Photobucket Public API Released, Competes with Flickr

Following the footsteps of Flickr, MySpace's photo and video-sharing website Photobucket have announced the release of its API to web developers. This latest move by the company will allow developers around the world to build new applications based on Photobucket’s popular digital media sharing technology.

"The release of the Photobucket API enables developers to give users access to their photos and videos from places beyond, including other Web sites, Web applications, desktop applications
, browser plug-ins, mobile phones, home-entertainment systems, digital photo frames and cameras," says their blog.

Photobucket have partnered Adobe, AOL, FotoFlexer, Intercasting, RockYou, Slide and Snapvine to create wide range of applications and plans to launch at Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco later this week.

Photobucket, founded in 2003 by Alex Welch and Darren Crysta, was acquired by Fox Interactive Media, a News Corporation subsidiary, in May 2007 for $300 million.
