    the bandwidth thing is the total transfer off the site...

    so all your photos are 109Mb, theres been 3.1Gb of transfer so thats the same as saying each and every photo has been display as max resolution 28 times.

    I dont know about "stealing" but its possible for others to display the pictures directly, all the need to do is get the URl and stick it in a forum post like this one..

        yeah, if they use the url for a pic stored in your photobucket, then everytime someone looks at that pic, it'll come an load it from your photobucket account, meaning the more people view it, the higher your bandwidth will be, i believe.

            direct image theft can be a bit annoying for somepeople.

            its not so bad on a flikr/photobucket account

            but if you were hosting your files on your own site, then your hosts could charge you for the extra bandwidth.

            its known as inline linking, or hotlinking, and is pretty frowned upon by alot of people
