Migrating from Photobucket - HOWTO

Post by hybrid » Mon Jul 10, 2017 11:21 am

Because photobucket is shit, here's a quick howto on how I am slowly migrating my pics to postimage.
Sign up to postimage is free. You don't HAVE to sign up - you can upload anonymously, but you won't be able to manage the images later if you do that.

First, search for your own posts on this website that use photobucket using a similar search to the following pic.
hybiepoo is the photobucket username that should appear in each of your photobucket links.

This should return a list of posts where you have used a photobucket link from your own photobucket account.
Next, right click on the subject of the post and open in a new tab.

Click on the edit button.

Copy the URL from the post, then go to the postimage page and select "Upload from URL" at the top.

Paste the URL into the box and upload.
Image

Copy the forum hotlink URL and then paste it on the website in place of the original photobucket URL.
