Apparently Google Chrome and Foxfire have found a way to access the photos that Photobucket.com does not now allow you to post to 3rd party sites anymore without paying a high price.

"In the cases where former/current PhotoBucket users haven't deleted all their albums, Chrome and Firefox now have an extension, Photobucket Embed Fix, that will display 3rd party hosted images. It will fix all your broken pics, no need for you to do anything, it runs entirely in the background.

Click Tools>Add-Ons (Or press CTL+Shift+A) >select Extensions > enter "photobucket embed" in the Search box (upper right corner) > then click the install button."

I just installed it and it worked perfect.

Interesting. 

I deleted mine. Screw them. 

I wonder, however, about how Firefox and Google can access our photos free when we can't?

I added it but I'm not sure how to make it work. Do you still access it thru Photobucket like before?

Bob, once its installed, any pictures hosted on photobucket and posted on here, old threads, will now show the pictures. My shooting off the bog pop post for example in the shooting range area, the pictures now show up.

Can you use it to download new photos from Photobucket?

It will show the new pictures you upload and post if others have this fix added to their computers. I personally will no longer use photobucket and will go back through my important posts and fix those for good.

Get it while you can. Now that I can see my pictures, I can replace them with my new photo server.

Photobucket held my own photos hostage and tried to blackmail me into giving them extreme amounts of money. I will not add an app to help them stay afloat indirectly, either.

I downloaded all of my photos from Photobucket but couldn't get my videos to download. I had to do the photos one by one and it took forever.

I got lucky thanks :Grace to the notice given here by this forum.  When rumored that Photobucket was going to hold photos hostage and charge$, I immediately went into PB, stashed them all in one album, then downloaded the album with all my photos at once and then logged-out.  I could not recover any videos though.

The next time I used PB I tried to post one of my PB images...that's when they locked me out.  I no longer use PB.
