    Been noticing in the last few days that PB is now downrezzing the photos that link to them until the image is a hardly recognizable blurr. Anyone else see this?

    I don't understand why anybody would be using Photobucket anymore to have problems like that.

    Problem is many old posts are still linked to PB.

    Found the statement from PB:

    THE FREE ACCOUNT OFFERS LIMITED IMAGE HOSTING THAT CONTAINS A PHOTOBUCKET WATERMARK THAT REFLECTS THAT THE IMAGE IS HOSTED FOR FREE BY US. FREE HOSTING IS LIMITED TO 25MB PER ACCOUNT (NOT PER IMAGE) IN EACH ROLLING 30 DAY PERIOD. IN THE EVENT A FREE ACCOUNT EXCEEDS 25MB IN A ROLLING 30 DAY PERIOD, THE IMAGES SHALL ALL BE BLURRED AND WATERMARKED UNTIL THE EARLIER OF: (A) BANDWIDTH USAGE IN A ROLLING 30 DAY PERIOD DROPS BELOW 25MB, OR (B) YOU PURCHASE A DESIGNATED PAID PLAN (INTERMEDIATE OR EXPERT LEVEL PLANS) THAT OFFERS UNLIMITED HOSTING.

    Yup, they can take a picture of my middle finger and look at that.

    They made that site absolute garbage. I can barely open it up long enough to retrieve old pics.

    Yes, you have to pay if you want someone else to store them for you. It is much cheaper in the long run to store your photos at home on your own computer than to keep paying someone else to do it.
