Photobucket Fail

As I'm sure you've heard by now, Photobucket has made the questionable decision to disable all image linking unless its users pay up $400/yr. I am a long time Photobucket user and you will no doubt see a lot of this



here as well as on many of your favorite web sites.

I am not going to pay the ransom. I am hoping that the backlash will cause Photobucket to reconsider this decision. If not, I will have to go back through and try to manually repair all of the broken image links. This time around I will either upload them directly to this Blogger site, or I will implement my own photo hosting solution. If I decide on the latter, I'll share the directions for setting up your own photo hosting site. It is much less expensive to do than paying Photobucket.
