Ever had a large picture that you wanted to post, but been put off by the thought that it would overpower the rest of your post? It's possible to post a small preview of your picture, which links to the larger image. Click on the picture below to see what happens.



In order to do this, you will need to upload your picture twice - one at the original size, and one edited to a smaller size.

1. Open the URL tag, but replace the ] with =
2. Copy the URL of your larger picture, and paste it after =
3. Replace the ] at the end of the web address
4. Copy the IMG tag of your smaller picture, and paste it after the ]
5. Close the URL tag

You will end up with something similar to the following (but without the spaces)

[ url = larger picture web address ] [ img ] smaller picture [ /img ] [ /url ]

There is now an easier way to post clickable thumbnails from Photobucket.

1. Open up the image that you want to post.
2. Hover over the image, and when you see the options at the top, click on 'Share'.
3. A box will open up with several options along the top - click on 'Get Link Code'.
4. The second option from the bottom is 'Clickable thumbnail' - copy this text, and paste it into your post.
