Heads-up to Photobucket users

Photobucket is now migrating into subscription model....For those (like me) using this platform to share our projects, think of another platform to migrate to......

Photos will be safe and can be downloaded to our PCs anytime (for now), but wont be displayed on 3rd party websites (i.e This forum) unless one buys the hosting plan.

I got hit by the same problem, as that was the only reason I used it. I'm not paying $40 (US) a month so I can use the feature, will have to find something else, any suggestions or can I do it another way?

i personally use dropbox for my photos. I copy a public link to the image and paste it as the path to the image and it works for me.

Like this image of my old truck (a 79 K5 blazer with an 81 cab and a home made box.... sadly it died in 2002. crank bearings started to go)



HMM... on second thought. it's not working today. could be my internet though. my work's internet goes strange sometimes.

OK, i have it working now

so, what you have to do is get a share link on dropbox, copy the link into notepad or something like that

change the www.dropbox.com in the link to dl.dropboxusercontent.com and remove the ?dl=0 from the back and it will link.

i now have to go into all my old posts on a few forums and update dropbox links

I was wondering why I couldn't see some images people have been posting. I thought the problem was on my end. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the heads up.

The worst part is that people have been using Photobucket in forums for years, and now all those images will be inaccessible. I don't know about the rest of you, but I've often found solutions to problems in old forum posts as far back as the 90s. Sometimes the linked images are dead for whatever reason, but Photobucket images were usually still there. Now those will all be gone.

I guess I may as well delete my Photobucket account too, since that's the only thing I used it for.

We use photobucket for our business. Out of the blue our photos were taken off our 3rd party site. No warning whatsoever. Now if I pay $400 a year they will put them back up. I don't think so! That's extortion. We will not be using photobucket ever again.

NP. Yep, it sucks.....imagine having to go forum by forum, changing all the links from Photobucket to whatever new tool we decide to use...I'm thinking of using Google for now on, it's the most reliable I guess...
