Fingers of Fury!

Hey guys. I'm currently using Photobucket for my guild-image savings and backups.  But one thing I am noticing is that eachtime i upload a photo to there it takes my .png files (did rightclick > Properties, they are true PNG files) and changes them to .jpg.

Does anyone know of a site that DOESN"T do that? or know how I can change photobucket to not do that? I'd use the guildportal uploader as its saving correctly as .png based on the url but im afraid of how much images we have that we'll hit the max storage and still have stuff left.

heeeeeeelp XD

I use png files on photobucket all the time. I don't think there is an option to convert them to jpg, but I am wondering that since png files tend to be large, did you adjust your upload setting on photobucket?

In the "Upload Images & Video" box, you'll see a selection menu that starts with "reduce to". I set mine to "1 megabyte file size" (for the free account). Maybe this is the problem?
