I am having a problem transaction go down.  I got a book with several torn pages and the sender is wanting photos of the book. Not a problem, but I'm unsure of the best way to send her the links to the pics.  Should I open a Photobucket acct? Is it easy to use?  I'd rather not let her have my email address (mostly cause I can tell this transaction will not go smoothly.)  Any other ideas?

You need to post to them a site similar to photobucket and then copy and paste the URL into the PM

PHOTOBUCKET.COM 

It is free, but I am not sure how much space you are allowed before you are required to purchase an account.

Photobucket is super easy to use--and the free account will have more than enough space.  I have over fifty photos uploaded and it shows that I've used 0% of my available storage.  I used 3MB--and the free account allows up to  500MB.

Thanks guys.  I opened a photobucket account and downloaded the pics of the book from my phone (couldn't get my camera to take clear close-ups of the book).  And it WAS easy.  :-)
