    Fuckin' bullshit!! I've been procrastinating about getting PhotoBucket ever since Comcast shut off their personal website feature a year or so ago (and kept billing me the same every month). Now PB wants $400/year! Totally not worth it for someone like me who only needs hosting every now-and-then to sell something. It'd be cheaper to get your own domain and run it from your house.

    Yeah such BS and people are pissed....my opinion is this may be the end of PB as who can afford $400 a year for this. Tons of Amazon and Ebay sellers now have pictures that do not work.

    I did sign the petition; not sure it will help: https://www.change.org/p/photobucket...ird-party-rule




    On the good note my image is still there, but I received the email yesterday from PB, so maybe it is just a matter of time before they apply it.

    True...and basically how I feel about them now PB has just went downhill in the last few years; started out they slammed so many ads into their pages it loaded so slowly. Then they started to put adds in the actual image sections, every time I open PB I got a ad to upgrade my account, then if you tried to use a "Adblock" you could not use the site. I'm all for ads and helping out the company, but do we have to slam like 6+ adds on every page and go overboard!

    Then seriously $400 dollars to link pics now! I could see like $5 bucks a month or something, but that is crazy for the common PB user. $33 bucks a month! Hell I get spotify for $9.99 and use that way more!

    Your Photobucket account is not going away, only the ability to hotlink the photos to another website. Everything will still be there when you go to photobucket.com.

    Re: Test Photobucket 3rd Party Linking

    Yes I am. All you are losing is the ability to embed the photos on a third party website such as Craigslist. Ransom was bad word choice by the reporter.

    Key info:

    4. Are my pictures still safe?

    Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket
    Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on
    3rd party sites.

    5. Can I download my Photos?

    Absolutely, at any time. It is an easy four step process:

    Step 1. Login to your Photobucket Account

    Step 2. Navigate to your library page

    Step 3. View a photo and click the download button

    Step 4. The picture will be saved to your computer

    See this is how I understood it all. I tried to link an image a week or so ago on here and got the third party notification. Which is fine, I was using Photobucket for free to hotlink. So I don't care that they took it away. Their website has really sucked that last few years. Every time I go there, I have to close other windows I have open, due to the fact that their website is so freaking slow, anything else open will screw it up. Also their uploads page would take forever to load. Photobucket is a joke and I don't care if they keep my pics. They are all just used for BS anyways...

Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and of service to your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

    Sold my soul to Google years ago. Android phone, uploads to google photos automatically. Been using it for years, but I know it's only a matter of time before they do the same.

    One the upside, 100G worth of online storage is 20 bucks a year.


    Do not put off living the life you dream of. Next year may never come. If we are always waiting for something to change...
    Retirement, the kids to leave home, the weather or the economy, that's not living. That's waiting!
    Waiting will only leaves us with unrealized dreams and empty wishes.
