What happened to Photobucket? Login/Join

I gave up on Photobucket about ten years ago. They just kept crapping their application up, and it was counter-intuitive the way they were doing things.

I'm surprised anyone still uses it. When anyone posts a link to it, notice all the garbage it tries to load you up with, just to view the pic?

As soon as I realize its a PB link, I back out of it. Not worth it.

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!

Thanks for the Postimage suggestion. I just switched over to it from PB.

I'be been on PB forever so I had a ton of stuff on there. I've deleted PB (sorry about messing up any threads).

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.


Wow! That was easy to use and worked perfectly. Thanks Skins

OK, I'm hooked! Postimage it is!

It does not appear to allow photo storage like Photobucket does, though. So do I simply keep everything on my computer and drag it to PI each time I need to post a photo?

You can set up an account I think. I have just never bothered to.

Try imgur, it also has a meme feature.

I have to seriously second this.

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


Same here. I've not experienced much trouble with Photobucket so have not bothered to switch yet.

Try postimage if you're not using it for storage there's no bother because it requires no sign up and takes 20 seconds to upload, resize, and get link. Just try it once.

Rolan Kraps pointed me to some pics on Photobucket. Tried to go there with Safari on my iPad. It was torture. Gave up. Finally was able to view them, riddled with adverts, because they forced me to disable advert-blocking for their site before they let me see them, with Firefox on my desktop.

My take-away is Photobucket pretty much sux0rz.

Adios, Photobucket. You've tortured me long enough with your effing ads.

Postimage is now saying file too large. I tried smaller and smaller sizes still no luck.
Ok never mind....there were 4 images that just won't work...others are ok.
