Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


The Photobucket problem was the way they allowed for direct links that showed full-sized pics without having to visit their website. This meant they did not get the advertising revenue which they relied on for their site. With so many users as they state they have then even $1/mth would have seen them rake in plenty of revenue and people wouldn't have minded.

Other free sites do not let you do direct linking and only give you a text link which you need to click and visit the site to view the pics. They get their advertising revenue but people prefer to have visible pics in their blogs and forum posts so it is not as attractive to them.

Flickr allows the direct linking, provided the link to Flickr itself is not removed and the pics have the appropriate Flickr recognition, as stated in their ToS.

For now yes... When they are the only ones left doing it, they can quickly change their ToS and decide that by "X" date, all accounts must be paid for or linking will be disabled etc..

Photobucket had paid accounts and they still kicked them off the system so that they could make them pay $400 (as opposed to $50) - so don't put your entire trust in them..

Remember, if you are not paying for a product, then you ARE the product..

Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


Hi Jalal/Kev

I received that email from photobucket on Monday advising that I was 3rd party hosting etc...naughty naughty and my Avatar pic and signature pic were replaced by the photobucket notification to upgrade. I Got my Avatar pic to work using Flickr as per Kevin's instructions (deleting superfluous info from the pasted URL etc) but using the same technique, I can't get a picture added to my signature. Just the modified URL is displayed as you can see under my signature details.

Any clues as what to do?

Jalal,
I notice you still have your Avatar and signature pics displayed. Is that because Photobucket hasn't caught up with you yet or have you managed to save a Flickr pic to your signature.

cheers all.

Re:


Hi Dave,

You don't need to host or add the "contributing member" image to your Flickr account, as I have already had the codes for those pre-made and posted them HERE for everyone to use. Those images as well as my own avatar and signature pics are being hosted on the forum own servers, so they're not impacted by PhotoBucket.

Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


Now Jalal, I like your Avatar slide show.
Before I attempt to create a slide show Avatar using Flickr, are you or anyone else aware whether it can be done using Flickr???

I will be looking at the possibility sometime tomorrow or Friday when time permits.

cheers

Re:


Thanks Dave, it was done using a program called "Ulead Gif Animator" which I think I downloaded from the internet ages ago. Not sure if Flickr is capable of doing it.

Flickr didn't seem to like my "cheers" animated gif I used to have in my signature Dave, but not sure if it was a file size (as in dimensions) or file type problem.

It worked fine for me Kev and it even asks you for the output size option.

Re: PhotoBucket became a paid Photos Hosting Service


Yours is a 90 x 90 and my "cheers" is a 57 x 19 so I'm going to edit it to be the same 90 x 90 and see if that works.
