So Photobucket decided to remove 3rd party image hosting support (including in ALL old posts using images hosted by them) unless you pay for a $39.99 (!) monthly plan.
So in some cases bloggers and the like had used them to put images in their stuff for years, and now it's all just broken, "3rd party image hosting not supported' images instead. I'm sort of screwed cause I'd used it for years to share things like screenshots and photos here and elsewhere, and now they're all broken images.
I wouldn't be surprised if they lose most of their users over this. I would've been glad to upgrade to a reasonable monthly plan, but $480 a year???
I would've thought they would've added some limited 3rd party image hosting option for folks like me that don't do a whole lot of it.
Going over really well on Twitter (btw, didn't realize we can embed Tweets here; could be useful sometimes):
I'd considered imgur some time ago but something about the interface wasn't appealing to me.
Gonna check on something called smugmug.
If anyone can suggest any other image hosting services that support 3rd party hosting (whether free or maybe some reasonable fee), I'd be interested, thanks. I'll likely be archiving locally some images from my Photobucket account and eventually closing it.
