I should be able to find this answer somewhere but I'm learning to ask when I need help.
What's the difference between attaching a pic and linking to a pic with something like photobucket? Is one way "better" than the other? Why do some show up as attachments and others are viewd right in the "body" of the post??
Thanks in advance, I know there's a simple explanation for this.

The photos that show up in the body of the post are hosted elsewhere, on ImageShack or PhotoBucket, etc. The ones that show up as attachments are uploaded to PWA directly in the post and hosted on our own server.

We ask those who can easily do so to host the photos elsewhere. It would just save space and bandwidth on our own server in the long run. But some people have trouble with that, or sometimes you're in a hurry or whatever, and in those cases it's fine to upload the photo as an attachment.

The disadvantage of hosting them elsewhere is that sometimes people clean out or rearrange their PhotoBucket account and the link gets broken. :shock:

Thank you Kitty, for the swift response. I've been wanting a bucket for my photos.
Now, I'll keep trying because I'm stubborn, but how come I can get the text (html -? ) or the link to show up but not the photo?

Possibly because you're not enclosing the photo URL within the Image tag. Either that, or the leprechauns are trying to drive you insane by stealing your pic. (I hate it when they do that.)

Click the "Img" button when writing a post and place your image URL in between the two tags which pop up.

Or you could just write it out manually:
Code:
[img]http://your-photo-place.com/your-image.jpg[/img]

You can also post photos from practically any web site out there without first copying it to your photo hosting account.

This:
Code:
[img]http://www.thinkgeek.com/images/products/front/inigo_montoya.jpg[/img]

will get you this:
