If you're wondering what I'm up to:  Photobucket, where I upload all pics and where you can download them as well, has decided to come out with 'new, improved Photobucket', which honestly SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! from every angle. Half the features don't work. All the pics that were larger than 768x1024 (think promo-pics 2000x3000) have shrunk as they have decided that it's suddenly no longer allowed to have pics bigger than 768x1024. You used to be able to click on the thumbnail, be directed to the picture where you could download.... well, no more!
I have watched this disaster slowly become a bigger one over the last two weeks and I've been patient and I have TRIED (I'm not against changes) but I've reached a point where I have a few suggestions where PB can stick their new-improved sh**-place and I'm looking for another photosharing place. And I'm trying out different ones.  so if you see all sort of weird pics come by... That's the reason.

Let's see what this will do and if this works. ;)

It's in beta, which might explain why you're experiencing difficulties. There must be a way to contact them and ask for help. I've checked my account. It looks different, and once I located the library and was able to seem pics and folders, it seemed to work okay.

I hope you can sort this out. :)

Well, that's just it. When it was all still all in Beta, we could go back to the old photobucket, but not anymore. They've simply shoved a whole new site down my throat where half the supposed functions júst don't even WORK.

This is not about ironing out bugs and start-up issues. They had an entire list of things that were still 'working on', 'pending' and that are 'coming up' (in somewhere from 2 weeks to several months!). The product isn't nowhere near finished.

I can't even download my own pics in their original size anymore and that is NOT a bug, but something PB thought was a good idea and so, they just changed it all without my knowing about it.

They don't even know, at this point, if they can change it back... Or IF they will allow us to post pics bigger than 1024x768. They have worked on this, but, they don't KNOW?

I'm sorry, but IF (as a programmer) you've been working on this for a long time and IF you know your clientele and IF you had bothered to look around on PB, the thought that it might be just a stupid idea COULD have occurred to you.

There are people on Photobucket who use the pics professionally or who make art-work and Photobucket decides unilaterally to shrink all their pics. They are livid!

With a place as big as Photobucket, one could expect less unproffessional behaviour.
