Back in the day when Photobucket was free and was the preferred hosting site for photos
You could upload as many photos as you liked and link them to websites and forums very easily
Its the one everyone used and preferred
Then along came mobile phones and Photobucket was no longer popular
They changed the way it worked to suit mobiles and the single picture uploads for facebook, twitter and similar(remeber Myspace???)
Because of the popularity and a new technology called apps, that they could charge you to use
Photobucket changed again, they went from unlimited hosting to having a limit on how much space you got for free.
If you subscribed and paid a ridiculous price you could have unlimited storage space.
Most would find 7 to 10 GB adequate back then especially when most cameras were 4mb
When you are uploading 50 to 60 photos per run or as Roy was doing 300 to 400 a run
You soon run out of space
so a 2nd account was started to get around paying
But they changed the way it worked again and made your old accounts inaccessible
They cut the links to all your photos with one of these

Today while visiting one of the old forums I used to frequent
I came across a new post regarding old photobucket accounts
They had done some searching and found a fix
Now it does not restore your photobucket account or gives you access
But it does make all old photobucket photos appear
To me that means I can access photos from 2009 that I have not seen since the last lot of changes
I can now copy and save those photos again
They basically become my property again
The links
For those who are using Google Chrome as their browser, download this extension

chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... apbifiaedg

and for those who are using Firefox as their browser, download this extension

addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... 5219095970

The pics that were once blocked can be seen again.
This unblocks all photobucket photos you look at
So with this I can see ever photo that was posted using photobucket by anyone
I can see my own, I can see Ray Maher, and anyone else who used photobucket but never paid
They do work and need to be installed to your browser
Chrome or Firefox
Not sure if one is available for Internet Explorer, does anyone still use that??
They do actually work
