More about Photobucket and my job search!  
You no what I found out about photobucket by accident? I can still copy a picture from them into my full account but it just doesn't let you download anymore. Um okay so what's the point of that? I hate that I can't download icons anymore. I don't need anymore but that's not the point. Why isn't there another photo holding site out there like it? I really need those codes under the picture and I want more icons to add to my hundreds of icons. And I can't download anymore of summershobbit's banners. That's really awful I'm just going to tear out my hair oh and I'm suffering from allergies badly today. *sniffs*

I have a flicker account but you can't post individual pictures it seems without paying and I can't pay for an account probably ever.

Good news I found another job so I'll get more hours and my 2 and 1/2 months of searching is over. I start at Home Depot this Monday. We'll see how long I can work two jobs.

I think I'm done with all my news oh and my daughter had fun at her mixer.

Here's some eye candy *hugs*

Congrats on the job! My nephew's dad works at HD, and he seems to like it.

You can put icons up directly into LJ, did you know that? Why do you put them in photobucket?

Go here to upload:


Edit: I have a free flickr account and can post pictures, although there's a limit for a free account. Not sure why you're having trouble with it.

I didn't no that someone told me about photobucket ages ago so that's what I used. I don't have a paid lj account does that matter?

I tried posting something from flicker and it posted a link to the page and all the pictures. Did I mention how computer illeterate I can be sometimes?
Primprimula_baggins on August 30th, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
Even with a free account you should be able to upload icons at that link. LJ will tell you how many icons you have left as you use them up, and when it's reached the limit, you won't be able to upload anymore. I think it's self explanatory, but if you need help with it, let me know.

I've never used flickr to post photos in LJ, and I'm guessing it would just take to the flickr page, like you said. But you can still put photos there for free. I have a flickr account just for photos I want to share with my family. I don't use it for LJ. :)

I have tons of icons in my lj folder to use and I bet I could name them so I no who to credit and icons would be fine.

What's with photobucket? I can't upload more than one photo at a time anymore. Argh, that sucks endlessly.

lijahlover: Dom in Black and whitelijahlover on August 30th, 2009 01:33 am (UTC)
They are changing so much. Do you have a paid account?

This is what happened to us with a free account

I can't explain the process I just no what I find when going to my account it's easy to confuse me and they have managed to do that here's what a friend of mine posted

If you have a free account on Photobucket... consider yourself screwed over. As dekolette pointed out to me today, they have recently changed around the account options for free users.

Old account options:

1 GB Space / 25 GB bandwidth

New account options:

500 MB Space / 10 GB bandwidth

They try to force their accounts for purchase on you in a rather mean way, that's for sure. Not that they treat the customers who pay any better. As I just learned they've dropped the image size for paid accounts from 5 MB to 2 MB.

Naturally no e-mail was send out to inform you about these changes in policy.
Primprimula_baggins on August 30th, 2009 01:50 am (UTC)
I have a paid account, but those new limits won't affect most people even with free accounts, I don't think. Only people who use it for a big number of large photos would be effected.

Everytime I go there, it's different. But once I logon, it's exactly the same.

Just make sure the photos you put there are semi-small in size. That means don't post any big high resolution photos, for example.

And you can always delete some photos if you get up to the maximum space. Some people want to store gillions of pictures there, and they probably don't need to.
lijahloverlijahlover on August 30th, 2009 02:10 am (UTC)
That's true and I deleted a ton but didn't change anything. I'm not sure how much I'd have to delete.
Primprimula_baggins on August 30th, 2009 02:42 am (UTC)
If you go way up to the top of your photobucket account when you're logged in, and click on the "Account Options" link, it will give you your statistics in the "Account Dashboard" area.

For example, here is mine:

Username p_b
Account Type Pro (good through 04/06/2010)
Member Since 06/10/2004
Total files 4425

Account storage used: 586 MB (2%)
Total Available: 25 GB

Account bandwidth used 214 MB

You can see that I've only used 2% of my total storage space. You can see your space and how much you've used up by looking in that area. It also shows how much bandwidth you've used for the month. Every month it resets to zero. I seriously doubt you ever use up your bandwidth each month.

Anyway, that will give you some idea of how much you need to delete, if any.

There are other things you can set on that screen if you want to, also.

Edit: If you use your photobucket for your icons, then anytime you get into your journal or anytime anyone views your journal, they use up your bandwidth. That's a good reason to not use photobucket for your icons.

But also, anytime you post a photo in your LJ and it links to your photobucket, that uses your photobucket bandwidth whenever you or someone else looks at that photo in your LJ. :)

Thanks I'll do that and look :)

*butts in* I thought that too, but I discovered that after you hit the upload button, you hold down control to select more than one file/pic and then it will do multiple file uploads again. I was cussing, too until I finally read the tiny message that says "Use CTRL to select multiple files." Hope that helps.

What does the message on Johnny's pic say? And how the hell did you get a signed pic in the first place?

*is very jealous*
lijahloverlijahlover on August 31st, 2009 05:07 am (UTC)
I'm not sure what it says actually I got it from photobucket. It's not mine :)

You could use your LJ scrapbook. I know a lot of people forget they even have such a thing, but it is a lot of space, has security settings and LJ isn't ever going to delete your photos for TOS violations like Photobucket did. It took me just a bit to get onto the interface, but it really is quite handy and has some cool features like posting pictures directly into an entry for you. No coding. Just a thought . . .
lijahloverlijahlover on August 30th, 2009 04:16 am (UTC)
I foget I have it and can use it thanks :)
