How do I insert a slide show?

I can’t seem to find out how to insert a photobucket slide show into a post.

I tried inserting it using the standard pic insert tool, but it won’t work…

Anybody know how?

No one, after lighting a lamp, puts it away in a cellar nor under a basket, but on the lampstand, so that those who enter may see the light.

So it works using just the photobucket ‘HTML imbed’ code/link…without using the BLF ‘Insert Image’ function…but I’m not sure I like the look…what do you think for reviews?

It looks good to me!

Are you paying $400/year to hotlink PhotoBucket images?

Looks good krono. Not to quick for these old eyes to pick up whats in the picture.

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.

Violins? Like some of the Swiss watch videos I guess. Cello is more my taste Cool

I find that looking at pics piled on top of pics (regular pic insertion tool) to be a little tiresome…maybe I’m just bored with it.

However…I wonder if others might find it tedious for pics to load on a slideshow.

So…what do you prefer… slideshows or stacked pics for reviews?

I prefer stacked pics as well, actually. Among other things, you can see related pics like beamshots side by side and compare without waiting for animated GIFs to cycle or clicking on slideshow thumbnails to jump back and forth.

Stacked pics also make it easier for people to get a link to a specific image that they want to reference in a later post, or even in a different thread.

Finally, this thread has raised an important point: not all browsers support slideshows and similar script-based viewing systems. My browser accessibility settings are absolutely draconian (I’m legally blind), so most of these things fail for me. I was actually quite surprised that this one worked!
