When the photo is copied from my hosting site I return to Baccus, click on the picture icon;  the URL box has the cursor in it. I then bring up the menu which includes paste, and click on paste. The string of  code appears in the URL box and I then click on ok and the picture appears. I then post and it seems to be automatically the right fit.

Photobucket is now demanding payment before you can post to another site. I initially paid before this happened just to get rid of adverts and to enable things to move more smoothly. Recently photobucket took my annual subscription (about £30) and I can still post. They do not seem to be demanding as much as their ads suggest, maybe because I only post a few dozen photos a year. Anyway it still works.

I use Dropbox to upload pictures/files to then post elsewhere. It's free. Don't pay a penny. 


Through the travail of the ages Midst the pomp and toil of war Have I fought and strove and perished Countless times upon this star.
So as through a glass and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names but always me.
So forever in the future Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter But to die again once more.

Yes, there is a great deal of smugness about this, but it is never followed by............AND THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT.
