For what its worth, and my 2 cents ain't worth much lol.
But what I have started doing is, after taking my pics I upload to the correct folder on my desktop in my albums. I'm old school and still have a folder on the desktop with all my pics in it. (Its easy to find that way) Unlike the way many pic programs want to organize my stuff, I am all about date taken and name.
Anyways after the upload I look at the pics I want to post, leaving one window open with my pic browser showing. Then I double click the desktop folder and go to said named folder, highlight the pics I want referring back to my pic browser if needed and then rt click. I have an option right there to re-size, I choose large, usually gets me down to under 100kb.
I go one step further and put them in a 2010 re-sized folder with a name. When I go to upload, after I do one then it will reopen right to where I need to be to click the next pic. I have nothing but excellent results uploading this way. Maybe its since the size is small.
This sounds like alot of steps but I would guess that when doing this I probably spend less then a minute from album to re-sized folder. And ya it would be way cool to click 5 or 10 pics and edit my text but I guess I will live with it like it is for now.
PS..... photobucket dont like me at all. It always locks up and I mean bad. Most of the time it takes a reboot.
