That doesn't work for my existing images, did you edit your images within PB and the suffix suggests a pre-edited version?

For my photo above I just edited the link name within the post without going on to PB itself and doing anything to the image there.

Just got my notice on email today. None of my pics are efektet yet....also I have not used PB for a while..... I was planning to start uploading pics of my last ship as sone as it is finished ( depending on how sunny the summer is). Just think I'll sit on the fence a few weeks and see what happens, no way I,m paying 400 usd. I see some of you are suggesting other sites, will look at them.

Just means you need to apply the fix as shown above if you want to make your images visible again on this forum, for example...

...shameless stolen from your workbench thread James for illustrative purposes only :ha:

Received the email today. Checked my workbench and my pics have gone :cry:
If they don't like the 3rd party hosting why did they have that facility in the first place? And 400 dollarydoos is a little too much for this proletariat.

It gets even better. I have a paid Plus 20 account and apparently I won't be able to hotlink after Dec. 2018. Granted, that's a way off but I've got years of model photos stored there. It'll be wicked fun moving them somewhere else that's not highway robbery and I hope I remember to cancel my PB account before they try extorting $400 out of me for the "privilege".

Read the TOS: http://photobucket.com/terms which is bad news for anyone not already paying out the nose. This has to be one of the most suicidal business moves I've seen in a while. I've been paying them for years and now they're just going to fritter that away in an ill-conceived cash grab.

So they're also putting the boot into users who are already paying them and wanting the same extortionate amount of money. Typically, this looks like a case of loyalty, schmoyalty - a lot of companies bang on about having customer loyalty and the importance thereof to them yadda, yadda, but ultimately in many cases it's just a lot of marketing hot air. They don't care and the best deals go to new customers. Apart from PB who appears to be willing to rob all and sundry!

Thanks for this Al, it's worked for me too. All my images had disappeared from every one of my builds but I have just edited them all with your fix and all pics have come back.

Unfortunately I couldn't do the GB threads though, because these are sadly 'Locked'.

But, being a cynical old git, I bet this workaround is only going to be a temporary fix until PB rumble it.....

Time to look elsewhere for image hosting. To be honest I was getting a bit fed up with PB anyway, it was getting painfully slow to use, dragged down by ads etc. and (for me anyway) it wouldn't let me do multiple uploads of several pics at once, had to upload them one at a time, which made forum contributions painfully slow to do. Maybe they should now replace the 'B' in their name with an 'F' :lol:

Thanks again,

Zee28
