I understand that Photobucket has begun holding stored images in order to get users to pay for their accounts and access to the stored images.

Here is a brief update on the issue from PC Mag.

Some posted images have already gone awry on some other forums.

My images have been hosted there [postimage.org], through simple registration, without fee, without advertising, and without threat of discard for well over three years.

I saw a tuto for postimage.org where they stated the images will be hosted for 90 days. the tuto was a few years old thought. I just tested it and it works fine, but the images could be gone in 90 days if what I heard is right...

For simplicity, I use http://postimages.org/ which requires a registration prior to use. They went through the "Contribution or Die" phase about 6-12 months ago. They resurrected themselves without advertising or fee to users. Should they reconsider some day, I will seek on-line image residence elsewhere. Some forums allow direct input from my PC to their site, allowing ME to share, keep and maintain my own photos and images.



Thanks land Owner !

I received this in an email late last night.

WE NOTICED THAT YOU HAVE BEEN USING
PHOTOBUCKET FOR 3RD PARTY HOSTING*

PLEASE UPGRADE TO A PLUS 500 PLAN.

Our Terms of Service does not allow 3rd party hosting with your current account level.
UPGRADE NOW




________________________________________
*What is 3rd Party Hosting?
Photobucket defines 3rd party hosting as the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website. For example, using the <img> tag to embed or display a JPEG image from your Photobucket account on another website such as a forum, Etsy, eBay auction listings, a blog, etc. is definitively 3rd party hosting.
Why Photobucket?
Photobucket is the global destination for linking and 3rd party hosting. In Photobuckets 14-year history, the Company amassed over 100 million registered users, over 15 billion images stored, 2 million daily uploads and 10 billion photos accessed monthly.
Easy to Use Upload a photo from any device and copy the embed code with one click to host a photo with no development or technical knowledge required
Competitive, fixed pricing Offers the only unlimited 3rd party hosting plan (Commercial and Personal Use)
Are my pictures still safe?
Yes! All your photos are still available by logging into your Photobucket Account. Photobucket has only restricted the ability to view your photos on 3rd party sites.
Can I download my Photos?
Absolutely, at any time. It is an easy four step process:
Step 1. Login to your Photobucket Account
Step 2. Navigate to your library page
Step 3. View a photo and click the download button
Step 4. The picture will be saved to your computer
