Nice place Susanne. I've had a few problems with image sizing on Photobucket myself and found the best way is;
1: Click on the image
2: Select 'Edit'
3: Click on 'Adjustment'
4: Click on 'Resize'
5: If the picture is in Landscape format, in the 'Width' box overwrite what is there with "640". If the picture is in Portrait format, in the 'Height' box overwrite what is in there with "480". If the number in the appropriate box is less than these figures, then ignore what I have just said. Also, make sure that the box marked 'Keep Proportions' is checked.
6: Click on 'Apply'
7: Click on 'Save as Copy' and use the copy to post the image.
For some reason, if I use the 'Save and Replace' option, my photos are cut off but by using the copy version, the alterations seem to have been applied and the photo fits perfectly.
By the way, forum size photos of 640x480 seem to work best. I hope this helps.

Penfold, what did the wooden frames in the water used to be?
I'm not too sure whether you are referring to the groynes (pic 1, 3, & 5) which are used as protection against tidal erosion (spelt 'groins' in the US) or the structure of the pier (last three pics). Normally, piers have buildings on the end of them but Bognor's seems to have been shortened by around eighty foot for safety reasons after suffering storm damage in 1999 and is now little more than a platform going out to sea. It's claim to fame is being Britains 10th oldest pier and the hosts of the annual Birdman Competition (since moved to my hometown of Worthing as a result of the aforementioned storm).
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
