I'm sure this is an acceptable place for this post. If you mods feel there should be a more grand location for this, I totally understand.
   It's very frustrating that we have so many helpful walk-through's, repairs, how to's, reviews, mods, etc. that "use to" have so many helpful pictures. A lot of people can't just envision the details on how to do something without pics. It's not only this forum I see it on so many various other forums that photobucket completely ruined.
   So here is a simple hack to solve the default pic that PB used for all those helpful threads with pictures.

Go to your post.

Hit "modify", go to the URL string for the image and where it ends with "jpeg" simply type in

"~original"

right after jpeg, so it will now read "jpeg~original" (no quotes of course) then hit "save"

Here is a thread of mine that was ruined by PB and I did this to the top pic. I didn't do it to the rest yet so you guys can see the magic of a couple words. Not sure how long this will work for or if they will catch on? I feel they will probably be going out of business soon. In the mean time I encourage any helpful threads all y'all have to do this to. So to help all future air-gunners, motorcyclist, powder burners, machinist, whatever other sites you guys are goofing with.

When PhotoBucket decided to hold my pics hostage a few years ago I saved my pics to a couple CDs, deleted my PB account, opened new free photo hosting account and saved the photos from the CD to the new site.
The replacement for PB was imgur.

Imgur without any warning closed my account. Upon further inquiry, I come to find out that my graphic hunting photos were a violation to their policy. Ok, fine......but, what annoys me was the zero communications prior to permanently shutting down my account.

Yeah sorry, still can't get it to work - as soon as I hit the Submit button after "trying" to create a new album on GTA (not sure what I'm doing wrong), it comes back as "Database Error" for some reason and to contact forum admin.

Oh well for now I could just put all pics along the bottom like I do now.  ;)

Still having trouble. This computer is just plain cantankerous. I emailed a photo from my cell phone to the computer. That worked. Then I downloaded and saved the photo and put the photo in a folder in the documents part. That worked. When I tried to attach the photo to a GTA reply it said the attachment was to big or took too long to load. Tomorrow is another day.

Do you know where to look for the file size?

The BEST way to add photos is to upload them to a free storage website and use the link they assign a photo to Insert Image into a post.
Revelation 760 PumpMaster (Vintage 1967)
Powerline 1000S .177 (semi-tuned by me & innards by kiwi Pete)
Benjamin Super Streak .177/.22 (converted to NP & w/GRT-III)
Weihrauch HW97K .177
Benjamin Trail NP XL1100 (home tuned by muwah with Tuna trigger)
Stoeger X-20 RAMmed by Gene and Tuna trigger

Hugh, as you have read from all these posts, there are multiple ways to upload a picture onto a GTA post. It can be very difficult if you are not technologically savvy.
I would say the best way to learn is hands-on. If you can get a technologically savvy individual (typically a young person) that can show this to you, it'll be significantly easier. Once you see it done, it will much, much clearer than trying to decipher word instructions.
Also, nearly every phone and computer software is set up slightly different, so it's unlikely anyone can give you the exact step by step instructions. You being from NZ, chances are your software is going to be slightly different from those of us from the USA.
