Just don't use them in the first place.

Imo PB is bad news, old ride reports that i like to go back to now and then [the epic ones anyhow] are now totally fkd thanks to free PB accounts ditching the older stock.

Seeing as these days no one puts up much of that stuff [epic ride reports] it makes the older ones more important imo, but now they are full of placeholers where the pics used to be.

How hard is it to upload direct from your comp, are you using PB as an online pic storage facility? If so then you obviously have your special pics at home as you wouldn't be silly enough to transmit them over the net.

shit.. i couldnt delete it.. i have thousands of pics on there and often flick through them...

yes i do have original copies of them all, but all the best pics made it to phobuk and they are quicker to flick through.

if theres another or better one, ill check it out, but im just used to using pb ....cause..something... think 2006-07 first used it, havent needed to change, until now that limit has run out..

I only use it to post pics on to forums. Facebook can do the same thing. I keep all my pics/vids on external hard drives.

What happen to the Photobucket app. I bought another iPad and It's very hard to use on an iPad with no app, near impossible.

Cant you just use picasa? Its googles version of PB and with each account you get 15gb, super easy to link multiple accounts too.

Resize all my photos before posting to photobucket.

Looks like I'll die of old age before I have to pay.
