, which turns out to be the leading site for photo sharing, in terms of total number of images hosted. Facebook, however, isn’t a full-fledged service like the dedicated hosting sites Picasa or Flickr.
A free account at Photobucket gives you up to 500 MB of storage space for images and video clips, with a maximum bandwidth of 10 GB a month.
If you need more storage, a Pro Account gives you 25 GB of space for $24.95 a year.
Photobucket also makes it very easy to share or embed your photos on other sites, such as your MySpace or Facebook accounts, Blogger blog or any other website. Photobucket generates a link code for each photo.
If you want photos you’ll be proud to display online, check out Shoot Digital Pics Like the Pros, a free report from Dan Feildman.
It’s easy to upload photos into Photobucket.
1. Log into your Photobucket account, or, of you haven’t done so yet, register for an account.
2. Hover your cursor over the “All Albums” tab then click on “Create new album”
3. On the left-most column, you’ll find an Albums box. Use this box to create a new album for the photo you’d like to upload. Or, choose an existing album where you’d like the photo to be uploaded.
4. Click the “Upload images & videos” button
5. Select the photo you want to upload. You can upload either from your computer, another website, mobile phone or email.
6. Wait for the photo to upload. Afterwards, enter the title, description and tags for your picture. In the same screen, you can share the photo on MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, email and other sites.
7. Finally, click either “Return to album” or “Add tags to all albums.”
As you can see, it’s pretty easy. Photobucket even lets you share your pictures through printed products, slideshows, scrapbooks and online galleries.
As a hands down experiment, I uploaded 8 photos from my “Garden Benches” photography collection.
I then created a slide show with these photos.
It took less than 15 minutes to do all this and get a direct link to share with all my friends and social media sites. Click on this link => “Bench Talk…” to view the slideshow and get a feel of what you can do with your own photos.
Do not hesitate to leave your comments. 🙂 Would be delighted to read them.
