Photobucket, What Went Wrong?

I have to admit, I am pretty upset. I have used Photobucket for online photo storage for the last two years. One of the features I love the most about it is that I have a Photobucket app that automatically loads every picture I take with my phone within seconds of clicking. I am able to go to the Photobucket website, copy a URL, and post it on my blog within minutes. I despise (and never remember) to actually plug my phone in, upload pictures to my computer, load them to a photo sharing site, then onto blog. It's too much work for me. So, I was pretty upset in the middle of Avery's birthday party, when my pictures just stopped uploading. I keep getting error messages. I looked on their website and they are getting complaint after complaint of the uploading feature for the app.

I can't find another site/app combo that does this. Not one that is free and not one like this. I really don't know what to do now....how do you upload pictures? Do you have a site that works like this?

Ugh - what a pain. I'm sorry to hear it's not working! My Mac has a photo card slot, so I take the card out of my camera and plug it into my computer, edit them with CameraRaw and Photoshop Elements, then I name the photos by date and activity (year month day EVENT), save them as JPEGs, and THEN upload them to the blog or facebook. It's a time-consuming, tedious process. I would love a simpler one but am scared to change how I know to do it. I hope Photobucket starts working again for you soon!
