How do I place photos or graphics in posts? Pasting locks up everything.

I upload to photobucket, they then give you a forum code to copy and paste into the post. 

 

If it's an issue with copying and pasting into the forum, are there any adblockers or things running that could affect it?

I tried it with adblocker off, no improvement. It appears my issues are with the size of the photos. The photos I would like to place are in the mega bytes.

 

Does anyone know how to reduce a photos resolution so the file is smaller?

Reducing the size of the photo can be done in many photo editors, including MS Paint, but as I understand it you're likely to have better luck uploading the pics to a site like photobucket or imgur, and then using the url of the online hosted photo in the 'insert photo' button on the post options here.

The photos are in Photobucket. I tried the copy IMG button and the Image button in this form. It just locks up.

 

I don't do Facebook or much on the internet if I can avoid it. What I need is someone to tell me how to put a photo in a post. Explain it to me like I am mentally deficient, retarded, or just plain stupid. I follow instructions well.

 

Don't be worried about hurting my feelings either, you won't.

Just noticed GIFs are not allowed, is this on purpose?

Related question- I used the img urt from Picasa before (Picasa is now just Google Photos). Always worked fine until recently, now gives a message that it is no longer allowed? Haven't posted many pics in my World Eaters project log because of it.

Anybody else having this problem? I'm literally doing the exact thing that I did here and other forums (thedarkcity.net, The IC's and others) and don't have these problems since the Goolge switch over. I have a bunch of WE stuff on deck for Nivember and would love to post here again.

Yeah google got rid of the .jpg extension recently forcing everyone to use their new proprietry encoded format. You can only publish pictures through twitter, facebook or Google+ and the .jpg extension isn't allowed.

Essentially they want to close down picasa and have trying to do it for years.

This, in my view, is so that google can control and monitor image usage e,g a precusor to image rights, claiming image rights or monetising images as well minimising the cost of photo-storage which is massive.

I'm keeping my images offline or on Flikr, but i expect flikr will fuck us sooner or later once google finishes migrating everything.

Last week i was so angry about this, i lost my shit in a post.

I now use the feature on this forum, upload to here and screw the twitter, facebook and google+.

Photobucket stopped every photo I've posted for last few years today.
I have to pay the £30 to use photos in photobucket for third party hosting.......
Sad times!
Soooo do I spend time moving everything across to imgur or Flickr OR willl they do the same???

I use flikr for all of my pictures and even GIFs. No fees or any hassle. Their mobile app sucks though. I haven't found a way to get the forum code through the app or mobile site. I always have to request the full site, if I am on my phone, or just use my laptop to add in the picture links. Other than that flikr has worked great.

So to be clear, Google, Imgur, Photobucket all don't work on the forum.. hmm, massively disappointing, I've resized images for here before and the resolution drops and they look pretty bad as a result..

Clicked on the IMAGE button above and pasted the link...

How'd you post without the image uploaded button? It isn't visible when I'm using a mobile device.

Edit - never mind. I used the BBcode link on imgur and that worked.
