Hey Gregg,
Just tried to join photo bucket to post some pictures. Not cars, but my first ever try at a diorama. "Used car lot" which you guys have helped me through. Not great, but just wanted to show you what came of it. Photo bucket want's an on going charge of $9.90 per month for "prize drawings". Not interested in their prizes, just wanted to post some photos free. Is this just a scam or what? :D

I signed up for photobucket about a month ago. its been free for me so far, and works pretty good too.
I havent seen anything about a 9.90 a month charge, maybe thats to get you to upgrade to the "pro" edition??

Been using a free account for two years. I do remember seeing the oppurtunity to go "Pro" as they call it and I think it does cost about 10 a month. Thats probably what ya seen

Photobucket is the only photo hosting site I've ever used...been using it for years. It's always been free, I see no reason to upgrade to any "pro" version, whatever that is. The free version has worked flawslessly for me all these years.

BTW...the "pro" version Is only $3/month, not $10.

It allows you to post bigger, high res pics. Good if you want to let grandma download and print out photo-quality pix of the latest baby pictures, but no real reason to go "pro" in order to post photos here. The free version is all you need.

:( O.K. guys, my mistake. Added charge is for "pro".

:rolleyes: But, now on to the next problem. I am completly PC dumb. I have windows xp home addition. Can anyone walk me through how to get the photos to photobucket? They have a tutorial, but I can't understand it. I can log on and select photos from "my photos" but can't get them transfered. Gotta be some dumb thing that I'm not doing.

Have not tried PhotoBucket but I do have an Imageshack account that is totally FREE to use. I am also not "One" with my computer and I was able to get pics. on Imageshack and post them on websites like this. If PhotoBucket is not working for you its worth a try to check out www.imageshack.us The best part is the pics. do not expire like with some photo hosting sites( No red X after a certain time ) Just though I would share my good experence posting pics.

I can't get them from my PC to photobucket. I must need some special download or something. Still experimenting.
