PhotoBucket now charges $399 for third-party hosted images

For anyone that has used Photo bucket to share their photos on here, they will most likely now have a broken link. They are asking for $399/yr to enable the links again.



As of a few days ago Photobucket has begun blocking 3rd party image hosting. This means that every image linked from photobucket in the last 14+ years will be a dead link. Every DIY, build thread, for sale post, etc.



Below is all you will see if someone has linked a pic from PB to a forum.



I think Photo Bucket is 'Dogging the Boys'!

My pictures are still showing... For now. The effect should be immediate. Or is this only affecting newly created accounts? Either way I dont care. There are plenty of other free hosting sites to choose from.

My account is about 7yrs old.

I realize there are other free hosting sites, but that doesn't help all the previous threads that now won't make sense due to the broken links to photos.

If you right click on the picture it will actually open in photobucket (right click - open in new tab).

My account hasn't changed yet, but it's only a matter of time. Seems it's part of their upgrades terms.

They'll be migrating everyone over. Not many people are happy. I don't think it will work..

For $400 a year you'd be better off buying your own domain and web server and hosting whatever you like there... most people will know this.

In saying that also, I have noticed they've gone waaaay over the top with the ads lately. I had been putting up with it as part of the free service.. they can get rooted if I'm going to pay what they're asking.

I got locked out of our main photo bucket account a year or two back. No way to log in, no way to recover the log in... Photos were still showing last time I looked, but seriously annoying.

I think it's being described as Corporate Suicide in the press. There are lots of very very unhappy users. I'm glad I only rarely used it for sharing the odd photo and it's not my primary store for backups whatever.

Transient inept idiots who couldn't organise a root in a brothel:
They'll go the way of Yahoo, MySpace, Kodak & Britannica etc.

Their CEO's are no-doubt about cashing-in while the going's good:
I'll be about finding a program to migrate my pics' somewhere else.
