Photobucket Basics

Posted in

Please read the Nav.Net Basics chapter if you are not familiar with basics of Nav.Net usage.

 Topic 1: Searching from open PB galleries

This search is based on the basic Photobucket Search. Go to “Search” page, click “PB Search” category. Type a keyword. Click [>] button to start the search. Click [>] button once more to get more results. Here is an example. I’ll search for the keyword “girls”.

The search results are the galleries that contains the keyword. Thumbnail labels shows the count of images in the gallery. DoubleClick to a thumbnail to see album content.

We’ve searched for “girls”. Hmm not bad. Nav.Net found many girls :)

Topic 2: Searching for PB users open galleries.

Maybe you want to search for a user name. Just select the “P.Bucket user search” category and type the username to the search box. Navnet will display result if the user exists and has an open gallery. If you don’t know the username but you have an image URL, you can find the username. The Photobucket URL’s contains the usernames. If we have an image URL like http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u249/volcomg1rl9/nextdoor.jpg the username is volcomg1rl9. The /u249/ part comes after the /albums/ is the album number. The word next to album number is the username. The part of the URL up to username is the album URL. If there are additional parts between the username and the filename it means user has sub albums. From our example the album URL is http://s170.photobucket.com/albums/u249/volcomg1rl9/. Without the need of search, you can type this to the adress box and go directly to the album. Nav.Net presents the images better, so you might prefer to do a user search.

Topic 3: Fuskering Photobucket Images

In this topic I’ll describe Fuskering with Nav.Net. For example you found an image URL like http://w38.photobucket.com/albums/e145/candie1989/IMG_0438.jpg. Many photobucketers uses digital cameras and most cameras labels image files with numbers like IMG_0438 or DSCN1234 or Picture100. So there might be more images with higher numbers for that account. Fuskering means testing the filenumbers from a source image URL. Doing this with Nav.Net is easy. Just go to the “Browser” page, paste the URL to the Adress box and press enter. Nav.Net will download and show the image file. Browser window contains a toolbar located at the bottom of the page like this.

The last three buttons at the toolbar can be used to do a quick Fusker. The first green arrow will create a Fusker for previous 100 images, The next arrow will create a Fusker for Next 100 images. The folder button can be used to check for the album if it is open or not.

Now click the Next 100 images button (Second green arrow). The GDU Box in the middle will display an autogenerated GDU for the image file and Nav.Net will start to download the available image files. From our example the GDU should be

<URL http://w38.photobucket.com/albums/e145/candie1989/IMG_{0}.jpg><CO [0438.0538]>.

The <CO [0438.0538]> part is the start and the end number of the gallery. You may directly edit these numbers or click to the arrows more to go further or back. Now change CO part with <CO [0300.0500]> (do not change the number digit format) and press enter. Nav.Net will try to download 200 images numbered 300 to 500. Nav.Net stores the number range if you click Next or Previous buttons. Now click the second green arrow again. The CO part automatically changed to <CO [0500.0700]> and the gallery generated for GDU displayed in a new tab page.

You can try this feature for any image URL with numbered filenames.

Topic 4: Searching for Fuskerable Images

Some Nav.Net feaures can be used together to do a funny thing. You may search for Fuskerable images. I’ll show you how to do this. Now click the “Search” button on the top bar and switch to the “Search View”. Select “Image Search” from Search Categories. Type “site:photobucket.com boobs DSCF” keywords to Search For box and click [>] button (or press enter). Nav.Net will bring results from image search engines. You may change the “boobs” part with another keyword or “DSCF” part with another filename format. My example brought these results. Remember your results may be different from my example because everyday users add tons of new photos to photobucket. Remember to click [>] button multiple times to get more results if available.

Nav.Net will check for more images but it will only use a simple search to bring the results faster. So most of the time you’ll see “1 image” label under the thumbnail. Not important we’ll fusker for more. If you doubleclick an image Nav.Net will automatically download it in the browser window. I’ve clicked the an image at the last row. Now time to start a fusker. I’ve clicked the Previous 100 images button as I described in the previous topic. This is what I got.

Topic 5: Search over Fusker sites for PB images

You may find good photobucket images from fusker sites. Switch to the Search view and select “Fusker Search” from categories group. You have two options. Just type “Photobucket” to Search For box and click [>] button. Nav.Net will search for fuskers for PB images. Click [>] button more to get more results. Your second option is directly typing the Photobucket user name to the search box. If you have chance somebody fuskered this users account before. If the username is too generic Nav.Net may bring unreleated results.

Topic 6: Gallery Generation from Filename Lists.

You’ve found the filename list of a private photobucket account. Displaying them one by one is not easy. Nav.Net’s Page Creator feature is very useful to create galleries from file lists.

Type the album URL to the adress box and paste the filename list to the Files box. The filenames should be listed line by line. If you want to generate a thumbnailed gallery type th_ to Thumbs box. When you are ready click the Generate! button. Nav.Net will display all images at once. You can use all thumbnailed gallery navigation features mentioned at Nav.Net Basics chapter.

You can use Create List From Browser button for creating a list of file URL’s from open browser pages. When we do multiple fuskers to an album, multiple browser tabs opens and parts of the albums seperated. Use this feature for merging album parts into one page or getting the URL list of fuskered files.

There is also a useful addition in Nav.Net to search for common filenames. Click here to read Fusker Generator chapter.
