Every 6-12 months they change things around making me furious. I know the 'service' is free but all I want is my pictures not all that other media BS. It's always painfully slow and even slower to navigate through it. Takes forever to find your pictures... I have over 400 transmission pictures there. Fuck them up the ass

Last year all of my mobile uploads got deleted and when I re-uploaded all of them it said I was over on my storage which wasn't the case before they got deleted and they locked me out of my account. I couldn't even get in and delete photos to free up space until I payed them $60 to increase my storage space. Now this? Such bullshit!

I just realized that Photobucket pulled third party hosting on all of the pictures I have had on Photobucket for years, no warning just did it.  This means all my links are broken to the Pictures in my posts and my pictures are being held (for better lack of words) for ransom.  From there scheduled payment payment plans the only plan that allows third party hosting is 500 GB - $399.99 / Year.  FUCK PhotoBucket!!!  Time to start my own web site for my photos.

I read this below, don't be pressured into buying the package they are offering, that back stabbing company will just turn around and do it again in the next couple years.

Photobucket may make a quick buck from the unannounced change, as some members may feel pressured in paying up so that their images are displayed again on third-party sites.

I think however that many more will leave Photobucket and use another service instead for image hosting. This may be fueled by site-wide bans of the service.

The plan is overpriced in my opinion, not only because there are free alternatives available out there, but also because you may sign up for a VPS or web hosting account instead for a fraction of the price that Photobucket charges.

Even if it would be priced reasonably, and Photobucket has any right to adjust its pricing, blocking images without prior notice or migration options, especially since this was free before, is not the most elegant of ways to go about it.

Just to note guys, the photos still come up if you open them in a new tab from the "placeholder/blackmail image" they have so don't delete your accounts just yet. 

 

Also, you can download the whole "bucket" this is an option on the main page of your bucket, takes a while to process and then gives you a zip file to download.

 

I'm currently downloading my photos and will never upload anything there again. Looking at using imgur in the future.

My free account is at 23% usage and after I hit 22% I had problems loading photo bucket. so I started using NoScript a Fire Fox add in.  Ghostery logged 78 adware programs running before I added NoScript.  With NoScript running allowing just enough to get PhotoBucket to load Ghostery is showing 6 adware programs.

 

This is more like ransom ware than a legitimate business.

You can download you albums to your computer but when you try yhere ar several popups that take a lot of time to get around to download your files.

 

Unfortunately for me those are the only copies of the pictures I have.  So if I want the pictures I have to play PhotoBuckets adware mind fuck game.  I only have about 500 more file to download.

 

The albums come down as a as a WinRar zip file and you have to extract you pictures.  I have done several of my albums and all have come down clean.

 

One thing I think is helping me is all of my picture files are sized to 480x640.

Yup, same here; I have photos on my PB that go back to like three hard drives ago; only have them on PB now. On the plus side, 3600+ images only come out to being a 983mb rar file (like you, I'm downloading my entire bucket), so smaller than I was expecting.

 

What ads are you dealing with? I'm using Ublock Origin with a couple custom scripts, and am getting nothing at all, just the CAPTCHAs when downloading.

Ads have been hitting my account hard for about a year now.  I was running an ad blocker and photo bucket went completely past it to the point if I ran the ad blocker on PhotoBucket photoBucket did not load because of the amount of popups running.

All my pictures are on my other computer. I don't need PB But I do need a picture hosting site. Actually many of my pictures are on Google Images, or were, I hope.

My Google Images are all still there also, but I refused to sign up for that service when they changed over, I just leave that account alone, I can still use them images, I just have to remember where they are(which thread), copy and paste them to my new posts when needed, I just cannot go to the site and copy them.
