PhotoBucket users can register their blog details and subsequently post photos from PhotoBucket to Blogger. To associate your Blogger-based blog with your PhotoBucket account, first log in to PhotoBucket and click the Blog Options button. From there, select your blogging platform (Blogger) from the drop-down menu and click the Add button. Next, enter your Blogger username and password. Using your username and password, PhotoBucket will retrieve a list of the blogs associated with your account. If you have more than one blog, you will be asked to select the specific blog you want to set up at this time. You can associate as many blogs as you have with your PhotoBucket account, but you must go through the setup process for each blog. After selecting a blog, you are asked to confirm the blog details before saving the information in your PhotoBucket account.

After you have at least one blog associated with your PhotoBucket account, you can post photos from PhotoBucket to Blogger by using the Blog button as shown in the following steps:


Click the Blog Button to Create a Post from PhotoBucket

When browsing within your own PhotoBucket album, click the Blog button to initialize the interface for posting to your blog.


Select a Blog

Clicking the Blog button will take you to the Post to Blog form. Select the target blog from the drop-down list containing the names of blogs associated with your account.

Enter a Title

In the Post to Blog form, enter a title in the text field. That title will become the title of your post.


Compose Your Post

Enter the text of your post in the textarea provided. The default form contains a minimal WYSIWYG editor, which you can use in lieu of the Blogger editor in Compose mode. If you prefer to hand-code the HTML, check the View HTML Source check box to switch modes.


Click the Post Entry Button

When you are ready to post, click the Post Entry button. The PhotoBucket form will connect to the Blogger interface and publish your post, all without leaving the PhotoBucket site. If your post successfully publishes, you will see a confirmation. If an error occurs, you will be told the reason for the error and given the opportunity to try again.


Verify the Post Contents and Image Alignment

Go to your blog and verify that the PhotoBucket image and post text are just as they should be. If you need to make changes, edit your post via the Blogger interface and republish it.


PhotoBucket also provides HTML for inserting an image in your blog post if you decide not to use the direct-to-blog interface. When viewing any image in your gallery, the URL to the image as well as an <img/> tag with the URL in it will be underneath the gallery image. You can use this code directly in your blog post.
