I know Photobucket will provide the link URL that can be used to present pictures here in JeepTalk (or anywhere img or html code is supported) but is there a place in Photobucket that will provided the pictures in various sizes?

Not in the free version and the last time i looked into the paid version it basically gave you more storage and bandwidth, no ads and bigger photo and file sizes.

Are you looking for an alternative to flikr?

I have a free PhotoBucket account as well which I have had before Flickr. I think Flickr is way better and a much faster website than PhotoBucket and the multiple size photos is a great feature.

I actually thought that photobucket in the past allowed (on the upload) you a choice of what size to convert to as you uploaded, if none was taken than 800x600 would be used. Are you guys sure that this is no longer :sos:

Our Jeeptalk Gallery automatically brings it down to 800x600 and creates a 640x480 as well when you upload any bigger than this.

I've seen the different flickr sizes and I like them, the only portion that I did not like was that they do not do 640x480 and go smaller. Now that JT is allowing 800x600 does Flickr do this size? I also like the flickr upload for videos, they are much sharper than youtube. JT gallery allows videos as well but they take up too much room and your better off using either flickr or youtube for this since they are free.

Yeah, you're still able to choose the size of the upload or set it at a default size but i think what he's asking for is mutliple size options in the same upload. You upload one pic and it gives you the IMG code for several different sizes.

Yeah PhotoBucket does that but for me that uses the website as a picture backup solution Flickr is much better as I can upload in full resolution and still have the ability to get different sizes without jumping thru hoops.

The recently added the 640 size (Medium 640)

The Photo below has these options for me to use as I choose
Square (75 x 75), Thumbnail (100 x 75), Small (240 x 179), Medium 500 (500 x 373), Medium 640 (640 x 477), Large (1024 x 763), Original (2581 x 1922)

Good to know on photobucket on the upload.

Darn Willy, that is a great shot and resolutiong comimg out of that iPhone. :ya: Some of it has to be Photochoped. :rof:

I agree and like the options of Flickr, what happened to the 800x600 size :sos: Write them and tell them to put it in.

Does the free Flickr allow for all these features or did you have to pay :nurse:

Sorry but that picture was not photochoped. I do not have those skills.
There is an app called Pro HDR that I used to take the picture. What it does is it takes 2 photos and merges them to get a perfect light and dark regions. All Automatic. All I did was aim and shoot it did the rest for me.

Yes, I think the only restriction with the free is bandwidth and space

Ok, so the HDR app photchopped it for you. :sos: just kidding.
Works really good, wonder if it will work with 3GS. Also CS3 and up has a feature to recover some of the highlights if they are not to blown out. Take a look at your pic on the right side of the clouds. Bring it to CS and see how it works.

Good to hear on the Flickr free, I'm sure one would run out of space eventually but it's a great tool. :nurse: Keep harping on them on the 800x600.

Even though JT now allows 800 by 600 I still prefer to link 640 by 480 because it fits better in the forum

Yep - the reason I asked was because people like to upload the pix high resolution so they can be shared and printed with good quality but pix get used on forums as well where there might be size restriction. Without a down size feature posters are left with the tremendous hassle of making multiple copies in different sizes and having to uploading all of them. I'm just looking for a way to making posting pix easy and satisfy the sizing requirements.

My concern is if it is not easy to meet posting requirements some folks migth just be discouraged and ultimately the pix never make it to content.

Anyway if anyone knows of a way, let me know.

BTW: Righteous frick'n shoot Willy! I see the "point and shoot camera" market share loosing out to things like the iPhones real soon. Dang that's nice! And yes I'm a HDR convert...

Still... hard to give up non-HDR.

That is why I think Flickr is the best photo share site out there. It is not as easy as PhotoBucket to get the links but I prefer the multiple size presentation. It makes my life easier when I want to send family members photos I just sent the link and I am done with it rather than shrinking the picture to a good size for email.


But like I said earlier, PhotoBucket is very slow for me compared to Flickr .

I have ImageShack, PhotoBucket and Flickr

Picasa web album which is Googles photo share site provides multiple sizes like flicker and defaults to 640x###. The free account hasa 1GB limit. Linking takes a little tech literacy but very doable.

That is a sweet app, got it late last night.

Google dropped their videos since they purchased youtube. They do have a nice Picasa but as Bill said it's kind of tricky.

Bill you mentioned the Photomatix HDR tool, don't mean to get away from the topic but is this a photoshop plugin which also has HDR :rof:

Btw, here are some nice free tools that will help other take the pain out of resize.

Gecko & Fly I thought this one was the best.
Fastone
High Quality Photo Resizer
Image Resizer
Online Web Resizer

All of these are free and they have been at one time or other recommended but I have never used them myself. If any of you have let us know your thoughts.

The Photomatic product comes in two flavors - stand alone & Photoshop plug in. I used the stand alone. Simple to use and quick to produce good results. There are a lot of other HDR products but none was so fast to get usable HDR images.

As for basic edit tools that include resizing there are many but the issue with Photobucket is it just doesn't seem to make it easy at all to provide sized images from the hosting service.
