Brand new “organizer” for your photo and video albums

Our brand new album organizer has to have been the number one requested feature from our most active Photobucket users.  So now it’s here

So for all you Photobucket users with thousands of photos and videos in your albums, and a bit of a muddle going on with how they are categorized, this one’s for you.

Simply click in the top right corner of your album on the "organize" link:

organize menu

You’ll be launched into a special window powered by Flash.

(You may be prompted to upgrade to the latest Flash version. Now
would be a good time to do that. It’s pretty simple and a good thing to
do.)

Some of the highlights of the new photo and video album organizer:

  • Drag and drop to organize photos and videos between albums
  • Drag and drop to re-arrange photos and videos within albums — so the photos and videos are just in the order you want to share them
  • Sort the way you want, by newest first, oldest first, alphabetical by title and alphabetical by filename
  • Hold down the Ctrl-key (Windows) or Cmd-key (Macintosh) to select
    more than one photo or video at a time, and then use drag and drop if
    you want
  • Use the area on the right to add titles and descriptions "in bulk" really quickly
  • Use the slider bar in the right to increase, or decrease, the size of the thumbs.

For those of us who’ve been at Photobucket a long time, with quite
some considerably disorganized albums to clean up (errmm, like most of
us at Photobucket), this is a great feature. There’s no time like now
to get organized before the holidays. Hope you enjoy the new feature.

As always, we welcome your feedback. Write to us at pbfeedback(at)photobucket.com.

    This is just wonderful, only taken me a half hour to get everything sorted in my mousey folder, what a wonderful idea.

    Hey, I really appreciate this new album organizing feature (hypothetically) but I can’t figure out how to [U]save[/U] the changes I’ve made.
    I’m in a sub-album and choosing Organize and then Sort / Alpha by Title.
    The album does reorganize the photos Alphabetically by title.
    But, there doesn’t seem to be a “save” option (using Firefox -both on PC and Mac).
    When I leave the organize page and go to the album page the pics have reverted to their original order.
    What am I missing?

    Hi Jimplay. I just went into my own personal account and sorted my pictures alphabetically using the organizer tool (in firefox on a pc). After it was done organizing, I just clicked on the title of the album I was working on and it took me back to that album, and it was still organized alphabetically.
    I’m not sure why you are having trouble. If this continues please email us at support@photobucket.com. Happy organizing!
