help with Photobucket

Posted by casi (My Page) on

I thought that one of the purposes of photobucket was to share photos. My daughter has uploaded some photos but when I save them to my pictures folder they are out of proportion. Is there something that I can do or is this just the way it works. I thought about sharing them via Facebook and then saving to my folders but my first attempt at doing so didn't work. Thanks in advance!

Are you saying that when you look at them on the screen they are in proportion but after you download them they are out of proportion?

RE: help with Photobucket

yes, they are messed up!

RE: help with Photobucket

It sounds like your photobucket upload options are not set right.

Log into Photobucket
Go to the arrow next to your member name on the upper right. Choose account settings
Then choose Album settings
On that page click on View my Upload Options
My setting is 640 X 480 and that works well for me.
Be sure to click Save

Try that and see how it works. If I'm understanding you right, that should do it.

Thanks Sue, that did help but something weird is going on. My daughter actually uploaded onto my photobucket account. The first few pics she added to one of my current photo albums, but I guess that went slow so maybe she did the multi loader option so it is one single album. Those pictures are still not right but if I do the pictures in my album they download just fine. I'll have to ask her if that is what she did, but why would it make any difference?

RE: help with Photobucket

Sorry, I'm clueless now.

RE: help with Photobucket

I'm clueless also. It has to be something to do with the way she uploaded them.

RE: help with Photobucket

Ok, so did your daughter upload pics from 'your' computer to your photobucket account, or was she uploading them from a different computer?

(I'm just kind of thinking out loud here)
