Old Panagbenga 2009 Photobucket Photo Slideshow



With the recently concluded Panagbenga 2012 Grand Float Parade which I only got to watch through GMA Network’s live coverage, the idea of embedding my old collection of photos came to mind. These are old Old Panagbenga 2009 images I’ve captured after the float parade.

At that time, I didn’t join the crowd since I was pregnant and was due to give birth in weeks. We didn’t watch the actual fluvial parade and we didn’t see them on display at the Melvin Jones football grounds (near Burnham Park) in the morning. We dropped in the afternoon when almost all have fled the area. I took advantage of the emptiness of the place to take photos.

About a week or so after, events leading to the contents of the blog entry happened - Notes on Childbirth Pain. Walking along Session Road for the tiangge early evening of 3/11/2009 had lead to labor the whole day of 3/12 and finally to childbirth 3/13 of the same year. For the same reasons, Baguio and Panagbenga will always be monumental for me.

Photobucket Photo Slideshow

Now as always, I’d like to make sure there’s something I get to share with this post. So in relation to the thumbnail generator of Photobucket, it’s fairly easy to create one in case you’re interested. Obviously, you need to have an account first. It’s easier to register if you have Facebook because you can simply connect the accounts. Don’t worry, you can allow access to reputable sites like Photobucket as they won’t spam your wall nor hack your profile.

Upload Photos to Photobucket

After registration, you can upload the images. There’s a green upload button with an arrow up located on top, in the middle section. Just click on it and follow the instructions. You can upload directly from your computer or when you click the ‘more’ tab, through other sources like your mobile phone, email, and other places online.

Should you choose to upload from your computer, you can choose multiple files by holding down the Ctrl button and clicking all files you’d like to upload. Upon uploading, you can edit the images by pointing the cursor onto a photo followed by the edit option.

How to create a Photobucket Photo Slideshow for your blog

When the images are ready; look for the Album Options tab on the right side below the menu navigation, along the same line as the album title. Click on the arrow down and look for the share this album option. Next, choose the tab for Get link code and highlight the code under Embed album slideshow option. You can then directly paste the code to your blog.

Unlike Facebook, the Photobucket Photo Slideshow is more appealing. The images are displayed one by one automatically without you scrolling down an endless list of images. You can also share the URL of the album by simply copying the link under the Share a link to the album field (still under Get link code tab) and paste it onto your Facebook wall, Twitter page, or any other social network site. You can automatically share it as well via the Share on option. Just choose where to share it to. Options as of the moment are Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and Messenger. Just make sure that the album is not set to private. It’s on public by default anyway unless otherwise specified.

Going back to the Panagbenga 2009 photos, they are all I can reminisce about as I didn’t join the festivities this year. Although I’m not a fan of crowded areas, I’m sure everyone who watched and celebrated with Baguio city were thrilled.
