WE NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING
PHOTOBUCKET FOR 3RD PARTY HOSTING*


TO RESTORE YOUR 3RD PARTY HOSTED IMAGES,
PLEASE UPGRADE TO A PLUS 500 PLAN.


Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.​
[HR][/HR]*What is 3rd Party Hosting?

Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website. For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, a blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.​
Why Photobucket?

The only option that "allows third party hosting" will cost you $400 per year.

Unfortunately true.
PB is going through all our accounts and killing the links.
They will get to everyone eventually.
I had the 5 GB account for $60 a year but I am not going to pay extortion.
It turns out Smugmug is cheaper than my account at PB.
I have already started moving photos...

That will be a very bad this sense 99.9% of the photos I post come from my photobucket (free)account

Exactly.
Millions of pictures will be lost and thousands of threads will be useless unless each of us goes through every thread on every forum we have ever posted a picture in and replace the PB link with a new one.
Impossible?

Yes

I guess that is what PB was counting on, that we howl and rant but in the end we would pay the extortion ransom.
So many tutorial threads I have done on various threads that are going to be useless without the pictures.

I won't lose any pictures since I have them stored on 2 computers, but every picture I have posted was on PB.

Guess I may have to update the photo helper thread I started long ago. I still have a photobucket account but haven't used it for several years as a host. I used google photo's now, still free.

I'd update the "how to" post a photo thread in the forum but there are too many ways nowadays to do it. Some folks still have troubles posting photo's or have no patience to do so but the bottom line is the helper thread I had isn't really applicable anymore. I still help when asked or if I see it in a thread.

Will now see if posting this photobucket photo will generate a "they hate me and want me to pay" email haha!

Here's a tutorial I did to help people out who wished to post images from Flickr, which is what I use:


I still have not found a way to do that from Google Photo on my iPad, and would like that option.

This is affecting everyone, on all of my forums. You can always use a different host....Google Drive, Dropbox, etc. You can also upload your pics to the forum directly; which is probably the best way to go if you want your stuff to be saved should any other hosts pull the same stunt Photobucket just did. >:-(

I got the "Some features on your account will be disabled" email this morning. I've only used 10% of my available storage so that wasn't the issue. Looks like they are just making it a pay to use the site. Couple years ago I downloaded all the photo albums I wanted and uploaded them to Google Photos so nothing lost if they do shut off my Photobucket account. Like jbfla's carb photo's, I would have to repost affected pictures should that happen with the Google account photo's.

Well there it is. GONE but I didn't get any email??
Yep, mine are gone too. I just looked at my test thread this a.m. and all my Photobucket pictures have the same logo.

Fortunately, my actual photos are not lost as I have them on google photos and a backup drive at home. You know, in case Google Photos wants to charge for use in the future as well.

You should still be able to log in to your PB account.

Even after my photos were blocked, the photos were still in my account.

i just could not link to them.

i spent days downloading the most important photos to transfer and repost, but is taking a lot longer than I thought.

....unfortunately, there won't be enough time to repost the dozens of ride reports from the last 10 years.

Ha, so I had just updated the how to thread to include this very thing. I'm in the process of adding some photos to the instructions to help visually. Until I get that done, here is the short written version. This is from a PC Computer.

I'm still working on how to post Google Photos from other devices, like my iPhone. I don't have a Mac, Apple, Peach, iPads, etc. so those folks have to let me know and I'll include it in the How to.

Yesterday someone posted how post from Flickr but I haven't found that post yet and will include it in the how too.



Google Photos

1. Click on a selected photo from your album(s)

2. Right Click and select Copy image of your selected photo

3. Return to the forum post you have created and right click and paste the photo into this post.

4. As always, click the Save Button

Oh there still in my photobucket account. I'm also downloading some as well. Just going to be more work now to post photos. All my camera pics are also auto uploaded into my photobucket account as well.
