Photobucket Down

>> I’m literally pooing myself because Photobucket has gone down – 1000’s of blog imagery is up there sans backup (yes I’m a dumb dumb who wants to save hard disk space….).  I have no idea when it will be back up so until then it’s Style Bubble sans images…. oh dear….could this be the beginning of the end?  I knew it was all too good to be true……

EDIT: Panic over!  The Photobucket Help Forums went completely bezerk for a bit earlier on with people threatening to sue the site!  But all is well again.  Style Bubble without images is like me without my fringe – all wrong……

  1. When you save your images (if you don’t do this already of course) – save them as Save For Web (as opposed to just Save As) in your Photoshop options and set it to jpg with a quality setting of say 75. That’ll ensure your images are much smaller, and take up very little disk space on your machine.

  2. oh dear indeed! no, it’s not really a problem. but it would be much easier to use flickr instead of photobucket. before i converted, photobucket used to delete my images randomly and size down my uploaded pictures.
    it was horrible! but flickr is very reliable. i can give you full assurance that it’ll always remember and not. muck up?
    here: http://www.flickr.com

  3. you can post on flickr, and link to images from flickr as long as the images themselves link back to flickr itself. there is no logo anywhere.
