We’re pretty sure we’ve enjoyed getting this feature ready more than anything we’ve done at Photobucket all year. Heck, maybe ever!
What’s a theme? It’s a ‘skin’ that you can apply to your entire personal Photobucket album — and it customizes the background, colors and borders around your photos and videos.

Vanity URLs for Your Group Album and Personal Album
You probably already know this, but you can also make a "vanity URL"
for your Group Album. So when you’re inviting your friends, family or
fans to your Group Album, you can hand out an easy-to-remember URL.
This works for your personal Photobucket album too. There’s a link in the upper left corner of your album to set your own URL:
Thanks to all your feedback, we’re upgrading the way you upload photos and videos to Photobucket today.
This upgrade radically simplifies uploading to Photobucket. It allows you to upload both photos and videos at the same time, and presents options for choosing and selecting media from different locations.
Here’s a quick summary of the improvements:
Naturally, we’re keeping the "old" way of uploading, because we know that some people just like it that way or are ‘change averse’!
The size and limits of photos and videos that you can upload does not change.
Photobucket free users can upload images and have them appear automatically in the following sizes:
Photobucket Pro users can upload images in all the sizes above, and in addition:
File format support does not change either. All users can upload in all the standard file formats (JPG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG) and all standard video formats (3g2, 3gp, 3gp2, 3gpp, 3p, asf, avi, divx, dv, dvx, flv, gif, moov, mov, mp4, mpeg4, mpg4, mpe, mpeg, mpg, qt, wmv, xvid, rm). Pro users can in addition upload SWF (Flash) files.
You can choose to upload from your computer, a Web URL, from your mobile phone or from your email.
When you upload from your computer, you can pre-choose the size your image will end up. Or you can leave it in its original size, with a limit file size of 1MB (free users) or 5MB (Pro users):
When you upload from a Web URL, you just enter the URL of the image.
If you want to upload images from your mobile phone, use the unique email address associated with your Photobucket album to email from your phone to your album. When you click on this option, your unique email address is revealed:
You can also send an image direct from your email account to Photobucket. Just attach the image/photo/video to the email and send to your unique email address:
And finally, we always welcome feedback. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Today we launched some improvements to the ways that Photobucket handles albums and subalbums.
Edit Album and Sub-Album Properties
Click on the "edit" link at the top of your album sidebar to edit the album properties. You can:
Make New Sub-Albums
You can have many albums, and layers of sub-albums, on Photobucket. It’s a good way to keep all your stuff organized.
To make a new album, just enter the name at the bottom of the sidebar, and click "save."
Expand and Collapse the Left Sidebar
If you have more than 25 albums, use the "more" and "less" links to control how many of your albums show in the sidebar at once.
