… who has tremendously improved their photo hosting.
Yes Photobucket was up to no good again today. Although I could load pics without signing in 30 times, it was sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. I allowed for the fact I uploaded 12 pics at once. Really should that take 30 minutes? and then should it take another 15 to get to “My Bucket” so I can acquire the link? (Which usually takes another 1-2 minutes, sometimes longer.)
Not much of a patient person, I decided today was the day to test WordPress’ photo hosting. The last time I used them, they too were horribly slow and the process of acquiring a link was many clicks away. This was 6-8 years ago back when I first changed to WordPress for blogging. At the time Photobucket was lightening fast and I thought the two were complimentary. Wordpress for blogging, Photobucket for photo hosting. This has been true for many years.
I don’t know why, I only know that my Photobucket transactions have been taking longer and longer. Right now, each action requires telling them I don’t want to pay whatever-it-is-they-want-to-charge.
Amazon Cloud was quick and easy. Thought I’d found a winner except that my links would disappear in 48 hours. I mean the code wasn’t even in my post. How’d they edit my code?
WordPress is today’s hero. To be fair, I only loaded 1 pic at a time. Each pic took less than 5 seconds. The Link? Not to worry, just press the ‘Insert Into Post’ button. What an improvement!
