I use the paperclip all the time, it opens my "Downloads" folder and allows me to select and upload an image from the computer.
The mountain (photo) allows you to enter the URL of a image that has a internet address, like in Imgur.

And i've been using that for a few months too...

My point is, that all other sites that have my threads with masses of PB content are restored, so making the threads make sense....
But here, they are not, so the actions that were taken here, are now backward...
All my threads that included pictures, are now pointless.

I solve the photo problem by using a hosting company for unlimited storage and web site space. The only restrictions are my imagination of what to put online.

Most of the images I post here are on my website theouterlimits.ws in subfolders for various projects.

I can upload web pages, videos, audio files and photo albums. My host is fatcow.com and they have a trial for about $50 a year.

Why is that?
Interesting. Can you point me to one or more of your posts or images that's having a problem?

This is the first I've heard of Photobucket returning from the grave (which was certainly where they were headed with their dumb pricing model) and I find that my ancient posts with photobucket links are showing images again, even though I'm not paying Photobucket anything at the moment. I'll have a look to see if I can tell why yours might not be showing up if you point me to some.

On a related note, their website doesn't even mention the $19.99/yr/10gb plan. The low-priced one they show on the website is $29.99/yr for 2gb. A news article I found mentions something close to what you mention... 10 gb for $1.99/month (which would be $23.88/yr and perhaps have a discount for paying up front) but it's funny they don't even reflect it on their own website yet.

David, it seems the previous CEO was tossed out after Pee-Bucket tanked after his decision.


Honestly, I wouldn't trust Pee-Bucket as far as i could pick up my trailer and throw it. If I had to use a photo hosting service I would look for a service with a solid reputation and good history. If Pee-Bucket did this once, they can do it again.

Terry,

I've no intention of using them for my photos going forward. However, I have hundreds of old ones stored there that are linked to posts on various and sundry websites so it's a) nice that they work again and b) nice that they've chosen a more reasonable pricing model for the average internet user rather than the $30/month lunacy set by the last CEO.

Why is that?
For some reason Airforums “blocked” all Photobucket links. Hopefully this will get the administrators of airforums to reconsider.
Thanks for posting Keyair.

This is a test-post. It's been 6 months since my last attempt to post photos, I've heard that with age comes wisdom...maybe now that I'm 6 months older, I'm a bit wiser too Mollysdad offered some suggestions that I'll be trying, thank you.

Ok...

Actually, Airforums did not block Photobucket photos. Photobucket did. It happened to me, and I got a message from Photobucket that they would no longer post to forums unless I would upgrade to a more expensive account with them. As far as I am concerned PB can stick it.

I use Imgur now that PB self destructed.
It's buggy, but free, and works once you understand what the bugs are. (I can't drag and drop photos into Imgur)
I see many use Flickr also.

Well, I'm getting the same results as I detailed in posts 36 and 37. The image seems to be attaching, or a least a link. When I save, exit, then return, there's no image. There's no way everyone else who posts images here is having this much trouble. If that were the case, there'd be nearly no images in posts...one of these times, it's going to work.

Trying Imgur...
https://i.imgur.com/4CujJ5Q.jpg

That seems to be working...is there a way to make the image itself show up, instead of having to click on the link?
