1. How do I insert photos into my listings? -to insert photos into your listing, you will need to first upload your photo to a site such as Photobucket.com. Once at Photobucket.com, upload the picture(s) you want to use from your computer onto Photobucket (hit the "Upload Images and Videos" button on Photobucket to find the photo/file on your computer and then upload it). Once this is done, and while at Photobucket.com, put your cursor on the photo you want to upload to BidOnMetals.com, and a dropdown on the photo occurs. Click on the "Direct Link" with your left mouse button (left click) to highlight this field. Then, after it is highlighted, hit your right mouse button (right click). Now left click on "Copy" with your left mouse button. -now go to the "Item Details" section on BidOnMetals.com (where you enter the information/photos about the auction you are listing). On the taskbar above "Item Description" there is a green square with a tiny yellow circle in it. If you leave your cursor on it "Image" appears. Click this box. A larger box will appear on your screen. In the first line of this new larger box is "Source:" Left click your cursor in there, and then right click the cursor in there. After you right click a small box will appear. Scroll down to "Paste" and hit your left click button. Once you have inserted the link to photobucket in this section, left click on "Insert" on the lower bottom right of the larger box. Your picture is now inserted. -NOTE: you can choose to align your photos on the page before you insert them. If you insert your 1st photo aligned to the left, you may wish to insert your 2nd photo aligned to the middle or to the right. -once inserted, you can left click on the corner of your picture to re-size it in your auction listing.
