It now seems to be ok on all the options for me, the only thing i did was change the reduce image size from 1024x768 to 800x600 to suit the pic's i was uploading. I normally leave it set to 1024x768.
I wonder if anyone else is still having the problems.

Photobucket offers 500MB free storage (was 1 GB, but they lowered it to 500mb 19-AUG-2009). This reduction of storage space frustrated users, who were locked out of adding new images to their accounts unless they agreed to pay the upgrade fee.

Sorry about that!

EDIT: Just had a go....as long as you use a different email address you can have as many accounts as you like....and you can have as many email addresses as you like from Hotmail.......result :P
