This is still displayed as helpful information when trying to post photos on LJs:

Trying to get Photobucket to work now is a time sink and an exercise in frustration as that site no longer supports 3rd party hosting of links without a fee. Try it and this is the result:

Suggest LJs remove PB as a helpful suggestion.

It’s not a small fee, either. I’ve moved to another site.

Another real bummer about PB is I downloaded all my photos to move to another site. The downloads are the the original size I uploaded them at. They are way less resolution.

So far I’m finding “Flickr” to work pretty well.

A bunch of useless text in the LJ “Embdding Pictures” guide RE: Photobucket too.


Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? Well, it is. For this guide, we’re going to walk through the necessary steps for inserting an image onto your LumberJocks entry using one of the easier-to-use websites called Photobucket. If you would prefer more of a step-by-step form of instruction, check out the How To process for this same procedure.

Photobucket Overview
Photobucket is simply a photo-hosting website. There are two levels of Photobucket accounts; Free and Pro. The Free Account is the standard and it takes a total of about 30 seconds to set it up. It costs nothing to do so – it’s free, if that wasn’t obvious – and their on-screen assistance makes setting up your account pretty much effortless.

Photobucket Albums
When you first open your account, you will automatically be given a photo album. In order to better organize the photos you load onto your Photobucket account, you can create sub-albums. You can create as many sub-albums as you want or need! One great way to use this feature is to create a sub-album for all of your different projects to help keep them organized.

An Overview Of Uploading Pictures To Photobucket
After you’ve set up your account and created whatever sub-albums you want, you have to upload images into tho

Photobucket sucks big time now. It was used to be awesome. Now it’s simply not usable. I have hundreds of pics that are going to go into cyber space, because I’m not willing to pay a hefty fee to see what were previously my free pics.

I’m just about done with the download of over 3,200 pics from PB, and the versions there are getting deleted when all is said and done. Then I’ll send a nice ‘Thank You’ to them before deleting my account altogether.

I may just have that entire page removed.

Let me think through some options.

P.S. I have always used Flickr as needed but mostly I upload pictures from my computer or phone.
