Photobucket downloader

There s a free version of this but it only allows 100 photos at a time to be downloaded. The upgraded version is $1.99

This is a Chrome (google) extention by the way and you purchase it at the google play store or just do a search for photobucket album downloader. After it is installed into your extentions log into photobucket and go to your library.

You will see two download menus. The regular Photobucket one and the Google extensions. Guess which one you use? One you hit download it will "fetch" the album and start downloading to your download folder. Sometimes it will stall and if it does, either hit re-fresh or exit the album and try again. It will work until photobucket tries to do a work around to disable it.

Good heavens. I can't believe people have to pay, even a penny, to retrieve their own files.

Looks like I amscrayed at just the right time. God, PB really sucks, but then again, it always did.

After getting your own property back from Photobucket I would, again, recommend imgur.

For those not willing to run their own domain and would rather have a free image hosting site, I recommend reading about imgur and their CEO/founder, Alan Schaaf.

I highly doubt they will ever do what Photobucket has done. It was created as a gift to users sick of hosting sites like Photobucket, etc.

I bought this and installed it a couple days ago. It did not work the first time. Today I tried the free version and it worked great. It has the limit that it will only download the first 100 photos in an album. It also downloads a compressed version of the files.

With that success I tried the $1.99 version again and now it is working fine now! Photobucket's own download seems to be "broken" so this utility was easily worth the $1.99 to me. Thanks for the advice.
