    This is also fantastic and thanks for this service- Your Mobile Settings provides the email address unique to your album. Use this email address to send photos direct to your album from your email system, or from your mobile phone.

    Presently I author two children’s story blogs. One on Typepad and one on Google blogspot published weekly. I also pub. a blog on MySpace called Fur Babies & Sweet Paws, all about animals.
    First may I say I love Photobucket and use it constantly. Going through animal pictures recently I came across several horrible pictures of abused animals. This is exactly what my blog in MySpace was started to try and help in a small way prevent.
    I am one of those people who see a picture like that and can’t get it out of my mind. Is it possible you could have a seperate section for such pictures where the people viewing them would know in advance what to expect? If you view my blog you will see I am not such a softy as to not realize people like Michael Vice exist. I am however so very much a lover of animals that horrible pictures like the face of the pit bull torn apart will not leave my mind for years to come if forever. I feel people should somehow be fore worned before being subjected to these pictures.
    If you could rethink this and consider my suggestion I know your readers would over whelmingly be in favor of it!
    One final thought, loose the people pictures in the animal section. Though I totally agree most look like animals they don’t belong in that section.
    If any of this note gets any attention I will be greatly appreciated. I truly believe it will better your presentation.
    Thank you for any attention you give this matter.
    With Smiles,

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll bear your ideas in mind as we continue to develop Photobucket. Our users upload almost 10 million images a day to our site. We review each one for adherence to our Terms of Service, but it’s not really feasible to editorialize beyond that.
