I have a load of photos on what used to be a Picasaweb host, now calling itself  "googleusercontent"  I just right click on the image and select "Copy image location" then paste that between img /img markers



I can do the same with images that come up on a Google image search and on some other sites

Getting round the issue is tricky.  Photobucket only gives you a very limit amount of embedded pictures, that or you need to pay them $599.99 a year :veryangry:

Flickr will allow you to embed with BB code as long as you advertise this fact.  IE that get upset if you don't use there BB code.

I'm unsure as to why one image will work but two won't.  Logic would dictate that if one image's BB code works that more that one set of BB code will work.

Any ideas people.

I suspect it may be that repeating the BBcode or embedding tags repeats the javascript or some other element that upsets the forum.  Would need to try further experiments.
