Photo hosting sites - Photobucket is no longer nice


Recommended Posts

Well... this came in my inbox yesterday:

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

PLEASE UPGRADE TO A PLUS 500 PLAN.

Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.

*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.

This means pretty much all images I posted on various threads (and more - since I imagine I am not the only Photobucket user receiving this type of notice) will go very soon. My apologies to anyone trying to make sense of threads that relied on images.

I used to be a Photobucket fan - but this type of attitude means that as soon as the photos are offline I will cancel my account.

In general I much prefer you (and everyone else) upload images directly into this site. 

Notwithstanding any hiccups from the recent upgrade, we can handle images, and are happy to do so, to avoid exactly this issue.
