I think I understand the rules but I have a little problem.
If I find a photo, I can post the link to this photo, right? But what can I do if I find a very pretty pic of Stephanie although I was looking for a photo of Caroline and I have no idea where I can post this photo? And some days later, I find a threat where I could post Stephanie's photo but I can't find it anymore . . . I mean, is it possible to keep photos save?
Maybe this question is a bit stupid but I'm not computer literate
Hope you can help me

If you have an account at a photo-hosting site like Photobucket, you can save photos there and then post a link to the photos in your post here. That means that you can store your photo of Stephanie when you see it, and it'll be in your Photobucket album for when you might need it later. However, the photo-hosting sites have their own rules about saving copyrighted photos, so you need to be aware of what they allow and what they don't allow.

Otherwise, if you find a photo of Stephanie and don't have anywhere to post it but you think you might want to post it in the future, you can save the URL of the page in your bookmarks (maybe in a folder labelled Monaco photos or something) so you know where to find it later.

Whether pics are posted as small thumbnails or full size they are still subject to the copyright law unless you have taken them yourself or have the written permission of the copyright owner to reproduce them.

As copyrighted images cannot be posted directly in the Forums you must use the url link to the hosting site or website.

For the ins and outs of pic posting and copyright, please see Member FAQs.

How do you get this option?

I guess you're asking about creating thumbnails in Photobucket? If so, here's the trick...

1. Click the little square box next to the caption under the image (a red border will appear around the image, or any images that have been ticked)
2. Scroll to the bottom and tick 'Seclect/unselect all'
3. Now click on 'Generate HTML and IMG code'
this will take you to a new screen with 5 different codes for different purposes.
4. Copy the 'IMG clickable thumbnails for message boards - recommended' line(s) of code
5. Paste the code into the thread.

Voila! A thumbnail!

Keep in mind that copyrighted images cannot be reproduced in the Forums in any form, including thumbnails.
Members can be directed to copyrighted images via links to the original source, or to image-hosting sites.

Let's say I go on Corbis or Getty or one of those sights with 3 trillion pictures on it and find a couple of pictures of my favorite royal, Princess X. I'd love to post these pictures in one of Princess X's threads. I know you need to get ImageShack or Tiny Pic or something like that, and I know how to work that out fine. What I'm nervous about is copyright laws. Would the copyright be Corbis/Getty etc., or the photographer, or something else? And how would I contact the person to see if I could use the image of Princess X?

Edit: I know this question is probably answered a thousand times on here, but unfortunately I couldn't find it anywhere.

Don't worry about asking; it's a fairly complicated (and from our point of view fairly annoying) business. If you're going to get an ImageShack account and post your photos as links to your album at ImageShack, we don't require any sort of copyright statement or anything of the sort.

However, as a member of ImageShack (as opposed to a member of TRF), you'll have signed up to their rules and terms of service, and you'll probably find that they don't allow people to store copyrighted photos in their albums. They don't police their members' accounts to look for violations, but they'd tell people to remove copyrighted photos if a copyright owner complained about individual cases.

Our recommendation is for our members to post links to the original source (the page at Getty or Corbis with the photo). However, knowing that some of these photos don't last very long at those photo-agency sites and knowing that some of our members like to store the photos in their ImageShack albums, we do allow links to ImageShack and other hosting-site album pages. Strictly speaking, if you want to take a photo from Getty or Corbis and put it in your album at ImageShack, you need permission from Getty and/or the photographer. However, as you can see from looking at ImageShack albums, that isn't something which people tend to do, and it isn't something that anybody tends to get particularly upset about.

As far as TRF is concerned, you only need to get permission from the copyright holder (usually the photographer, but sometimes the agency will share or hold the copyright) if you're planning to post the photo itself in the threads. The chances are that the agencies wouldn't grant permission anyway for someone to take one of their photos and stick it into a thread in an open-access forum like this, and even if they did, it costs a fair bit of money (I've heard something like a couple of hundred dollars per photo). If you're just posting a link, you don't need to get permission.

If you want to stay within the letter and the spirit of the copyright law, you're best off just posting links to the pages at Corbis or Getty. But links to copyrighted photos at hosting sites like ImageShack are very common all over the Web, in articles, blogs, forum posts, and so on, and most of the time it isn't a problem.

If I go on ANP and find a good picture, can I just post the link of the picture, or is that hotlinking? And does it go with copyright rules, since the link is to ANP?

If you go to my Photobucket album and post this (a photo I have the photographer's permission to post, btw, so there's no copyright infringement here as long as I'm the one posting it)



you're hotlinking, since it comes from someone else's website (i.e., mine).

If you post it this way, as a link

http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f2...ts/Queen_3.jpg

you aren't hotlinking.

I'm not sure if this question goes in this thread or the how to post pictures thread, but it does deal with Photobook.

I have a Photobook account. I store favorite pictures that I enjoy looking at in there, or if I really, really, really want to post something and it's virtually impossible to do it from the original source (I try to go with the original source as much as possibly possible). But, the problem is, I can't get it to stop going to my album. It's hard to explain, but this is what I mean.

http://i116.photobucket.com/albums/o...nitowaving.jpg This is a picture that crisinaki posted, I don't know who's album it's from, but all you can see is the picture.

5887424.jpg - Image - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting This is a picture from MY album, and it's still got all the distracting photobucket stuff, etc. Maybe my obsessive-compulsive tendencies are just coming out now, but is there a way that I can make it look like the album of the picture above?

Copy the "direct link" to get the looks of the 1st link you posted.

How can I post pictures, so instead of having to post the entire link, I can just say "Like this one here", and clicking here would take you to the link?

You need to copy the link as though you were going to post it in full.

Then you type "like this one here"

Highlight "here"

Click on the little globe symbol above the dialogue box and you'll get a small window saying "hyperlink" with a couple of boxes. The top box says "Type" and the default is http, which is the one you'll need. The bottom box says URL, and it says http://.

Delete the http:// from the bottom box if your saved link already contains it (which it usually does), paste the link into the box, and click OK. It should automatically replace "here" with a link.

To do it manually, you need the following (without the spaces)

[ url=http://blahblahblah.com ]text you want to highlight[ /url ]

Photobucket Help

I'm an active Photobucket user. However, just recently, as in 10 minutes ago, something happened, and now it has me on "Mobile Photobucket". Everthing is small, like it would be if you used it on a Blackberry or an iPhone. How do I get out of it, because it's driving me crazy! (FYI: this is my home computer).
