Just put the codes in the actual listing.
Photobucket and Imageshack provides the codes- so all you will need to do is copy and paste them in the listing.

Ebay needs the html codes. If you select your photos (click the box below each photo, or click Select All), then click the Generate HTML and IMG Code button, you will get several results. Use either of the ones that say Ebay. One will just display your photos full size, and the other will provide clickable thumbnails.

If you just want one or two photos, you can individually copy the HTML Code line under each photo.

I usually use this HTML code for images:

<img src = " URL OF IMAGE" >

But without the spaces. lol on the codes they give you, they have one that just gives you the URL. Use that for the above code. :smile:

You need to switch your description box over the HTML.

Before putting your description in, look at the top left part of the description box. Do you see a link that says HTML? Click it. Then paste your IMG codes in the box.

Then go back to the top left and click on the link that now says standard. You should see the photos show up and you can now type in your details normally.
