THIS IS HOW YOU ADD CREDIT CARD PICS TO YOUR PROFILE

Note:  The information in this guide is still very useful, but as of July 2017 Photobucket no longer offers 3rd party image hosting unless you subscribe to their paid plan which is $399/year; for this reason it might be preferable to use another vendor such as Imgur. 

 

Also, a width setting is now required by the forum software; many users simply add 20 to the height setting to get the width setting, for example height="50" width="70" (or similar).

 


 

ok guys, I couldn't figure out how to do this for a long time, but finally, after some help from some very nice community leaders and moderators, i figured it out!

 

1. create a new fold on your desktop(i named mine "cards"...lol)

2. google or bing the cards you are looking to add

3. right click the image and "save as".....save to the new folder you created

4. login to photobucket.com(you can sign in with facebook)

5. click the upload tab, up at the top of the page...choose desired file in the new folder you created

6. this will show you the pic you uploaded and a few html codes, at the bottom right of the page.

7. click the "direct" code...it will be copied automatically

8. log in to myfico.com.....go to "my profile"....then to "my settings"

*OK HERE IS WHERE IT CAN GET TRICKY*

9. copy this html code    <img src="" height="50">     then paste into the signature box(my settings)

*you see those two quotation marks together*

10. post your "direct" html code from photobucket, in between the two quotation marks, from the above code(step 9)

11. click save at bottom of page

THAT'S IT!!! YOU DID IT!

 

note: you do not have to add posts to keep checking if they are adding, as you go....just click on one of your former posts and reload after each new card to see that they are adding correctly.  you may have to tweak the size of the cards  by changing the "50" at the end of the codes to different numerical values(ie..55,60,75,100).  I have found that certain pictures will not line up correctly. The best thing to do in this case is to find a different picture.

 

Best of luck and feel free to ask me any questions!

 

 

Adding:  If you get an invalid HTML message after your first post go ahead and post it again the system has auto corrected the problem and it doesnt necessarily mean you are not able to post images in your signature. When you first sign up you are not allowed to post HTML to your siggy until you reach a certain number of posts, there is no set post count it is determined by the system when you are eligible.

trying_to_B_good, you should use an anonymous image hosting service or create an anonymous profile on photobucket to protect your personal info (i.e., your real name). This was pointed out to me by a friendly MyFico user a few months back when I was trying to figure out how to include cc images in my siggy.

Are your initials A.C.?  If so, the link to those images gives that away.
