Here's a video on how to post photos using your smartphone and the Photobucket app:

 

 

to post videos, upload them to Youtube and then click the "share" link.  Copy the URL (the short one is fine) like this one:

 

 

 

and just paste it into your reply where you want it.  The software will convert it into a video that's playable in the topic.  For example, when the link above is copied and pasted into a topic, it will render this video after the reply is posted:

Well try it the basic way. Upload pic to computer then from computer to photobucket. Then in photobucket click on the uploaded image, click on "share " then click on "get Links" then "img " (which should copy img link to clip board or you can highlight link and copy it) then paste the link here. If you cannot do this then the following may be instructive .......

OK, I'm a little lost.

 

How do you upload pictures, small ones less than 200k, to your post?  Is there a size limit?

 

Not from smartphone, but from laptop or desktop hard drive.

 

Preferably not from photobucket, although I just created an account.

 

Tried to use DA's approach from above, but did not seem to apply now on photobucket.

 

Help is greatly appreciated.

I think this will work. I once saw it on a cartoon.

Or, on the other hand.....

Troubleshooting the appliance's complex electro-mechanical systems is the methodology in which one must, by using analyitical techniques and the process of elimination, determine the cause or causes of a specific failure. Rarely does this cause of a failure directly present itself for you to see.

So.....

To be better equipped to troubleshoot, you will need:

1.) To follow this: Safety first and foremost. Trust your instincts.
2.) Basic hand tools.
3.) A decent DVOM meter. Buy one. Borrow one. You need one.
4.) Last, but certainty not least, common sense. Most of us have it. Slow down and use it.

Now, let's have some fun!

Found one of the boss' videos (for the smart phone / photo bucket) and fingered it out.

 

Not bad, quite easy actually.

Oh, I've been trying to figure it out, had to google some other things, just went to a online calculator, getting closer, still have to think about, gig, kb,mb and BS.. lol and get it in my head, jpeg, stay up all night using contraptions, and then when I get to work on appliances I miss how wires are suppose to be routed.. Thanks for your assistance, I forget at times what I was looking for, and have to get back around to it.  We do learn better when we have to figure at least some of it own our own, with a nice push, or point in a direction..

A calculator??I think if I looked at that, my head would explode.

 

Man, it ain't that complicated. From the link provided above...

 

"640x480 - This is the low end on most "real" cameras. This resolution is ideal for e-mailing pictures or posting pictures on a Web site"

 

On a phone you can even    go lower.... say 320 x 240            

 

A caculator?  I just gotta take a look at that..... oh my... you gotta be kidding..... Exploding%20Smiley_zpsjqphqngg.gif

I set my camara to a 1.3 settin and still shot over the 500. limit I just wanted to know how to get under the limit. The more I read the more complicated it got, but if I put the pixel in the calculator it showed me how much data is used, that is what I needed to know. There are people out here that have no Idea how a smart phone works, I just bought my first one a year ago, the rest are afraid to buy one they cant figure it out, I have not been with the program of technology for several years, some pick it fast and natural, I AIN"T one of them type, I am a slow learner, not the dumbest rock in the box but i aint the sharpest either..

It's nothing to learn..... most websites say use 320 or 640 to post.... youtube tells you their limit for videos as well.... these are common conventions. My dad doesn't know how a smart phone works. He's 85 with an iphone... he wanted to send pictures to his girlfriend and my sister told him to set it to 640...he did... viola . No understanding of smartphone needed.

An important key is also knowing what you don't need to know. Now if you are doing it to increase your understanding, then great. But if you are trying to resolve a simple problem, all you needed to know is what setting is used for websites.... the link I provided tells you. Pixel calculation, screen size and formulas become more unnecessary crap to heap on all the other stuff you must learn for appliance repair.
