@wdwmagic Steve, I wanted to say I think the new layout is a huge upgrade! I felt obligated to post this after seeing how much flack there has been, but most new things are lambasted at first, people generally avoid change whenever possible. Once I took the time to learn the changes, I can see the many benefits you've added. Also, thank you for keeping light blue a background option. You might want to make this the standard as most people seem to want it!:D

I know that I have previously posted pictures, I can tell because of my avatar :D .... but help!!
I don't remember having a flickr account but I thought I had a photo album/photobucket maybe.

No, the albums did not carry over. Your best bet is to open an account with Photobucket or Flickr or whatever, then follow the directions Steve listed at the beginning of this thread. If you need help, just ask.

The iPad currently does not support uploading via web based upload forms. This will be changing with iOS 6 later this year though.
