Haven't been to Photobucket for awhile and since I've been away things have changed regarding inserting an image from there into the comments box on GUPS. Why oh why do they have to change something that used to be so easy. Can someone please help me out on how it's done these days. Many thanks.
I finally figured it. What a twit.

I see no-one has come to your aid re getting photos into photobucket, so I will try to help you.
First go to photobucket and when their home page comes up, click on my home. (you may have to log in first)
The site keeps changing, and the process is not what it was, but at the moment -
left click on upload photos, and it should take you either straight to my pictures, or a link to get there. I.E. there may be a little box at the top with my documents in it, and an drop-down arrow. click on the drop-down arrow and choose my pictures.
It will take you there. Now select the picture you want to transfer. Click on it and it will be highlighted with a bluish square, click on open, and it will begin to transfer.
Now, after doing that, you have lots of options in photobucket, like name it etc.
To then transfer to Grownups, under the photo, there is a box with several lines of print. Click on the one that has HTML in the title, and it may automatically say "copied" if not, right click on that line, select copy.
Now go to the comment box where you want to post it, set the curser where you want the picture to begin, right click, then left click on 'paste'.
It will come up in the comment box with a whole lot of letters, number etc. The photo wont appear until you click submit.
If you want to type in the box as well, you can, but if you go back to edit something you've typed, your picture will disappear.
You have an avatar, how did you get that there. It's more complicated than posting a photo.

I haven't used photobucket for a while but recently posted a couple of photos on GUPs.
However, a family member has said that anyone can look at the photos one has stored on photobucket.
Is this right?
Another reply from me, going grey.
There is a way of making photos in photobucket private, but why would anyone want to do that. If you put a photo in photobucket, the general intention is to post on one of the threads, so what's the difference. Surely no-one would put photos on photobucket that were unacceptable, and if they're fit for public viewing, what's the point of making them private.
Yes, you can look at photos in anyone's folder, simply by clicking on any of the photos they have published, but unless they are an artist, or a fabulous phototographer, most are of no interest to anyone else
They warn you to be careful of what information you put on the internet and photos, to me, are just the same. What if a weirdo clicks onto one of my photobucket photos, looks through my pictures and finds one of my 2 year old neice running naked in the garden - then he copies it and posts it on some child porn site? I know that's an extreme example but I think it's a bit strange that one wouldn't have control over the albums in their account.Thanks for letting me know you can secure your album. I've made my album `private' now.
Well you're cleverer than me then, I couldn't find where to click, although it didn't worry me

If you wish your Photo Bucket to be private, click on my home, then click on account settings, click on album settings, then make your album private, who needs millions to look at your photos, i have 8 albums and they are all private with over 7000 tags & pictures as i am in many groups, hope this helps ya`ll ~ Jude ~
THANKS JUDE, LUV YA PUSSYCAT
