I use Photobucket to load all my pic’s on LJ . If I start a blog the pictures come out with about 25 percent missing on the right hand side. but if I do a Projects page my pictures come out in full. Is there some where that I can get a tutorial on posting pic’s on Lumberjocks

Whenever you decide to Post as here, you’ll see in the middle of the Beige Top Header “pictures and video friendly”.

If you click on that it will take you here which is a Very Lengthy Tutorial about “Embedding Pictures” that covers the entire Site. Directions for Photbucket are also in there and will take you to Photobucket for their tutorial.

ALL of your photos for the Section, “Projects” ie. New Woodworking Projects, can be downloaded Directly from your Computer.They don’t have to come from Photobucket. I find it much easier doing it that way.

It sounds to me like you are Uploading Pictures to Photobucket using to Large of a Format. I have an account there also.

Going from memory…when you are on the PhotoBucket page where the block that you click on, says “Upload Images and Videos”, notice to the Lower Right and just below in Small Print, I think it says..”more options”. (EDIT: It Does, Just Checked)

When you click on that it opens a page with a “Bunch” of sizes shown from little wee ones to Large Computer Screen Sizes. You click on one of the Radio Buttons to choose your size. I Upload ALL of my Pictures for LJ’s at “Large 640×480”. Then click “Save” at the bottom of the page. That takes you back to the “Upload Page”.

(EDIT: Sizes, 7 Available from “Tiny 100×175” to “1 Megabyte File Size” HUGE!! “Large 640×480” is in Gray as Default size, but check it anyway.)

NOTE: You can always Downsize your Picture once it’s on Photobucket, but to the best of my knowledge you Cannot Upsize an existing Photo on there.

Once you click on “Upload etc.” it will Automatically take you to probably “My Pictures” on Your Computer or you can choose whatever file you want once you’re there. One click on the picture of your choice will start the Upload and take you back to Photobucket. Title it, Save it, File it, DONE!

OH! “Upload” it into the “File” on Photobucket that you want it to be in. If you have more than one set up. Moving it later is a Pain in the A…. UMMM …BUTT ;-} Screw It… ASS!!

Think I’m getting to wordy here and there is more but it’s 5:40 AM. Time for some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s.

Hope it helps. Let me know if not.

PS: JEEEZ I ain’t never gonna get to bed! Just had a look at your “Bowl Blog” and Picture. I “Investigated” the size of that picture when you “Uploaded” it to The Bucket. It’s 1024×768!!!!!!! That will Completely Fill a 17” Computer Screen! It’s the Second Largest Size The Bucket has. Down Baby Down!!!! ...LOL…

It’s fitting into “Projects” because Martin has an Auto Re-Sizer that handles that in Projects. Why didn’t I just do that in the first place?????

Well …..Arizona is Far Far away from Toronto, Canada so there’s no sense yelling at you all. HA!
