ekoppen, sadly, very true. :(

I am going to be moving off. I am waiting for my clever cyber kids to come and assist with alternatives. I think this is nothing more than greed and I do not wish them well. :evil:

I am not at all pleased, and I am not even a big photobucket user.

I feel that they are behaving like computer a ransom-ware virus "pay up or you will never see your hard drive again'

Very unprofessional

I use flickr.com Their free option is very good. You only use the pro version of you want in excess of 50GB of photos.
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

I have looked at Flickr but does it have a photo editing option? (Enhance, size, crop, text, etc. If it does I couldn't find it ? But then, that wouldn't be the first time.

Ughhh Must be honest.. I do all the editing myself :/
Dont think there is a cropping / editing feature... But I also never looked for one.

As well as a cataloguing capability Google's free Picasso has cropping, corrective filters and text Copyright/Signature capabilities. A very useful facility allows the edited photo to be exported to a folder with a specified size ready for upload. See our TR's for examples....

As you can see in the attached, Picasa has been discontinued

Flikr does have editing options, however it has been disabled for a few weeks, pending an upgrade. It is one of the options available for each photograph, so when one clicks on the photo, at the side, there is a menu offering sharing, etc, as well as editing.

I have been with Flikr for 10 years, and it's always been just fine.

whoops sorry about that;. I have always checked picasso is the latest version (39.x) and assummed no updates equals stable. :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh:

Google are just not updating the (most excellent) desktop app but suggest moving to Google Photos.

Given their propensity for sharing your data etc. I am reluctant to move to that at the moment.

I will post a link to my previous download of picasa if anyone wants to use it... (no longer supported by google)

thanks for the heads up :clap:

just noticed this article on bbc... Amazon and eBay images broken by Photobucket's 'ransom demand'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-40492668

it's a shame that historic posts on forums worldwide, like this one, have been detrimentally affected. '"Bulletin boards across the globe are being crippled as previously vibrant threads with detailed images are disappearing.'

The pricing for directly linked images is seen as extortionate. ..
