I've moved lots to Imgur today. Great way to spend a Sunday FFS... I hope it stays true for a while


So do a lot of other people, myself included.

Quote:
F**kbucket are number 663 busiest website in the US based on Alexa rankings and Imgur who do the same free photo hosting are 11, so it is not as if Photobucket had a monopoly!”


This debacle reminds me of another website years ago that used host photo's/pictures for free and then started charging, it soon vanished from everybodies PC and lips. To it's credit it did give users a chance to recover and move their photo's/pictures before closing your account if you didn't pay.

It's either that, or...

Dump all your images out of photobucket.
Upload them to an alternative provider
Edit all the img links to point to new images

I'm doing the latter, bit by bit. It's a pita.

Man this sucks!! I don't have much time these days to deal with this stuff, I barely get time to jump on here to catch up on the latest goss!!
I guess I'll take advantage of my unemployment and start dumping my images tomorrow, as long as the boss doesn't hand me a "To-Do" list... ;)

Don't suppose there's a way to do this in bulk, like a find and replace?
Most of mine use a common URL cause they're in the same gallery, just different image names...

People on ebay, using the photo hosting should probably be paying for it anyways, or using ebay hosting.
