I found that I have to get the picture full screen in Picasa, right click on it, open properties, and copy the address from there.
It works as long as the picture in Picasa is not deleted or desturbed, so the picture itself is not transfered here, only the link to it.

Thats one thing that people forget. If they want the photo to show up here, they have to leave it on the host where they saved it all the time. You only transfer the link to the photo to this bulletin board, not the photo itself.

This is good for one reason in that if we had to also host (otherwise known as save) photos the size of the bulletin board would triple (as would the cost to host it). Not so good thing is that if we did save the photos here it would be forever.

I'm having a problem copying the photo off "Photo Bucket". There used to be a 'image' thing that would pop up on the bottom of the picture you want to post (so you could copy and paste it to the Aeronca site). Doesn't seem to now. Did they change their process or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,

Find out the location of the photo and copy only the location to the post.
