Photo Editor Overview

Edit your photos like a pro using Photobucket’s enhanced photo editor. Our easy to use tools help you personalize your memories and add that extra flare that make your photos stand out.

At the top of the page, select the edit tab.

Photo Editor

That will bring up a window with thumbnail views of your images. Here you have the option to edit photos from Your Bucket or from your Albums. Browse through your photos, and when you find the image you would like to edit, click on the thumbnail.

Photo Editor

After you have selected a thumbnail image to edit, that image will be opened in the editor. Once in the editor, you can select a variety of editing options such as Resize, Effects and Contrast.

    Why cannot i not see stickers in my editor? I tried it several times and no stickers show up.

    I’m having the same issue Gypsy had. Neither of the methods of getting a photo available for editing (into the editing screen) is working for me.

      Hello Marti,

      We are very sorry for this inconvenience. We have been troubleshooting issues with the Photo Editor and deployed another fix yesterday afternoon. The editor should now be working. Again, we apologize and appreciate your patience.

    I’m having an issue with the image coming up on the screen. I’ve followed the directions, but after choosing the image from my bucket, the image window goes away, but the image I chose doesn’t appear. Rather the same blue prompts to *select from computer- or *select from your photobucket- is still there.

    Am I doing something wrong? If you’d be so kind as to reply with a solution, I’d be grateful. Thank you!

      We are currently experiencing issues with the Photo Editor. This is a known issue that is affecting several users and we are working to fix the problem as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

      In the meantime, you can get around the problem by clicking “Editor” on the left hand side of the top navigation bar and then selecting the photo you wish to edit from there. (Rather than selecting ‘edit’ when on a photo)

      Our engineering team worked on the Photo Editor issue yesterday and found a solution. Are you still having problems today?

    After you’ve done editing and saved it, where do you go to put it in the contest?

      Hello Jack,

      There are a few ways you can submit your photo to the contest. You can share the photo via Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #pbQuotes, or you can save the photo in a Photobucket album and just add the hashtag #pbQuotes to the Title or Description of the photo.

      Good luck!

      Hi Dan,

      You will need to sign in to your Photobucket account, or sign up for free if you don’t already have one, to start editing photos. You can then click “edit” from the main navigation tabs and choose photos from any of your albums to edit. Enjoy!
