Default Posting Photo's

I used to use Photobucket to post photo's on a few forums but they now use somthing called Pixler for editing(resizing) and I cannot get it to save a resized photo. I used Picasa Web Album once to post a photo on this site but forgot how. As I remember it was not very simple and I need simple, very simple. Copy and then past on whatever post would work but the photo has to be resized somewhere and in Picasa there is no resize feature. Can someone help me out with what should be an easy thing to do.

I haven't logged in to my Photobucket account for quite a while, so can't help you there. I have found that for me, the simplest thing is to keep a folder on my computer (I call it Sample Pictures), and use Irfanview to resize and the RIOT plugin to compress to a file size that fits the forums here, then upload from my computer. This is the easiest for me unless I somehow need to post multiple pictures in a single post.
One thing you could do is create a sub-album in Photobucket for forum posts, and do your resizing before you upload them. ( I was thinking of doing that myself, but got distracted by the invitation to the 1997 Procrastinators' Convention)
