Photobucket

I've been reading on a couple other forums that Photobucket has changed their terms of service and won't do third party hosting unless you join their Plus 500 plan (at $400 a year!). It looks like it has wiped out most of the pics I had posted here, so I'll get them hosted somewhere else (I'm telling PB to shove it!) and get them back up!

This seems to have caught-out a number of eBay sellers...
Photobucket are probably unhappy about having all the image views (and bandwidth consumption)
... but not seeing associated sales revenue.

A couple of blogs have referred to them as 'PhotoF~~Kit"

Yup, has done a number on several other forums I'm on. I host my own through my website. A bit cheaper than $400 at $179 a year. Nobody can tell me I need to pay more for linking to my website. Also through my internet provider, Frontier, I have a free site: http://frontiernet.net/~thecat/

So, have we figured out an alternative to Photobucket yet?

The best alternative is own web space or you upload it at each forum. I prefer the latter.
Lok-n-Roll.de - we are shipping worldwide :wink:
