Hi, anyone know how to contact them? All of a sudden I can't access Photobucket. I've tried the link where they send you by email what your password is, but I don't get the email. The FAQ section doesn't help as it does't answer my question. Is there any other way of contacting them.

Robert

On the contact page it provides a link to a forum and blog. Maybe the forum might offer some advice?

I can't see an email address contact but they have a technical section in their forums http://forums.photobucket.com/ which is apparently staffed by photobucket staff.

ETA Too slow!!

From this thread in the forum it looks like there are some technical problems.

Cheers guys, looks like I've picked some bugs up on my system. Time for a bug hunt I think!

YES. I have difficulty in resizing and get nothing happen at all. photos remain the same size, or I get disconnected for no reason.

It's dead slow for me, very annoying. Deal with the ads by using Firefox + Adblock.

I have been using Photobucket successfully now since I joined the forum and found it to be very good. Nice and easy to use. :D

For various reasons I have had to shelve my modelling activities for the past month or two  :cry: , but managed to make some, albeit small,progress recently. :P  I took photos to share on the forum, but find Photobucket has changed its editor and now it does not appear to work?  :?

Is it me :oops:  or has anyone else experienced problems?

Photobucket has been OK for me since the change over. The major difference is in the editing tools, but I hardly ever use them. Photobucket can be very slow.

It might be better to use Irfan to edit before uploading  :idea:
Photobucket are useless at resizing  :evil:

I would go with editing with Irfan and then uploading to Photobucket as suggested by Ratch, that is the way I do it and it seems to work without problems

Cheers

It's OK now that they've updated the editing tools. It still makes sense to edit before uploading, especially re-sizing, in order to reduce the file size and improve upload speed.
