Default Photobucket Extortion

On June 30, 2017 Photobucket broke billions of images across the Interlink to extort cash from users.

All of my forum images have been repaired. All of my topics have been repaired. I have switched all my images to Flickr.

Default Welcome To The New Photobucket!

According to the Photobucket web site:
Photobucket has new management, and we are liberating your images!

As of today, your hosted images are live.

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. A free subscription option will still be available to customers who do not require 3rd party image hosting.
Here is their new pricing plan.

The Flickr hammer has come down.

The updated Flickr service plans have been announced.

The free plan permits up to 1,000 images to be hosted. Free users with more than 1,000 images will be prohibited from adding additional images and excess images will be deleted, oldest first, starting in January and February.

The Flickr Pro pay service is $50/year with unlimited images, enroll before the end of November for $35/year.
