I checked PB

They now offer three tiers of third party hosting, $59, $99 and $399.

Now the big question. Considering the fiasco over the last year will anyone use them for third party hosting?

I just might. All my photos are already there (originals also stored at other locations) and hopefully my links will start working again

P'bucket says:

Photobucket has a new management team that wants to do the right thing. We are committed to earning back your trust and offering comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options for our customers. We’ve taken your feedback and made some changes to our pricing model that allows us to offer competitively priced plans that fit the needs of all of our customers.

Today, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs.

For a limited time, we are offering a new, competitive subscription package that includes ad-free storage and 3rd party image hosting for just $1.99 per month, or $19.99 per year - which is 95 percent less than the previous pricing model. . . .

Too late for me, I deleted my account when they asked for too much money, would have stayed if the more reasonable prices had been offered in the first place.

It seems like my Pee-Bucket third party links work again, at least here on POTN.

I checked a thread from years ago, I changed my settings to allow PB images to be displayed refreshed the page and voila.

Has anyone checked the images they have hosted on Pee-bucket Lately.

I found the following post on another forum

[INDENT]For some odd reason my "3rd party hosted images" are working again. No mention of any changes from PB.

My photos never stopped working! Still working ...

I dropped 'em, too. Just finished clearing out my second account and deleting it.
It was too much, too intrusive. The pop-overs made it difficult to simply
navigate around a page.

This latest is too little, FAR too late.

They offer $19.99/yr. I'm a amateur photog and will never use up the same they offer. So, I pulled the trigger and paid the $19.99 so now the images are back to be seen here on the forum.

Will this work, or is it too little, too late? Time will tell, but once you lose customer trust, it will be hard to gain back.


The Captain and crew finally got their stuff together, now if we can only remember where we left it. :cool:

I removed all my pictures and cancelled my account, after 10 years of use. There is no way I will use Photobucket again.

Same here, except only 8 years, not 10.

Same, after about 12 years. Although haven't really used the site in the past 5 or so years. I hadn't realized how bad the click-bait became there. That, alone, is enough to keep me away.

Nope...never again. Screw me once, shame on you, screw me twice, shame on me. They're not getting a second chance to "surprise" me at some future date.
