Download all the Facebook photos you're tagged in using PhotoGrabber

Pop quiz: what's the largest photo site on the web? Flickr? Photobucket? Picasa? Nope, it's Facebook. Like me, you might find that fact a bit surprising, since we don't immediately think of Facebook as a photo sharing site -- that's just one of its features. What's even more interesting when thinking about Facebook as a photo sharing site is that it has a built-in permission system that says...

Move photos from Flickr to Picasa Web, Photobucket, etc. with Migratr

Migratr does exactly what its name suggests -- if you insert an 'e' before the last letter, anyway. It migrates your images from one image-hosting site to another. Other than sounding a bit like an angry person looking for their cheese grater, and moving images around the Web, that's about it. It preserves meta data, descriptions and tags -- and even album organization. What I can't tell you is...

3 photo sharing sites for your new shutterbug - Holiday Gift Guide

If you know someone on your gift list is getting a camera or is a new shutterbug, you might want to consider getting them a "pro" photo sharing account where they can upload all their new photos. This is a nice gift for several reasons: 1. A pro account is a must have since most free accounts have a storage limit that the average photographer will easily exceed. 2. Pro accounts are ad free. 3....

Photosharing - comparing Flickr, Photobucket and Zooomr

How do you do decide which photosharing site to go with? If free is your criteria, there are certainly many options to choose from. Most free photo sharing sites are ad supported and come with a certain GB capacity limit. If you upgrade to a pro account, which can run anywhere from $20-$25 per year, there are typically no limits and no advertisements. We took a look at the most popular...

Photobucket gets image editing features thanks to FotoFlexer

Photobucket, a popular image-hosting site, will get basic image-editing features (resizing, cropping, coloring, rotating, etc.) thanks to FotoFlexer, an in-browser, web-based picture editor. For those who use both services, this is probably unsurprising as FotoFlexer already lets users save their edited pictures to their Photobucket accounts -- as well as any Facebook, Myspace, Yahoo Flickr,...

FlickrFan brings photos to your mac/HDTV

Dave Winer, the pervasive and inventive programmer, has released an early beta version of his new program called FlickrFan. The new application is a screensaver program that can display photos from any RSS feed with media enclosures. These pictures could be from Flickr, Photobucket, the AP, or any source that is RSS enabled. This is a very smart use of RSS that displays high quality photos on...

Add Photobucket pictures to Myspace comments

Myspace, which acquired photo-sharing powerhouse Photobucket back in May, now allows users to easily insert their Photobucket pictures into Myspace comments. To take advantage of this feature, just login to Myspace and attempt to comment on another user's profile. When the comment box appears, enter your witty, extremely original comment, then click the "Add image from Photobucket" link. You'll be...

Fotolog gets snapped up, with new plans to make some real cash

Leading photo blogging website Fotolog, has been bought up by the leading Europen interactive company Hi Media based in Paris, for a little less than the competition. But does it really matter when you can monetize the service better? Fox acquired Photobucket for about $250 million earlier this year, and this deal with Fotolog was only for about $90 million. Sure Fox has deep pockets, but Hi...

MySpace buys Photobucket for more than $275 million

Wow, didn't really see this one coming. Less than a month after blocking access to Photobucket videos, MySpace has changed tactics and purchased the photo and video hosting site for over $275 million. While Photobucket and MySpace had a history of fighting, the two always played well together from a user perspective, with Photobucket hosting many of the images users post on their MySpace pages....

Yahoo! to drop Photos service for Flickr, video uploads coming soon

In a move that many consider a long time coming, Yahoo! should be announcing the closure of Yahoo! Photos some time today. Michael Arrington at TechCrunch got the scoop last night at a CEO dinner for Outcast, a PR event, from Brad Garlinghouse (Yahoo SVP Communications & Communities) and Stewart Butterfield (Cofounder of Flickr). The two said Photos would be slowly shut down over the next few...

MySpace blocks Photobucket videos

MySpace yesterday blocked its users from posting videos hosted on Photobucket on their profiles. This means that thousands of videos that had already been posted are no longer available. Users upload 50,000 videos a day to Photobucket, which is already one of the internet's largest photo hosting services. Photos hosted with Photobucket can still be posted on MySpace. On the one hand, MySpace is...

Photobucket flash video editor

Photobucket is set to make an announcement that will allow users of its personal media management service -- which stores and shares images and videos -- a way to utilize flash to edit video's online. The free service is said to be open in beta this month to premium customers, and rolled out to everyone in March. The web based video editor will be timeline based and allow users to mix photos and...

MySpace CEO thinks he knows web 2.0

Peter Chernin, CEO of MySpace's parent company, Newscorp thinks web 2.0 is driven by MySpace. He is quoted as saying "If you look at virtually any Web 2.0 application, whether its YouTube, whether it's Flickr, whether it's Photobucket or any of the next-generation Web applications, almost all of them are really driven off the back of MySpace." He is naive and needs to do his research. It is true...
