You Can't Share Without Paying
05 August 2017
Reviewer: Dave from Berwyn Heights, Maryland

13 of 24 people found this review helpful

I have used Photobucket for many years. Mainly to host pictures that I may want to share on online boards. But they suddenly stopped letting you do that. You can't even do it with their not-so-cheap basic plan. You have to go to their $100/yr plan.

I can see charging if people are using the to host lots of linked pictures that cause zillions of hits. But there should be some capability to link pictures with the free service (like there used to be).

I'll be looking for another photo site.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

Pb used to be great but now totally sucks! avoid-avoid-avoid

I joined PB pro based on great reviews in 2010 and have used it for the past three years. They used to have great background themes for all of your albums and it was simple to upload new pics. Then in 2012 they redesigned the entire site and now it is just horrible. The themes are gone and uploading is a nightmare. I will not renew my pro subscription again because I hate using PB now. I refuse to join Facebook so now if I want to share pics I just email them. Don't waste your time or money on PB it will be bankrupt in a few more years when all of its subscribers flee to other sites.

PS I'd give it negative stars if I could.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

Changed version is rubbish
09 May 2013
Reviewer: Stephen from UK

I have many photos and videos here, as a Pro user for several years. Recent changes have rendered the site almost unusable for me. We have even lost the ability to have slideshows. Support is pathetic and there are many unhappy users now. If it wasn't for all the effort and time uploading and giving info against photos etc I would have jumped ship a long time ago. Steer clear of what used to be a good facility, that has turned to bad. Don't waste your money or time.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

New version photo bucket utterly dysfunctional sorry mess
02 April 2013
Reviewer: Jim from East Texas

140 of 276 people found this review helpful

I have stored images on P'bucket for many years. But, their newest version pukes. I wish I could give it a NEGATIVE 5!
PROS? NONE not any more.
Well, it's got a free version but, for what the site has become, it isn't worth it. Truthfully, that's more of a con. That's why I gave 1 star for "value for the money."
CONS? The first thing I notice is that I cannot find any way to select more than one image at a time for handling. Lets say I want to select half a dozen images to post on a forum./ USED to be, you could just select the desired images and click make links and the bucket would crank out links for each image. Not now, at least, not that I can find! Sect one image, get it's links made deal with it then select one, get links made, deal with it select one...
Ads everywhere.
Help? If you want to ask a question they expect you to download some sort of video thing to take a image? video? of your screen page before you can post your question. I don't like the idea of downloading ANYthing, especially just... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

Used to be a great photo sharing site
17 March 2013
Reviewer: IC31 from Upstate NY

143 of 265 people found this review helpful

PB used to be a great photo sharing site but the latest and newest version (2013) has (1) scrambled my photos (2) the site has become incredibly slow (3)the site added someone elses totally unknown photos to my albums (4) it has become a disaster for uploading photos. I tried to add about a dozen a couple days ago. They went somewhere, but not in one of my albums (5) PB wants me to tell a 'photo story' with my photos when all I want is a place to store and share.

It is easy to join - the rest of the offerings are pure junk.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

Kicking the 'bucket
21 February 2013
Reviewer: A former Photobucket Customer from NOVA

145 of 283 people found this review helpful

If I was able to give them negative ratings I would.

The "New and Improved" Photobucket is a joke. Stay away from it and tell your friends.

I have a Pro Account with Photobucket and have decided that their new site is just not worth the hassles.

I have decided to move my whole portfolio to another site. It will take a little while to move over 100,000 photos but in the end I hope it's worth it.

There is little to no customer support, they have breached the contract with the account holders who paid for services that are no longer available, they have caused many folks to lose money due to broken links, etc.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.

Try to get started
06 November 2012
Reviewer: Frustrated from UK

146 of 272 people found this review helpful

I wanted to send out an e-mail to friends who attended my sisters wedding and get them to upload their photos and videos. I spent about 4 hours trying to work it out with this system, but it was too too complicated for mere mortals to understand. So I would not recommend it. For a person who is computer literate it might be a doddle, but it was a step to far for us. So we will try and find something else.

In summary, I would not recommend PhotoBucket to a friend.
