Totally agree.   :veryangry:

Was quite happy with the old version - Why do people keep adding useless upgrades to a prg and 'hide' or remove the stuff we want and regularly use.   :veryangry:
 
Google has done just the same. Will do some looking for other alternatives.   :computerangry:

 I agree too, the new version is not intuitive or user friendly.

Forgive me but I have no idea what any of you are talking about. I just put my pix on here one at a time using the protocol I've been told. It gets very tedious putting them on one at a time and typing in the same stuff except for the photo number, and I was going to ask soon if there was a way of putting say, six photos on your thread at once and typing notes between them.

But now I see this flareup on this thread about Photobucket.

Here you lose me. It seems important, though, judging by the beefs.

Agree , we were GOOGLED just before I left for the UK with the new version of hotmail, Mrs H was less than impressed. However at least you can revert to the old version, not the same with photobucket (almost worth a dodgy anagram now). :veryangry:
Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Can somebody help me. please?  Don't want to go to Photobucket, especially if it's been 'improved'.  Can I find the IMG code on a photo in my own album, not on the Forum, so I can either put it on the Forum or into a post?  Pretty Please?

You will need to upload the photo to Photobucket, Flickr or to the Media Gallery in the NGF forum to enable your photo to be viewed.

There are instructions (and a vid) on how to upload to the Media Gallery in the Help section (on the menu bar). If you are uploading to the forum, ensure that your files are 500kb or less otherwise they might not load :(  Ignore that the software states that you can upload files up to 30Mb  :no: - this is a lie!! If you are unsure how to resize the images, there is also some guidance in the Help section.

Hope this helps

Surely not totally true ?

Not a single one of my images are located on any of these areas - yet are visible.  All you need do if you don't use these is have some web-space as part of your internet package or other reason, create a folder there (such as "n-images"), put the images in there with a suitable name and then post the link within the IMG tags ?

I think you'll find that these were helpful suggestions without trying to over complicate the process.  Although, you are quite right of course.  :)
