Earlier today I needed to remind myself of a technique I had used during my Northlight puffer build. On looking through the build log, I was surprised to find the pictures had re-appeared (rather than the Photobucket blackmail presentation). None of the videos worked.
When Photobucket dropped their bombshell, mrlownotes posted a link to an add-on fix which worked for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers (very grateful!). I added this add-on to Firefox on a laptop which has a broken case and only works with the power supply plugged in but did not add it to the one I use daily. Hence my surprize when the pictures appeared today!
I think (but cannot be certain) that the videos worked with the downloaded add-on but they are not currently viewable on either laptop.
Has anyone else experienced a change?

Well, whadya know?! My pictures are all back as well, on my Android tablet so no special fixes in place. Perhaps the powers that be at Photobucket realised the mess they had made and have tried to rectify things. But I can't bring myself to thank them, and I certainly won't be using PB again  <*<

Only Temporary for a limited by the looks of things.


 Welcome to the New Photobucket!

 Photobucket has new management, and we are liberating your images!
As of today, your hosted images are live.
Photobucket has a new management team that wants to do the right thing. We are committed to earning back your trust and offering comprehensive and flexible image storage and hosting options for our customers. We’ve taken your feedback and made some changes to our pricing model that allows us to offer competitively priced plans that fit the needs of all of our customers.
For a limited time, our current customers’ hosted images have been restored and Photobucket is introducing a new pricing plan that is built around everyone’s needs.
In an effort to improve our customers’ experience, we’ve also moved away from an advertising-based model and have eliminated a portion of ads from the site. 
Photobucket pioneered the image sharing and hosting market 15 years ago, and our new management team is committed to returning Photobucket to the premier imaging service people had come to know and trust. 
There are more positive changes on the way, but for now we are excited to share this new compelling subscription option, as a testament to our dedication to you, our valued customers.

Wow !  My Photobucket images are back, but for how long I do not know.
I have not received any communication from them.
Obviously the site effectively died when the previous owners got mega greedy and resorted to blackmail.

Do I trust them?  Definitely not.

Thanks chaps for your replies. At least I am not going potty - no more than usual that is!
It will be interesting to see what logo the "New Management" come up with when the pictures are removed again.
Too much damage to public relations to ever trust them in the future!

Learn from history. "Limited time" might be forever or it might be next week.


This is your opportunity to get your photos back & store them somewhere that you control.

It wasn't me Martin, it was Mike (Corposant) who spotted the pictures were back. And I guess most don't need to recover the photos, we probably still have them. But what I can't do is edit the original posts to attach the images directly or from another source. So at the moment they will appear but as soon as PB restricts access again they will vanish again. Is there a solution? I guess none of us are going to pay PB any amount after the recent hoohah.

Apologies, thanks Mike (Corposant)   :-))

Easiest way ( for me anyway  ok2 );

1.  Save your Photos from Photobucket to your Laptop, PC, Hard Drive, Cloud service, ModelBoatMayhemImages.co.uk ,etc.

2.  Start a new Topic ( in same section, same name ),

3.  Copy the text from the original posts to a new post,
    ( might be easier if you have each open separate / two browser Tabs )

4.  Re-add the photos to the new posts,

5.  Save new post.

6.  Let me know when you've done them and I'll manually move them across to the old posts.   :-))
