    Photobucket and new terms of service

    I did a quick search for another thread on this topic but could not find one...wondering how others are dealing with new terms of service from Photobucket.

    for me, the biggest one so far is that their free account no longer offers image linking so all the photos I have linked to FCB are now longer visible.

    I have heard others use imgur or SCA but I have never tested them myself. personally, i'd like to use google photos but I don't think google has enabled image linking yet either.

    curious how others who are impacted by this situation are handling - upgrading to paid PB service? moving to new provider?

    thx in advance!
    I collect Pedro Martinez, Mike Piazza, Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers prospects and Trevor Bauer (and anything nice that catches my eye)

    I moved to google photos a while back when photobucket would no longer allow me to rearrange photos within an album.

    I like google photos better, though it seems i end up uploading photos from my computer more often than linking now. I used to just copy and paste from the google photo albums, but that doesn't seem to be working now.

    Just downloaded all of my pics to my computer, then deleted my albums. Guess I am done with photo bucket.

    Is anyone gonna pay that crazy price of 399/year? I guess if you had thousands and thousands of photos on there, or if had had no backups, or if you had more money than time. I just don't see this move working out for PB. More likely: a handful of people pay, everyone else abandons the site in disgust. They won't even get site traffic to drive ad revenue anymore.

    I use fcb albums. I edit the pictures beforehand and upload. most are for personal reference anyway but all are stored and shared when needed. no problems.
    though it would be cool to organize a folder after all is uploaded. can that be done?

    My 'bucket is so out of date but still moving all of my scans is going to be a huge PITA. Probably going to use the FBC album, need to check it out....

    I logged onto Photo bucket the other day for the first time probably in 6-7 years-so horribly out of date but still scans that I need. Will probably switch over to Flickr in the near future, but will still be a pain in the neck.

    I'm shocked Photobucket still hasn't backtracked on the decision yet with all the negative PR-people aren't actually paying them are they?!? Can't imagine a scenario where they come out on top of they don't reverse this
