Good thing I have postimage files. Hoping the other image web hosting sites won't follow.


http://photobucket.com/terms

Quote:
Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.
Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.
Ad-free Account : The Ad-free Account offers Members the ability to use the Site without seeing any third party banner advertisements when logged into your Ad-free Account (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts and you will continue to see Photobucket offers and announcements). This account level is available for $2.49 / month, payable by the Member on a monthly recurring basis.
Plus Account : The Plus Account offers several paid options that may give the Paying Member more storage, bandwidth, 3rd party image hosting, image linking and/or other services as outlined below. Once and during such period of time in which you subscribe to and pay for a Plus Account, we will consider you a "Paying Member." Please note that all Plus Account subscriptions are billed annually at the commencement of the service. Photobucket may also offer a monthly billing option for its Plus Accounts (see terms and restrictions, below).
Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:
o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.

Photobucket has honestly been a joke for years at this point, this is just the final nail in the coffin.

I use Cubeupload, personally or Abload.de for images bigger than 5 megs.

Say what?! In no way is this happening! Photobucket has really gone to the dogs now. I also don't like their low-resolution images, they're like kumquats! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Like ImageShack, I haven't used nor even visited it for a pretty long time now. lol It often emails me to sell their various goods & services, tho, but I've never bought anything from them.

Evil, evil Photobucket. The masks are falling and now we know all they want is our money.

Fortunately, there are altruistic companies like Postimage and Tinypics who don't care about those filthy coins and who just want to make this world a better place, with magic unicorns everywhere and free cotton candy for everyone. :cthulhu:

Is this a bad time to mention that Tinypic isn't good either?

Because it's not, they reuse image urls so an image that you uploaded that may have been something innocent like a picture of a cat might be replaced by something different, including porn. (Seriously, it's happened on some sites I use)

They don't even offer incentives like referral bonuses like those Bitcoin wallet exchangers. P-:

Evil indeed. :evillaugh:

This is bad, real bad! PB used to be a great image hosting site, now it's all about them wanting to make more money. Hopefully, they wouldn't take our uploaded images for granted and just let us download it all or take it off their site with no hassle. :(

Testing out Imgur just so I have other options in case these image sites follow Photobucket's ridiculous membership fees.

Well, at least Imgur works. I may have to switch from Photobucket soon. :) Nice photo, by the way. :D

Good grief. At those prices you'd be better off going back to the olden days answer and ordering web hosting to keep your images on. Plus it comes with the advantage of storing nearly any file.

For a long time now & long before those recent policies of PB, I no longer post actual images often here (I usually simply put the pic's url link here lol ), but when I do, I just attach them here, which I didn't do back then. lol

I think the worst thing about Photobuckets pricing is that it's $400 a year for 500 gigs of storage.

I know it's not 100% comparable (since Photobucket is just images), but the fact that both Google Drive and Dropbox give you a terabyte of storage for $100 a year just makes Photobucket look like a giant joke.

Your signature has been cursed by the Photobucket Fairies. :zoid: :kero: :cthulhu:

Well I can suggest tinypic they let you store pictures, and link pictures. (I use them for my sim pics) Still, I wonder why photobuck did this ? I mean 500 dollars a year is just verry pricy .

To host pics on a website charging 500 is just robbery, might as well say they are holding your pics hostage till you pay a random

Of course I won't pay it, & I don't think anyone should (just as no one should pay the ransom to unlock their computers), which'd only encourage such business malpractices.

Maybe you could just keep your present state & do nothing, as the color of your current sig looks pretty matching w/ your current avatar. :lol:

funny you should mention that, i had used tinypic for the URL for my banner on here and suddenly it was some other image, thankfully it wasn't porn in this case but still... so i logged into my photobucket to fix the banner. so now that's bad too...

I'm enjoying using Imgur.

Though it was difficult to navigate at first.
