Default Help w/ Photobucket Please

Photobucket is driving me nuts; it's taking the fun out of posting because I like pictures. My last post took 3 tries and a couple of hours. Here's my routine: I take photos of my catches with the camera on my phone and then email them to myself. From there I download them to my desktop, and from there I put them on Photobucket. When I get them on Photobucket it automatically reduces the pics to 400 pix wide X 250 pix high. I try to put them on CLF with the img and it says pics have to be less than 800 pixels wide. The last post I had to go down to 200 X 125 before CLF would take them and that's really small. Suggestions?- Thank you

I understand and agree. Photos make the post. It can be extremely frustrating when it doesn't flow smoothly. It's probably a cliché related to phone photos... Send PB an email asking them what it could be. I've done that and they have responded with suggestion as to the issue.

It could also be rated to your browser is probably what they will tell you. Use Chrome to avoid most issues. Good luck guy.

This same question over and over has been answered over and over...
You have 2 options...
1. Turn down the resoluition on your camera to 640x640 or 800 x 600 or whatever the lowest resolution is(800x max allowed)
OR...
2. resize your pics to 800 x 800 or smaller on photobucket before uploading to CLF...
3. download this http://download.cnet.com/PixResizer/...-10607499.html and resize your pics before you load to photbucket(this is what I do and it's almost foolproof)

Best option is to resize pictures on your computer amd then send them to PB. I dont trust PB's resizer. I have Windows7 on my laptop and i use Paint program to resize them. Otherwise download some program to ur comp and use PB just to post pics not resize them. Good luck.

Yep, easiest way to avoid these problems is to resize them on your PC to the size you want PRIOR to uploading to Photobucket.
