I saw this at Kuribo64 and decided to share it here as well. If you use photobucket, please move your images elsewhere (I.E. You're own host or another image place) so any place that uses images aren't destroyed by the "Please upgrade your account" message. This is especially important for layouts so those don't become unreadable as well. Please share this at other forums as well and get the word out ASAP!

Photobucket decided to become an evil abomination regarding hotlinking. It's much better to use a site such as Imgur these days.


The world could always use more heroes!

Yeah I went ahead and downloaded everything off my Photobucket then erased my account... there's no way I'm paying no damn $99 just to allow third party linking ;)

Good! Imageshack went to something similar but at least you get a 30 day free trial so meaning you could create an account, upload your photos then when your 30 days is up, delete the account and restart and do it as many times as you want!

Although that'd be pretty tedious compared to using something else that hasn't gone to shit due to company greed.

It's the same way with imageshack too I believe unless it's hidden somewhere.

I didn't know about this until I saw my layout.

Deleting everything now.

I'll figure something out or just go layoutless.

But come on, after all these years, Photobucket NOW wants to do this. Jeez.

imgur is currently in vogue, but the best one is probably your own hosting still


Posted by someone else, somewhere else
Possible alternatives:

* imgur, as long as it doesn't suck (enjoy while it lasts)


not that I'm saying Imgur is bad currently but...I recommend it for temporary images only, I can easily imagine they doing something like what Imageshack and Photobucket did

also it's been a while since I last posted here

Just because they haven't done it doesn't mean they're not going to do it in the far future.
Something like postimage.org would be safer to use, although the future may be unkind for postimage.org too.
Oh and puush exists too.

I’d recommend pi.gy (which does support HTTPS but it isn’t in the default generated URL shown to you), it is uncompressed, no-shit image hosting that doesn’t need an account and isn’t bloated with meme crap unlike Imgur. :)

OTOH, another option is to get something like XAMPP and host off your own machine (like I do with some of my images) :D

Waste of effort and you'd need to keep your computer up the whole time. Best to just order your own VPS if you're going to go self-hosted. :)

The big problem is that image-hosting is kind of a big loss; they take up a lot of space and if you're hotlinking them they can't make money-- I wouldn't trust any large free image host to not do this eventually.

Ah, capitalism...

To be fair, I keep one desktop running 24/7 (a Lenovo SFF ThinkCentre which uses barely any power) because it runs my web server and a radio station :)

Okay, now you have my attention. It runs a radio station?

Not everyone has the resources to do that is my point. I definitely don't as I only have 2 laptops.
But what is this radio station? ^^

I used to run a server on my home computer, and then turned it off every night-- hey, it works for me! Problem must be on your end.

That was ages ago though-- now I just have a VPS.
