Posting an Image on HyperScale Forums Using Photobucket

by Michael McMurtrey

 Special Hobby's 1/72 scale Beaufort Mk.VIII will be available online from Squadron.com



This question repeatedly comes up: How do I post an image in a Hyperscale message? Here's how to do it.

This assumes you have a Photobucket account.

  • Open a new message in Hyperscale.

  • Open a new tab in your browser and in that tab, open your Photobucket album.

  • Position your cursor over the thumbnail of the image you wish to post. A new, auxiliary window will open around the thumbnail. Below the thumbnail you will see the label "Share/Copy" and below that four options:

    1. Email & IM

    2. Direct link (this is the one you want)

    3. HTML code

    4. IMG code

    Here is what it looks like on my computer. Note that I have two tabs open in my browser: one for Hyperscale's "Jet Age" forum, and the other for my Photobucket account. I'm about to post the "Blue Goose" image:


  • Next to each of these options you'll see a window with some code or a URL in it. Position your cursor in the window adjacent to the "Direct link" label - the code inside starts with 'http' - and click in it. You should see the Direct link replaced with "Copied."

  • Now return to your Hyperscale post. Position your cursor where you want the image to go and use the "Paste" command (control-v or apple/command-v) to paste the code you just copied.

  • Repeat as necessary if you have more than one image.

I hope this helps. Once you get the hang of it, it's easy.
