Photobucket- one to avoid?


It all began last week when Photobucket announced in a short blog post that it had updated its terms of service that had begun taking effect from June 20th. Nowhere in the blog post did Photobucket highlight the most important change, which was that it will now cost uploaders $400 a year to insert their photos on another website using direct image links… More at The Verge.

I am very late to this one, but it sure does look like Photobucket is in trouble. Why else would you start acting like scumbags?

  1. I could be wrong but I thought it had been announced that their hosting / AWS costs were immense and their revenue much less…

    I don’t have a huge amount of sympathy for those who were using the free service for commercial purposes, though, rather than using their own image hosting (at a cost).
