Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

I have found postimage.org, free image hosting, very simple to use, free and you can use a selection of URL's to post to forums and websites including thumbnails.

Postimage is an option. However, we always suggest to post your images using the attachment manager to ensure that what you post here, stays here. Hopefully the other image hosting sites wont get on board with PB's decision and take that route as well.

There is an extension to Chrome that lets you see the blocked Photobucket images, but it slows the browser to a ridiculous crawl.

Doesn't this site still have a storage limit per user?

Also, using jpg compression with paint.net (<---program, not website) or other editing program will save storage is you have a limit.

Google photos, no limit
Imgur, no limit
Flickr, no limit with Flickr you can upload full size, then choose the display size from the share menu.
Postimage had no limit last time I checked, but not sure if it is still the same.
The photobucket extension has to do a little work to get the photos and is slower loading them, BUT you can still see them without having the admin edit all your links.
Edit: IF you add the extension, you can leave it disabled until you want to see someones blocked PB links.
