I’m using PhotoBucket in order to post photos in my blog entries. However, only part of the photo is visible such as the following:

about half of the picture cuts off to the right. How do I fix/prevent this?

Crop the photos to no more than 800 pixels wide before you post them on PhotoBucket. Then when you link them to your blog they won’t be cut off.

I’m having the same problem. I took the picture at 640×480 pixels, and it crops off the right hand side of the photo.

I resized it using the photobucket editing, sized it down to 75%. Same thing.

I used to know how to do these things, but every time they update things I have to start over.
