • You are now back on the main reply box for the thread.
    • You may post the pictures as attachments or alternatively you can click on the attachments under the reply box.
    • This will open the picture in a new tab.
    • Click on the address/header bar of the new tab.
    • Go back to the tab that has the reply box open.
    • Click on the "Insert image icon", insertimage.gif
    • Right click on the pop up, and click paste to insert the header/address into the pop up window.
    • Click "OK".
    • Repeat as necessary for all pictures.
    • Once done click "Post Reply".
    • The post will now have both pictures, and attachments.

    Can everyone wanting to post an advert please re-read this thread.

    There are more and more adverts appearing without pictures and i'm tired of the PMs asking why adverts with no pictures are being removed. You don't need photobucket as you can upload from a PC. This thread and a similar one in the for sale section tell you all you need.

    The promsie of pictures or e-mailing them is not good enough.


    Please read this and any questions on the process or any help needed feel free to ask one of the Mods.
