Photobucket

Post  jasonf on July 5th 2017, 8:53 am

Has anyone noticed that Photobucket has gone mad with the ads? It is almost impossible to use anymore. The other day I read they have a new "fee" structure and you need have to pay if you want any of your links to work. If you look at Dougs post in the sbf hemi thread below you will see what they do now.

Yep, time to start looking for another site to host photos. I've only used 19% of the 11.9 gb's that is advertised as free, but now they want to charge me for the links. The site is crazy with Ads and it certainly doesn't work as good as it use too.

It's probably a bandwidth usage over/under thing that's their deciding factor if they block the pics or not. Just did a quick search and my PB pics still seem to show up here (so far anyway). But then I don't post as many pics as others do so my bandwidth usage is probably a lot lower.

I guess a temporary/permanent workaround is to just post PB pic links without embedding them, (if you didn't want the hassle of moving the pics to a new host).

It's a shame that photo bucket has done this. We've lost a lot of great pictures from a lot of people, and one that we may never get back is the series of pics that Qkiss put up on the beautiful work he is doing on the '64 Fairlane, his was almost a tutorial on metal work. Evil or Very Mad

I notice that all of the Vendors at the top of this sites Home Page have the same message. The links still work to their website, but photos are gone.

Don't bow to these blackmailers ... other sites don't use photobucket so, there must be another way.
Right now, if photos need to be sent, send them through private emails.

Never mine. I just tried to upload one and got this message. "You cannot upload any photos to the gallery because the storage limit has been reached." Apparently all of that space is used up.

Not sure why pb took a huge jump from free to 400 bucks.

There is another way to post pics tho.
If you have photos on other sites you can right click on the pic and select "copy image address"

Then when you want to post the image on a forum do this:




This is my pic from my fb account using the link as posted above ^^

Every one of my photobucket links quite working so I am now using fb to store pics until I find another free site.
Good thing I downloaded all my photobucket pics earlier this year

I could understand charging to keep any future photos but, to hold all the older photos hostage is just wrong.
