Question Help with photobucket

I have an photobucket album with 450 photos, but I don't know where to go find the URL so I can upload them in a bulk to this forum (Upload File from a URL). In another word, how do I use the "upload file from a URL" box? Can someone guide me through it? Thanks!

Open one of the photos and the user options are listed on the righthand side. Copy & paste. g/l

I am trying to upload more than one photo at a time (bulk), shouldn't I turn organize on, then select the photos then click link at the bottom of the page and then copy the URL (for forum boards)?

But when I try to paste it and upload it to e90post it would says error.

Just paste the URLs directly into the message block/thread you're starting. Not into the computer uploads.

I did but it says error. Please take a look at my first post, I uploaded a screenshot. I just don't know which URL I should copy from photobucket when I try to upload more than 1 photo under 1 URL link...

How to Share an Album from Photobucket

Hey All,
This is Russ from Photobucket. I heard your question about wanting to share lots of photos from Photobucket. I think I can help.
You mentioned the number of photos you want to share is in the 400's, but that you were concerned about bandwidth usage. If you link all of your photos to E90, meaning that they display within the E90 forum, then you will incur data usage towards your bandwidth limit. The way you can avoid this is to simply post a link to your Photobucket album that directs viewers away from E90, which might not be ideal, but 400+ photos is a lot, so this might be the only realistic way to share them all.
Here is how you share an entire album:
Simply open the album by selecting it from the left hand menu of your Photobucket account. On the right hand side there is a menu that says Links to share this album. Click the one that says Email & IM and it will copy automatically. Then paste the link into your post so others can follow it.
Here is a screenshot so you know what to look for:

And just so you can see how it works, here is the link to an album I created:
http://s365.photobucket.com/user/pho...Public%20Album
One thing to keep in mind, though. Make sure the album you are sharing is public, otherwise the link will lead to screen saying the album is private or password protected and E90 users won't be able to see it.
Now, if you want to post individual photos to E90 form Photobucket, just follow these steps:

Step number one: Get a free Photobucket account here.

Step number two: Upload your photos to your new Photobucket account.

Step number three: Post your photo into a forum thread. There are two ways to do this, and with Photobucket, they only require one click apiece.

The first way is to use the “Insert Photo” button in the toolbar when you create a new thread or response.
First, find the photo on Photobucket in a new tab or window, locate the “Links to share this photo” box to the right of the image, and simply click on the bottom option, labeled “Direct”. Photobucket automatically copies the code for you, so there’s no need to right click and select copy from a menu.
Next, open a new thread or response in the forum and click on the Insert Image button. A new dialogue box will appear asking you to enter the URL address for the photo. Simply paste the info you grabbed from Photobucket into the dialogue box and you’re done. Easy.


The other way to post a photo is to skip the Insert Photo button and just use the BBCode, or IMG Code. Find the photo on Photobucket that you want to link to. Then, in the “Links to share this photo” box to the right of the photo, simply click on the third option from the top, labeled “IMG”. This is already written in the BBCode your forum requires, so just paste it right into the text of the thread you are creating, and presto!


I hope this was helpful. If you have any other questions, please send them my way.
