If you’re embedding images from Photobucket to other websites, prepare for an unpleasant surprise. They have changed their subscription rules, and consequently broke links of millions of images across the internet. In case you want to embed the photos from Photobucket to another website or forum, you have to pay $399 per year to make the photos visible on third-party websites again.
According to Norvic Philatelics, this change happened without any previous announcement. Everyone with the lower subscription level will have to upgrade to the highest one in order to make their images visible on other websites and forums. And as you can expect, this made many users feel cheated and furious.
