hedge_fund You guys need to go into the settings and switch "easy linking mode" on. That way all the pics have the image links right there and you don't have to click into them.

Calmia22 I don't upload that often, but I did last night. Too many clicks for my taste, and I live out in the sticks so more clicks=bad. I will be trying another site as well.

I don't know then. Mine works perfectly. Pics go were I tell them to and if I just send them to the library, the pics just show up in the order they were added, newest at the top. I've not done anything to mine as far as settings. One day it was the old version, next day I logged in it was the new version. Been just fine thus no reason for me to switch.

rbarn There is an option to go back to the old format on photobucket. It still looks and works the same for me as it has for last 3years

lauraleellbp I don't think you have the new version... does yours have a library? Do all your picture uploads default into your main album no matter which album you TRY to upload them into?

Nubster I just don't get where everyone is saying it's so different and such a pain. With mine, the look has changed, the albums flopped from the right side of the screen to the left, but essentially everything else is the same. Each thumbnail pic has the img code to copy and paste into threads just like it did before. I don't have to click at all to get the code. It's right there in my face. One click and I'm in the album of my choice and it's the same story. Thumbnails all with img codes below the pic.

This.

Your version must be different because mine works exactly the same as it used to, just looks different. Oh well. I'm still happy enough with it so no point in switching. I do have numerous folders and at least a couple thousand pics in there as well. Still working like a champ.

Nope, not any more.

I tried out the new version for a week right after it came out, got annoyed, and switched back. But at the end of the month they're automatically switching everyone, so I went ahead and made the switch again to try and make myself learn to use it.

Nope, too annoyed, read through the forums and found everyone else just as annoyed with all the same things as I am, so I'm ditching em LOL
