LA, the clipboard is just a computer term. It means... Well, it means you copy something, and the clipboard is just a term for what's holding what you last copied. You don't need to find it, you just do a paste command and there it is! Does that make sense?

I think I get that PR but then this confuses

Note...Photobucket has recently changed so all you need to do is left click the URL LINK you want and the link will be copied to your clipboard. Then follow the instructions in Posting the Image.

how will the link copy to my clipboard if I don't send it there ?ANd how do I find that once it's copied to my clipboard ?

Do those questions make sense ?

And thank you so very much I am so lost...

Photobucket has somehow worked it so that clicking in any of the little boxes that give URLs, image tags, or html tags automatically copies it without you having to enter the command yourself. I do not know how they did this, but they did, so all you have to do is the paste command wherever you want to put it. Paste command is either pressing Ctrl and V at the same time, right clicking for the pop-up menu and clicking on paste, or going to the edit menu at the top of the window and selecting paste. Ctrl+V is my preferred command because it's just faster. I'm a keyboard person more than a mouse person (unless I'm playing games, but I'm trying to keep it simple) so it's a matter of preference.
Stop worrying about the clipboard. Do not focus on the clipboard. The clipboard isn't real, it's just a computer term. You do not need to find the clipboard or use the clipboard, you just need the paste command (and in some places that aren't photobucket, the copy command, which on the keyboard is Ctrl+C if you're wondering)
I hope that wasn't too long and/or complex...

Depends on where and how your pics are hosted. If the pic has a generated URL link, try that. If it ONLY has a generated [img] tag line it won't work here. Most of us use photobucket because it is free, so easy, and so very very pretty.

Since you aren't using photobucket, I can't tell you how to resize it. (Which is why we were telling you to use photobucket...)

Go over to Troll Country (pick any thread) for testing purposes. Don't test here, hon! You can test anything over there and it won't post onto any active threads. You'll find lots of test threads there.

EDIT: How's this size?

That size is perfect really.

I dont want you to think i'm being stubborn or difficult or what not it's just that i have so many accoutns with thing all over the place it's hard to track them so i try and consolidate where I can, so i'm trying to stay away from photbucket for now. I will try and figure out the resize and if i can't oh well maybe i'll have to lookinot photbucket
Thanks for all the help

Could you put a warning in your tutorial that you should copy an image to your photobucket account (or whatever imagehosting site you use) instead of directly linking to a clipart site?
It can result in the original site having to pay alot of money in bandwidth fees.

Here is a wikipedia article on Bandwith theft:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bandwidth_theft

A friend of mine that runs a clipart site specifically mentioned this site and this thread to me because someone was directly linking to a image on their site.

Please be aware of your file size when posting images here. This is a privately owned and operated site. Large files take up a lot of space and bandwidth. He pays for what we use.

Try to limit your avatar to 50x50. Please remember to keep your signature in check too. Some people don't have broadband connections and must wait 20 minutes for threads to load.

Thank you for keeping that in mind.

Sorry, but it's the bandwidth from photobucket and other such hosting sites that is in fact being used, as mycroft pointed out in the post above yours about bandwidth theft. It doesn't take up extra bandwidth here unless we link from here. The images hosted here use bandwidth. The Blue Sun images and the basic avatars and the little screenshots. Any picture linked to the site in the threads, however, is not using our bandwidth but that site's bandwidth. My avatar and all my images are linked from photobucket, so they are the ones footing the bill, not Haken.
The loading times I will not debate. I have dial-up, and it's crappy dial-up, but I don't mind waiting. It usually doesn't start taking ridiculous amounts of time until the threads get upwards of 100 posts, and that tends to be with or without extra pictures. And even then I don't mind waiting if it's a thread I'm interested in.


Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
