    Hi,

    Wasn't sure which forum to put this in, so I chose here.

    Those of you who used to use Photobucket to post your pictures in the threads and liked how easy it was, might be pleased to learn that Photobucket seems to have mended their ways.

    You may remember that they used to have the BB links available as part of the free account, but then they changed it to only be available to paid subscribers. I was sad when this happened, loved how easy Photobucket was.

    Anyway - Photobucket seems to have updated their website (I believe it is still in Beta) and free BB links are included in the free account again. The site is still a little buggy - but I have been able to get the BB links copied into my forum threads and they work just fine!

    Hopefully when the site comes out of Beta they will keep this a feature of the free accounts!

    I never stopped using it persay(my sig image and the many 52 feature challenge stills I used are still hosted through them), though I only used the direct link with DPF's image code versus using their default bb link for fear of getting locked out. I can only imagine that they lost so much business with the perceived PR snafu they changed it back if to retain some membership...

    I used to use photobucket but I now use tapatalk to upload photos straight from my phone so much easier

    Yes, the TapaTalk upload is great. Often though, I am on the computer, then it doesn't work so well for me. LOL
