New Features: Orangize Your Photos

We
are thrilled with all the feedback and suggestions our users have been
providing in our feedback forum,
and as a result, have made a few changes to the Organizer. Organizing your albums
and media is now easier and takes less time! 

Fresh
off the presses, and new to the Organizer:

  • The full list of all your albums is on the left side of
    the Organizer, so it's simple to drag-and-drop your media from one album
    to another. 
  • You can now move entire albums! Say, for example, you
    have multiple albums from 2010: a few birthday party events and a few
    random shots. Now you can create a 2010 album and move all those other
    albums into the main 2010 album. Easy!
  • You can delete entire albums WITHOUT individually
    deleting files in the Organizer or on the All Albums page. Did you break
    up with your boyfriend or girlfriend? No problem. Delete an album with one
    click of a button and never look back!

You can see all these changes when you log in and click the
"Organize" link at the top of your album. Have fun!

New Faster Uploading

We are really excited to announce our new faster uploading process! Starting today when you upload multiple files they will simultaneously upload at the same time making the upload process faster than ever! Upload 20, 50, or 100 photos and watch the status bar monitor the process.

Uploading to existing albums also got easier on the new uploader. Look for the drop-down menu at the top of the uploader to find the album you want to upload to or create a new album.

an album to that site. Additionally, you can share images and videos
automatically upon upload, with a click of your mouse.

Log into your Photobucket account.
2.
      
Click New! Auto-share your
uploads!
in the Upload panel.
3.
      
Click Connect beside each
service you want to connect to, then enter the required info and allow the
service to connect.

4.       Click Done to close the Set
up box. The Upload panel now shows an Auto-share checkbox and icons for the
services you are connected to.
5.
      
Click the Auto-share checkbox
on the Upload panel, then click Upload images & videos.
