Ok so I've used Photobucket for years to host photos. Last couple using the app. Then..wtf? Last update now I can't figure out how to use it. Wonder if this is on purpose. I dont normally have a temper but about lost it trying to figure it out.

It went to complete shit a few years ago. There have been multiple threads on the topic and if you do a google search for PB alternatives, you'll find plenty of reading material.

Bottom line... it's not just you. You're just late to the party.

Www.postimage.org

Easy to use, fast, will automatically resize on upload. Free not filled with ads, and you don't even need to setup an account. I can take a picture and have it posted in under a minute from cell phone.

Photobucket went to shit when they started trying to sell things like prints and such. The final straw for me was getting rid of the page organization system in favor of the single endlessly scrolling page a la Google Images. I used to share a lot of pictures, so I had quite a few things in my PB account. Scrolling down to find an old photo was a nightmare.

I'm quite happy with imgur now.

It's a garbage site now (yes, I know it's free) with all the crap ads. It crashes my browser every time I try to use it. I use PostImage now.

https://postimage.io/

Haven't used it much, but it's better than photobucket (which is useless to me).

Does anybody have a way to transfer pictures from PB to postimage?

I think the best option would be to have them stored on a hard drive or something.

If PB is your ONLY repository of the photos, then I guess keep trying and hope you get lucky?

Or, try Chrome or another kind of browser (maybe it just hates Internet Explorer?). . .

Can you see me now?

(Deleted uselessly Yuuge picture)

Photobucket won't allow me to resize the pic, and I accessed it through Chrome. I guess PB is still too messed up to use, so I'll have to pick a new one and try transferring my pics.

I have to seriously second this.

Maybe several months ago, I had problems uploading pics. I just waited and kept trying.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."

For me free Photobucket works much better using Chrome and AdBlock. Without AdBlock it is a huge mess.

Photobucket may be back on track. Let's see:

Well, it worked once, then froze again. I managed to resize from 800 to 600 (as posted here) and didn't lose clarity this time, but when I tried to resize again, I just got the spinning wheel.

Damn!

I can log in, but can't get to my labrary past the first page.

Post image is working fine.
