Default photobucket image retrieval

A follow up to Greg’s remarks about photo bucket I did not want to take Bonky's thread of topic so new thread posted here

Ah yes the less said about photo bucket the better
All my links to images on here and other forums are all dead now but I still have a ton of images on photo bucket I want to retrieve if possible

So my question is can anyone tell me how I can retrieve all my images back off photo bucket without deleting them as I can’t see how to do it
Thank
colin

I think there are several ways, Colin but what I rather laborious did was send them all to myself in emails and transfer from there to my personal album.

Yes a wake-up call as to the ethics of some web companies I think. I too lost my pictures and all the links went dead when Virgin deleted my web space. It was only a few MB hosting a hundred or so images perhaps but it's nigh on impossible to host the images elsewhere then go back to all the sites inc this one and remake all the links. So I put it down to (bad) experience and don't trust these cavalier companies now

Ah yes thereís a link in photo bucket to Google drive but It looks like you can only send one image at a time and thereís a slight lost in image quality I think to
