So all my pics now have "please upgrade to 500 plus for 3rd party image sharing" which is $39 a month (US $ probably) .. Looks like I won't be posting pics ever again...

Cheers, Scott.

Photobucket has become worthless in recent times. I've pretty much abandoned my account. Now they want you to pay for it. Maybe $39/year, but NOT $39/month - no way!

Thanks mate, I'll have a look into that. As it stands though all my previous posts with pics now have that stupid upgrade icon on them, and I have 700 odd pics on photobucket that I can now no longer transfer to anything unless I pay for them. Photobuckets basically blackmailing their users, if you want your pics back you need to pay.  mad

Cheers, Scott.

I stopped adding photos to Photobucket a couple years ago because they got stupid with their new interface.

Now they want me to pay for a free hosting site?  Um, no.  They can take their offer, fold it until it's all sharp corners, and shove it where the sun don't shine.

Anything I really want to link I will simply upload to Imgur instead.   Only reason I'm not deleting my account immediately is because they might figure out what a bad idea this is and change their mind.

Something like this happened with "WebShots"and I switched to photo bucket. I hope they don't cut their own throats here.
    Plus I've got a load of pix on the forum that were posted thru them. Good grief what a mess this digital age is.

My account still works.  When I opened it up it said "upgrade to ad-free for $10/month". Maybe you need to move to the US to get free photo hosting.

When I opened mine, it gave me a lot of trouble navigating and making a link to my pics.
   I just put some oversized pics up for unclrob, by my old way of resizing the photo in PAINT. And then posting them.

Seems to be the way the whole worlds going these days Danny. Slower, less efficient and more expensive.  wacko
