Imageshack had detours for you after clicking an image so I didnt use them.Photobucket didnt shrink my images because I used the 1 mb option.But it did start recompressing them to about 50% of what they were at upload.
I would say,well thats what I get for using a free service but they have been doing it to their pro customers too.Some people had thousands of images ruined.
Photobuckets response once they finally began fessing up was that pay customers could now use a hi rez option from now on for the STORAGE of the image but for bandwidth reasons,download image links would be compressed.
Which means they dont even know their own business...its not about storage,its about showing others the image,in the quality that you uploaded.
geez,I would never trust my images to an online backup...I just needed linkage.
