General Discussion / Photobucket
« on: July 20, 2017, 10:53:35 AM »
For the last 10 years I have used photobucket for sharing albums and hosting images I post to forums. I have posted nothing important there although over time some of those photos have become important as they may be the only surviving copy due to lost disks or the people in them have died.
Apparently photobucket changed their T&C's in June.

The following was received by email today:


Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.
*What is 3rd Party Hosting?

Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website. For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, a blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.
Why Photobucket?

Photobucket is the global destination for linking and 3rd party hosting. In Photobucket’s 14-year history, the Company amassed over 100 million registered users, over 15 billion images stored, 2 million daily uploads and 10 billion photos accessed monthly.

Easy to Use – Upload a photo from any device and copy the embed code with one click to host a photo with no development or technical knowledge required

Competitive, fixed pricing Offers the only unlimited 3rd party hosting plan (Commercial and Personal Use)
Are my pictures still safe?

Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on 3rd party sites.
Can I download my Photos?

Absolutely, at any time. It is an easy four step process:

Step 1. Login to your Photobucket Account

Step 2. Navigate to your library page

Step 3. View a photo and click the download button

Step 4. The picture will be saved to your computer

They are very coy about what their Plus 500 plan is should I give them my card details I would find out at that point and not before they are demanding $399 for using their service.

So I have spent the morning trying to download my albums and recover my pictures. Presumably this functionality has been disabled due to the rush of people downloading then deleting their photos.
this takes the demands for cash to the level of extortion.

I am not about to pay them a cent and am resigned to losing what I haven't got copies of. This in part is my fault I am aware that  if you don not pay for the service you are the product and should not be in this position.
All I can hope for is a swift end to the company as the majority of light users refuse to be extorted.
