    To post pictures from Facebook:

    'right click' the picture on facebook you want to post, select 'view image' from this menu.

    Then, get the URL from the address bar, and use this in the URL field when you click the 'image' button in your post editor.

    Yes, it pops up in a little box. It happened like 3 times the morning I posted my thread and I was already leaving later than i wanted to and I tried again just now and got the same error box. (Sorry about that by the way!) I was able to select the "image code" option at photobucket and paste it directly into here and it displayed the image. I was just worried that it was too big and i was going to get in trouble

    Am I allowed to use the image code like that? Or does it do something bad? like take up a lot of space or something.

    It should be fine, test it out in this thread. You SHOULD be using the 'direct link' option from photobucket though, and pasting that into the box. But if image code works too, then that's fine.

    It should also automatically be resized if it is in fact too big.
