OMG - thanks for letting me know.
Looks like Photobucket changed their terms on 28th (with no warning) and now want $399 a year for people upload pics to them and share them other places (3rd party hosting)!!!  Um Not a chance!!

I'm in the middle up the finishing touches on the new-look beeunique which should go fully live over the weekend, so after that I will get onto this and get all photos hosted elsewhere.

Thanks again x

WTF wasn't that the whole point of Photobucket?!

Exactly what I thought and am now wondering if it was free so companies could use the images in different places and then have no choice but to pay the $399 to get them showing again - would be cheaper for some than getting a coder to change all the links.

Will take me a good few hours to root out and change the images so I will get Beeunique finished first as been working on that over a month and about to go live in next couple of days, so want it finished.  I will get these images sorted after that - thanks again for letting me know x

NOTE - found on the web from others in the same situation (they did not email me):
QuoteHad an email from Photobucket this morning basically saying they want $399.99 a year to reinstate 3rd party hosting (what I use to display the images in the Comping Guide).

I've been onto their website this morning and they updated their TOS 28 June 2017 so I guess this new restriction is as a result of updated terms.

That is so bad of them not informing people!

I would guess they did, but a lot will have gone to spam, ignored or old email addresses. I know my photobucket account is on an old email!

Apparently no emails, just a blog post to say check the updated ToS  :o

To be fair, that post Nickki posted did say they had an email. Lots of people saying they didn't get an email doesn't mean they didn't send them, it could just mean that lots/most didn't see the email for whatever reason.

I can't blame photobucket for changing the policy as it must cost a fortune, but they did it a bit too suddenly (even if they did send out emails) and $399 a year does seem pretty steep.
