No more free photos from Photobucket


I got an email from Photobucket this morning informing me there would be no more 3rd-party photo sharing from my free acct. In order to enable it, they want $40/month!

I only had 44 pics stored there and most of them were shared here.

So, just a heads up that photos on this site that used to be shared from photobucket are now replaced with an ad for photobucket.

Anybody have recommendations for another free hosting site?

This site makes it difficult to go back and find old posts to even replace the links. :-(

Note that my other Photobucket site, "RogersPast," which is the link for the John Cermenaro photos, the Photobucket 3rd part sharing limitation has not been applied. The John C photos still appear on the ROF website.

Re: No more free photos from Photobucket


Good Grief! after reading about photobucket here I went and logged into my account. It took almost 10 minutes just to get through all the ads. Too bad, looks like the hosts of the site are more interested in making money than providing a usable service. I hope I can recover all my pictures since I've added them from a number of different computers.

The only way to fix those images is to cough up $400.

Some users, whose livelihoods depend on the fact that their sites aren’t broken, had no choice but to do so.

Others kept all their files on Photobucket, without a physical copy on their hard drives. Which meant the only way to avoid losing years and years of memories was to download every picture (of which there might be thousands) one by one or, you guessed
