At Photobucket, we give your photos a safe place to call home so that you can store, share, edit and print your memories with ease.
Never lose a photo again! We’ve created several upload options to ensure that you can safely and simply back up all of your photos anytime, anywhere.
Directly to Album
- Create a new album, or navigate to the existing album you would like to upload to.
- Drag single or multiple photos and videos from your desktop directly into the album.
- You can also click the hotspot to open a file browser and choose photos to upload that way.
- Voila! Your upload should begin.
Import from Facebook
- Click the orange “Upload” option at the top of the page, select the Facebook tab from the upload options, then select “Add Photos”.
- If you haven’t already linked your Facebook account, enter your Facebook login when prompted.
- ‘Select all’ is chosen by default. Alternatively, you can pick and choose what you want to upload by clicking ‘Unselect all’ and then checking the ‘Select’ box under individual albums.
- When you’re ready to import, click the ‘Add from Facebook’ button on the right.
Upload from Email
Uploading from email or MMS message is a great way to upload photos from your home computer or mobile device, even if you are not logged in!
To begin, you will need to know your upload address, which contains a mobile PIN number.
- Log in to your Photobucket account.
- Click on your username and then User Settings, then navigate to the Mobile tab.
- Copy the address in the Upload from email panel. This address never changes.
Now that you know your upload address, follow these steps to upload from your Email:
- Log into your Email account, and create a new message. Paste the upload address in the To: field.
- Add an attachment, and browse your computer for the image or video that you would like to upload.
- Enter the album name in the Subject field if you want to upload to an album other than your default album. Case counts, so make sure you type the album name exactly as it appears in your account.
Note: If you upload to an album other than your default, it must be at the first level in your default album.
You can follow the above steps to upload an image via text message as well, provided that your phone supports MMS messaging.
If you’re a first time Photobucket app user, you’ll be prompted right away to turn auto backup on. If you’ve already chosen to disable auto backup, you can simply turn the feature back on.
Open the app, then hit the menu icon in the top corner. For iOS users, tap Backup, then tap Enable. Only the wording is different on Android – tap the menu icon, then tap Backup, then tap Start Auto Backup.
