Help for a Community Member

hilleviw needs some advice:

      Help, I need help! I was going to come back, now that I've (finally) moved, but in the interim LJ seems to have changed its photo posting protocol and no longer has a direct relationship with photobucket (which I couldn't get to work anyway), and my attept to link to a picture I posted at Facebook didn't work. Short of getting a paid account at LJ, do you have suggestions for how to post now? What's been working for people?

Comments

I still use Photobucket and it works fine, so I'm not sure why she's having a problem or what to suggest. Sorry.
I'm still using photobucket, too.

When you post a photo in LJ now, click to "from URL" and place the "direct link" URL from photobucket in there. If the photo appears in the preview box, it's correct -- then you can even size it down a bit if needed (or up), and insert. It's actually (gasp) an improvement...
What they suggested...

Or Flickr. In flickr you can share any photo. You click on "Share" and then on "Grab the html/bb code" -- copy that code and paste it into LJ. It's how I share all my photos.
I'm still using my PB url just like I always have.
