Upload to Album – It’s a Snap!

Posted by on Mar 11, 2014 in Feature Updates, Help & Support, Tutorials | 9 Comments

At Photobucket, we continually strive to have the best photo album experience on the web. Over the coming weeks, we will bring new functionality to your album pages on the website, making it easier to upload, manage, view and share your photo albums.

We recently launched a new, straight forward way to upload directly into your album of choice while viewing that album. Just look for this new uploading hot spot:

Upload Hotspot

 You can start uploading by following these simple steps.

  1. Create a new album, or navigate to the existing album you would like to upload to.

  2. Drag images and videos from your desktop directly into the album.Drag to Album

  3. You can also click the hotspot to open a file browser and choose photos to upload that way.Open File Browser

  4. Voila! Your upload should begin.

You can browse your library while photos are uploading without interrupting the process.  The upload progress bar at the bottom of the page allows you to monitor your uploads and quickly access newly added photos.

Once the upload is complete, we’ll arrange the photos into your album based on your organization preferences.

More exciting album updates are on the way!

    Good morning!

    Just one question…is Photobucket free?

    If so, I will download/upload all of my photos to Photobucket!

    Many thanks!

    Thanks for the updates. Will I automatically get the page with the Hot Spot for uploading pics into my album or do I need to do something? This was unclear to me, my friends. Thank you for your help and assistance. Have a great day!

      Hi Kaitlyn,

      Once you login to your Photobucket account and go to your “Library” you will automatically see the upload hot spot, which you can click on to choose photos to upload, or simply drag-n-drop photos / folders to upload.

    I have so many pictures and Albums on Photobucket and I would LOVE to be able to cast them onto Chromecast. Please look into being able to do this. I have other apps that manage to get my pictures from Google+, Facebook, and Flickr, but I have invested Photobucket with a pro account and the majority of my stuff is here. PLEASE work on making this possible.
