How many people use Photobucket to link photos?
Do you pay for the service?
Photobucket have changed their terms so anyone with the free service is now asked/ransomed to pay $400 a year for a plus 500 account to continue their 3rd party hosting of pictures. If you don't pay your links are disabled and every photos previously hosted will disappear.
What alternatives are there?

Good idea, if it happens maybe not only car related? A bit like the Retro Rides "Readers (sic) other modifications" section?

Nice Volvo!

It would be great I think if we had a "Non - SAAB Projects" thread on here. I'm always interested in what other people with similar tastes are up to. I might have a few (too many!) distractions on the go that might be interesting... Must get back to that 95...!

I will post elsewhere later..don't want to disrupt this thread.

Awesome John, feel free to entertain us with more Volvo on here!

That looks nice John, but then I am biased...........

I'm using imgBB with some success.
Heres the reason I will be quiet on this forum for a little while.

Interesting, because you must have uploaded them to PB since they started to put the mockers on the system.............

I've just tried to upload a pic which worked OK and then posted it to the Volvo forum. Just got the PB block logo so it's a fail for me.

Maybe PB don't mind you uploading pictures but it's using them again on the forums etc that's the problem. I've only ever used it to enable me to use the Img facility for here and elsewhere. As far as I know that no longer works, so I won't be adding any more. They were all downsized versions anyway and were copied to PB so I still have them all.

Mine seems to be working for now. I did pay a bit extra a few years ago, to remove adverts, so maybe that's why?

If I add images via the upload button, it asks me to clarify my email address, but if I use the 'Editor' link, I can upload images without having to do this.

Hi Guys,
Simon - thanks, sorry for the slow reply. I found the download all button but it doesn't seem to work, I have tried it at home and at work both with good broadband. It comes up with a simple error message, I suspect they don't want it to work!
Anyway, I have backed up most photos off there one by one. Sounds painstaking but I only have a few hundred and it's actually quite a fast process.
I think I'll continue to link to PB for existing projects as it works for now, might even be a 95 shaped update soon...

I am also in the Photobucket stranglehold. The diference between the various ransoms they ask is that only with the $400 option you have the possibility to show your pictures on other sites. Time to move on.

Hi Gareth, Fairly sure there's a 'download all' button - depends if you have multiple folders. I never bothered to file mine, but have over 70 pages of images on there. I've downloaded them for now, but not sure whether to put them elsewhere.
