Default Linking Car Domain and Photobucket Pictures

I found a way to link your cardomain pictures to your photobucket pictures. If you use the type of link below, you only have to upload the pictures to photobucket, not both to show them on here and on your page. This also keeps cardomain from limiting the size and quality of the pictures you upload. Here is how to do the links from photobucket.com to cardomain.

Picture on the left:
<left>
[img] photobucket link here[/img]
</left>

Pictures on the right:
<right>
[img] photobucket link here[/img]
</right>

Pictures Centered:
<center>
[img] photobucket link here[/img]
</center>

If you click and select the pictures you want to use from photobucket, you can get the links all at one time by clicking the generate html and img code at the bottom of photobucket. Then, use the part where it says " HTML images for Ebay, Livejournal, MySpace, etc." and delete

from the end of each one. This will let you set your page up like i did: http://www.cardomain.com/ride/661787/2

This is how it works....
Here is an example link and i would show the result but HTML is disabled:




Here is my cardomain page using photobucket (only the page i give you the link to has it done yet).http://www.cardomain.com/ride/661787/2

i just got the idea, and tried it, then it worked. The quality is no where near what photobucket gives you. You can also have any size picture you want, i resized mine by 75% twice to get that size.

no, you are doing it right. The picture should still show up if you visit your page. It didnt show that to me until today. They updated there site, and now it shows an error but still publishes it. It still works, just view your page.

Whoa, you're right. Although I get the error, the pic appears on the page. It'* enormous though... Not thumbnailed like the others.

Sorry, but I was lazy and didn't click on your page link but are yours full sized too?
