Photobucket image hosting changes - bad news

Postby Zoltan » Thu Aug 10, 2017 8:18 am

If you host your pictures on Photobucket like I do then you will be aware of the changes they have brought in on 3rd party linking- the sort of thing that we use on the forum to get pictures on here.
Basically from now on it'll cost you $400 a year to use Photobucket to host your pictures and display them online via a link
As if enough of our forum posts didn't get totally ruined by the two people that asked for their posts to be removed before, now this.

$400 a year is too much for most people so be prepared to see most of the photo content disappear if it is hosted by Photobucket. I won't be paying them another cent anyway.

Wow. Thats a big fee

I think it will kill them as most Blog, Web sites and Forum users use photo bucket.

Can you imagine how many blogs and sites will fall apart. They obviously believe that everyone will be held to ransom and pay up .

I doubt it , most will jump to another user like google that has free unlimited storage for photos at the moment

If they had charged about $20 then I think most would have paid for the convenience
