Photobucket picture wipe out.. Work around found it seems

Recommended Posts

Mods apologies if posting this isnt allowed.. I just thought many BM'ers would appreciate this workaround.

 

Gents, Ive been trying to look at some of the excellent models in some of the older Group build albums, I was perturbed to see that photobucket had wiped out large chunks of the image galleries :(

 

A bit of googling found me on reddit looking at the musings of many a disgruntled forum user, they posted this chrome extension

Now I've added this to my browser (not sure if a version exists for firefox etc.) I can happily look at images on here without coming across the dreaded ''please upgrade your account to third party hosting''

 

Cheers chaps! :yes:

I believe there is a Firefox version, pity there doesn't seem to be an Android version, that I can find anyhow. :(

Curiously got a message from them, with new offers, which are quoted as Introductory, colour me super sceptical, but I would want to know what the future price will be, if it stayed at that I would probably take it up, but no way can I trust them to do that, they have been trying ever since the great Ransom debacle to get us back, but they are not to be trusted in my opinion.

One thing that did happen though is that they did put up all the photos again without the ransomware, now I need to figure out how I can get some back, that I lost a while back

I got the same eMail from Photobucket stating that they had allowed them to bee seen again rather than the ransomware warning, however some are visible and some I still get the ransomware banner.

 

I'm looking for a fairly stable site to host pictures I put on forums, but I'm not sure I trust Photobucket, and now Flickr and Smugmug have joined I don't know what their future holds.

 

I don't mind paying for the service so long as it's not extortionate.
