Supported File Types for Photos

Photobucket supports most commonly-used image and video files. If you're having trouble uploading a photo, making sure we support the file type is a great first step.

Supported file types

  • Images – jpg, jpeg, png, bmp

.bmp files are converted into .png files. 


We do not currently support tif, tiff, raw and swf file types. 

Your file type must have the correct file extension and the internal file type must be one of the supported file types or your upload will fail. If you have a media file with an extension that is not on the supported list, use a graphic/image or video editor and try to convert it into a supported file type, then save it as the new file type, with the appropriate extension.

Image size limits

There are no size limits in regards to uploading images.


In an effort to streamline our focus on the best photo experience, we have discontinued support for video uploads. Please note that you can still view your videos in your account even though this feature is no longer available.
