Announcement - Photobucket images no longer working

Hello,

Photobucket.com has recently changed its terms of service for free users on their platform. As of June 20 images hosted by Photobucket and shared on our forum, or any other third party sites, will no longer appear. As a result, you may notice a higher amount of broken images on the forum.

If you do not have access to edit your older posts please contact an Administrator or Moderator for assistance. Please provide the new URL for the image that needs to be edited and a link to the thread the image in located in.

More information on the change and what it means for Photobucket users can be found below.

Photobucket Terms of Use http://photobucket.com/terms

Thank you

So far any photo that I have linked to Photobucket is still visible on various forums. The little box that allowed you to link to an image is gone but that doesn't mean you still cannot link to a Photobucket picture. In windows right click on any image that you have uploaded to Photobucket and a menu appears. One of the selections is "Copy Image Location". Click on this selection and you will be able to paste the link in any online forum that supports the [IMG][/IMG] tags. This was the old school way of linking to an image from another site. This is what the copied and then pasted link looks like from one of my pictures on Photobucket:

http://i265.photobucket.com/albums/i...ps6mwrrb1v.jpg

As you can see its an url to my picture's location. Now when I place the url between the [IMG][/IMG] tags the image will become visible in the forum like this:



This I believe is a windows function and not a function of the host site. You can link images from just about anywhere on the internet using this method. Not quite as convenient as just copying and pasting the url but still quite doable.

I hope this helps someone out there.

Funny though, I deleted the account days ago.

Well, I have a paid subscription, and still can't get this to work. Hrmph.

More research is in order.


Edit: Ooooookay. I'll have to major-league bump up my paid subscription to get my linking back, evidently. BOO! Ain't doing it.

SECOND EDIT: Hang on, I think I got it. Annoying extra step, but I'll take it rather than giving Photobucket even more money to hold my photos than I already do.

Trying again. Just as Woodswoman did it.


Oh well, if they leave my account up, I can always do a screen grab then post in the pic uploads area.
If you have a Mac, shift-command-4 will give you a curser you can cut anything out with, just make sure of where you save it.

It worked for me too

Log in into your photobucket click on the image you want to post. Click on the submenu and select to copy image location. The paste that link to the (img) code.

05 C50 --> 05 C90 --> 07 FLHX --> 08 GL1800 / 1994 FXSTS --> 2007 DL650 / 2011 FLTRU --> 2017 FLTRXS Woooo!!!
