I set up an imgur account so how can I get all my images on photobucket over to imgur?

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Tom, I don't think there is an easy way to do it, but if there is, i'd like to know too! I'm cancelling my PB as soon as my current subscription gets close to expiring...

From my limited I.T. knowledge I would guess that there is no easy way, you would have to download all your images and upload them to the new site. I don't think these sites are linked to some sort of sharing options and that they most probably are on two different servers.

I did manage to transfer them all to another file on my computer by right clicking each photo in my Photobucket library and saving it to the new file. It actually went pretty fast for the 445 pictures I have. The only problem is that the files are small. I'll try uploading them now to imgur and see how that goes.

Thanks,

Tom

I am not a total expert so it is possible that there were other ways of doing it. But I'm glad you got it right.

All the best.
