So PhotoBucket apparently now has decided to charge nealy $400 per whatever to let you host images on them and post them on third party sites. IE, the only bloody reason I got a PhotoBucket account in the first place, which was free before.

Screw them, though. I have a Tumblr. I know from experience that you can post a picture to Tumblr, and even if the post and the account that posted it get nuked, the picture will still be there on Tumblr's site, so you could technically no longer have a Tumblr account and still be hosting your images there, because that's how much of a towering pile of shit their code is, that you can't ever delete a picture off their website, not really.

So yeah, I'm hosting my images on Tumblr now.

The $400 is for something that's major overkill for a normal user.

To get third party linking you "only" need the account that's $9.99/month or $99.99/year. Which is *still* overkill for me.

Me, I'll move my images elsewhere. and update the pages that need it. Probably move all the less than R rated images to my own website, and the R & X-rated stuff (which Photobucket won't take anyway) to one of the photo hosting sites that specializes in that.

Fortunately, I've always known better than to have the only copy of anything on a website. So I'll Just delete images from Photobucket as I correct the urls on LJ, DW, and my personal websites.

Then I'll see if it's possible to actually "remove" my Photobucket account. And I'll be sure to notify them that they are too remove my files from their servers.
