photobucket: flock.  
I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately, but I've been marathoning Angel and making Buffy and Angel mood themes, and they take so long that I haven't had anything finished in the past while. I'm going to work on requests this weekend, though.

The real reason for this post is this: I get a lot of comments complaining about how long it takes to upload themes to Photobucket, and thankfully PB has created a new tool called Flock. It's meant to be a web browser that helps you upload photos and insert them into comments on myspace or blogs, but it's perfect for uploading photos in batches. You don't have to use the web browser, you can just open it and go to Tools - Photo Uploader, and then "Choose Photos" on the top left. Select all your 132 mood images, and then go to Upload on the bottom. Make sure you select "Do not resize photos" in the Options window when it comes up, and you can also select to add your images to a sub-album to keep them organized. It's fantastic, it took me about 5 minutes to upload a full mood theme.

I'm adding this to the instructions post now, hopefully this will help!

=O I love you. Lol. Thanks for pointing this out. Not only for mood themes, but I make icon batches of anywhere from 100 to 300 hundred, so this will be very handy. I probably never would've noticed this feature.

i was wondering if you'd like to affiliate with my icon journal? it's just getting started, but if you want to take a look it's rum_savvy. thanks for your time : )
[wow, that sounds so...formal :P ]

Thanks for the info! I will definitely be taking advantage of that new feature. :)

On a side note—is it just me, or did anyone else read "Flock" to mean"friends lock"?

It's not just you. :) That was my first thought then I figured it had something to do with how you share your album or sub-album (using the password method) to friends.

euterpeslullaby - Thank you SO much for sharing this info. It's perfect (even though I just uploaded my new mood theme last week). However, now I can store a few others for quick access when I'm in the mood to change things up on my journal. :D

I had no trouble uploading my theme, I just did them in batches. But FLOCK sounds pretty amazing, it does so much. Thanks for the heads up.
