    So... it seems photobucket no longer allows third party hosting of images. All of my images for this site are now blocked. For a frugal $399 per year, I can have the pictures allowed for outside linking. Argh.

    Stefan, any advice? I'd hate to see my Resources, Comet Resto page, etc no longer be available to the users on this site.

    Ok, cool. 90% of my forum photos come from 1 album. Does that make it better or worse? Lol

    I think some of my Steering wheel stuff is in a misc album. We could try that first.

    It seems photobucket has realized that $399 per year for 3rd party image hosting was a little too steep. Now they offer a $99 annual upgrade for non-commercial image housing tailored for forums, non - commercial embedding, etc.

    if people keep waiting them out theyll eventually drop there price
    another option is to save every single image to your computer . then upload them again wherever you want but that takes TIME and STORAGE depending on how many pics you have on there it could take a very long time.

    Yep, I have a couple hundred photos. Don't have the patience to download each one by one. It is also annoying that they also mysteriously no longer support batch downloads...
