Did you know that photobucket has recently, WITHOUT telling their members, compressed your files? I noticed a lot of my graphics were suddenly of lower quality. They're all icons so obviously they don't take up much space. I opened another account and tested it, and apparently photobucket will start compressing your files if you upload using the "1MB" option. However, according to this
thread, which quotes from users' interaction with photobucket officials, photobucket will continue compressing your files into lower quality
. That definitely sucks for people who use photobucket to upload graphics and arts. Even though I found a way around the compressing (not
using the 1MB upload option), I feel like it's temporary and photobucket will continue compressing all
your files with no warning.
So my question to you is what are other alternatives?
I know there's tiny pic, imageshack, and LJ Scrapbook, but I want to use them as a last resort since I make dozens of icons at a turn and uploading is a pain.
Thanks for your feedback.
