Default Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

Question Re: Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hi, is there any way to fix all these dead links myself? I've migrated all my photos to Google Drive and in another forum I've managed to go through them all and fix them up...if I had a choice I'd much rather do all this myself as there's quite a few to be done. If I could reload the new addresses to my threads that would be great.

Thanks, Alex.

Can't grant individual editing powers I'm afraid. Would have to change for the entire site.

Send changes to us, and we can assist with fixing the links

They revamped all their pricing plans and now the only one that allows 3rd party linking costs $399 per year, and all of your previous links are no longer valid until you cough up. Absolutely shameless !

Hi Kevin - ok no worries, I understand. I'll get all the threads and associated photolinks together in due course, many thanks.

Like Big Al says, to get 3rd party linking costs $399 p/a, I got this as well And I have about 400 pics so far. But rather than be held hostage by their ransom demand I saved all my photos, removed my account, migrated the photos and fixed up all the dead links in my other forums. Hard work which has taken hours but worth it.

3rd party hosting remains for a limited time if you are already on a paid plan such as yours but I understand it's just for a short period. New and existing free account holders MUST take up the new 'Plan 500' package to continue 3rd party hosting. Whilst there are more affordable plans in existence they will no longer include 3rd party hosting.

AHA! obviously I do not see that message. be interesting to see what happens when current plan ends.

Flickr has finally fixed their editing feature. so will carry on with that and let PB expire.

According to their new T&C's you will continue to receive 'full privileges' until Dec 31st 2018 as long as you retain subscription.

Default Re: Announcement - Photobucket images no longer wo

I use TinyPic which is a free hosting account owned by Photobucket. I find that I am able to post images in other forums using their tags [IMG]photo.jpg[/IMG], while here, the image doesn’t show. Maybe it is because I’m often using my iPad Pro, or maybe it’s something else — like me using the wrong tags.

Regardless, it is frustrating. Certainly nowhere as easy as uploading images to Facebook or Twitter, that’s for sure. (For the record, I don’t use ‘mobile apps’ with my iPad.)

Tinypic is not HTTPS, and thus their images are blocked on Chrome/Firefox on HTTPS sites. You will need to use an HTTPS service like imgur.
