    We actually pay for Photobucket - the free service is fine, but for $20/year the "Pro" service gets rid of ads, allows multiple folders/security, up to 5MB images, 100MB vids, etc.

    Still the free service has built in limits, so you can use it as much as you like - I know people with multiple maxed out freebies and they've never been called on it!

    The 'Bucket seems alot faster too - mass Prinny image migration?

    I wouldn't pay for any of those sites. The premium service gets rid of ads...so?

    I use Firefox and I haven't seen ads in ages.

    No ads (for anyone, including family and friends - simple), much bigger image uploads, much bigger video uploads, multi-level security, unlimited file structures, bulk uploads (nice D&D UI), upload-n-encode video, some slick slideshow/audio enhancements, etc.

    $20/year is so little for the extra perks - from our perspective, it was a simple decision. That's why they have *choices* for the end user.

    In my personal opinion, I would find all that stuff a waste. As you can easily upload many files to different sites, such as Youtube, Imagevenue and Imageshack

    Ad wise, people could just get Firefox as it would eliminate the problem rather quickly.

    God dammit Prinny. Will they be deleting all existing images or not?
    Looks like I gotta go back to PB.

    [underlined] Exactly, just a way we decided to go - we were talking $20 so I don't think even if the site went down today, I'd worry too much :lol:

    FWIW, I have a number of high end co-lo'ed boxes supporting a pretty stout [enterprise class] network (with loads of storage/bandwidth) so I could very easily deploy images and video onto those servers, but we liked keeping personal stuff isolated to a simple, easy to use image hosting solution.

    No biggie :)

    Why pay the premium to remove ads when Adblock will to it for free?

    Why do you feel the need to type "in my opinion"? Is your dog now typing your messages for you? Of course it's your opinion.

    Just a suggestion, try out Firefox

    It's faster, better and safer to use than Internet Explorer if you don't use it already

    If you subscribe, will they still delete ~*scandalous*~ pictures you upload on Photobucket?

    We have our album (and all sub-albums) set for private. I would think *then* you could upload whatever content you'd like. You can still link it out to message boards, other sites, etc.

    Will try uploading some questionable material (think: leather) and see what happens. :devil:
