I found it okay - if you click on each photo you can see it.

Alternatively you can post them by using this method - viewtopic.php?f=32&t=2660

Use the IMG code so you simply click on the 5th box in photobucket for IMG code and it automatically copies the code. You go on here and Ctrl and V (or right click and paste) the code like below without the quotations "" and when you submit your post the photo will appear as below

Hi carlen222! After our blether last night I viewed your Mum's old postcards on your facebook. What absolute treasures they are. A big thank you to your Mum (and you) for sharing these. Wonderful wonderful pics.

You need to resize them to less than 800 wide by 600 high - 700 is ideal width. You have the option to resize in photobucket by editing the photo and changing and overwriting the original.

Alternatively you can can edit them to this size before uploading.

Must admit is the modern era there should be an easier way! :-)
