Some Questions about pbase.

6 posts in this topic

I have some questions about pbase. I have been using photobucket for a couple of years I guess, and I am tired of all the darn advertising and I know some of you guys use Pbase.

So some questions:

1.) Are you happy with pbase

2.) any cons to using pbase

3.) What package would a person normally need? 500 mb enough?

Do they let you know if you are full?

Any help answering these questions would be appreciated.

Hi Paul.

1. Yes, very happy w/Pbase... excellent worldwide exposure, I've received a fair amount of requests through that site... the Google search bots can get through and find your images easilly... something about tableless CSS code maybe?

2. The heavy $20.00 fee it costs per year... just kidding, no cons whatsoever.

3.I think I have the 500MB package and have used up 338 MB to date... but I have alot of images out there... 500 MB is plenty if you are saving your re-sized images for the web there... which I recommend.

4. Don't know, haven't gotten to the full point yet.

Hope this helped.

Yes That helps. I was looking at the pro subscription to photobucket at $25.00 a year but I like the fact with pbase you can direct someone to your images with a simple url such as pbase/egotistical_maniacle_picutretakingdude.com (that is made up don't go there). I Think I will renew my trial sub and go from there. Thanks for your help Buzz.

Paul, Pbase is great. I have been revamping my site lately and it's nice because you can do a lot of different things to make the site your own. Check out mine for an example. The address is in my signature.

As far as the 500mb goes, it's great plenty. I have 400 photos on mine and I'm using less than 100mb. It's good to have your resized images on there to help prevent people from stealing them. They can still steal them but they're only going to get maybe 4x6 print.

The only con is that if you want to use it to post pictures to a forum I haven't found an easy way to do it. It seems kind of like a lot of messing around so I still post my images to photobucket to put on forums.

Check it out the $22 a year is well worth it.

I would take a look at Smugmug as well. I've got a few accounts through them and my professional site is through them. A lot that you can do with the look of your site and if you decide to start selling everything is in place. Just another option that is worth looking into.

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
