Posting an Image on HyperScale Forums Using Photobucket

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:
Email & IM
Direct link (this is the one you want)
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.
