Launching today: integrated image editing on Photobucket

Posted by on Mar 6, 2008 in Feature Updates | 17 Comments

It’s the number one feature you’ve asked for. And now it’s here: full editing right inside your Photobucket album.

You can crop, rotate, and flip images. You can remove blemishes, smooth out wrinkles, add fun shapes, play with color effects, or add your face to a celebrity, gorilla, or astronaut. And much more besides.

Your original photo will always be safe. You can choose to save a new copy or overwrite your original.

Click here to take a look at a slideshow of some samples.

How do you edit your images?

Click on an image in your album, to zoom into "full view." You’ll see a new "edit image" pull down menu above the image.

What can you do?

Lots of ideas here: Click here to take a look at a slideshow of some samples. And here’s a couple below.

In the image below, apply Pop Art (in the Effects tab). Then add a frame by selecting Antique Frame in the Borders tool (located in the Decorate tab). Lastly, add some Text with a background using the Text tool (in the Decorate tab).

In the image below, use Smart Recolor (located in the Geek tab) to recolor the hair blue. Play the embedded help video to learn about this tool. Then, apply Photo Corners (in the Borders tool, located in the Decorate tab).

    whenevrz i click on the smart recolor button, it opens up two windows
    One window is just the editing window i was using, and the other window is the smart recolor window
    it wont let me use the smart recolor window because it says “click Esc to exit full screen mode”
    So i click Escape.
    and then it goes to the smart recoloring window but it blocks out everything and alls it says is “click ok to go back to full screen mode.”
    so it only lets me click that
    so i click that and it just goes back to the click esc to exit and it just is a big circle of getting nowhere!!!
    how do i fix that?

    How the heck do I actually SAVE the pictures once I’m finished editing? There isn’t a “save” button anywhere in the stupid editor!

    Hi Carol. The editing tool for your photos should still be there. When you click on a particular photo, directly above it are basic editing options (resizing, rotating, etc.).
    To do more with the Fotoflexer editor just go to the tab that says edit images. Then select which option you want to use, and from there you can access your albums and edit pictures.
    If you are still having problems please check out our tech support forums http://forum.photobucket.com. Or you can email them at support@photobucket.com
    They’re happy to help over there! Thanks!

    I’ve been away for a few weeks and it seems that the new “editing feature” isn’t available on my account anymore. HELP??

    Why oh why have you removed this easy to use feature and replaced it now with a far more complex and time consuming method???? Please bring back the original Fotoflexer editing feature tab.
    Please………..

    I hate this new setup for images and videos. It doesn’t let me see all my pics on my computer. Therefore I can not upload my own work. Not all my images are videos and it seems to me that only video types will be shown for upload.
