How to backup photos to Photobucket?

Last Updated :

Photobucket was launched in the year 2003 ans was founded by Alex Welch and Darren Crystal. Photobucket is one of the very popular image sharing and hosting websites. The website is designed to preserve and share photos with friends and other users online. So far, Photobucket hosts more than 10 billion images from 100 million registered members, who upload more than four million images and videos per day.

Online photo sharing sites / services like Photobucket can be used to backup photos. The biggest advantage of Photobucket is that it allows you to create a range of photo folders and facilitate you to password protect them. It also allows you to share photos with anyone you want.

  • Choose a Gallery for Upload to Photobucket. You can do so by clicking on "Library" and then select "view library". Here, select the album you want to upload photos to.

  • Click on orange colored 'Upload now' button. This will open up a screen where it say 'Drag n drop your photos & videos' or 'browse Files'.

    Note: You can simple drag and drop photos from your computer or browse through files and folders by clicking 'Browse' button.

  • Select the photos you want to upload and click 'Open'.

  • All the selected photos will then be uploaded to your Photobucket account.

PicBackMan does exactly what it's supposed to. It's quick and efficient. It runs unobtrusively in the background and has done an excellent job of uploading more than 300GB of photos to 2 different services. After having lost a lot of personal memories to a hard drive crash, it's nice to know that my photos are safe in 2 different places.

LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer

I pointed PicBackMan at a directory structure, and next time I looked - all the photos had uploaded! Pretty cool. I use SmugMug and while I really like it, the process of creating directories in is pretty laborious when you need to make 80+ at a time. This was a breeze. Thank you!
