It seems that 3rd party hosting will be back, at a more reasonable fee, from Photobucket. And the CEO that made the original decision is no longer with the company.

Looks like $99 a year for 100 gigabytes
Or $59 per year for 50 gigabytes.

Are y'all willing to pay that?

Nope!

I'm not sure, look at the 2017 deer thread, I can see all of my pictures using Photobucket.

All of my pictures, up until page 14 or 15 were using Photobucket.

I'm on my work computer now, I assume everyone else can see them too. Not sure? But they are all visible.

I just glanced at the deer thread I started in June of 2016, all of those pictures are visible, using Photobucket.

Looks like 137,000 times that thread has been viewed. I think it was on page 3 of this board.

Denver, May 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Photobucket today announced new, comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options that are being rolled out by a new management team focused on doing the right thing for customers. To re-establish trust among its long-standing and new customers, Photobucket has made changes to its pricing model that includes a competitively priced plan that fits the needs of many of its customers.

Photobucket is now offering a new, competitive subscription package with an ad-free experience, storage and third-party image hosting for just $1.99 per month (or $19.99 per year) - which is 95% less than their previous image hosting plan. A free subscription option is still available to customers who do not require third-party image hosting.

Photobucket’s new CEO is Ted Leonard, a technology and finance industry veteran who has deep roots as an entrepreneur. Over the past six months, he has assembled an experienced and customer-focused management team that has been working around the clock to reinvent Photobucket’s pricing structure and packages in a way that will best support customer needs. The new management team has a vision for building a renewed Photobucket that can attentively and fairly serve customers while also moving toward a sustainable business model.

“We have taken back Photobucket and are working diligently to return it to the premier image storing and hosting service that it was known as previously,” said Ted Leonard, CEO, Photobucket. “There were some mistakes made and we acknowledge them. Our new leadership is dedicated to helping our customers do great things with their images in a fair, cost-effective and valuable way.”

As of today, all hosted images that Photobucket’s customers had lost access to last year have been restored.

“There are more changes coming, but we hope that this initial subscription offering and restoring access to customers’ photos will help to reinstate goodwill among our customers who had depended on Photobucket to conduct business and share their work,” said Leonard.

Unless I misread this, the photos reappearing now are just a gesture of good will. There is no free plan that offers third party hosting. So I strongly encourage anyone who is not willing to pay for photobucket service to get their photos hosted somewhere else. They are quite liable to disappear again. The $1.99 per month is a limited time offer too.

I cannot find the 2 bucks a month one. The least expensive one I see is a fiver a month.
