No, it didn't!

I had trouble with photos when I started posting as well.

I use Photobucket, too, so hopefully I can help you out.

Do you see, to the right of the image, when in Photobucket, where it says "share links"? If so, copy the image by clicking on the bottom link, the one that says IMG. Then paste it onto the thread you started here.

It took me a bit to figure it all out, as well!

Good luck,

-Bill

This is an instruction I wrote a while back, you should have no trouble posting as many images to a thread as you want if you follow the step by step.

Are you having a hard time trying to post a picture :doh:

Many new members have issues when they wish to post a picture to a thread. I will try to make this as simple as I can by using one on-line photo storage site 'Photo Bucket' as the example.

1. Type Photo Bucket into your search engine; Goggle, etc.

2. Find the Photo Bucket web hosting site and register to open an account.

3. Follow the instructions for 'uploading' to the new Photo Bucket album. I like to copy the pictures to my desktop and then upload from 'desktop' on the photo bucket up-loader menu. Once you have this figured out and it's not at all complicated, you will have an album.

4. When you want to paste an image into a thread you will need to have the forum open and your Photo Bucket album open on a different 'Tab' or 'Window'. If you don't understand 'Tabs' then you will need to do some study about Microsoft Windows and learn to use tabs to run multiple web pages at the same time.

5. Assuming you have both sites loaded and you are logged in on both; it's time to create your thread here. Place your cursor where you will want the photo inserted and then go to the Photo Bucket Tab.

6. When you slide the cursor over any of your pictures the image will change its display. It will look sort of like a 35 mm slide and there will be an icon in the upper right of your image. When you put your cursor over this it will drop down a menu. Choose 'Get Links' from the menu.

7. When the box which will have the image URL in it appears, click the url link and the word 'copied' will flash. You are almost done! Close the link box using the X in the upper right corner and...................

8 Return to the forum page where you left your text and check to be sure the cursor is blinking right where you want the image to appear. Now slide your mouse cursor to that spot and Right Click. When the menu box drops down select 'Paste'. You will see all of the url information for your picture transfer appear on the thread. Now click 'Preview Post' to be sure you got it right.

9. Lets repeat that; what you'll see is the url information from photo bucket where you have pasted the image. Now choose to either preview the thread if it is a new one you are starting or 'Go Advanced' if you are posting photos to an existing thread. If the image is there you are done, congratulations you've posted a picture. You can place multiple images into a thread simply by repeating the steps that got the first one done for you.

10. I hope that was easy for you, I figured that one out years ago and had never heard of a 'Photo Bucket' either.

You may now thank me :D

Thank you Ard, I think I had a privacy setting on Photobucket that prevented it initially. Cheers

Nice of you to help out, audax!

coldhands- I'd say you're well on your way to tying a great fly...

With some tweaking, and a more appropriate hook, you'll be there shortly!

Hey coldhands,

I'm not quite sure what you mean by that!?!

What I was alluding to, was the choice of hook "style" for a Spey. In this case, a mighty fine go at, what I'm assuming, is a Lady Caroline.

There are certain proportions to different ties that make them more appealing to both the fisherman and the fish. The choice of a hook has a lot to with that. Obviously, skills with feathers, floss, tinsel, and such play a major part, as well.

You are most definitely heading in the right direction. Enjoy the ride!
