*Updated* Site Changes

As a lot of you saw, we made some big changes yesterday. We have been working on this for a few months, and many of the changes are a direct result of the comments and suggestions from our users. We continue to listen to your feedback and have made some updates today:

  • We have added one-click copy to all link codes. This means that you can click any link code on the site and the code is automatically copied – No right-click or CTRL/CMD + C required!
  • We have restored the ability to upload more than 2 files by URL.  We do recommend that you check out our Firefox plug-in if you love uploading by URL. The plug-in allows you to right-click on any photo on the web and then upload it directly to your Photobucket album. Get it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10035/
  • We have changed the Sub-albums panel to show all sub-albums, sorted alphabetically

We have an amazing community of users, and we appreciate all of your feedback. We are listening and will continue to enhance your Photobucket experience.  Thanks again for your comments.
