Angry Photo Bucket Dropped All 3rd party hosting

May not be the right place for this but it will get seen more this way. It appears that photobucket has decided to stop 3rd party hosting if you do not pay. Which pretty much ruins most of the threads with pics.

I got that notice a couple weeks ago. $399 annual ransom. Not going to happen. I'm already paying Microsoft $99 a year for OneDrive storage and Office 365. When I get the time, I'll be migrating all my pic off PB to OneDrive and closing my PB account.

There was probably a bunch of people using PB for commercial business: Etsy, etc. PB wanted their 'cut'.

What sucks is that a lot of 'historic' technical threads will be rendered useless because of this.

I got the email today also. Same thing other free image hosting sites did when they got popular enough. Time to find a new host. I see some are using Dropbox successfully, I haven't tried that yet

So I assume that all free photo sharing sites will go this route at one point or another.... Which leaves the question: Does anyone know how to post pics without a third party site? Or is it even possible ?

You can. Being a supporting member allows you to upload right from your device.

I wondered about that. What happens to the pics when you stop being a supporting member? Do they get locked out then?

When your subscription ends, the pictures stay, you just can't upload more.
