    I'm trying hard not to use coarse language in describing my frustation with Photobucket.

    Here goes...Used to love it. Made me hate it. Stupid ass faces. Sorry.....

    So, to all you cool kids I ask this...whats a better option?

    I'm freakin furious with their 'new website' as well.

    I'm actually considering paying for a smugmug account. Yeah, you have to pay for it, but it seems to have the best combined qualities. All the other free sites have at least one sort of dealbreaker for me, usually storage limits.

    Hmm. Come to think of it, I wonder if I'm getting photo storage with my iCloud account?

    If you like ADV, Smugmug.com supports the operation of this site and keeps it spam free. Get Smuggy.

    But when it's 'Free',,, it's hard, (and pretty useless) to bitch about service and/or expect improvements.

    SmugMug is only $30/yr. Even a cheap ass Canuck like me can afford it. :1drink

    I use photobucket, and I agree - it's getting crappier with every revision. I have a flikr account, but they limit the free file storage and aren't much better.

    Smugmug is way better!!! Better editing, faster everything.... and like GB said, your payment to Smugmug helps ADV stay free and well modded! Photobucket is owned by Newscorp for goodness sake.....:puke1
