I uploaded some of my Datsyuk PC to imgur. It works well I think.
Here's how it looks: http://datsyuk13.imgur.com/

As far as I can see, the "mass upload" at myhobbycards.com is five at a time................ and now that I've registered it keeps giving me a syntax error when I try to go to my home page, which could be my work computer or it could be a website issue or it could just be that I'm cursed. Mannnnn remember when this all used to be FUN?

Pesonaly I do use the inventory but I am bias since I am the one coding it. While you can't upload anything but cards, I do want to say we do enter all cards not just liscenced cards. ITG is not licenced and so as many other pre NHL set in hockey. You can ask under the inventory feedback forum in the sub forum per sports if cards does not exist.
Now what photobucket does we do it for the most part except for mass upload.
Now I hate people who upload image with no text description andmore so when they upload 1 image with 8 cards on them. I usually pass these bucket and skip on trading, more so if there is a lot of these image. The new interface make it even more impossible to see if they are habs or not.
Now if you do scan card by cards, the inventory is just a question of getting use to use it and it can be fast. I can make demo on how I work when I enter cards and you will see it not that hard. More so when you enter then for the first time. What I do is to scan around 40-80 cards max and save then into one folder and then take the card and if they are from one set I just open that set page and right click on each card to add using the card number in the set page. This open a page for each cards and then I go in and select the image, click enter and then move on to the next card to choose the image while the other tab upload the image. I can enter a lot of cards fast enough.
Also it does have categorie and it does have a image only view, here my categories:
You can see RC, auto, memorabilia, serial and other categories.
Also you have a image only view with a zoom to view bigger or smaller
zoom level 1:
zoom level 2:
zoom level 3:
Just in my inventory while I do have over 37,000 cards, I do have over 6,250 images of both PC and traders.
But the bext is that you know wich card it is and does not have to reseach it each time when you look at a inventory. When in image only mode, moving the mouse over let you see the card description. There is a advance search that make it easy to search a player or a team that you collect. In less the a few second I can copy and paste all the link to my hockey trader link per team like here:
Anaheim Ducks - Atlanta Thrashers - Boston Bruins - Buffalo Sabres - Calgary Flames
Carolina Hurricanes - Chicago Blackhawks - Colorado Avalanche - Columbus Blue Jackets - Dallas Stars
Detroit Red Wings - Edmonton Oilers - Florida Panthers - Los Angeles Kings - Minnesota Wild
Montreal Canadiens - Nashville Predators - New Jersey Devils - New York Islanders - New York Rangers
Ottawa Senators - Philadelphia Flyers - Phoenix Coyotes - Pittsburgh Penguins - San Jose Sharks
St. Louis Blues - Tampa Bay Lightning - Toronto Maple Leafs - Vancouver Canucks - Washington Capitals
Then your fellow team collector has it easy to find your good cards per team. I collect habs and would wish all other have it that easy for me to find possible trader. I spent way to much time in bucket just to find what they have when they have a big bucket. The good thing about categories is that once you understand how it work, you create the categories and forget about them. As for the team When you upload image there is a tool to let you select the team if the cards in our database does not have the team selected already. For instance all Hbas cards I set when I upload images are set for all other users as well since it's set in the master card database. With some newer release we do get the team but not all. This is why we let you set at least the cards you upload a image of.
Many see it as not fast and complicated but when they get used to using it, most will change idea. The down side is that if you do trade on other site, it might be a issue since trading site tend to not allow link to other trading site. But I only trade here and would never want to use anything else.

Geeeez, THAT'S a reply eh? :D
Ok, when I said "unlicensed" I think I actually meant customs, proof, sheet-cuts, oddball type items, the un-listed stuff, like my 1972 Dryden family Christmas card...........
As far as the rest goes, you've pointed out a bunch of features that I was unaware of, gonna have to concentrate and learn things I guess, Luc!
P.S. Your Crosby / Ovechkin Ultimate Dual Patch card is sweeeeeeeeeet.

In all case we have a inventory feedback forum and you can ask any question there. I have also a demo sotware and in 10 minutes I can make a demo/video with image and voice to show you how easy it can be.
Here one demo I made:
But for any question while you are looking at it just post them in the INV feedback forum and will gladly guide you in your test.

I opted out of the beta when they first offered it, and sent them feedback telling them they've successfully managed to either remove every useful function, or make it so what used to take 2 mouse clicks now takes 17.
When they push this beta through to being the standard, I'm going to be VERY hard pressed to even bother using it anymore. I'm sure there's someplace out there where the photos can be hosted, and if not I'll be surprised to find out that some other disenfranchised PB user doesn't set up a new site on their own.Hidden Content
