I wonder if it is even legal what they have done.
Essentially they have taken the pictures (property) of most of the members hostage and are demanding a [large] ransom to get it all back.

An alternative could be Postimage
It can also be embedded in the forum.

No need to register as a user but if you do, you can find your uploaded pictures back.
It can automatically resize the uploading picture to various sizes.

Example
resized from 1600 x 900 to 640 x 480 (but retaining the original dimensions makes it 640 x 360)

Image
Black vultures in Spain

Resised to avatar dimension (100 x 56)

Thanks DEF!!!

I am currently researching other options as well, including direct upload...just don't know what to do about the 1000's of pics already here...there may be nothing we can do!!

After staying up half the night researching this, I found many others (forums/blogs) in the same predicament as we are..misery loves company...LOL

WOW! This is awful. My heart goes out for anyone whose photos are being held hostage by PB. :tantrum2:

Thanks for the heads up about this Mary Anne. I may set up a Postimage account as a backup.

I am having no trouble with Photobucket. A while back I paid to increase my file capacity so I wonder if that is why I am still good. Interestingly enough, I did have to log back in just before posting the latest picture of Una to the Indy Market Tower thread.

Hopefully that may help, gigi..though I have read that others have paid to increase storage and their pics are currently being held hostage by PB...who knows...my account is far from being full...but I do post a lot of pics...maybe that was part of the trigger...who knows...Carolyn's disappeared a few days ago...and in addition to mine being AWOL, Bev.'s are gone and so are loza's...I'm not sure who else..

I'm done with this issue for a while since its making me :girlcrazy: !! Figuring out how to post pics moving forward isn't the main issue...its how to recover, if possible, all the pics we have posted over the past 8 years. That's the heart breaker!! :girlsad3:

You are just so sweet and thank you for suggesting that, but unfortunately, its not a forum issue but an individual Photobucket Customer issue. I'm not quite sure how many of us its currently affecting, but so far its me, Carolyn, loza, Bev., Catbird, Hanny. That's the short list. I really haven't traveled around the forum to see if there are others..I'm just hoping that PB comes to their senses and at least restores the links to past pics. Those are the ones I'm worried about. We can all figure out how to post moving forward using different methods. I have a few other things to try, but everything I have tried to restore old pics from anyone just has not worked!! :tissue:

My background it a graphic about 3rd party hosting. The header is still there, but the fun background is the message about 3rd party hosting.

Image

And here is the background I see. I think plain white would be better than this, but don't go to any trouble for me. The best is a long-term solution.

For those of you still seeing the background...please clear your cache, log out/log in, refresh...whatever...I deleted the picture that was generating that image very early this morning...it no longer exists in the phpbb software...so, if you are still seeing that background, its probably stored in your browser cookies somewhere.

Once I cleared my cache and refreshed my forum page, I ended up with the white background...

Let me know if any of those suggestions work..
