semi-ot: photobucket pics

Maybe I'm the last to figure this out, but when a Photobucket "3rd party hosting" ransom graphic is shown instead of a posted pic, you can still click on the graphic and get to the album the original pic is in.
Unfortunately, Photobucket is completely infested with ads.
In my limited testing, Chrome did the best job of blocking ads, letting only a few through.
Of course, it isn't easy to figure out which pic in an album was supposed to be in a post - but at least we can see the album.

For what it's worth...

I lost a lot of my car pics on PB. I have no idea how to recover them even though I've tried to log into my old account.

DAMN YOU,PHOTOBUCKET! You used to be a good site.

They had sent out emails letting people know they were changing to a pay site and gave a certain amount of time for people to remove their pictures. I down loaded all of mine on to a thumb drive a save them. I have not yet found another free web hosting site. I honestly have not felt like expending the time or energy.

I've been stumped about posting pics since the Photobucket change.

Could an admin or knowledgeable users post instructions in the FAQs?

I know several members say "why worry about 3rd party hosting etc. when you can just upload directly" or something to that effect.

For the life of me I can't figure out how to "upload directly". I see "attach" but no "upload" Unless the function is one of the icons.

I've tried to attach a small picture lets see how it works.

How about a bigger picture.

I actually got totally out of PB and closed the account. I am currently uploading everything to Google. We'll see if they will provide individual links.

I use Imgur. Never had an issue because the whole point of Imgur is to have maximum exposure of the images. Of course I never put anything on there that I can't lose or worry about someone getting unrestricted access to.

Don't use Google! I started with them a few years ago when they had Picasa Web Albums, which were just fine - easy to link and low bandwidth.
They closed all that down, locked up my photos and I can no longer use them.

Try PostImages.org - you can create an account and make albums,
Posting individual photos in various sizes is no problem.



No ads, fairly easy to use and flexible.

when you visit various forums and see the blank spots where the pictures used to be it's kinda like they broke the internet

Hey, pedigo - find one of your old posts that had photobucket pics.
Click on photobucket's ransom graphic.
Your browser should open on Photobucket, still showing the ransom graphic, but also showing who uploaded the graphic, or maybe what album it is in.
That is a link, and you can follow it to view the photos.
They will show you the pics, you just have to suffer the bleeping ads.

If you have Chrome, use it for Photobucket - it seems to resist the stinking ads better than other browsers.

If your default/normal browser isn't Chrome, you can right-click on the original ransom graphic and select "copy link location"
Then open Chrome, and paste the link address into Chrome's address bar.

Anyway - I was able to get to a number of albums and pics on PB. You probably can too.

If you use google chrome there is a photobucket plug in that allows you to see the pics as if there never was a photobucket problem. It works on most pb pics.
