Default An IMGUR ouestion.

I have been trying to upload pictures on IMGUR but when I try a window pops up wanting me to type some numbers but I can't find a button to click on. Have you guys got any advice to help me out?

Thanks

I do have a PB account but I don't like it. About the cookies I don't know. I just don't know enough about computers.

I don't use photobucket, I use Flickr but I'll try to help.
You are probably referring to a "captcha". It generally wants a user to enter numbers or characters, to prove that you're human and not a "bot" - a computer robot that scours the net for anything and everything.

Make sure you are using the latest version of your browser, for starters. What browser are you using and what device; laptop, iPad, phone, etc?

If you don't like Photobucket you could try Flickr - I've been using it for years and have had no problem with it. flickr.com

After entering the numbers (as has been said it's a captcha to stop bots faking responses) hit the return key. On many web 'forms' it accepts the return key as if you hit an ok or submit button.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

I joined Flickr and downed loaded a few pictures. I have been trying to figure out how to delete pictures or post pictures to forums like this one. Flickr seems to be very fast in downloading and I like that.

store them on your drive...
add a system of redundant back up..
external drives are cheap....

drag and drop to the post...
doesn't get any simpler than that...

Hi Don - glad that worked for you. If you're interested, my flickr page is at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/d90slr

Not sure if you're asking a question or figured out the sharing aspect. Just in case...

The way I would share my Flickr pictures to a forum like this:

Click on your picture, look for the arrow at bottom that faces right (share picture), when you click on that you have some options. One of them is "grab link". Copy that link, then paste it in your post here/

Vince I got a picture posted here but when I tried to post another it would not let me.

Don, I don't see any uploads in your profile - which thread did you post your picture to?
Not sure if it's a forum restriction or from Flickr. The other way you could do it is, download from Flickr to your computer, then attach the picture from your computer into your post. I don't think there ae any restrictions on adding photos from your computer to the forum.

Or you could bypass all that and just attach the picture from your computer to the post.

See sticks reply above with the attached photo and his instructions.
