A little experiment with Photobucket

posted in: BLOG | 0

I had a junk email from Photobucket this morning, offering 25Gb storage space for a couple of dollars a month. I’ve had an account for a long time and it used to be useful to share images with but I noticed on the email it said ‘sharing images without a watermark’ (or something like that).

Watermark? I thought, I don’t remember a watermark. This must be something new. So I went off to my account (1% storage space used, but mainly rubbish), cleaned up the account and added a few images.

On creating a post on WordPress and linking an image via Photobucket I wondered how the watermark might show up. And here it is. Not exactly subtle, eh?

In conclusion. I don’t think I’ll be using Photobucket to store and share images.
