    If I want to use photobucket for my pics instead of paying ebay do I just put them in with the [​IMG]

    You can link them in the main decription field yeah... not sure if its ... its whatever the image attachment speak is in html. [img][a=href"..."]?

    God sorry I can't remember it exactly cos I use joomla for my websites now instead of notepad html, but it's something like that.

    Im not entirely sure, but I would of thought Ebay would protest cos there money grabbing so and sos that want you to pay extra for the picture packs and so forth.

    I'm sure ebay actually says it's ok to link to images in the description box, probably reliant that a lot of people wouldn't know how to. But if you look at a lot of car listings there are a lot of photobucket pictures in the ads.

    use auctivia... we use it and its free, you can upload as many pics as you want, plus supersize them for free, and its a lot lot cheaper than advertising on ebay itself

    i usually write the auction ad out, then switch to HTML view and copy in the photobucket HTML codes

    If you do it in turbo lister (which is free to download) you can just click on the auction, then go to pictures and description and copy the photobucket html link into the tab that says URL's. It will show you a thumbnail of your image. Just make sure it corresponds to your gallery photo if you have one. I think its much easier doing it this way as you can save the auction and just change the description and the photo name instead of redoing it each time.
