    Important Changes To Your Account

    On January 15, 2019, Photobucket is implementing the following changes to our free and premium accounts that will impact our members: Our free plan storage limit is now 2.5GB

    Effective January 15, 2019, all existing free accounts will be limited to 2.5GB regardless of prior storage limits. This means that If your account is over its available space, you will need to purchase one of our affordable premium plans or download images so that your account meets the new 2.5GB limit.

    Act now to ensure that you have the storage you need!
    For a limited time, get our Expert Plan at the Beginner Plan Price of only $4.03!*

    Poor buggers are loaded down with ass holes like me that just never closed up shop since they dropped third party hosting.

      Yup... haven't paid 'em a moments attention since. And, they became so loaded down with ads, you could hardly do a thing in it in any case.

        First time I’ve been in my account in awhile. Guess you can post free photos for now.

        Love their watermark. Lol

          I got the same notice. I decided to download all of my pics and delete my account. I probably have the pics somewhere anyway, but I'd like to get them just in case.

          But not only have the bastards f'd up their service, they also removed the option to download albums. You have to download pic individually. Just to make it more difficult to leave the service I'm sure.

          But I found a Chrome extension for $2 that lets you download all of your photos. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/d...cacoojpkeopelc
          It's working great for me. You have to download each album separately, but still much faster. Im not sure if it downloads videos though.

          My PB account is now history.

            I’m confused! I’m able to log into my old account and see all my albums. Says it’s 31% full. Will PB still host the photos I have in there?

              They're not removing your account or photos, but on the free level they won't allow you photos to be embedded on 3rd party sites. You still need to be on a paid plan for that to work, but it's a lot cheaper than the hundreds it used to be. Too little to late in my opinion.

            For now I can post pics from PB and I haven’t paid a dime.
            The free accounts just have to put up with their watermark.

            We will see what happens after 1/15...

            Well, been reading their terms a little closer. I suspect those few images I posted above will disappear in a couple weeks (1/15/2019) so, they still suck!

              Well, the 15th came, and went, and I can still see my old photos posted from FB.

              What kind of crap they trying to pull? Was that a bluff? Did they have a change of heart?
