Looks like KP's photos are now hidden behind the Photobucket paywall.

I kind of see their point - they have to pay for that bandwidth that's used when a linked image is called for.

Their fee for the upgrade seems a little high though - $400 a year...

Larry,

I view it as extortion. " Perils of Pauline; pay the rent or else".

BTW, I have no dog in the fight.

Nor do I.  Until I lost the connection between the webspace and my URL, I just used that.

Extortion - I tend to agree, which is why I commented on the amount of the fee.  I think most folks wouldn't flinch at $50, but what they're charging is outrageous.

I clicked on the Photobucket display yesterday and KP's photo was displayed. They want you to sign up but I didn't and still saw the photo.

So I tried it today and they didn't. Photobucket must have closed a loophole.
