PSA Photobucket users

If you're a Photobucket user like myself, hosting pictures on the site and then linking them to sites like this one, they have implemented a new policy of charging for third party linkage.

You have probably noticed throughout the site that images are no longer showing, and it's due to this change in their business structure that they are now charging for it. Use Imgur instead if you need it.

Thanks for the heads up. I only stuck with PB out of pure laziness. Now I have no excuse and it's time to jump ship.

Thank you for the information. I was wondering what was going on. I just removed all of my pics from PB and opened an Imgur account. I'm in the process of moving and will just take some new pics of my collection once I get it all set up again.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

I have a paid account and apparently I'm grandfathered in for a few months, but I've already moved all my photos off (via ftp). Going to close it down soon.
