Intentional Royal Screwing – Photobucket breaks billions of photos online, upsets millions of users: Digital Photography Review

 

I never used the service but it appears millions have and are now WITHOUT WARNING  totally screwed.

One has to wonder what is happening in the photo industries tangent enterprises.  Google dumps the great Nik plugins, Apple going to Hi Sierra will kill all 32 bit programs, Micron who bought Lexar was able to suck out what ever technology they needed and kissed Lexar and the consumer base that uses it out the back door and now Photobucket turns to digital black mail meaning good luck if you ever want to see your images again.  WOW.

Hang on to your seats folks because it seems like there is a trend taking place.

 

Photobucket recently started charging $400/year for a service that used to be free, breaking billions of images across the web in one fell swoop. Users are NOT happy.
