    wow, that's crazy!

    I still remember making my photobucket account in the primary school computer lab! I can't believe the price point they've chosen...just...wow.

    Image shack could be a replacement?
    Then again they'll probably all go in the same direction.
    Imagine if the likes of Facebook or Twitter ect started charging. Be the world's newest and biggest drug epidemic:p:D

    That's a fair hike, from zero to that.

    Quick way to finish your business if you ask me. Even fb would probably go under if they stuck a $400 a year bill on using it.

    I use imgur or tinypic :/

    Stupid move by photobucket, would work if they were the only ones to do what they do, but there's 100s of free ones!
