Photobucket is a website where users can upload photos and videos to share with others. It is useful if you want to back up your photos somewhere besides a hard drive. If you want to download an album from Photobucket, there is an option to do so. If you have a free account, you have a set window of time to download an album, but if you have a Pro account, you can download albums as often as you'd like.
