FYI, Photobucket is continuing it's downward spiral. Your images in the first post are not visible. I suggest https://postimages.org/ instead.

That's a 7 year old post.

Doesn't hurt to mention it though.

Lots of good info in old posts.  I always try to resurrect an old but relevant thread rather than creating a new one.  But it is unfortunate when people post links to photos rather than uploading them.  Lots of important information is then lost over time.

I may have some of my pics when I found this thread and did the mod. I'll see if I can find and upload those.

If you use Chrome there is a Photobucket Hotlink Fix extension. The pictures display as intended.

The photography forums I belong to have pretty much banned photobucket. It is not an outright ban, but their service is highly frowned upon, and they strongly discourage its use.

I stopped using it when they originally locked everything up unless you paid, effectively holding users' images hostage. They did change that policy after the outrage that followed, but they never did get back to what they were. I still had images on Photobucket until recently. They sent me an email saying I was over their limit, despite the fact I was way under their limit. They then said I went over their bandwidth limits for their free accounts, despite not using the service since their initial debacle.

I was traveling at the time and told them not to worry, I would delete all my images and account when I returned, telling them why I no longer use their service, and that though I am a photographer, and gladly pay for hosting services, I would never pay for theirs after what they did. They kept sending emails saying I don't have to delete my images or account. After repeated emails detailing why myself and other photographers dislike their service, they finally understood. They won't change, and I won't go to any machinations like switching browsers to see an image hosted by Photobucket. It is my hope they go out of business.

In the end, I deleted all my images, but decided to keep the account open to simply take up space. I thought about putting a number of images, up to the limit, all with text describing why I dislike the service, but that would probably be ridiculous and not worth the effort.  :D

Ok found the pics, but need to resize them. Just to confirm, is 1920x1080 the max size to post here? Or what's the suggested minimum size?

After a few years of doing this, mod is still working great (knocks on wood). Really helpful on the 1st gen models (08-09) of cycling the computer screen!


I would certainly appreciate that.  Thanks!

The forum will accept 4 attachments per post, with a maximum total size 6MB, maximum individual size 3MB per attachment.  So you can't tell by just resolution, because quality comes into play.  In reality, it is unlikely that anyone would need most photos larger than 1280x1024 (4:3) or 1920x1080 (16:9) (around 1 to 1.5 megapixels) unless there is a HUGE amount of sharp detail and they need to zoom in.  So I think that is an appropriate guideline to use.

It can actually be annoying when 5+ megapixel photos are posted because they take much longer to download.  Why people do this (upload crazy-huge photos) is they typically don't know how to resize the images- it is something I wish the forum software would just do automatically.  Oh well, it is what it is!
