    Seems photobucket adds a popup to html code that ebay dont like HTH

    Open another window, go to Photobucket and upload your pic.
    *
    Go back to the window with the listing you are writing.
    *
    Switch to HTML mode.
    *
    Scroll down to where you want your image to be.
    *
    Go back to the Photobucket window and copy the HTML code for your pic.
    *
    Paste it into the editing area for the listing.

    DO NOT switch to normal mode yet -- here comes the part to disable the pop-up:

    Every Photobucket HTML tag has TWO parts, one to display your pic on the net page, and the other to create a full-size pop-up on Photobucket when you mouse or click it. The first part looks like this:
    <a href="web address here" target="_blank">

    That's the part you want to get rid of, because it created the pop-up space. To disable it, put your cursor at the end of this section after the > at then end and before the < beginning the next part of the link, which you want to keep, like this: >cursor here<. Now backspace and remove all of that first part. You will now have a link that looks like this:
    <img src="web address here" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

    That will now work on an eBay listing! By the way, you should change the word "Photobucket" (or whatever) in the ALT="Photobucket" part to something that describes your image. You have probably noticed that, when you mouse over the photo, a little box appears that says "Photobucket." This is an alternative text created for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to read for the blind. You can -- and should -- change this to something that describes your photo. To do this, simply find the alt="Photobucket" part of the HTML and change the word "Photobucket" to something else. If you don't want the text box there at all, erase the entire alt="Photobucket" part. However, I recommend changing it to your own description instead, because it makes your page more handicapped accessible. Also, if you want a border around your pic for some reason, just change ther zero on border="0" to some other number. The bigger the number, the wider the border.

    I've got a HTML background/border and use photobucket html's for photos in the description and all works but copy and paste.

    Hope it works soon, I know it does take a quiet house and patience sometimes, know it did when I first learnt!
