Baffled!!

pleeeeas can some  kind person explain as basic as you can how to get piks onto here  from Photobucket  

I've tried everything, and nothing wants to work!!

so before i send this bloomin laptop on a one way trip to mars, and do a quick run to the southern comfort bottle i'll give it one last shot if someone can pleeeeease explain how to do it   please  

ps. try not to start to explain with        "its easy"

The easy way is to take the photo at forum size, can you set your camera take shots at 640X480? you have a pc programme with your camera, try and download photos onto your PC via your cameras pc programme then pick them up from there I get mine from my Fugi finpix programme that came with the camera, this allows me to change the size and turn them around and label them etc. I stopped using Photo Bucket years ago.  I do hope this helps now don't break the camera.

I am going to disagree with G-M  

Take the photos on the highest resolution that your camera has; 5. 6. 7. 10 mega-pixels, etc.

Open Photobucket.

Where you see "upload photos and Video"just below it is a line that says:Use CTRL to select multiple files (more options) click on the more options bit and another window will open. Scroll down the page and select Large (640 x 480 ) then scroll down further and then click on high definition (if applicable) bit.

Close this window

This will be the only time that you will ever have to do this. and it will resize your photos automatically each time that you upload to photobucket .... ....  the resoultion will be pin point everytime if the photos have been taken at a higher pixel rate on on your camera.


To upload photos, and video; click on Bulk up loader and select the files that you want to up load and wait until it has finalised. Another widow will open and you may add tags and titles, etc. if you want to. Click save and return to Album

Select edit on the the photos thumbnail, and click on the Auto fix icon, then click on the Replace original icon
