Default Photobucket No Longer Allowing Free 3rd Party Hosting

Yes, you can no longer embed your photos via a link. I mean, for free that is.

From now on if you want to embed a photo in a post via Photobucket, they charge the low low price of only $399.99 A YEAR!

What a bargain!

Thank god it wasn't $400, since that would have been WAY too much!

I'm going to see how things are over at flickr...

That is due to having too many 3rd party hits. They do have a max on that. Not sure what it is as i don't ever hit it.

Yep.

I will download anything I have stored there and discontinue my usage of Photobucket. With this unannounced change it's no longer useful to me.

I didn't think my stuff has too many hits. And you're sure you're not paying anything? I mean, of course you'd be sure. But the story is finally getting some headlines:
