This question is somewhat timely. Photobucket just came out of a serious outage. People could not access photos for about two days, if the story is correct. There are a bunch of people that use their service for business, as paid subscribers even, and it affected their business traffic. I noticed that all the images on my WIP had been reduced to dead links. As of this morning they seem to be back and running.
I don't find the process of posting images particularly difficult, but what is somewhat annoying to me are popups that seem designed to take you where you don't want to go, preventing your work flow. If I try closing them, I get routed to another popup page. It is very annoying, and at times, it has even locked up the site for me. I have found a work around, which I won't post here. God forbid that they find out, then "fix"... my fix.
Anyway, I'm not paying for it and I am willing, I guess, to put up with some of this. Although, I feel, I shouldn't have to.
If the original poster would like some help with this, feel free to PM me.
