Photobucket...

I expect that MOST of you are aware of the changes that PHOTOBUCKET did to their site, increasing the cost to use their service by an enormous amount.

My "increase" would have started today, but there in NO WAY that I would pay that amount, so I have DELETED all my material from their site so that it can't be used by unauthorized persons.

I apologize to any of you who will be, or ARE, affected by my decision.

Same here. I now use IMGUR https://imgur.com/

Very easy to adapt to, free, and has built in editing software. You can also specify image size.

I started using flickr. It's worked pretty good so far. A little learning curve but once ya get it down it works well.

Best you download photos you don't want to lose straight away.
I got the message maybe 6 months back and now my account is blocked. Otherwise $99.99 pa for 3rd party posting rights.

they will let you download you files to your computer one time.

P Bucket... fork them, that was a rotten thing to do

if I'm answering your question I assume the basic points have been addressed, such as: did you do a compression test? is it still on fire?

How do you do it? I looked and can't find an "option" to download to my computer.

I cannot remember exactly but somewhere there is a download option - but I had to do one at a time.
Try looking on the BB code page for a "copy" or "Download" to click and paste, or right click on the full-sized photo for "copy".
Once you start, download all the pics that you want to save.

For everyone's information

If in old posts you are still seeing this :



and you use a "Chrome based" browser and you download this extension
then a lot of the hidden pictures will reappear

You guys really think the other "free" sites won't follow the path of photosuckit? Insert rant about your favorite (favourite for you Canucks) photo host here.

NOTHING on the internet is truly free for long, only absent direct cost. Those that believe otherwise are delusional. The internet is the greatest wealth creator in the history of mankind. It is also a time-sucking waste of human potential.

Let the F-you flames begin..... feel free to express yourself!!

So as a FREE Member vertical scope allows you to use their Gallery to post up to 1000 Photos for Free, there is a catch, that is all the advertising on this site, you need lots of bandwidth and expect no blazing speed. Also hopefully you post some informative info to attract more Free Members which generates more revenue,

There is (or was) a way. Click on a thumbnail of yours to get the full-sized picture. I had to do one at a time. Look for the word "download" or copy, or right-click on everything. Maybe a pull-down menu?
My account is now closed so I cannot go back to check.
