about the "slow loaders" consideration-- where I used to be! Some people still have dial-up if they live in rural areas.
We just got a modest speed DSL (not the really fast one) and it is sooooo much
better. (It was less than half in cost from our old Earthlink dialup!)
But you know too, the link thingy... does not work unless you are logged in.
That is a nice feature in the sense it affords some privacy on the net!
The other place shows one picture posted without a link, and if you put up
more than one, the others go into that link state, in one post, and you have to click on them.
You know , also with photobucket, all you need to do is put [img]link[/img]
on the link..and/or. Photobucket gives you that in a window, and all you need do
is copy/paste it--you don't even have to put the tags in, they do it for you.
The advantage to photobucket is that size and format may be different, than allowed here.
I have never used the link clip or mountain in the tools...I'll have to try those out! I just hit manage attachments, down below. Looks like it is the same thing.
