Photobucket Breaks Image Links Across the Internet

Post by pistolero » Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:09 pm

Gentlemen,

I believe that as per the below article, photo bucket will no longer be free:

I understand that a lot of us, have posted our pictures on PB and have attached the links, here. It could be that over a period of time, we might start losing those images.

Please do look at alternatives. Flikr is free...till they exploit it for cash :evil: :twisted:

Regards,
-P

The problem has started to manifest, may read this thread viewtopic.php?f=20&t=23486&p=249586#p249586

Yes Flickr is free till now. Requesting readers to list other sites too that may not suddenly change their policy. Do Google and Microsoft also allow linking pictures to third party websites?

$399 per year, are they crazy? This is OUTRAGEOUS. I shall be using Imgur from now own. I know this thread's pretty old, but I just wanted to let everyone know that the alternatives are much better, and... well, free.
