From their new terms of service (due to come into play on the 20th of June):

Photobucket wrote:
Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.
Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.
Ad-free Account : The Ad-free Account offers Members the ability to use the Site without seeing any third party banner advertisements when logged into your Ad-free Account (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts and you will continue to see Photobucket offers and announcements). This account level is available for $2.49 / month, payable by the Member on a monthly recurring basis.
Plus Account : The Plus Account offers several paid options that may give the Paying Member more storage, bandwidth, 3rd party image hosting, image linking and/or other services as outlined below. Once and during such period of time in which you subscribe to and pay for a Plus Account, we will consider you a "Paying Member." Please note that all Plus Account subscriptions are billed annually at the commencement of the service. Photobucket may also offer a monthly billing option for its Plus Accounts (see terms and restrictions, below).
Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account Plans:
o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.

I know, right? If they said $5 a year for hosting, I'd understand - but the idea that the bandwidth they go through costs hundreds is just daft.

Wholesale bandwidth is pennies these days. Seriously, that's why they can sell you unlimited 50Mb/sec broadband for £5 a month (just not in the UK where the prices are jacked).

I mainly use it to store photos that I want to use on forums. Actually, this one forum.

Which is what a lot of people do (they encouraged it for years).

I think the main point of photobucket is to give people a place where they can share their family album automatically, and send photos they really like off to be printed with a click.

I have paid them $36 a year for years because I link a lot of pics on various forums and I think that was fair enough......however $400 is a joke!!!

I'm going to have a lot of work to do to sort out all my build thread pics etc when they kill all my links :argh: luckily all my pics are still showing for now it seems :hmm:

I guess I'm going to have to try and increase our server space and lift the photo upload size limit.....it's going to be cheaper than paying photobucket......That's the main thing I really don't understand about this move by them? It's cheaper to have your own website with more server space and unlimited bandwidth than what they are asking for an individual account just to host pictures??

Turns out as I already have a paid account on there, my photos will be displayed until 31st Dec 2018.....At least I have a good amount of time to download them all and host them on here instead.
