I would like to transfer my phtobucket slideshow, from there onto here, Wattpad.
You can paste the link of the slideshow to the story page, using the Add Picture link. Hope this helps.
how do you add just normal pictures? i tried adding one but it didn't show, it just came up with a question mark in a little blue square. please help!!
it should have added it, are you sure the link is right? Make sure the url is right, sometimes it bugs about a bit,
Are you sure you're using the correct link? Photobucket offers four, the email/IM link, the Direct link, HTML code link and The IMG code link. It's the Direct link that you need.
thanks its working now!!! :D
It doesn't work for me... whenever I add a slideshow it says that it was unable to parse... could someone please help me??!!
Are you sure you are using the direct link?
yeah 100% sure
I'm afriad I can't say then, I have no experience with slideshows.
Emskie-Wings, That Is The Exact Problem Im Having!! ):
Yes, I've tried so many different ways and every link there is but it still will not work. Usually with pictures, the direct link works, but somehow for the slideshow, it says the link isn't valid or something like that. Even after trying it several different times on different days in case it was just buggy for a couple of hours or something, I still get nothing. Is it possible to fix this? Thanks!
Yu Need To Upload The Photos Onto The Photobucket In An Album From Yur Documents Or Pictures Or Where Ever Yu Have Them, Then Yu Hav To Make The Photos Yu Hav Uploaded Into A Slide Show And Copy And Paste The Direct Link Into The Wattpad Thing. Hope Yu Can Figure It Out Guys Cause It Took Me Ages To Do Too ;)
I tried the direct link but it say not a vslied code. HELP!!!
Hey, what if my slideshow is on Picnik? I've copied the link, pasted it on the tab under photos..Sigh*, it doesn't work. Shows the tiny icon I hate to see!
Jcsweetie, show me the link you're using. Chances are it's not direct.Tigurl again, show me the link you're using. And, I'm not sure non-photbucket links work (which is a shame, since I hate PB with a passion =])
@TiGurl24 - Totally agree with you. I tried making a slideshow on Picnik but it doesn't work. Only the icon with 2 tiny blue circles and a red circle on a tiny paper background. The icon I hate, too. >.<
@monkiram thank you so much! It finally worked with me too! yay!

Hi, adding a slideshow on Wattpad using Photobucket's slideshow feature didn't work for me. It's a direct link.
Here's the story page: http://www.wattpad.com/3304960-zhujiajiao-the-venice-of-shanghai
Here's the Photobucket direct link: http://s1249.photobucket.com/albums/hh517/edworlds/Zhujiajiao/
What did I do wrong?
Thank you monkiram! I took your advice and it worked!
I just tried to add a new slideshow from Photobucket and it didn't work either! Help!
The story is:http://www.wattpad.com/3595271-exploring-bang-phlap-thailand-by-bicycle
The slideshow is: http://s1249.photobucket.com/albums/hh517/edworlds/BangPhlap/
The story's not good without photos!
I tried this slideshow link too. It did not work. http://s1249.photobucket.com/albums/hh517/edworlds/BangPhlap/?albumview=slideshow
mgedwards, I diagree. A story is MUCH better without pictures. A writer should be good enough to paint a picture in a readers head with only words.
thank you monkiram. because of you, I found out how to most slideshow. Thanks again
thank you monkiram. because of you, I found out how to post slideshow. Thanks again
urm how do you make a slideshow
you have to go on photobucket, go to albums, then go to tools. then click the link that says slideshows. once you finish your slideshow, just copy the link and paste it (:
It never worked for me, which is a shame because I post great travel photos (see www.scribd.com/m_g_edwards). It would be nice, but after trying different methods for a couple of weeks, I gave up. It's not user error...the Photobuck/Wattpad link is buggy. Wattpad readers will have to settle for a nice cover photo and text or visit me over at Scribd.
I'm with you, mgedwards. It takes a lil snoop work on the tabs in photoshop.
1. In Photobucket Go to Albums.
2. Look for the set of tabs directly beneath that (blue tabs at top of page) The last tab is Tools.
3. Click Tools
4. Choose "Create Slideshow". (Apparently View Slideshow is useless for this purpose.)
5. Follow the three steps to create show. After step 3 It offers you the http link on the right side of page.

I can't find tools! :(
I CANNOT FIND TOOLS!!!! SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME!!!!
Can't find tools.Its not on there I have looked everywhere.It says create story instead.
It would appear guys that photobucket has updated itself and the option to 'create' a slideshow and get the 'direct link' and finding the 'tools' button is not going to work.I'm no idiot when it comes to using websites and crap, and I've been messing with this for nearly 2 hours.Find another website. It doesn't work anymore.If anyone is able to actually create a slideshow using Photobucket and share it to wattpad successfully in 2013 on wards, please share.
I found the direct link for the slideshow but when I put it in theres an error telling me it's not a jpg file. can someone help?
Currently, we've dropped support for adding photobucket slideshows. You're still able to add an image via photobucket though. This is due to the changes made on photobucket in terms of how the direct link is generated.
We do apologize for any inconvenience this is causing.
