1.
Main page, click: "Upload now" (The green button)


2.
Then select: "Customize your upload options"

3.
Then you can choosing "Photo storage sizes" you want. (I have chosen: "Best possible quality (while staying 1mb or less)")


4.
Now you can:
Red Arrow "Select photos and Videos" If you just want to upload photos or Videos.
Blue Arrow: Here you can choosing where to upload the picture or video from.
Pink Arrow: Which albums on your Photobucket, will you upload your photo or video to.
Green Arrow: "Create new album" Here can you create a new album.

In light of the introduction of the new Photobucket site, does anyone know how to disable the feature where they automatically create a low-res "web copy" for uploading larger pictures?

I hate it when the new site shrinks my Shipbucket contraptions, and I can't seem to find any instruction to disable that feature.

Thanks in advance.

So it seems Photobucket has changed its entire layout AGAIN!  NOW, I can't even upload anything or they took away the links that would be to the right of the picture when you clicked on it.  You click upload settings and all there is frickin MOBILE settings!  I don't want nor do I have the ability to upload via a mobile device.  WTF???!!!  Why do they constantly have to break everything?!


EDIT:  So....I logged out out of frustration and for some reason looked at the very bottom of the main page and found a link that said "Full Site".  Clicked on that and everything came up normally.  So where the frack was I earlier?  I really hope that's not where the site is going...

ummm ... you were on the 'mobile' site?   ;D

Note if there is an 'm.' in a site URL, yer on the mobile version.  ;D

Were you going to PB via a saved link or via a web search? If the latter, well, search results
on most search engines are based on the frequency of clicking on results and as many people
currently use the mobile version of many sites the search engine results become skewed towards
the mobile sites. Solution?, always read what a search result actually leads to.  ;D

There is a button/selection/option somehwere to use the original interface. Can't bloody find it now to show anyone but mines still old and usable. I can remember having to slueth it out when I started posting again 6months or so ago, as my pc kept locking up on the new look P ss-bucket.

I had that problem last week for my larger uploads - photo's loaded OK, though (twice, in the 1st instance, when I re-did them & it happened again).

Seems to have gone away, now, or isn't an issue with small (1 or 2 photo) uploads, which the last couple have been.

Problems persist. Can you recomend me any other site to post my images in order to show them here?

I don't understand why Photobucket is so popular for posting images on boards. It simply sucks.

Imgur or Flicker are far better, painless alternatives.

Here are the instructions for Imgur: http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=23.0
and Flickr: http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=1149.0

To each his own, personally I've never had any problems with Photobucket.

No problems with PB myself, but then Flicker gives me all sorts of grief.  Never heard of Imgur though. I guess it will depend on which computer operating system you have.
