So... (under LJ cut....)
I understand that several people are unable to view the full images on PB's website, only seeing thumbnails and not being able to enlarge them. I'm at a loss, because it works for me (even if I'm not logged in and on different browsers). At the very least, I get to the embedded page, where you can click on the image and get the full sized, or right click (in the lower half of the image) and download/save the full sized image. That shouldn't even be happening, as I remove the segment of code in the image link that directs to the embedded page, allowing one click access to the full sized image. I've done that for a very long time, but now its redirecting anyway... if you're lucky! :/
You might consider trying some of the suggestions posted in the comments from in yesterday's picspam here: http://daily-flan.livejournal.com/359817.html#comments
I'm sorry, but I'm really sort of helpless here in fixing any of these issues. Clearly this is something on PB's side, probably related to their migration to the new site/server on March 18. At that point, I will evaluate my accounts to make sure I can still share pictures in full resolution. I'm assuming yes, but no idea right now. :(
If I have to change to another image host site (no clue who at this point) besides being a massive project on my side, all the images I've posted in the last 2 years will most likely disappear, with all the links broken as I'll be closing those accounts. So short of going back and editing the code on every single image in every single post, I'm not sure how to avoid that.
Hopefully it won't come to that.
I've stuck with PB this long because it has always had good tools for managing a LOT of images and with capping and art, I have thousands online. Bulk uploading, generating image code and just bulk image management in general are a necessity. Not many sites offer that, at least not free.
In the meantime, I have to stick with PB for now, as I don't really have the time to look for a new site *right now*.
An alternative I've considered is uploading a zip file of all the images in a post and linking it. Of course, that link would be temporary. I don't pay for permanent file hosting, only free sites. Its not a perfect solution, but is one.
It also appears that this is affecting all of my posts, not just recent ones, and not just ones from one particular PB account.
I'm sorry. I'm extremely irritated with PB right now. I cannot find any way to contact them or report the issue, as all the "forum topics" I can find on the site, are closed to comments. :/ Nice. Great job, guys. No way to comment or report issues, even for a *paid* account. >:(
Anyway, my apologies for the problems (and this ramble). Wish I could make it right somehow.
