Photobucket images - not for forum use

Recently the image hosting service Photobucket changed their terms of use for account holders and no longer allow embedded images to be displayed on forums. As a result the forum had many threads lose their photo documentation.

Moving forward we will disallow links to Photobucket and ask that you store your images with the posted text that they were intended to augment, here on the forum.

Forum members can store images posts and threads using the attachment option found in the advanced reply editor or in photo albums set up in individual profiles. There is no cost to store images here and this will ensure that your content is not diminished by an image hosting service changing their minds about how your content is handled. Thanks for understanding.

Yep, I gave up on Photobucket when it became so slow it was unusable. They have driven all the free accounts out.
Today I got an e-mail from them complaining that I had used images in other web sites. Yes, they're my images!
The attachment option works so much better anyway.

This is sad. I understand the issues with Photobucket gouging users that have been utilizing the website for free. I pay $2/mo and have had a very good experience with them. I would hope you would reconsider.
Thx
Jeff

$2 a month for what, exactly? Photobucket wants $400 per year for the honor of allowing their users to link to forums.

Many of the forum sites I frequent have place holders now where the PhotoBucket images used to be. The upload is easy to use so I don't see why anyone would want to park their pictures there. I used Picasa, and Yahoo Photos, now I only use Google. Free and no issues.

I switched to Imgur as I was not aware of the attachment option...I will start attaching photos in the future...seems way easier indeed.

I guess I'm grandfathered in. I have been paying them $2/mo for all the pics I have stored there. Have been very good to work with. I totally understand why everyone is ticked off at them. I've seen the $400 number on other sites. I'll never pay that. I guess when they catch up with me, and want me to pay the $400, I'll be gone. This forum is the only one I visit that isn't accepting PB links. The other forums still accept pics. Not that big of a deal. Just surprised me.

It appears that if you were still on the free plan, the links have been cut, so the images no longer appear. My old posts are still working, but I'm paying PB.
Other forums haven't blocked PB like this one. I'm not sure why this forum took that approach. Maybe trying to punish PB? Hopefully PB will see the error of their ways, and not try to get hundreds of dollars from folks using their service. $20-$30 a year would make sense, and maybe they wouldn't lose 99% of their customers.

STORING the photos isn't the issue. LINKING those photos so others in places like this forum, IS the problem. You can store them all you want, you are just not allowed to link to them for viewing.
At this point, all the photos I stored there for the purpose of linking them from forums with attachment limits have been replaced by the "upgrade your account to view" image.

That's exactly what I said. Only I didn't use CAPS for linking and storing? Still wondering why this forum won't allow the links that are still working? Mine are still working.

DO you have directions for such?!! Because attempting to post photos here has been a huge problem from Day 1.

Simply click "Go Advanced", enter your text in the usual area, then scroll down to the "Manage Attachments" tab. Click that, and follow the prompts to add an image from your computer.

When I upload images I find the amount of space available is diminishing to a point where pics will no longer be allowed. How does one increase the available space?
