    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!

    They seem to have finally come to their senses.

    All the 3rd party hosting rights have been reinstated.

    Bout bloody time.
