Right click on the image and "save image as" to save it on your computer. Then you can insert the image on your blog, highlight it and add a hyperlink to it. Did that help?

Well, NO...I did as you said, then loaded it into my photobucket, tried every link of insertion they have, and did the hyperlink, and it still links me to my photobucket account...FRUSTRATION is nearing atomic porpotions...I have never had a problem with this before, so i am basically missing something/brain cells...

Okay, I've been there and I KNOW that frustration..believe me. I have WordPress for my blog. If that's what your using, I can walk you through it. I know with WP, that we have what's called "widgets" We have to add a text box and then type in the HTML code in it and save. Voila'! you have a badge in your sidebar. HOWEVER! for those of us that are not HTML literate( i.e. ME!) then, what I do is I do a "Draft" or start a "New Post" I click on my box that looks like a picture directly from my computer and "insert into post". You will then see your badge appear. THEN! I click on the badge, which will highlight it, then click on the little icon that looks like a chain and simply copy and paste the forum address from here into that box. What that will do is link the forum to the badge. THEN!!! I change the setting on the post from "View" to "HTML" it will display HTML in the post box. I copy that and then go to my widgets page, add a text box and paste in the HTML, hit save and then it will display in my sidebar.You don't save the "draft post" you can simply not save it and it will disappear or be saved as a draft if your blog settings have an automatic draft save function. IF your using BLogger, I would either do a search for "How to apply a badge to your sidebar in Blogger" or otherwise, do a forum search for adding badges in Splitcoast Stampers. I know alot of ppl. have had the same problem. HTH!

LOL! I know right??!! I used to have my own paid webhosting space for my website. woo-hoo! that was FUN! NOT!!! LoL I was constantly asking for help and a lot of times, had to resort to "trying" hence the word "trying" to learn HTML. I even bought a book on it.. Now, I have my own paid webhosting through GoDaddy.com. Still doesn't make it any easier...LOL but, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Wordpress. THEY do. I've used them for years now. They have a free blog acct. through Wordpress.com or you can use Wordpress.org through a paid host. I have so many more options with the .org. I do NOT like Blogger. I have an account with them but, only so my pic will show up next to my posts when I post on a blogger site...

You shouldn't need to put it in your Photobucket account at all to get it on your blog. I use Blogspot so if you have that I can help.
