Photobucket hosting ban!

Post by petecossie » Fri 30 Jun, 2017 11:38

I imagine I'm not the only one to suffer with this. They have send out an e-mail (I got mine yesterday) to say that terms and conditions have changed and that free 3rd party hosting not allowed unless you change to I believe a monthly subscription. Seems a bit like blackmail to me.

I've deleted a large number of pictures from my bucket to see if that makes any difference to whether I still have the "temporary ban".

I've used Photobucket for years and it has been getting more & more difficult to use with the constant pop up ads. Maybe a good chance to move somewhere else.

So folks which is the best FREE image hosting site?

Looks like a lot of photos on this forum might unfortunately eventually disappear as people say sod it, they are not getting money from me.
They certainly won't get any from myself.

I'm kind of glad about this because photobucket is such a dreadful site - if I try and look at anything on it I find it slows my PC to a crawl. Hopefully this should push people onto other hosting sites that are better/quicker/etc...

I've downloaded all my pictures from PB and am trying Imgur instead.

As a regular redditor I prefer imgur. It's always done me well.
