Anonymous Links to Photobucket

I needed to post a link to an image on my photobucket account but when it linked it, came up with the photo and by clicking back I could get back to my albums. There's nothing contentious in there but I have seen other images posted on this forum which just came up with the image and no obvious way of getting to the user profile or other photos.
Is this possible with Photobucket or will I have to change to Flickr or somewhere else - please advise.
Many thanks

Which share option did you use?

If you copy and paste the 'direct link' it should only open that image, that has always worked for me including links on these forums.

As Blacjhat says copy the "direct" link, like so.

. . . but it's hardly anonymous. Some really good pics in amongst those 160 you've uploaded hss.

Are you saying that you can view all of hssutton's pics?
Seriously, How did you do that? I just saw the pic of seal and no way to move from that to any other pics.

Even removing the SealPup-1.jpg from url and then pressing Go gave me a

Waiting for the wind, cuba pano, glenmorangie . . .

Obviously not directly from the link, but it's not rocket science. And I'm not logged into photobucket.
Same with Brumas, Graham etcs pics.

I too found it very easy to get to your album.

Your name, included in the linked address, is all that is needed to access your album.

My last post should not have been directed to one member.
