    I have a Pro account with Photobucket due to the number of views some pictures used to get in other forums.

    I fixed it for you.

    You had: [IMG]http://imgur.com/BR4cIka[/IMG]

    What you needed was: [IMG]http://imgur.com/BR4cIka.jpg[/IMG]

    IMG tags only work on an actual image file, which typically end in either .jpg or .png

    Once you've uploaded a picture, you'll have a URL for it. Put that URL in between IMG tags in your post, like this:

    [img]http://i.imgur.com/ovthCi3.gif[/img]

    Or like this:



    That will give you a nice photo in your post, kinda like this:

    Thanks Uwe,

    I knew that there is a more difficult way to upload pictures. I will try it next time.

    You're trying to embed an album. imgur.com/a/* is an album. To get the url of just the image in question, right-click on it and use the menu option 'Copy Image Location' (Firefox), 'Copy image address' (Chrome), or 'Copy shortcut' (IE).

    The actual image URL is:
    http://i.imgur.com/Kae5rTF.jpg

    And the correct syntax to embed it in the forum is:

    [img]http://i.imgur.com/Kae5rTF.jpg[/img]

    That will give you:
