    Yeah, I'm kinda bummed too, I've been paying to host pics there for a long, long time...but the software hangs up and is buggy so I think it's time to get my pics back from them. I surely won't be giving them more money, when they have been collecting from me annually for years now.

    That's a shame John. I thought it was only people that had the free service. You're right about their "buggy" software. I thought it was just my equipment until I talked to a few people. One guy explained it very well. "It's never as easy as it should be". Too inconsistent. Good luck getting your pictures back in-tact. Maybe because you were a paying member, they won't give you a bunch of corrupted crap back like they did me. It's almost like they were pissed that I wasn't going to pay them and ruined quite a few of my pics.

    I can't believe that everybody hasn't removed their pictures from Photobucket long ago when they tried to stick it to you. What does it take to wake people up?

    I've never payed anything, I created a new PB account to get around that, so I have 2 there, PB for me is all my car stuff, personal stuff I don't post. But I need to get my pics there too if I can, then delete them there.
    For the members cars photos we use Flikr, it hooks with Wordpress, So far that still works.

    One thing that came out of the whole PB thing, every forum now has and encourages their members to use the site uploader. Host sites are done. Now even the other host sites hates PB. Lol

    There is an add on with Firefox that will let you view the PB picts, not sure about actually downloading. Maybe a screen print function on your computer?
