Photobucket Holding Users to Ransom $400

(1/2) > >>

Pete126:
Just read the new terms and conditions for using Photobucket, If you want to post your photos to forums and websites etc you have to pay $400 a year to embed >:(  >:(  >:( So if you have a free or paid - plus account download your albums and photos you want to keep before they lock you out,  Look like there's going allot of blank photos on the forum

ChrisRLewis:
That's daylight robbery :o
I use postimage https://tinyurl.com/ya9yrs9b it's free.

Xylaquin:
I never used photobucket anyway since it requires registration.

Why don't we just increase the photo size limits of this forum? (and prevent hotlinking so other sites can't leach our bandwidth)

Gadge:
Damm! I only just seen this!  :o so when does this take effect? I've been using them for years. The majority of all my threads are full of photos via photobucket and a lot of them I've since erased from my photo library. It would take me ages to re-insert them from someone eles  :(

Who do others use?

Don't panic, Gadge. As I understand it, it is only the third-party linking that is being disabled. Photos you have stored on their servers will still be there, and you personally will still be able to access them. What will *not* be possible without paying their subscription is for others such as me as an individual or this site as a 'corporate' third party to 'look into' your library.

To get your pix back 'all' you need to do is download your library back to your personal hard drive. As Pete126 said, there will be a lot of blank spaces on the Forum (there already are on other sites I use) but if anyone really wants to see one of your old pictures, and you really feel inclined to dig it out for them and post on here, technically you can still do it, and at no financial cost.
