Resizing and Bulk Uploading Photos in Photobucket


Recommended Posts

Almost all my pics taken are high res photos. In order to post a pic I have been opening the photo in a photo editing software than saving it s a suitable low res tenamed pic then uploading to photoshop. After uploading I can then grab the image link for posting in a thread. Is there any easier way to do this??? Especially problematic for bulk pics for photo essays which I tend not to do due PIA factor.

Suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

J4B

Okay. Assuming you're using PhotoBucket, here's how to preset the file size/resolution.

1. Go to the upload page

2. In the upper r/h corner of the "drag-n drop" frame, click on the tools icon. It looks like a small gear

3. A window will open that allows you to pre-select the display size.

4. Click the radio button for the size you want. I use 800 x 600

5. Save the new setting

Once you have the setting where you want it, you should be able to do bulk uploads of your pictures and have them display at the correct size.

Using drag-n drop, you can upload a bunch of pics at once. Although it may take some time, you don't have to sit and watch, you can start the upload and go do something else while the data is moving through the interweb.

Stand by, Pierre. I'm going to try something on PB to see if there's an easier way than one by one.

If you figure that one out Tim, you'll get the Nobel Prize for Science. Or you can have Brad's job. :laugh:

Thanks...that's exactly what I was looking for since I only really use photobucket for posting UJ pics.

Yep! This is one of 26 pics I uploaded using drag-n drop and I didn't need to resize it manually. Yea!!!

Sweet! I don't know how many times I've asked that question before and nobody seemed to know how.

Thank you Tim!! I'll be giving that a try next time I load pics!

Thanks valuman, I've thought there had to be a way to do this on PB, but never was able to figure out how. That makes it much easier than what I have been doing...resizing one at a time.

You guys are welcome. I've always had to re-size one pic at a time in the past and this is a huge improvement over doing that.

Brad, feel free to c/p these instructions in the how to thread in the photography forum if you think others could benefit from reading.

Ill change Title and move and Pin this thread to Upland Photo Forum when it drops blow scroll. Remind me if I forget...This is good, since I don't use Photobucket and have no idea how to navigate it. I save the photos I post here to the UJ server. I also resize in Photoshop before but I work in PS so much, doing each photo individually doesn't really bother me since I tend to tweak and crop individually.

Well, in a way. You did ask a question that other people have been seeking an answer to, themselves. Apparently there is, on occasion, some value in that depending upon who sees or hears the question.

If you want to do this locally on photos stored on your PC, Faststone Image Viewer is a freeware product with a batch rezise/rename utility built into it.  The product has been around since 2004, and is very stable with no bloatware
