For those of you who's build and other threads have been completely destroyed by Photobucket's antics (see thread here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6899 ), there is a way to fix your pics that, for the time, seems to work well.
Here's how to do it:

1) click "edit" at the bottom right of the post you want to fix
2) in the post edit window, find the text for the image, it should look something like this:

3)Near the end of the image text, you should see "jpg[/Img]". Modify that section of text by adding "~original" between "jpg" and "[Img]", it should look like this:

4) Modify all images as above and save your edits.

5) during the process, if you want to check that it's working before saving, hit "preview" and if you did it correctly they should now show in the preview

6) i did this on 50-something pages of my 55 thread, it goes pretty fast if you get the "~original" copied to your clipboard, all you have to do then is past it into the appropriate locations.

BTW, going forward, please attach photos in New posts, someday the Photobucket fix will probably stop working. See there thread here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6432 for instructions on uploading and posting pictures. Note, the board automatically resizes the pics for you, you can upload full size pics right into your post from your phone and they will display with a max width of 800 pixels. :ugeek:
