Select the images you want by ticking the check box under each picture you want to use from your PB album and then at the bottom of your album page click on the 'get html/img code' (or something like that) and you'll get a page with links in different categories. For this forum you would select the [img] code for either full-size or thumbnails, for CL you would select the html code for either full-size or thumbnails. I usually select one photo for full size as I upload large images to my Photobucket account and thumbnails for any extras I want to post as a lot of folks get antsy/nasty/flaggy if they have to wait for large images to load or have to scroll through a large image in your posting, so ten full-size images will definitely make you an unpopular CL poster. Not a problem though if you're uploading smaller file sizes to PB.

+10 Wrong question entirely. You do not use a URL, you just paste the html in the body of your text. You do the same thing on ebay.

I use a Microsoft photo editor first, and save the pics as document quality. That reduces the file size by about 80 to 90%, and yet the pictures still show more than adequate detail on a Craigs List ad. Here's a typical C/L quality pic from my flickr account.
