Photobucket is cracking down on people embedding on third-party websites images it hosts, until now, for free.

The photo-slinging internet elder now says that anyone who wants to use its service to display photos it hosts on other pages such as signature banners in forum posts will now need to open up their wallets and plop down $399.99 a year for a subscription plan.

Don't know how this is going to screw up our images on the site  Cry

This will screw up all the art photos I posted from my museum visits years ago. Luckily, I recently started aharing links instead.

How do you know Imgur won't change rules like PhotoBucket? Only way to ENSURE that we'll be good is to start hosting pics ourselves  Smiley

That might cost money.

Of course it may, as we'll have to expand our storage capacity.

I, for one, would be more than willing to chip in some dough to help run/improve the site. Perhaps we can get a few others ....
