Photobucket kills free 3rd party hosting

Recommended Posts

I'm sure you've all seen the image in the last few days. Where there should be a picture is now a warning from Photobucket that your 3rd party hosting has been disabled and if you want to continue you have to pay $399 a year. The kicker is they didn't give anyone any warning. Just flipped the switch and waved a digital middle finger at the world.

I've had an account with Photobucket since 2006, disabled Ad-Blocker on their site (depsite their ads being annoying as hell) and recommended them to anyone asking about picture hosting. Not any more. I'll be downloading all my pics and moving to another hosting site soon. Imgur is the current front runner but I haven't made a decision yet. I'm also looking into my own website where I can host my pictures on my terms.
