Uploading photos

So, signed up with photo bucket. Copied the url of the photo, pasted in the section on here that says upload url. Then get the error message.

WTH? I’m doing this on my iPhone btw. Can someone please walk me through this and please speak to me like I’m a retard because with this shite I am.

Thank you in advance.

For reference, here are steps to post photos.

1. upload photos to imgur
2. copy link from imgur
3. paste link to Falfiles thread using the following convention

“[img]” + filename.jpg + “[/img]”

You can control size of image by adding “s”, “m” or “l” for small, medium or large respectively before “.jpg”

Hope this helps.

Imgur is easier to use than fotophucket.

I use both ^ of the above.

My impression is that once the photo is on Imgur, it is the easiest to use. My experience with Imgur re: wireless / wifi downloads off the phone is that they SUCK dog balls. In fact, this is what led me back to Photobucket this month... just getting the photos to upload required me to email them from my phone to my gmail account BEFORE I could upload to Imgur.

Photobucket, OTOH, is (slightly) harder to use, but they are super easy for getting multiple photos from phone directly to the 'bucket'.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong...
