beckett isnt a photo hosting site. if you want to share photos, use something like webshots, imageshack, or photobucket

the only place you can upload a photo on beckett is for your avatar

I'm thinking he may mean for the individual cards. On the old site you could upload a picture on a Card's page, then check the gallery and make sure it posted. However, here, after you upload a card, there is nothing telling you if the upload took. He also could mean he can't upload pictures in the attachment part of the forum. I'd still prefer people use the IMG code:

Code:
[IMG]http://webaddress[/IMG]

when people use the img code, it usually means they arent using a photo hosting site, but rather linking stuff off the net. a lot of forums actually disallow that code for that very reason

This is the direct link from Photobucket for my signature:

Code:
<a href="http://s647.photobucket.com/albums/uu194/XstreamsCollection/?action=view&amp;current=1.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i647.photobucket.com/albums/uu194/XstreamsCollection/1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

This is the box, right below the direct link, that says IMG code:

Code:
[IMG]http://i647.photobucket.com/albums/uu194/XstreamsCollection/1.jpg[/IMG]

I guess it all really depends on poster's preference.

The detail page for each individual card has an "Upload Image" button. Click it and you are given a choice of "Front" or "Back" and a Browse button to point to the img file.

When things are working right images you upload from your Organize will become the photo that shows in your organize and when you trade your card.

Beckett will be able to approve any of these uploads to become the "Stock" image for cards we don't already have pictures of.

I have uploaded an image but it does not show up when I click organize. It only shows up after I click where the picture should be. How long does it take to show up in my Organize? How long does it take for Beckett to approve an upload to become a "Stock" image? Thanks
