Photobucket used to be a wonderful image hosting website. Unfortunately during the past few weeks, Photobucket changed over to a new program that's so bad I'm seriously thinking of switching to a new website, such as Image Shack.

In the old days, I could link to the photo directly and see a large, high definition image that showed my sewing projects beautifully. Now the only I can pull up is a small grainy image in the Photobucket Library that makes every garment look like a wadder. Ugh!

I know, I'm not the only one who's dissatisfied with the new Photobucket. If you're dissatisfied you can sign this petition or you can post a message on the Photobucket message board.

I haven't had any problems with my pics on Photobucket. I really didn't even notice much of a difference. Sorry you're having problems.

That may be because you post your photos to your blog. I don't have a blog and since Photobucket introduced the new version am no longer able to link directly to the image. Instead, Photobucket now allows me to link only to their library.

A few minutes ago, I downloaded my first images to Image Shack, and here's the photo as a direct link. From now on, I'll simply use Image Shack instead of Photobucket.

Yep, I've been having major problems with BetaPhotobucket. I participated in a survey last week and told them of my concerns.

The very worst thing is that PB locks up--totally freezes while I'm uploading photos to PR in reviews I am writing. Once or twice everything on my laptop froze up and I had to reboot.

Usually it's just the Photobucket program that locks up and I have to use the Task Manager to end the non-responsive program.

If I'm only dealing with 2-3 photos, no problem. If I'm dealing with over 6 photos, it's almost a guaranteed freeze.

Very frustrating but I assume everything will finally be resolved. (?maybe?)

Photobucket really shot themselves in the foot. I'm not sure they'll ever get all the problems solved, In the meantime, I've switched over to Image Shack and will probably be there permanently.

Thanks for clarifying that Nancy. I can understand how that could be a PITA for you. Hope you have better luck with your new pic host.
