Holy Cow!

We’ve made some significant updates to the experience that you have on Photobucket and we’re both excited about the changes and updates that we’ve made and keen to hear your feedback. We received great support and responses to our newsletter that went out a few weeks back and want to hear your reaction to our latest & greatest updates too!

Full-size view in album redesign
The full-size view page for an image has been totally overhauled with a new look, and new functionality as well. What was previously on the ‘Edit’ page has now been integrated directly into the full-size page. From this page, you will be able to:
1.) See full-size image
2.) Resize, Rotate, Add description, change Filename
3.) Send to mobile – This means you can send pictures from Photobucket to your phone!
4.) Order prints (More than photo prints, you can make mugs, key chains, calendars, etc)
5.) Delete image
6.) View thumbnails for next/previous images in account

Check it out!
