Photobucket API for Developers

Posted on 4.22.2008

Photobucket has released an API that allows external third-party developers to create applications that include content and functions from the photo- and video-sharing Web site. The popular service has had an API (application programmer interface) but it was previously only available to a hand-selected group of developers. This should nicely extend Photobucket's relevance.

Most of the photos and clips hosted by Photobucket are displayed in other sites, like MySpace (which is a sister company of Photobucket owned by News Corp.) and Facebook, and such will probably be the case with the applications built using its API. The API will open up about 50 Photobucket functions, including video uploading, obtaining metadata about an image, editing photos, creating and accessing albums, and searching for content.
