i have heard some photo software lets you import directly from a photobucket album.
if you click to the 'main page' of an album where it shows all thumbnails. hidden as blue text is 'Album Options', click there and a 'Download this album' option should be available. Should .zip them and send you one big file with all of them.
--- the above only works for me logged in to my account. guess visitors can't 'mass download'
if its easier we can just email them across though, probably is.
(uploading to photobucket, the safest batch size appears to be 20 at a time... frustrating to say the least. even facebook does better.)
