To post images on the chat forum, resize the image you wish to post as a jpeg at about 600x400pixels.
Windows users proceed as follows:
1/ Open post message section.
2/ Write the relevant details/text.
3/ Log in to Photobucket at the bottom of the window. If you have not already done so, you will first need to create and account.
4/ Left click on browse to find the image on your computer.
5/ Find the image you want to upload, select it and left click 'open'.
6/ So doing will transfer it to browse box.
7/ Left click upload.
8/ When you see the thumbnail of the image you wish to post appear in your Photobucket gallery, place your cursor over URL box and left click mouse, you will see briefly the word 'copied' appear then disappear,if not right click and select 'copy' from your sub menu that appears.
9/ Move your cursor below the text in the message box, right click and then left click 'paste' from sub menu that appears, you will then see just the URL description appear, not your photo.
10/ Left click preview to view and confirm picture and message is as you require.
11/ Left click post, this will transfer your message to the forum and your photo will also appear ..........
One point to note: the URL box always defaults to the latest/last image uploaded. To select another from your Photobucket gallery display, just left click on the thumbnail of required image and it will place its URL in the URL box and proceed as above.

1. Resize. Starting from within Nikon Picture Project (circa 2000) there seems no resize option, but I managed to do it by selecting the (thumbnail) image, then select (Windows) File, then select Export jpeg. The default destination My Pictures was fine for me and it offers 640 x 480 as a size.
2. Here's a Photobucket catch. Your instruction '4/ Left click on browse to find the image on your computer' gives me a Windows window with MY This and My That but NOT My Pictures (which surprised me). I had to copy the resized pictures into My Documents whereupon instruction 5/ etc worked fine.
Many thanks, 'H'
