Photobucket...

hostafreakMarch 14, 2013

Well photobucket has now made it impossible to send any more pics to you on the hosta forum,so you will not see any more pics from me. They changed to the new system,and I can't put them on the forum,so that's it. They used let you change back to the old system,but it seems they have made the switch to the new one,with no going back. I uploaded a photo to my album today,but I can't do anything with it,except look at it. Phil

Thanks Ken,but the pic still won't go into my library. It just shows up next to the library as a larger pic. The weird thing is,I still have another library in my laptop computer,and it still has the old method of Photobucket,and it still works the old way! Phil

OK,forget it! It seems photobucket DID put it into my library,but not on the way the old method did! Sorry I ever complained,but I still don't care for the new method. See you again in hosta season,but not until this weather changes. Phil

I had a bunch of problems. I coudln't find anything.

It sorts them by the date the photo was taken, not the date you upload them.

I had to delete all my cookies to make the uploader work.

You have to bring up the photo in a window by itself to get to the the code you use for posting.

Photobucket's change doesn't seem to be for the current users, but for the tablet and phone users. We're seeing more and more of that on the web.

It's hosta season in Texas!

Below is a Photobucket screen print - under Library drop down menu - select View Library....top pics shown should be your last uploaded pics with codes below.....if last uploaded is not on top, then go to your acct settings->user settings->albums->and change your sort order to newest first.

And to add to what Paul said, since the only code I ever use is the HTML code, and to allow more space for pix (i really dislike that whole scrolling garbage) I set mine up to show just the HTML. If you click on a picture, under the links is an "update link options" link. In there you can define which links are visible (as well as some other album options).

Ken, try Ctrl+ and Ctrl- (press and hold Ctrl) to resize screen.

plus or minus.. does nothing..

but i did discover.. when i point at a pic.. a gear shows in the upper right corner.. and one of the options to click on is GET LINKS ... so you dont have to navigate to a new page ...

Ken, did you collapse the Library? I get 4 like Paul and when I collapse the Library I get 5 across.

Ken, you may have to do CTRL- or CTRL+ a few times to change display size enough to get 4th column of pics to show.

if i go full screen... i can get to 3 .... but that is blindingly white ...

ok.. didnt see your before above..

there are certain buttons.. that are just weird little squiggles...

but next to where it says LIBRARY ... i hit that squiggle.. and the library column folds up .. and i am up to 3 pix.. and if i go full screen.. 4 pix ....

there used to be a way to make the background black.. i liked that..

but i am a multiple open window guy.. so i dont like full screen ....

still want to know about machine wide font size... might have found it in firefox ...

Ken,

Are you still using an 800 x 600 screen? Mine is 1440 x 900.

Here's my screen on my laptop.

Hmmm. I wonder if we are on the same page. At the top go to "Library". Then 'View Library". See if that gets you to 4 pictures across.

For Windows 7 or 8 the link shows how to change DPI settings.

Here is a link that might be useful: DPI

yeah the UPDATE they made makes me think they think they should change the name from PHOTObucket, to FOOTinbucket !
