As of today photobucket.com has decided to go for a money grab and will no longer host photos and pictures to 3rd party sites like AzBaja.com. photobucket.com is looking to charge you $399 for the privlage of hosting your photos.

My recommendation would be to remove all your photos from photobucket.com and not give them a dime.

Types of Accounts, Pricing and Limits

Visiting : There is no cost to visit the Site or to register as a Member.

Free account : Each individual Member gets one free account that provides 2 GB of free storage or space available for your original photo files, or videos under 10min. The free account does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting. If a free account Member exceeds their Content Limit, their account will be immediately suspended and they will need to become a “Paying Member” (defined below) in order to continue accessing their account. You can upgrade to a Plus account at any time.

Ad-free Account : The Ad-free Account offers Members the ability to use the Site without seeing any third party banner advertisements when logged into your Ad-free Account (note, viewers of your images within Photobucket will see ads unless they, too, have Plus accounts and you will continue to see Photobucket offers and announcements). This account level is available for $2.49 / month, payable by the Member on a monthly recurring basis.

Plus Account : The Plus Account offers several paid options that may give the Paying Member more storage, bandwidth, 3rd party image hosting, image linking and/or other services as outlined below. Once and during such period of time in which you subscribe to and pay for a Plus Account, we will consider you a "Paying Member." Please note that all Plus Account subscriptions are billed annually at the commencement of the service. Photobucket may also offer a monthly billing option for its Plus Accounts (see terms and restrictions, below).
Available Plus Account Plans : Photobucket offers the following Plus Account

Plans:
o Plus 50 Plan: 52 GB of Storage for $59.99 / Year. The Plus 50 Plan does not allow any image linking or 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 100 Plan: 102 GB of Storage for $99.99 / Year. The Plus 100 Plan allows for unlimited image linking but does not allow 3rd party image hosting.

o Plus 500 Plan: 500 GB of Storage and unlimited bandwidth for $399.99 / Year. The Plus 500 Plan allows for unlimited image linking and unlimited 3rd party image hosting.

I just posted a new topic in Problems and Errors forum about the same thing. I have coined a new version of the site name:
Phototoilet.

Greed will flush them entirely down the drain.

Looks like you can use tiny pic.

This was on their site and had the IMG code listed.

Photobucket is getting a lot of heat about cutting us off. they may reopen 3rd party hosting again.

Sweet. This killed tons of websites. Granted we do take a free ride, but still that was way to much etc. ask for a few bucks for a year, or something. $12 for a year is fair and it will get more people to play than that huge charge the want every one to pay.

Thanks

The alternative tinypic suggested by wideopen is quite awkward to use and is owned by Photo(toil)et. I fully expect similar charges to be applied REAL soon.

Another note is that without 3rd party hosting, what purpose does their site or any other similar serve anyway? I have a hard drive and a backup drive to store images on. I could also use free cloud service if I want. I seriously doubt many users will upgrade at the outrageous price they suddenly demand.
