Default Photobucket pics

I'm finding that people's Photobucket pics are not showing up and the message in place of the picture says to update the account to allow third party sharing. Is there a way to fix this from my end or is it really a matter of being a broken link?

Whoever owns the photobucket account that posted the pics has to subscribe to one of the new photobucket plans to fix it .. nothing you can do about it ..

Photobucket shafted us all (all those that used the site as a host for forum pictures for years) by changing their policy and requiring an unreasonable (in my view) amount of $'s to continue hosting photos.
No 'grandfather' clause.

Everything posted using Photobucket as a host went dead.

It is not you....

Default Odd

It's odd cause my photos still show-up, while others' clearly don't. I have the usual, standard what was free account. I'm sure they'll catch-up with me eventually.

That's too bad. Thanks for letting me know. Vic had some pictures posted about some problems on tailcones that I wanted to see.

I think all the free photo parking sites will be forcing users to pay a monthly fee in the near future. It's become a saturated market so enduring the endless adds while you use the site is not paying the bills for them any more. I posted an alternative that will literally set you free. It is not free but once done you are the master of your photo fate so to speak. If you want your photos to be available after your demise you will have to arrange for a trustee to make the annual payments to the host in perpetuity

If you happen to have a web site for business purposes or a blog for your build then use that, it's all the same.

I found this advice on another forum I visit, and the solution worked for me and takes less than a minute, so I thought I'd share it here.

Quote:

I don't know if this was posted already, but I stumbled across a post on a forum yesterday and found it worked for me.

Quite a few of us used Photobucket to post photos all over the Internet on our favorite forums...and when they converted over to being a pay service, we got that dreaded box below demanding $399 a year to continue using their service.

In a previous post, it stated that there are a few browser extensions that reverse this issue and allow the pictures to be viewed again.

If you're using Google Chrome like I do, go to the three dots on the right side of the screen and click them. A drop down should appear. Hover your mouse over "More Tools," and when the next drop down appears, slide over and click on "Extensions". Go to the link towards the bottom that says "Get more extensions." In the search box, type "Photobucket Fix," and hit Enter. Three versions of this service appear...I chose the first one. Click the install button and once it's done, you should be able to see Photobucket pictures again on the forums where you saw the dreaded box.

For FireFox users, click on the three bars on the right side of the screen, then click on "Add Ons". Click search for "Photobucket hotlink" and click Install. Same result.

Hope this helps...

I set up the Firefox add on tonight and the blanked out photos were visible. I'm sure the geeks at photo bucket will soon find a counter measure

Doug, that's just peachy. Do we assume you're not going to move toward providing a permanent home for VAF photo posting?

Can't you make money hosting photos at $3.99 a month?
