    On Photobucket, the album pages, which show a number of photos in that album, do not show the titles or descriptions. You have to click on a picture to view it individually to see that information.

    But, I do not see any ads on Photobucket. Here is my screen there:



    If you are seeing a lot of ads, perhaps you need to adjust your settings either in Photobucket itself or in your web browser. Some advertisers can insert their ads into other web pages: a kind of malware. This may also be happening with Lew's TinyPix site.

    I would urge all Photobucket users to use the img tags. On the album pages you can click on the gear like emblem that appears when you hover over a picture and then click on Share. A list of tags will appear. The img tag, when copied to this and other sites, will display the picture on the page here so the viewer does not have to click on anything to see it full sized. That is what I did above in this message.

      I don't have to much of a problem with Photobucket except for some of the changes that seem to be made because someone needs to justify their job by making those changes for the only reason that they can.

      I am not an internet expert, but I have been on it since the letters on the screen were amber. I currently have the fastest connection the cable company offers to a home user. I cannot imagine what it might be like for anyone that doesn't. Some of the site designers seem to be oblivious as to what is happening to a home user when they load a page with so much crap that the page never fully loads and is jumping around up down and sideways while it is trying to do so. Yahoo is an adventure into the unknown if you are curious about anything they are showing you. I fail to see what any advertiser is thinking about when their ads come onto the screen in a never ending jumble of crap flying across my view, and they seem to have put a stall feature on whatever needs to happen with the back button.

      The apparent disconnect between all of those involved with the current trend is so very typical of humanities never ending desire to take a good thing and turn it into a perversion of mindless glut.

      So I now issue my universal warning. "When the toilet gets full, there are only two things that can happen. It will either overflow and make a mess, or it will need to be flushed".

      I await as nature comes up to bat.

        topct has a point. Go in any company and see who has the best, fastest, most tricked out PCs. The IS nerds. That goes in spades for a company that develops sites for the internet.

        If the CEOs of those companies had any sense, they would have the computer nerds using machines that were at least two generations behind the times and an operating system that is also at least that old. AND a DIAL UP connection. Then the software they developed would work on your PC and mine.

        Those computer nerds just don't see the problems they create.

          I've found that when the back button doesn't work on a site, often double clicking (sometimes triple clicking) the back button will get you back.

            MyImg


            ...thought I'd throw another one out there that I've used for awhile, don't know if there is a time limit, but don't think so... what they do say:

            Welcome to MyImg!

            MyImg is a free image host but without any of the hassle. No registration is required and you don't have to worry about the image host adding in their own text on your pictures again! Here's just a little info you should know about MyImg:

            The maximum file size for pictures is 2 MB (2048 KB)

            That's it, that's all there is to it. So enjoy and happy uploading!

              I dunno. There are many times when my computer simply slows down to the point where you'd think it has frozen or something- but really it's dealing with a lot of crap in the background that you may not be seeing. All your button pushes are registered, and will operate in turn as processing ability becomes available. Why there should be all this 'computing' going on, doing nothing visible while you sit there and wait it out is bothersome. Many times when I exit the browser, I have to wait for tens of seconds for some background garbage to be taken care of. A really good example of this is when I go to a 'suggested post' on facefook- it doesn't take long for a whole host of 'wait for this' to load. There's too much of this crap going on, IMO.
              I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                Yes for that, it seems to be something new. It's like they've got me and won't let me go.

                  I've had the "back" button rendered inoperable on eBay, and sometimes on forums, because of what seem to be multiple loadings of the same page. If you right-click on the back button, you can see these intermediate instances, and can choose to back in the history to where you want to be. You can also edit the URL in the address bar to return to the home page or at least someplace you want to be.

                  I was a late adopter of high-speed internet access and I used dial-up until perhaps 2010, when I got FIOS. One of the main reasons was that I am in a location in a small valley (or "holler" as the local yokels might say), where TV, radio, and phone reception are poor, but mostly when TV became digital, there was not enough good signal to get even one local channel reliably. I remember once when someone sent me multiple copies of an email that had a 5MB funny movie attached, and with dial-up it took probably 5 minutes to load. I became dismayed when I saw the second and third copy appear, and I turned off my modem. Big mistake. When the download of email was interrupted, the email client flagged an incomplete download and when restarted, it had to download all of the emails including those I had already received.
