It may be that only the actual account holder of the shutterfly account can access the URLs of the picture. Cobbie, have you tried downloading the photos to your computer and then saving them in photobucket?

No, I haven't but I wasn't trying to actually post those photos, just help Mayfire who has a Shuttefly account. I went to my son and DIL's album to test them out before sending Mayfire Pidgeon's instructions. Hopefully, you're correct and she will be able to post from there instead of opening a PB or Flicker account.

Has anyone been able to get it to work from flickr?
I tried to post a picture and all I got was the little "red X" icon indicating it could not display the picture...

Here is an example:

Photobucket is the easiest site to share pics especially on forums like this one.
They have the tags right below the thumbsnails pic
so you link to the separate images.
I use photobucket to host all photos,blogs images
&scrapbook pages that I share online.

Shutterfly is good if you want to make a print photo book with special ocassion photos
such as Baby 1st year,A Wedding,graduation,special aniversary party
or scrapbook.

or have a private family,friends only by email invite only
albums.

Photograph of Arthur, our English Bulldog. This was Arthur three years ago. These days he looks a lot like Jack Elam in The Cannonball Run. (no offence, Jack!)

Docmama28, change your [URL]s to [IMG]s. Be sure each one is enclosed with brackets. You get this by copying the IMG code on Photobucket.

  Trying to see if the picture comes out of my new Kitchen Aide Mixer in Tangerine.    I stocked up on baking supplies, so I cannot wait to bake from scratch.

If you don't want to create an account on yet another site just to share photos, I recommend trying out imgur.com. It's a free photo sharing service that does not require an account. The only thing that might discourage some is that the content there is not "kid-friendly" -- e.g., the ads tend toward the racy side, comments on photos can be NSFW, etc. Oh, and it can be a time sink....

The basic steps are:

1. Go to http://imgur.com/
2. Under "Upload Images" click the "Computer" link/button
3. Select the photo you want to upload
4. Click "Start Upload"
5. When the photo appears, copy the BBCode to the right of the photo (example shown below) to your clipboard
6. Go to your forum message and paste the contents of your clipboard into your message

If you don't want the photo in the forum to be linked back to the image on imgur.com, use the plain BBCode. Otherwise, use the linked BBCode. (You'll see other links are provided for other uses.)


(That is an example of an image that is linked back to imgur.com, so clicking on it will take you there. You can see the original condemned-house image here.)
You can find books by me (Stuart Whitmore) on my author web site.
