Hi Guys,

important new policy change for photobucket. As of June 28 (2017), users of Photobucket can no longer link/embed their images on 3rd party sites such as this forum for free. From now on, Photobucket users who wish to show their images on other sites have to pay an annual fee of nearly $400. Until that fee is paid, all existing images on forums and blogs that have been downloaded from user galleries on Photobucket have been blocked or deleted and will not be restored until the user agrees to pay the annual fee.

Needless to say, many Photobucket users have not responded well to this announcement, especially given that there was no notice or warning given, nor email announcements prior to June 28. To go from free to $400 per year seems a sudden leap! 

Personally, I’m closing my photobucket account and changing to Google photos or Imgur. 

Cheers, Pete

Hi Pete

Just saw this post, belatedly. Thank you for sharing this information.

That sucks for all Photobucket users, including me! hitler

Anyway, you don’t need it for eHangar.com as you can upload your images directly to eHangar.com in your posts. cool1
