PhotoBucket

I was on a web site forum this weekend & was told to put a photograph in my PhotoBucket to send it in to the forum. I've looked in all my books & done the PC Adviser search to no avail. Does anyone know what this is & how I go about getting it? I'm beginning to think someone is playing a joke on me.

Many thanks.

click here Photobucket is an online image hosting site you create an account that you can upload pics to and then you can post a link to them.

It is free

Google gives a host of alternatives click here= They all seem to refer to a web site intermediary to store and forward images.

Thanks Completealias, dogbreath1 & Diemmess.
I must confess Diemmess I didn't think of looking on Google; must be the weather. I can't understand why you need a Photobucket though, surely it's just as easy to email from your computer? Anyway I'll join if that's the proper way to do it.

The reason why you cannot email it from your computer is because the forum will want to limit the strain on their server by getting you to deposit your linked images elsewhere. By creating a link in a post to an image on this other server, they remain accessible at all times to those who view your post.

Thanks dogbreath1 - now I've finally got it. It's all so complicated, but rather amazing!!!
